Nice hotel, interesting architecture. But I was there in November and it uncomfortably cold in the hotel room and in the breakfast. Pity as otherwise it was a nice hotel. Good urban views from the wall to ceiling windows of the people standing on the platform of the nearby train station.

If you are looking for a safe bet while on business then this place will tick most of the boxes. Good clean accommodation and friendly staff. Small gym but allows you to do what you need to do. Ate in the bar while the football was on and the food was respectable and reasonably priced. My only beef was that...

Stayed here for business last night. The lady on reception who checked me in was lovely, however on getting up to my room I went straight to the loo only to find an unexpected 'gift' in the toilet from the previous occupant. You can guess what it was (not a number one!) - absolutely disgusting. If the cleaners can leave...

I stayed at McDonald's Manchester and the service I received from Zoe in the Scottish steak house was exemplary. Great hotel and great people. I was too late for dinner. My fault! Zoe was genuinely concerned and insisted on bar snacks made a stressful day 100% better!!😀

Very spacious rooms, so big. Food is amazing it was gorgeous. Location is very near Piccadilly station about a 5 min walk from town. Only downside is that the bar prices are too expensive £10 for a glass of wine is too much.

I booked one of the panoramic suites as a birthday treat for my girlfriend and the hotel went above & beyond to make our stay memorable - complimentary Prosecco, chocolates, a card and swans with rose petals on the bed. Was really taken aback by the effort made. The room itself was spotless, great views of the city and the...

The Macdonald has become my 'go to' for Manchester now that the Malmaison is tired and expensive. The hotel is perfectly fine and has everything you need, but without being outstanding. Prices are good, there is a gym, there is a bar, and there is a restaurant... But the internet can waver, the breakfast is really busy and you need...

Stayed at this property on three occasions , and always left satisfied completely. The staffs are very helpful , the hotel offers a nice spa which helps a lot after a hectic day. Some rooms at higher floor offer nice view of the city. Hotel is very close to the rail station. Overall a great place to stay.
