this was a delightfully modern hotel with excellent views across the city.the pack of food essentials was a bonus.
The staff were extremely helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The location was ideal for the city centre and trains station
Excellent location, friendly reception and we were provided a basket of breakfast things even though we only stayed one night. We were on 10th floor so had a great view too.
The kitchen supplies could have been better - the two knives were really blunt and there was no peeler (granted, most guests probably won't try cooking a full meal from scratch like I did!)
i cannot fault anything me and my daughter thought the whole place was super and i have been telling everyone about it. cant think anywhere nicer tio stay. a bit noisy with disco music at night from outside but hey that cant e helped didnt spoil it for us
none . 1st class
Good flexible accommodation and facilities, great location.
Party in the room next door...
was near to the shopping mall, nice location, nice stuff,
Had nice TV's in both bedrooms and in the lounge. Kitchen was very modern and had very good equipment. They had nice breakfast freebies in the fridge with two cereal milk, bread, jam, juice water and yogurt.
Toilet seat was broken. They had no instructions of how to connect to wifi plus the phone was broken so couldn't contact reception without travelling back down and up. The sofa was worn out and the table was very unstable to eat on. The lounge was very small compared to other manchester apartments I been to. Not worth the price not enough value for money. Also no A.C. And one of the windows were locked with the blinds broken so couldn't even close them to block the sunlight.
The light was centeral to Manchester just opposite the Arndale centre. The spacious rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to store our baggage both before we were allowed in the room and after we had left, giving us the freedom for more shopping! Excellent would reccomend and use again.
I stayed at the light for my hen party with my 20 hens and everyone commented on how lovely the apartments were. The light was excellent value for money and it was in a great location, a short walk from the shops and entertainment. A home from home! I would stay and again and recommend to all of my friends.
When my friends and I arrived at the hotel there was only 1 person at the desk to check us in and it took 1/2 hour to check myself and my party of 20 in.
the location ver centeral all facility in hand
the wifi a and the TV was not working proparly
service has dropped since they first opened, i received better treatment when i had previously stayed. Room was not cleaned to high standard as my previous visit.
central location, parking underneath, lighting good, kitchen facilities good.
would have been nice to have some apartments with one double and one twin room.
Really friendly and helpful staff. Just the greastest position fior central Manchester. Supermarket right next door.means easy to get supplies
Car park is very small and tight to get in and out of. Room needs a fresh lick of paint, too many marks and scuffs.
Excellent location, basic but adequate kitchen facilities, good value for money.
Excellent location near metro station and shopping center and tesco
