I recently visited Novotel in Manchester and found it to be more honest than many of the five star hotels that operate in the UK. It delivered fairly good and there was a great effort to assist. Most of the staff was helpful and friendly, check in/out was fast, the rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast more than expected. The location is brilliant, right under china town, next to Piccadilly square and a step away from the village with nice bars and music. These guys offer 2 iMacs in the lobby for free Internet connection which I found a great addition. I know there is a health centre in the hotel yet I had no time to visit.
On the negative side the room was very cold and I suggest management to prepare the rooms before arrival by switching on the heating some time before check in (should the know the time the customer will arrive). The room was looking in a tiny atrium that you can literally touch the resident opposite if you both lean against the window.
I would visit again yet not recommend it for travelers that have a slight larger budget.
