Richard and the team were able to accommodate us at extremely short notice on a very busy evening (wedding party booked in). We were rewarded with a lovely room with a delightful mezzanine bathroom (clue: it's Room 21). Valet parking is SO convenient. Staff great, food great, room wonderful, roof terrace adds an extra quirk. Excellent access to Selfridges etc....

We stayed in the Classic Grand Suite and it was lovely, used the valet parking service which was convenient and also ate/drank at the hotel. Beautiful rooms and the service from staff was fantastic, it doesnt feel like a hotel, more like someones home, probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in.

From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have done more to make our stay a real treat. Hard to believe that this quiet retreat is yards off Deansgate it is so quiet. Furnishings and fabrics just quirky enough and really comfortable We splashed out on a mini suite and would highly recommend it as worth the extra
