We choose to return to this hotel every time we stay in Manchester.... with very good reason! It never fails to deliver and we always leave happy, relaxed and counting down the days to our return! It's our little slice of paradise. This year we chose to visit twice for both mine (April) and my boyfriends (July) 30th Birthdays. I...

My son was married here on Sunday 26th July 2015 - a very wet Manchester day and evening. It didn't matter at all. The wedding was perfect in every way thanks to the fantastic venue that is The Great John Street Hotel. I cannot find anything negative to say as everything was perfect. The decor was perfectly suited to the...

The hotel is very individual and has a real homely feel. We were there to enjoy afternoon tea and it didn't disappoint, we chose the gentlemans tea both preferring the savoury element. It was delicious with fresh produce and a lovely selection. We would definitely return for something special as the afternoon tea is at the higher end of the...

We spent a night here for our wedding anniversary. Booked on late rooms and got a great price for what I can only describe as a very special, quirky, romantic hideaway hotel. Everything about this hotel is stunning. It's a small boutique hotel, so very different from the usual city centre hotels. The staff and service received throughout our stay...

Lovely decor & hotel, rooms fab, great location. BUT what a shame it was the most miserable hotel I've had the displeasure of staying in largely due to unfriendly staff in places & fellow residents/users. Most areas out of bounds for "private functions" when a hotel costs more than £200 per room midweek you expect access to all areas or...

Richard and the team were able to accommodate us at extremely short notice on a very busy evening (wedding party booked in). We were rewarded with a lovely room with a delightful mezzanine bathroom (clue: it's Room 21). Valet parking is SO convenient. Staff great, food great, room wonderful, roof terrace adds an extra quirk. Excellent access to Selfridges etc....

Reviewed 15 July 2015

We stayed in the Classic Grand Suite and it was lovely, used the valet parking service which was convenient and also ate/drank at the hotel. Beautiful rooms and the service from staff was fantastic, it doesnt feel like a hotel, more like someones home, probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in.
