This is one of Manchester's finest hotels. I've stayed here since I was a young girl. The service has always been outstanding and the restaurant is superb. Well worth a visit whether you are in Manchester on business or for pleasure.

First of all, having read some recent reviews, I can't really understand how someone is able to review a hotel they are yet to stay at. Very strange!
