The biggest advantage that the Light offers is the excellent service and incredibly positive nature of it's staff. The gentleman that greeted us on our arrival was a joy to engage. I cannot recall his name but he had a shaven head and a Geordie accent, if that helps. He is an absolute keeper and adds value to the business. Location was perfect.
Their are some simple things that can be added to make the accommodation just right. A full length mirror with a convenient power socket next to it in all of the bedrooms. A bedside cabinet on both sides of the bed. My spectacles cost more than the hotel bill so I'd prefer them to be off the floor. We couldn't fit a vauxhall insignia in the hotel car park. Their was parking opposite in a multistory car park but it's locked overnight and we had to check out at 4am to catch a flight. Luckily the reception allowed us to park on the ramp into the hotel car park for the night but if this had been occupied who knows what we would have done.
Service from staff was extremely good, had a few problems with the room, nothing extreme and staff couldn't have been more helpful and on the ball as they were.
The room was clean, modern and comforable
Room was well presented and staff could not have been more helpful during the stay. Paying for the car parking space is well advised.
The location was perfect and having a tesco next door is ideal, the view and balcony was a lovely suprise
The car park was quite small and hard to get in and out of
The complete layout of the apartment, we had booked with friends so it was 2 Bedroom apartment, the rooms made you feel you had your own space though still together to enjoy as a weekend break
Could not fault anything good staff at reception on booking in & out very friendly
Very nice 2 bedroom appartment in the middle of manchester. fridge stocked up, 2 double beds spot on with tellys in each room. great location with secure parking nearby
£200 deposit a bit steep but got it back (i think)
Great location, huge rooms, great views, nice staff
It was a good layout for a 2 bed apartment, well equipped kitchen , noce lounge comfy beds
Very hard to open and close both patio doors, rooms were not ready at 3 pm as advertised
the staff especially kevin made us feel very welcome also the restaurant simple was lovely even though there was an error they made apologies for this and was genuine
I stay in Manchester a lot and I wouldn't stay anywhere else but The Light,apartments,spa and staff are faultless.
Clean and comfortable apartments in a fantastic location, excellent, friendly staff, fab views over the city.
Great location, great freedom as if at home, highly recommended.
We visited Manchester to attend an event at Manchester Arena. The Light was clean and perfectly situated. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the view from our apartment was fantastic. Everything was as described, except for the towelled robes, but not a problem as I asked at reception and they provided them. Would definately stay there again.
Car park was a bit on the tight side but it was still nice to know it was safely parked during our stay.
Rooms were outstanding, staff were first class, and the location was seconds from the city centre
