Opposite the much-loved Canal Street and around an 8-minute walk from Piccadilly Station, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better-located Manchester hotel.

Looks far better on photos than it is...

Positive: Close vicinity to o2 ritz. Negative: Drinks price absolutely ridiculous, Small glass of wine and one terrible pint- £21.
Response from Management
Hi Matthew, Thank you for providing us with feedback. The bar is actually a completely different company to us, so we have no control over their prices or practices, but I will pass the feedback on to the correct management. Best wishes, Grace

Faisal Booking.com November 2023

Excellent, compact and full option...

Positive: I loved the kitchen, so modern, clean and useful with state of art equipment and utensils. I especially appreciated having a washer and dryer in...
Response from Management
Hi Faisal, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us, and for the high score. Yay, I`m so glad you loved the kitchen and our amenities. I understand totally what you mean about the cobblestones, they can be tricky. But they are part of the original street and as a grade 2 listed building, it is really challenging for us to make alternations. I will pass the feedback on to our design team though. Best wishes, Grace
