We had an upgrade on arrival so I can't really review the value versus the price. However the apartment was very well equipped for two and when we had guests the staff were happy to bring extra place settings. Being on the upper floors makes it a quieter location for the centre of Manchester and it being summer we enjoyed...

One things that folks traveling here should know is the car park, yes it's secure, but if you have a big car you really will struggle to make the manoeuvre required to get into any of the parking spaces. The price as well, I understand it's city centre, and off street, but when some guests are paying upwards of £120...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 14th floor. The views from the living area and one of the bedrooms was amazing. The rooms had everything you would need for a short break. Only down fall was how noisy it was early hours of the morning. We could hear the people below us talking and doors slamming. Staff...

My family and I stayed here in the run up to New Years Eve. We upgraded to the duplex penthouse because we felt that the executive was a tight squeeze for a family of 5. The penthouse was luxurious with its finishes and ultimately glossy kitchen. However, there is room for improvement. An apartment this size should be shown to...

This is in one of the more interesting parts of the city centre. A stones throw from the main shopping areas and within walking distance of both stations. In common with most 'modern aparthotel places it looks like it's been furnished from the esoteric end of TK Maxx when you enter the lobby. It looks very 'boutique'. When you get...
