We were lucky enough to stay in the duplex Penthouse Suite and wow! A home from home ( except much more of a wow factor!) with spectacular views and absolutely everything you could need. Staff...

Being on the upper floors makes it a quieter location for the centre of Manchester and it being summer we enjoyed...
