This is a little oasis in the heart of manchester. I stayed overnight in baby grand. Lots of space and huge bed. Enjoyed having the novelty of the mezzanine. The afternoon tea on the terrace was a treat especially as the manchester weather had decided to shine. Breakfast was definately worth getting up for! The service was great, very polite...

We was visiting manchester to go on the coronation street tour, we stayed one night and added parking as an extra, we were so pleased we did, on arrival they took the car keys and parked my car in the car park under the hotel so I knew it was safe, the closest NCP car park was 7 minute walk...

The rooms were spacious and on arrival we were greeted with freshly made cookies and a 'happy anniversary' and a 'happy birthday' plate. We had...

We visited the Great John Street Hotel on 31st March for afternoon tea to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The sandwiches were lovely and fresh and a great combination. The cakes and scones were delicious with a good variety of flavours. The staff were very attentive without being in your face. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. A...

Had the private dining room for around 20 of us. Ambiance and location were excellent - small terrace area for drinks. Food was fab - chicken terrine, followed by Salmon, followed by lemon brûlée (the highlight). All really well made and tasty. Slight downside is that we had just one and sometimes two waiters and they brought the plated meals...

We were lucky enough to get married here this weekend and I would like to personally thank every single member of staff that we came into contact with. Over the years we have stayed in lots of very nice hotels across the world between us and this absolutely tops the lot. Our room was incredible (number 32) with a mezzanine...

I have visited this hotel several times now over the last couple of years and can honestly say that every visit has been just as amazing as the very the first time I stayed with my partner. The rooms are all individual with their own 'wow' factor and finished to the highest of standards. The rooftop bar is a brilliant...

We really enjoyed our stay in this stylish hotel where you can be yourself and the staff while friendly and helpful don't over fuss you. We picked the hotel as it is so close to the theatre. We had a simple but tasty bar meal before the theatre. Our room was really comfortable and despite being on the street was...

We tend to always stay at GJS when we go to Mancester, it's best described as a boutique hotel in the city close to bars, shops and restuarants. Customer service is great and the rooms are plush. The huge bath tub featured in the rooms is brilliant, especially as we only have a shower at home. The bar does good...
