Stopped recently for one night in an executive apartment and having stayed here before in a premium, I would say that I would not choose executive again. I found it to have a smaller living area than the premium so I would save the money and although the executive was on a higher floor I don't think it was worth...

Fantastic to stop in an equivalent hotel suite for half the price. Great reception and staff friendly and efficient. Lovely to have a kitchenette and proper bathroom as well as a sitting room. Will definitely convert to Aparthotel stays when ever possible! Convenient for the city and cafes and eateries as well as local supermarket and travel. Parking a bit...

I agree that the apartments are good value for money, and a really good location for a night out. Just a few mins from Deansgate locks and 5 or 10 min walk into central Manchester. Was surprised that even on a Saturday night that there was very little noise from people coming and going. Apartment was a good size and...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and had to leave a £100 breakage deposit for the room which was immediately taken as we were still at the front desk from my account, I was told 3 - 4 working days for refund but after 2 telephone conversations and a visit to my bank it actually didn't return into...

I booked this as a Lastminute top secret apartment for less than £60 so a lot cheaper than hotels in the area. The 1-bed apartment was spacious and clean and loved the atrium. Decor was good and bed comfy. I checked in late (around 11pm); man on reception was very polite and welcoming. Wifi included so no additional charge like...

Stayed at the blue rainbow on the 18/4/15 and it was lovely. Room was clean and modern. Tv was bit dodgy due to bad signal but that's the only minor problem. Short walk to deansgate and bars/cafes/shops. Pleasent stay and would definitely stay again and recommend to friends

Stayed here many times and always been happy with blue rainbow. But this time we had an awful bed which made an awful noise whenever we moved. Located in Deansgate Locks it is a fantastic location for visiting any part of Manchester .

Stayed as a family group of four. Read all the crap reviews and were a little apprehensive. No need though as the apartment was clean, totally noise-proof and well appointed. Yes there were a few minor niggles, but nothing that would attract the kind of hysterical reviews of some guests. The only major concern was that the shower door was...
