We'd booked tickets for a show and wanted a nice place to stay for the weekend as it was our wedding anniversary. This place looked lovely on their website and when I booked I added a note saying it was our anniversary. When we arrived to check in, we were told that we had been upgraded to a suite. That...

Great location. Hotel had a reception and bar with good drinks offers. One thing that I found to be a bit ridiculous was...

Dear Tc H Thank you for the lovely review from your stay here with us recently and for sharing your experience here with others. I am very confused with this late check out fee of £75.00 per hour, I agree it is a ridiculous amount hence why this is not a charge inflicted at the Light ApartHotel. Hope to see...

The room was great. It had a kitchenette, double bed (probably not the best mattress but more than comfortable), bathroom with nice big shower. It also even had a washing machine which came in really handy. It was in a great location, close to the good shopping in the northern quarter but also close to the more commercialised city square...

Dear amurt4 Thank you for the fab review from your stay with us in the Studio Apartments, as you can clearly concur even our most basic of rooms are more than enough for a short stay and also provide much more than a standard regular Hotel room. The Car Park spaces we have are designed around the structure of the...

I chose to book a room here because I was looking for a hotel with a suite, at a decent price, for a daytime business meeting. The room was certainly suite dimensions, with a room big enough for 5 to sit around a table in relative comfort. Best thing about it was the amazing view of the city .... simply...

Stayed in hotels in Manchester for 4 months, this was the best of a lot that i tried, great for slightly longer stays, like home from home. Good sized accommodation, great views, with personal facilities, very comfortable, I used it as a base of operation for working in Manchester, would highly recommend it.
