Please please please change the color outside th reception at the entrance...horrible... We usually stay in another hotel in Manchester but it was full so we opted for the Macdonald. The general impression we got is it's dated...furniture is old, and service is parallel...they would be a very good hotel 20 years ago, they are ok at best in 2017....

Room, staff, food, service all amazing. If you're staying in Manchester I recommend this place. We had two rooms for 5 people and both rooms were huge. We use restaurant and room service and the staff were really helpful. We used the carpark which was pricey but very safe.

The English breakfast is amazing! The staff were very helpful and polite. Even when very busy they still did all they could to help. Rooms were clean, shower was great. A selection of complimentary teas and an iron in the room, I didn't need to ask for anything really.

A great hotel in a central location. My room felt luxurious and I was delighted with my Arran Aromatics toiletries. I received super service from reception. I enjoyed my stay and would happily recommend it to others. I enjoyed my meal which I had using room service.

Lovely hotel. Friendly welcoming staff. Spa package booked. Prosecco, fruit and chocolates in the room. Near to Piccadilly station, easy tram from Victoria station. The Spa is excellent, very relaxing, it maybe could have been better with a splash pool, hot tub or jacuzzi. A good range of treatments available. Very enjoyable meal in the restaurant on Saturday and a...

Room was lovely - very modern and clean. Hotel needs to sort lifts and stairs out though - one lift for 8 floors is very chaotic! Signage to find your way isn't great either. But a very good location and decent overall.
