Stayed here, staff were friendly and helpful. We were upgraded as we had a Birthday in our party they put banners and balloons up which was a nice touch. Apartments clean and stylish. Close to the shops and bars. Would recommend to stay here

Dear BustyBurnsie86 Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, I am dreadfully sorry to read your only negative point of the Light being the deposit for extras and incidentals.

We stayed here overnight for our first wedding anniversary as we were going out in Manchester as its location was ideal. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment on arrival and there were balloons and a card in our room, a really nice touch for a special occasion. The room was very spacious and has everything...

We were pleasantly surprised with just how lovely this was when we arrived. We arrived earlier than planned and we were allowed to check in as our room was ready. We stayed in a studio, which had a small kitchen area with kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge, small hob and dishwasher. There was even a washer/drier in the cupboard! The decor...

We stayed in the Light Aparthotel which had a great central location and even better cocktail bar downstairs. Well worth it if staying in Manchester for a group. I would highly recommend it. Car parking under ground or a pay & display opposite the side of the hotel.

These apartments are ideal for shopping, restaurants and the trams on market street. Parking is a bit stressful as it is a small area. The staff are very helpful and there is a 24hr reception with the bar not closing until 11pm. There is a Tesco shop next door with a Co op shop on the corner. Afflicts shopping experience...
