“Lovely staff, fab breakfast, rooms fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

My son & I have stayed for several nights at the Novotel spread over a couple of weeks. The staff are lovely almost without exception. The breakfast, as others have said, is absolutely fantastic with just about everything you could ask for (& kids eat free!). The rooms are clean, ordinary hotel rooms and the bathrooms spotless with great showers & separate loos. However, if I had to pay for a Manchester hotel room mysels I would fine the Novotel a bit over priced - it's not that much better then a Premier Inn or Ibis and can be twice the price.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back can be noisy when skips are emptied early in the morning! Not sure the heating wo...

this is a very modern clean looking hotel, a bit clinical actually. the public ares are nice but sterile. the resaon i say should it be a 4 star is the bedrooms. i have stayed in allkinds of hotels and quite often use Premier Inns, i have stayed and reviewed the one next door. the bedrooms here were no better, we had booked two. they were cheaply furnished and incredibly dull, dull, dull.

one last thing the reception staff, whilst perfectly functional, were not in the least bit friendly.

I recently visited Novotel in Manchester and found it to be more honest than many of the five star hotels that operate in the UK. It delivered fairly good and there was a great effort to assist. Most of the staff was helpful and friendly, check in/out was fast, the rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast more than expected. The location is brilliant, right under china town, next to Piccadilly square and a step away from the village with nice bars and music. These guys offer 2 iMacs in the lobby for free Internet connection which I found a great addition. I know there is a health centre in the hotel yet I had no time to visit.

On the negative side the room was very cold and I suggest management to prepare the rooms before arrival by switching on the heating some time before check in (should the know the time the customer will arrive). The room was looking in a tiny atrium that you can literally touch the resident opposite if you both lean against the window.

I would visit again yet not recommend it for travelers that have a slight larger budget.

We stayed here for two nights last weekend. if you want all the sites of Manchester on your doorstep then this is the place to stay! China Town on your doorstep, the MEN a five minute taxi ride away and Printworks (nightlife) just around the corner! The rooms were immaculate and breakfast in the morning was amazing! Highly recommended!

The bar is open 24/7 and the staff were amazing. A really good hotel in a brilliant location.
