I have stayed here six times for work purposes .The rude and pushy sales staff and the substandard service on multiple occasions are overlooked by senior management on many issues.A much better and way more comfortable option is MOTEL ONE next to the Picadilly which is absolutely fabulous and considerably cheaper.AVOID PENDULUM.LOOK AROUND.TRY MOTEL ONE.

Attended Manchester Conference Centre last week and was extremely satisfied with the service the staff provided. Nothing was too much for them and they made myself and my colleague feel very welcome.

This hotel could not be faulted from checking in to leaving excellent. My son and I were very impressed. The hot water was hotter than hot in bathroom. Breakfast was very good could not fault it. Would certainly use again. A very big thanks, oh and check the clock out you will never see another like it.

Came here for the football match with my Dad for his birthday treat. Lovely comfortable stay in a clean and smart hotel. Efficient and very friendly staff. Thanks for a pleasant stay. Will return if I'm here again for another football match.

Stayed here for one night on business, and can say that the hotel is okay. My room looked a bit tired, mainly the bathroom, as there were stains in the bath and on the ceiling. There was also a heavy thick dust on the top of the curtains, which was very off putting. The bed did seem clean though, and... More

Such a small room - packed in like sardines comes to mind. I felt really hemmed in, there is just enough room to get round the bed. This size room should only have a single bed. I was only here 1 night due to a missed train.

Thank you for offering us feedback. We do accurately describe our ‘City Double’ rooms as compact and well-equipped for an overnight stay. These are our smallest double rooms in the hotel, however our ‘Classic Doubles’ or ‘Twin’ or ‘Exec Suite’ rooms do offer more space and comfy seating areas if this is an important consideration for your stay.

Stayed here for two nights for a business meeting. On the plus side the staff were excellent - all very friendly and knowledgeable. The conference facilities were good and the food was reasonably priced and I have to say better quality than some more pricey hotels I have stayed in.

A warm welcome awaits at the pendulum hotel. Cafe staff are helpful and attentive. A great place to host a conference, or to attend a conference. Buffet lunch was superb with an excellent selection of vegetarian options, salads and hot options.
