    Very comfortable bed. Location suited out needs

    2 bulbs were not working but replaced quickly. Breakfast a little overpriced. Old magazine in room. Unable to supply new version. No decent light for applying make-up.

    Fabulous

    The bed was outstandingly comfortable and the situation of the hotel couldn't be better for being in the centre of Manchester.
