Stayed at the Portland for one night for a business trip. Good welcome on check in. Room was compact, but tidy and clean, although the bathroom looked a little tired. Large TV , tea and coffee supplies, hairdryer and toiletries in room - along with complimentary earplugs! My room was to the rear of the hotel, but I did not... More

I spent 2 night. Staff extremely kind and helpful (José, especially). Really small room, even for one. Warm, couldn't cool it. Difficult to sleep. Really nice food, although red wine really warm. Great locación, but tiredness rooms.

We had a lovely stay in Manchester, the hotel is right in the middle of the city centre. Right beside Piccadily Gardens and less than a minute walk to tram and bus stops which will take you to the likes of Old Trafford and the Trafford Shopping Centre. The staff at the hotel could not do enough to help us,... More

Dear Guest, Firstly thankyou for taking the time to let us know about your stay, we cater to hundreds of guests a week and very few take the time to inform us of their experiences. I’m disappointed to hear you didn’t enjoy the afternoon tea, as we normally get very good feedback from guests. We offer a selection of sandwiches,... More
