Had a great weekend in this hotel last week. Service was wonderful - staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast served was superb . The location was also second to none - right next to Chinatown . The only negative for us was that the bed and pillows were a bit hard so hotel owners take note ! All in all would recommend highly !

Have stayed at Novotel Manchester before - can't fault the location as 10 mins walk from Picadilly station and close to shops in city centre. Check-in was slow, room was clean but hot and difficult to control temperature ; bathroom great and good to have toilet in a separate room. WiFi was confusing with 3 different price plans on offer in the room and it was difficult to log on.

I ordered some newspapers for delivery to the room on Sunday morning. When these didn't come, I called Reception at 10.15 who said delivery to the hotel had been late but I would have them shortly. They didn't come and, when checking out, I asked again for them and was given a paper I hadn't ordered and one the receptionist had clearly leafed through (with no mags) Disappointing so I refused them. Only a small thing but was a shame.

I've stayed in several Manchester hotels for business so feel qualified to comment. A good central location but that's about it, check in & out took around 10 mins (too long in my opinion), flashy lobby and the rooms are then woodchip wall paper and dated. Poor 3G signals meaning you have to pay £10 a day for wifi.

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...
