    Historical Traveler Reviews Malmaison Manchester

    You have to be posh to stay here !!

    from

    My boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Malmaison for Valentines weekend. It wasnt cheap at £129 a night. We thought it seemed very swanky and posh and the staff treated us like we didnt belong there ( we weren't wealthy enough!) The room was alot smaller than we expected but still very nice and clean. Mini bar was stupid prices, £1.80 for a can of coca cola! . Location was good for night life and shopping and within walking distance of Piccadilly Station. I would stay there again but would need a bank loan first to pay for breakfast or dinner !!

    Don't believe the hype

    from

    On a recent visit to Manchester to see some old Uni friends the Malmaison was recommended as a good place to stay. Early signs were good having considered the web site. Telephone contact was speedy with the reservation being confirmed within minutes. On arrival I was pleased with the efficiency of the staff and liked the decor. It had a great first impression. If I had left then I would have been happy. The room was SMALL. There was only just enough room to walk down the side of the bed and everything just looked surface clean. There were obvious signs of wear and tear. Not much evidence of individually styled rooms as promised. Breakfast was simple and unimpressive but the service was friendly and efficient. In short nothing special, a hyped up Travel Inn and most.

    Overpriced but nice

    from

    Agree with many of the comments here: the standard rooms are pretty small - only enough room for the double bed, not enough space for open suitcases. At 6ft 4in it feels cramped when you're trying to get dressed. The bathroom was great - large and well equipped. The view out the back of the derelict building is special, but at least no-one is looking at you! The service was fine - they were happy to let me into my sister's room to put some fizz and nibbles in for her wedding night, etc and the public areas are great. I'd try something else next time I'm up there, though.

    A real let down

    from

    Stayed here for Valentine's weekend. Won't be back! Hotel is all style and not practical.

    - In the room the wardrode wasn't deep enough for the hangers. If you opened the TV cabinet you couldn't get past the end of the bed. The mini bar snacks were past their use by date

    - Breakfast was a nightmare. Couldn't cope with a full hotel. We were told there would be a 30 minute wait and they'd call the room. No call!

    Ordered full english and it cam minus the sausages and mushrooms - they'd run out no appology! When I spoke to the 'lad' in charge he couldn't care less

    - And to top it all when we checked out they tried to double charge us twice and even when we queried it they tried to claim that the 250 2 night package price was per night!

    A real disappointment and I certainly won't be going back - plenty of other choices.

    Rude rude people

    from

    We stayed here for my birthday weekend Jan 2003as we had some friends up from London.The room was ok, but the service and the attitude of the people on the desk / room service was shocking. They got the bill wrong, the room service order wrong and were in no hurry to apologise!I would never step foot inside this place again!

    Stylish Hotel!

    from

    Stayed here for one night. Booked a suite which cost 90 (internet booking). Lovely, stylish suite with very attractive decor and gorgeous bathroom with huge shower cubicle! Staff were friendly and helpful. Bar was very expensive, as was room service. However the location is excellent for nearby restaurants, bars, shopping etc in the centre of Manchester. Room was clean, but not spotless (needed to be hoovered!) Really nice hotel, would definitely stay here again, but probably get a room (65) rather than a suite.

    Overpriced

    from

    Stayed here in April 2003 lovely room comfy bed but mini bar was very expensive, better off going to the local shop. The view to the outside was a looted old office. Location-wise it was great for nightlife. I think overall for 125 a night I expected a bit better. Its all expense whatever you do in the hotel and there are other much cheaper hotels around if you just want somewhere to sleep.

    Great decor and rooms - Bar/food and service does not match up

    from

    Good reception areas, v good rooms for the price, above average size and nicely furnished. Hotel is let down by ordinary bar area and less than first class service, restaurant has ambitious menu but the result is just ok for the price. No parking, though NCP is next door 14 per day.

    Malmaison - love it!

    from

    Stayed at the Malmaison on our way to watch England play Greece at the World Cup Qualifier. Beautiful hotel - really modern and chic, very tastefully furnished (black and red interior was really nice). Loved the rooms (though a bit small - just fit a double bed). Lots of choice for breakfast (including steak!). We booked through one of the online hotel companies which worked out to be cheaper than booking directly from the hotel and included breakfast.

    Great location too - walking distance from Picadilly train station.

    Stay there if you want a really nice luxury break or if you're on a business trip.

    The "mal" maison

    from

    Horrible!!! Save yourself the frustration and avoid staying at the Malmaison. The room was tiny and dingy. The view from my window (and, from all others, as I was told by the staff) was of an abandoned building complete with broken windows and graffiti. The bathroom was not clean and there was no cold water - - I almost scalded myself in the shower. The plumber put the hot and cold lines too close together. The hotel was aware of this hot water issue but failed to warn its guests (seems like they are waiting for a law suit before taking any action). The staff was unresponsive (that is, if you could find someone as it took several calls to reach the front desk.) Overall, this was one of the worst hotel experiences I've had.

After a coffee we returned to the hall which is a ...
