Convenient for the Station

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 2, 2012

The Macdonald is a modern hotel situated very close to Piccadilly Station. The reception area is a bit soulless, but the superior double room I was allocated was spacious, with two double beds and a panoramic view (albeit of Manchester - you can't have everything!)

Facilities included TV; iPod docking station; free wired internet in room (or WiFi via BT Openzone); trouser press; ironing board and iron; tea and coffee making facilities (with biscuits).

The bathroom was well-appointed with a very comfortable bath, and generously sized separate shower cubicle.

I paid £71 for 1 night room only. Breakfast was an extra £15. I wouldn't normally have botherered with this, as there are plenty of alternative, cheaper options for breakfast in the city centre, but on this occasion I wanted to save time. Breakfast is a typical hotel buffet style (with some hot items cooked to order by the chefs), with tea/coffee and toast served at table. Perfectly good, but not worth £15 (unless you are MUCH greedier than I am).

Overall a very comfortable hotel, and good value if you don't have breakfast. My only quibble was that the bedroom carpet was a bit stained, as was the carpet in the corridor - but it was beige, which does show the dirt.

Unique Quality: It's really a fairly standard business hotel - the key selling point is its proximity to Piccadilly Station

Directions: Close to Piccadilly (exit the station by the Fairfield Street exit).

A touch of Class

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Macdonald Manchester Hotel is situated just a few minutes walk away from Manchester Piccadilly Train station. The rooms here are spacious offering an enormous bed, two comfy chairs & table, flat screen TV, i-pod speaker dock & tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom offers the best of both worlds with a full size bath and a double walk in shower. A really nice idea was a nightlight at floor level in the bathroom which meant I didn't have to grope around in the dark whilst stubbing ones toe looking for the lightswitch! The breakfast served here was fantastic. There are several self service buffet stations offering cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, cheese, bread, ham salami, full cooked english breakfast and danish Pastries if you have any room left! The breakfast was very nice indeed and the coffee fresh and delicious.

In addition to being very close to the train station, central Manchester is just a short walk away.

Discounted Room rates can sometimes be found on especially during the winter months.

Unique Quality: Great views over Manchester from my room on the 6th floor.
