Had the misfortune to stay overnight here prior to a 10 hour flight to the states. Whilst initial impressions were good, the receptionist couldn't have been nicer our stay went down hill rapidly. We were booked into a downstairs room (The Langham I think) which is right next door to a generator. A few conversations with front desk eventually resulted...

Clearly the note left for me has been missed and can only apologise for this. It is now very difficult to look into your complaint as the posting on Tripadvisor is anonymous with no details of name or date of stay. If you can contact me through another channel I would be happy to discuss the matter, investigate and seek...

We visit this part of Manchester fairly regularly but had not stayed at the Bowdon Hotel previously. We always have a busy schedule so make limited use of hotel facilities. In this hotel, the staff were helpful and pleasant, the breakfast good, the bar convivial but the bedroom substandard. It was listed as "Superior twin" but had long eaves and...

I have to agree with CB7982 and say that this is, without doubt, the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. I have to, at this juncture, point out that we stayed here 2015 but, to be perfectly honest, I am appalled they are still able to trade and many of the issues we experienced still apply here and no...

Really liked the hotel, but one night Mr Upstairs in the room above us came home late (3am!!) and was stomping around and fell over at least once, which was (a) disturbing and (b) frustrating - I could use stronger words but you get the gist. Apart from that liked the hotel.

The lower level corridors and stairways left me feeling nervous about what the room might be like, as they really need updating. However the room was pleasant enough with a TV and kettle. Staff were polite if a little to rushed to give us their full attention. Breakfast was very expensive (£14!) So we didn't bother. The best thing about...

Appreciate the you have taken to post this review but regret to learn that you were disappointed. Saddened that anybody should feel nervous and can only apologise if you felt this way but pleased that you found the room to be pleasant. Noted the comments about the breakfast price which is very similar to that of most mid market hotels...
