I have attended functions at the Midland Hotel and always thought what an elegant grand hotel it was; unfortunately this is not true when the Great Manchester Run is on! The hotel was full of runners in running gear. They took over everywhere and spoilt the overall look and feel of the hotel; so, if you like a nice, elegant... More

Simply outstanding in every way. The hotel is just the perfect setting for a weekend away. All staff are polite, friendly and welcoming, especially Colin from the Octagon bar. I got married at the hotel in 2013 and I strongly recommend working with Nina. A wonderful place to visit, eat, or even to relax with friends over coffee.

The grandeur of the hotel lobby did not prepare me for the shabby, standard double room on the second floor. The size of the room and the dull decor made me feel like I'd booked in a less than impressive budget hotel. The first trip back to reception to ask for a different room was not great.
