Very Good8.0
Spacious, comfortable accommodation
Easy walk from train station with luggage. Stairs up to check-in. Impressed with spacious and well decorated room. Cookies and milk brought in upon arrival - nice touch. Neighborhood not my ideal, but was able to eat at the hotel restaurant.

Great Staff, Great Atmosphere!
The staff were incredibly friendly and the rooms were good size and decorated in a way to make you feel at home and not at a sterile chain hotel. It's the kind of place you could stay for a week and really enjoy. Wish they were all like this!

Canal-side boutique hotel
The hotel is on a wonderful canal-side block with cafes and restaurants that are alive all day long. The best part of the hotel, however, is the attentive, kind staff that helps one orient to the center of Manchester immediately.

Great boutique hotel located in the Gay Village
My husband and I had a great stay! The service was absolutely wonderful! The hotel is located in the Gay Village of Manchester and had a great vibe. This hotel also has a separate bar and restaurant which we visited. The food was delicious and we got a lot for the price. The hotel staff brought us cookies and the fixings for hot tea or coffee once we checked into our room. We had a balcony room which was plenty big enough for two people and the shower had dual heads and a towel warmer. The wall paper was pretty graphic which didn't bother us at all, but wouldn't say it's kid friendly! This boutique hotel is located right on the canal and in a trendy area close to the train station. Overall, I would dedinitely stay here again.
