Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Manchester Centre

Absolutely Fine. Good Value.

from

A very clean and comfortable hotel in a great, quiet location. only 10 mins walk from anywhere in city. very close to chinatown (recommend the red chilli on portland st...just dont worry about a starter...massive portions gorgeous food).

bar was nearly full on sat evening with sky sports available good craic going, good selection of beers etc.

staff are excellent and very friendly. good selection at breakfast with decent fry (12 if you don't book with your room).

7 in black taxi to manchester united (leave 1.5 hrs before kick-off). 17 to airport.

casino is 3 minutes walk away.

internet available at a big cost! go to hotel ibis(sister hotel) next door for cheaper online thrills.

would definately stay again.

Great stay!

from

For European standards, this was a great hotel! The room was clean and a good size, considering we were 2 adults and 2 kids and the staff service was fantastic! Make sure you have breakfast included in your cost initially and if you call them direct, we found we got a better rate during our holiday stay. The breakfast is wonderful, a cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices area and a hot breakfast section as well! Would stay again in a heart beat!

My favourite in Manchester

from

Let's get the bad news out of the way first. The bedrooms are merely reasonably comfortable. Nothing to rave about, just reasonably comfortable beds, a sofa/bed, sattelite TV, etc. What I really like about this hotel is the ground floor.

Most of the reception staff are very pleasant, there is a PS2 to play on, breakfast is a help-yourself with a superb choice of hot & cold dishes, evening meals are very good and the bar is excellent. Very friendly staff.

And all this just across the road from Chinatown.

My hotel of choice in Manchester. Beware, prices range from reasonable to expensive depending on time of year and how busy it is.

Comfortable, good value for money, expensive breakfast

from

Very comfortable and clean. Was quite surprised at how good, given the price I paid (49). The breakfast is a bit overpriced at 12 a head, ie 50% of the room price for two people (didn't actually have it, just went out instead).

Parking not exactly cheap. Hotel has no arrangement with the car park. It is conveniently located under the hotel though.

A pleasant stay

from

We booked the room over the net on the strenght of its location and favourable Tripadvisor reviews. The hotel is very central - right by the gates of Chinatown, the rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was excellent - a buffet including everything imaginable. The rest of the hotel is absolutely lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and we had a wonderful weekend in Manchester!

Great value for money.

from

We stayed in the Novotel lately and were delighted with the quality of the food and service. The rooms were spacious and spotless. The breakfast was the best I have had in any hotel. All kinds of cerial, fruit and cold meats were available as well as the usual full cooked breakfast.

I booked late and found it expensive but if I could afford it I would not stay in any other hotel in Manchester as it was still good value for money.

P.S. We take up to ten week-end breaks, in the UK and Ireland, each year so I am familiar with the standards available.

Below expectations but has many good points

from

I stayed here with my sister last Thursday and Friday nights having booked it over the net on the strenght of its location and favourable Tripadvisor reviews. The hotel is very central, rooms were quite a good size, some of the staff were quite friendly and the breakfast was excellent. However, we did find some of the other staff quite snooty and two ion particular were very unfriendly. Also having specifically booked a twin room we were disappointed to get a room with a double and a quite unconfortable sofa bed. OVerall, therefore quite good but with some problems and below our general expectation.

It's almost five star!

from

No, it's not luxury - but it's fantastic value for money. What lets it down is the basic level of comfort in the bedrooms - flat carpet, hard beds and no mini-bar. But they're very roomy and clean. The rest of the hotel is absolutely lovely. The decor is modern, the atmosphere relaxed and the staff friendly and helpful. The bar looks five-star, but with three-star prices. The breakfast is fab - a buffet including everything imaginable, and the cooked breakfast cooked to perfection. Great location - check out the Circus Tavern just up the road for the most original (and tiny) pub in Manchester city centre. And the amazing nightlife that is Canal Street is just minutes away. I will be back!

Great location, very helpful staff

from

The location of this hotel is second to none - right by the gates of Chinatown, with everything on your doorstep. The rooms are a good size, very clean and well decorated.

Parking is extra and charged by the hour - 24 hours parking is 13, although there are probably cheaper public car parks around. The breakfast is very good but pricey at 12, so if you want breakfast book a rate which includes it.

We had a slight problem with the room configuration we had booked, and initially they tried to charge us extra to sort it out, however eventually this was all sorted out to our satisfaction.

I was also very impressed with how helpful the staff were - after I left an item of clothing behind they kindly sent it on to me free of charge.

Home away from home

from

It's the third time that I stayed @ Novotel Manchester City Center in less than a year. (Please, keep in mind that there are two Hotel Novotel in Manchester -- City Center and West) I like it since it's very modern in design. The staff are very helpful and accomodating. The rooms are big and so is the bathroom.

Location -- being @ the city center, it's close to the shopping area, great restaurants, bars, and pubs.

Ideal for business or pleasure trip. For family or single traveller.

Peak District weekend

... looking for. I went there once before and it was great place but I wasn't as excited this time. Nevertheless, before we knew it, we were on the train to Hope. We arrived late afternoon to peach black, cold and wet middle of nowhere. Yes, my friend told me to get my waterproofs.....you will need them more than ever. Glad I listened. Anyway a little, or if we are talking about that evening, a lot of rain wouldn't ruin our weekend.

Arriving in Manchester

A travel blog entry by jaschoy on Aug 06, 2014

We arrived in Manchester after a 6 h flight and 6 h time difference. With no sleep on the plane we were ridiculously jet lagged and with that, super cranky. We ate at a small cafe in the airport and used their wifi to plan out where to stay and how to get into the city. A train into ...
