                  Not much needs a lot of money spent to bring it up to the standards of its competitors

                  Size of the room was very good, plenty of space

                  Room was very cold, had to send for a heater

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  Great staff. Really good food. Really good location. Good shower facilities (power shower). The rooms are really well heated.

                  Our room was oposite the railway track and the windows were not double glazing so it was noisy and disturbed our sleep.

                  Location right nr station.

                  Room was a little on the small side, not really great for money spent.

                • Couple
                  5.4

                  Nice club sandwich.

                  Our room had mould on the ceiling and walls and the hairdryer started smoking when my girlfriend turned it on, we had to have another one sent to up the room. I pointed these things out to the receptionist when I was leaving and he waived my room service bill which was fair enough, however I wouldn't stay at the hotel again or recommend it to any of my friends because my room was sub standard (described as an Executive Room too!!!). I've honestly stayed in £25 a night BnB's in Blackpool that were cleaner than my room at the Palace.

                  8.2

                  Hotel chosen at random for overnight stay before flying off to Ireland. Ashtonished at the building and interior, made extremely welcome by engaging staff, fabulous room, received help with directions to central Manchester area and...enjoyed a pleasant stay made memorable by both the desk staff and restaraunt/bar staff where nothing was too much trouble. I am told (by Ann Marie) we are making a further visit soon! Thanks to all at The Palace.

                  That we only spent the afternoon and evening there, needed a longer stay to explore and learn a little more about the hotel and area

                  lovely building, outstanding reception, seams lovely large room

                  1.hotel bar would not serve at bar but I was told to sit and wait for service, however I could not find an empty table, thus went away to have a drink outside. 2. went down for breakfast at 8.30(serving till 11am) and bacon and sausage were not very fresh in fact hard.

                  Very Friendly Staff, The location is great, a lot of buses around and a train station. Nice classic building. Comfortable beds

                  The emergency exit was actually a door leading to the next room and you could listen their noise during the night. the hotel is 4 star but the room was more like 3 star.

                  We were going to the Palace Theatre so the location was perfect and we travelled by train so we alighted at Oxford Road

                  Lovely decor, loved the breakfast which was served in the morning - plenty to choose from. Room was very comfortable and very quiet. Would consider going back.

                  I only stayed one night for business but it was mostly clean and mostly comfortable. It is very unusual in it's appearance and decor, but not unpleasant. Excellent breakfast. Location is excellent for Oxford station, theatre, central Manchester. I don't think I would stay there through choice.

                  It was just unusal in it's decor. Quite dark, high tiled walls and too spacious. I should imagine some people would really enjoy it's quirks.

                  Good room and good location

                  The hotel was hosting several functions on the night. The room was above one of the main rooms and was very noisy until approx 1-30 am. Despite speaking to the duty manager, nothing was done. If the hotel do have functions on then the people attending those functions should be given the rooms directly above the rooms being used so as not to disturb other hotel guests. The hotel manager was not very sympathetic and it made the stay not as good as experience as it would have been otherwise. Always check where your room is before booking !

                  The concierge was helpful and very nice.

                  The lady who checked us in wasn't helpful nor nice. The man who checked us out didn't seem to know what he was doing.

                  Room was nice, comfortable. Good to have separate bedroom and bathroom away from the living area so we could put our daughter in a separate room.

                  Lots of noise from the street disturbed us, we seemed to be on the quieter side of the building too so probably worse in other rooms. Probably not such a problem on other days but this was a saturday night and manchester was in full swing. Service was generally good although we did have to ask twice for a cot, having already stated the need for one when we booked.
