... and arriving at another nice looking beach it decided to go for a run was told a nice route round the inlet, ended up running through the bush and not being about to find my way out other than re tracing my steps, by the time I got back to the beach it was almost dark so decided to dive in!

... all together and then drained and mixed with the chicken and sauce and seeds.
Followed by 2 pieces of almond bread (cooked in larger tin so only about 1-2 inches high) with cheese.

Exercise: Went out on the bikes (folding) with Roger on Monday this week - sun out and a wonderful day to be out and about. Probably cycled the grand total of about 20 miles - from Gannow Tunnel on the ...

An Adventure to Say the Least!

... savings it was great fun! The morning of our second day in Manchester was spent taking endless photos of my friends cat while we waited for everyone to wake up... something else that is fantastic about staying in a house, pets! :) We went on a scenic drive around Wilmslow unfortunately the weather wasn't great (of course) so it turned into a narrated drive of the dodgy and not so dodgy areas with all the insight from a local and a trip to Trafford centre - A ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Manchester Victoria & Albert Hotel

    Perfect Pillows

    from

    A friend and I stayed one night, part business, part pleasure. The web site just didn't do it justice. The decor, food and drinks and service were first class. We spent longer in the hotel than we had planned but the surroundings were too comfortable to leave so we saw less of Manchester than we should have.

    The bedroom was great with the metal pole running from floor to ceiling. The beds were so comfortable I could have layed reading the Sunday papers (delivered to the room) all day.

    A wonderful experience and one I am hoping to repeat soon.

    Great Place to Stay

    from

    I just arrived home from Manchester and have not been able to stop gushing over this hotel. This hotel used to be a old warehouse, and alot of the original brick, wood beams and metal columns are still seen throughout the hotel. I had a room on the third floor, which is known as the "cutsey floor" due to the fact that the ceilings on this floor are only about 6 ft 2in high, my room door was only 6ft tall. The rest of the hotel floors were average sized. The rooms have all been renovated, and are very comfortable, I had the smallest room out of the group I traveled with, and thought it was quite cozy with the low ceiling and the rustic appeal of the brick and beamed ceiling. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Manchester. The only complaint I have is they could stand more sound proving on rooms facing the streets.

    One Of The Best.....

    from

    I travel extensively around the UK for work and this is one of the three or four hotels I specifically ask to be booked into.

    It has a very nice foyer & bar. The rooms are a very nice size and the beds are both large and comfortable.

    I would stress that I have not actually ever had to pay as it is always a business visit, so I'm not sure if it represents good value, but I would thoroughly recommend as a top quality choice for staying in Manchester.

    Friendly Staff

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for one night combined with a thearte trip. The hotel itself was very clean and well presented, the staff were friendly especially the concierge and the waiter.

    Rooms were spacious and had everything you needed for an over night stay.

    We travelled with a nine year old and found that the facilites for kids to eat was not brilliant. There were no childrens menu's and a lot of the food was aimed at grown up's. The meals in the restaurant at night were very expensive for not a lot of food, my daughter had one and a half bread rolls, half a dozen chips and half a chocolate mousse - for this we payed about twenty five pounds.

    I would recommend staying in the hotel, but make provision to eat else where.

    Posh but friendly

    from

    Stayed overnight as a base for a theatre trip, staff friendly, hotel spotlessly clean, prices for drinks etc expensive.

    Restaurent food not suitable for children and prices expensive.

    Rooms clean and tidy.

    Room 306 possibly haunted,my own experience.

    Unfinished....

    from

    I have just returned from a two night stay at the marriott victoria and albert on a free staff break. The hotel is in a nice area just outside the hustle and bustle of the city's streets but only a short walk away from deansgate with the free metroshuttle busses which go round town for free. A taxi would only cost you around £4 from the city centre to the hotel.

    Great experience!

    from

    We stayed here after being transferred from the Palace Hotel in Manchester, along with a few other people they had overbooked! Thumbs down to the Palace, but thumbs up to the Victoria & Albert as we had a great time! With rooms named & themed with shows made at Granada TV studios opposite (we had the Shane Ritchie Experience!) - we had a lovely time and the hotel is beautifully modern and clean! Thankyou!!

    Would not return

    from

    Small rooms, surly and rude staff, very tired decoration and a lukewarm "English Breakfast" were all features of our weekend stay at the V&A. There are better hotels in Manchester, so don't bother with this one.

    Excellent Restaurant

    from

    Stayed here for one night, the room and bathroom were a little on the small side but well furnished and very clean. The breakfast was average, the food and service in the hotel restaurant were both excellent. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient.

    Business travelers, avoid this one like a fly in the soup

    from

    This is a horrible place to be. As a business traveler, I was stuck with no internet, lousy business center, inadeqaute restaurant menu options to name a few. In the end, at the check out the computer was down and the asian clerk could not communicate in English charged me incorrectly. I am still trying to resolve this by calling long distance from USA. I am avoiding this and any other Le Meridien in future.
