We booked the roof top terrace for a small surprise birthday party (50 guests approx) and everyone thoroughly enjoyed every minute! The staff were amayyzing, the barbeque was fab and the ambience - oo la laaa! The stunning canopies with beautiful outdoor heating added a touch of class as well as comfort throughout the evening. Highly recommended.

Breakfast was really tasty the...

We booked Great John Street as a last minute late availability deal and we weren't disappointed. This is a great boutique hotel, good location in Manchester city centre, ideal for Spinningfields and The Opera House. There is limited parking in the area and we requested valet parking which was taken care of very professionally. The hotel looks great and has...

This place is a little jem, ideally situated for Spinningfields. The rooms are well thought out and in someways unusual. The parking is well managed. We stayed just for the one night but I can definitely say I will be returning. The breakfast was as good if not better than the other five star hotels in the city. The staff...

I stayed her last night, and was very happy with everything. Very good staff, good food, well situated and lovely room. All good, hence the fives stars . The member of staff who served us a late dinner was particularly good, very personable and efficient. All in all a great experience.
