This is a fantastic hotel in the heart of Manchester. I arranged an off site meeting and overnight stay for 14 people and the organisation, facilities and hotel staff were all excellent. All the arrangements were made at fairly short notice and the hotel was extremely accommodating. In particular I would like to mention Ruth Pollitt who I arranged everything...

from reception to tea the whole experience is relaxed and cosy. The rooms are spacious and quirky. Love the atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and nothing is a problem. There is lots to explore in the hotel and something different from top to bottom. Didn't have time to enjoy the hot tub
