after visiting the Midland on many occasions over the years my friend and I went for afternoon tea last month and whilst the service remains exemplary, the food could be slightly improved. We agreed that there was too much emphasis on the cakes and not enough sandwiches and neither of us liked the trendy new display boxes which have replaced...

Very good hotel. Staff very helpful, good location. Very nice feel about the place seems like a throw back to more sedate times. The rooms are very comfortable and the facilities are excellent. Would definitely return.

The Midland is accommodating and comfortable. It is large enough to absorb a large wedding party and still offer excellent service to other guests. The rooms are well appointed and splendidly large. Everything works. The bar staff; concierge and restaurant staff try hard and do well. Old fashioned luxury.

Really impressed by this place. It's very grand and the rooms are reflected in this. The bathroom was tucked away around the back of the bedroom area. The bath/shower was ok and quite powerful but I couldn't get it very hot. We would have liked to have used the pool facilities but they were closed for refurb until June. We...

What a stunningly attractive hotel. All the staff that we met were very friendly and helpful. We were at an event at the hotel so the food was pre-booked/set menu but was delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable, loved the pull out tea/coffee bar. Would definitely revisit.

We stayed at The Mdland for a weekend in April 2015 and loved it - the location was so central yet our room was quiet. The staff were really friendly and helpful and breakfast was good? Wifi a bit unreliable in the bedroom but fine elsewhere.

The Midland Hotel is a good base from which to explore Manchester and a central location for business. Whilst it trades a little on its former glories it is, nevertheless a good choice for a business or leisure stay.
