Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is modern, clean and comfortable and only 15 minutes walk into the centre. The car parking is not an issue as there is a decently priced multi storey car park round the corner from the hotel (literally 2 minutes walk.) We had breakfast there too which was great. What more could you...

Clean, friendly and well located. Traffic was an issue when arriving by car at 17:30 on a Friday but eased of by 18:30 worth noting if you are booked to be somewhere at a specific time. Parking is available at Charles Street multi-story at reasonable rates. Decent breakfast but could have been a bit hotter. Only complaint would be that...

We stayed one night (6th Dec 2015) for the Manchester Christmas Market, while the room was small it was perfectly formed and cosy.

Stayed here for business for 3 nights rooms were so small I bent over in the bathroom and cracked my head off the sink. I would possibly say that some ships have bigger rooms as standard cabins. However the staff here were lovely everyone really helpful can't fault them.

Dear Guest Thank you for offering us feedback. We do accurately describe our ‘City Double’ rooms as compact and well-equipped for an overnight stay. These are our smallest double rooms in the hotel, however our ‘Classic Doubles’ or ‘Twin’ or ‘Exec Suite’ rooms do offer more space and comfy seating areas if this is an important consideration for your stay....

Went for the Xmas markets. A small room but lovely welcome from a young lady on reception, clean, tidy room with everything you'd need and lovely breakfast. Quite central and parking was very close by. Perfect for us for one night.

It's fine for a crash pad, and the reception staff were helpful and friendly. The price isn't bad for central Manchester. Our room was very clean but tiny - no space to pass each other around the bed (and we're both small people), which made unpacking and generally spending time there awkward and unpleasant. The lighting was inadequate for dressing...
