I booked the Liberty Suite for myself and my husband over a weekend in manchester. The room was large and had a great street view of Chinatown (nice big windows so didn’t feel hemmed in). Good attention to detail and all the facilities you need for self catering. The shower room was also a good size with a nice big rain shower. There was a massive TV at the end of our bed so we could be ultra lazy!! I chose the Liberty room because of the dining table which made a difference if you want to dine in.
The Mac computer was a really good extra.
The location was great, very close to the city centre – about 10min walk from Picadilly station. The grab and go breakfast is at reception and you can grab & take it back to your room!
I forgot to take my earplugs with me but actually there wasn’t much noise at all!
The only slight gripes I had was the room took a while to heat up and being january I did feel a bit cold when I first arrived – it took a good 2 hours before it felt warm. It would have been nice to have a heated towel rail in the bathroom, & lighting suitable for applying make up (!!). But really these are minor gripes and didn’t affect my stay.
Overall I would say if you want luxury accommodation in manchester and you like the freedom of self catering this is a good value option. I would stay here again.
Room Tip: room 207 is a corner street view room with lots of windows so good view.
