Overall my stay was good. The Breakfast and evening meal were good and ample food was supplied. The bathroom was bit dated however the power shower was very good. My only issue was the windows let in a terrible draft and on a cold night it could be quite unpleasant. I actually had to pack the area with the bed...

The Portland is right in the heart of the city and this is why we chose it Turned out to be an excellent choice and very reasonably priced. Had asked for a quiet room on a higher floor and got one. The rooms facing the road are understandably noisy. Ear plugs are placed in each room for this reason. Very...

I was last at this hotel six months or so ago, and reviewed it favourably on here and said I'd return. I'm often in Manchester for work related reasons and the Portland Hotel is very conveniently placed, reasonably priced and, it seemed, a brilliant place to get some good shut-eye (the main thing I care about if I've got a...

Stayed one night which was probably enough. Room small but that was as expected. Comfortable bed, room clean and with usual amenities. Restaurant was pretty poor, slow service, very ordinary and overpriced food - my steak was tough and the other dishes served were unexciting. Were given free wine as apology for the ridiculous wait but - gosh, Portland, get...

Stayed for three nights while working in Manchester, hotel was nice enough for the price but my room was poorly located by the lifts which meant every morning I didn't really need an alam clock with all the pinging going on. I didn't find the bed particularly comfortably. Breakfast was included and enjoyable. Centrally located but car park was expensive.
