The journey is not far away and with my bags packed only a few hours left until I fly. Am just off on a final shopping trip to pick up the last few remaining items and probably find some more items I didn't think I would need until now. I just hope my baggage allowance will cope with some more things. Counting down the hours only one sleep to go. It's getting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Great John Street Hotel Manchester
My husband and i had the pleasure of staying at The Great John Street Hotel on Friday night. I booked it the day before as a surprise, i chose 'The Grandest' suite. I was quite surprised at the price as it was £205 for the night however when i enquired into staying saturday too the price for saturday jumped to £450!
we have just done the unthinkable and stayed in a 5 star hotel with a baby!
Well then... a wicked hotel, in a fantastic city centre location yet you can hear a pin drop at night (nb. this was on a saturday night!). The room we had was one of the cheapest yet was still the best i have EVER stayed in. Good quality fittings, modern decor, and a superb bathroom suite up the stairs consisting of an iron bath, walk in shower and wooden flooring.
Having originally planned to say at this hotel in October, but due to an unforseen flood we got relocated to the Radisson. The way the staff dealt with this situation was excellent, and reflective of Great John Street in general. They informed us next time we want to come to their hotel they would upgrade us. So the Wife and I decided to go on New Years Eve and experience it first hand. Not only were we upgarded to a Grand suite, in the spirit of the season we also received a bottle of champagne and two free breakfasts.
A truly five star experience!
I booked this hotel as a birthday treat. From the moment I arrived at the hotel everything was just perfect! The receptionist was delightful. She showed us to our room and to my delight I found that I had been upgraded! The room was up to five star standard. It was immaculate. We had a sleigh bed which was outstanding. Upstairs we had two baths, a steam shower (which we spent alot of time using!), a dvd player etc. I felt like it was home from home and was so disappointed when we had to leave! The hotel was so quiet too - no evidence of building work going on. The hot tub on the balcony is gorgeous - and from a distance you catch a glimse of Coronation street!! I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone - and if you get the chance, ask for room number 30!!!
Having read the reviews on this site and stayed at the hotel myself it would appear that experiences at Great John Street are a bit hit and miss.
Wouldn't pay rack rate
I booked this hotel as a surprise for my boyfriend for our anniversary and it was half price on lastminute. Beautiful room, gorgeous roll top bath and shower, nice toiletries, great bed ;o)
However, it took 15 minutes for the receptionist to realise we were stood in reception waiting to check in (poor first impression as she didn't apologise), the rooftop bar wasn't open, neither was the hot tub, and £16.50 for breakfast is extortionate.
My biggest gripe was the building site next door, got woken up at 7am by shouting, banging, drilling. Not good - take some earplugs!
This place is over-hyped and over-priced. Split level room was cool, and clearly lots of thought has gone into the decor. Shame not so much thought has gone into sound insulation, service, or cleaning.
We stayed at this hotel (for which the book rates are absolutely astronomical although we paid less at £210) in October. The reception was indifferent at best, the room nicely furnished and cleverly designed with the bathroom built into the space above the bed, but very depressing and dark. There was also the constant loud noise of building works and shouting from the adjacent building site all the time during the day.
Stayed here beginning of August 2005 - The hotel is shamelessly "boutique" - executed well (Interior design is obvious but cool) The hotel is in an old school and there is a "Headmasters study", "boys" staircase, "girl's" staircase as well as old black and whit school photos on the walls. The room I stayed in had a mezzanine bathroom and great wooden floors, etc.
