Avoid 1st floor, can be very noisy which the hotel must recognise as rooms come supplied with complementary ear plugs in addition to the tea and coffee!! Hotel about 20 mins walk from Spinningfields. Leisure facilities could do with a deep clean, small plunge pool...

I stayed in the Portland over New Year and really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is extremely convenient location wise, in the heart of Manchester just across the road from Piccadilly Gardens and two minutes' walk from Piccadilly station. The welcome from staff at reception was pleasant, and my room was large, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom too was...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on New Year's Eve. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely clean room and had a great breakfast the following morning. There was no corridor noise from returning revellers. Will definitely stay again.

The hotel came recommended to me as it was walking distance to some central bars and restaurants. and to say I have been left feeling disappointed would be an understatement.
