Stayed here in June 2016 for one night. I read reviews ahead of time, and requested a higher floor room so it wouldn't be loud; I also requested the room with 2 shower heads. It was fantastic. From the welcome once you go in the front doors, to the tray of fresh coffee and biscuits they bring up, to the...

Booked a heated balcony room. It was stunning with a roll top bath and four poster bed. Hired a bath butler to run the bath for us, perfect, came with two glasses of champagne and a chocolate dessert to share! Ordered room service which was tasty and reasonably priced. It also came very quickly. Breakfast was a little more expensive...

I had to stay in Manchester unexpectedly because trains were cancelled due to a storm. Accidentally found this hotel and immediately said 'I've had one of those days'. Immediately brought proper coffee and biscuits to my room (the coffee in the room is proper, with caffetiere). Everything is luxury and high end, the hospitality is the same. A little quirky...

I was treated to a weekend getaway by my boyfriend who with the help on the staff made my 40th memorable. There was champagne on arrival and there was also nice little surprise awaiting in the room which I thought was a nice gesture that the staff helped arrange upon request after explaining our reason for staying. Our stay was...

We chose this hotel for the location as it was convenient for everything. We had a super warm welcome and our room was spotless, warm and comfortable. I'd advise upgrading to a balcony room as I feel it made a difference. Wonderful staff and a perfect stay all around, thank you.

Ok we have stayed in a lot of hotels around the word and I would rate this as my worst experience.... The hotel itself wasn't really the problem although it's a bit old with brown wood everywhere in the room. The problem was the noise.. We aren't exactly the go to bed early kind of couple so it wasn't that....

“Beautiful rooms, great staff”
 of 5 bubbles TracyM186, 24 Mar 2017 | Read review
“The penthouse suites are fantastic and great if you wanted to do some corporate entertainment as the living area is well set out for pre event drinks for at least 8 people. With the bedrooms on the mezzanine you had to be a bit careful not to bump your head on some of the beams but this didn't detract from the ambience or feel of the hotel and our stay. We loved it and it was me and my parents - different age groups and all very happy with the attention and service we received. ”
