    this was a delightfully modern hotel with excellent views across the city.the pack of food essentials was a bonus.

  • Family with children

    The staff were extremely helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The location was ideal for the city centre and trains station

  • Couple
    9.2

    Excellent location, friendly reception and we were provided a basket of breakfast things even though we only stayed one night. We were on 10th floor so had a great view too.

    The kitchen supplies could have been better - the two knives were really blunt and there was no peeler (granted, most guests probably won't try cooking a full meal from scratch like I did!)

    i cannot fault anything me and my daughter thought the whole place was super and i have been telling everyone about it. cant think anywhere nicer tio stay. a bit noisy with disco music at night from outside but hey that cant e helped didnt spoil it for us

    none . 1st class

    was near to the shopping mall, nice location, nice stuff,

  • Couple
    5.8

    Had nice TV's in both bedrooms and in the lounge. Kitchen was very modern and had very good equipment. They had nice breakfast freebies in the fridge with two cereal milk, bread, jam, juice water and yogurt.

    Toilet seat was broken. They had no instructions of how to connect to wifi plus the phone was broken so couldn't contact reception without travelling back down and up. The sofa was worn out and the table was very unstable to eat on. The lounge was very small compared to other manchester apartments I been to. Not worth the price not enough value for money. Also no A.C. And one of the windows were locked with the blinds broken so couldn't even close them to block the sunlight.

  • Group of friends

    The light was centeral to Manchester just opposite the Arndale centre. The spacious rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to store our baggage both before we were allowed in the room and after we had left, giving us the freedom for more shopping! Excellent would reccomend and use again.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I stayed at the light for my hen party with my 20 hens and everyone commented on how lovely the apartments were. The light was excellent value for money and it was in a great location, a short walk from the shops and entertainment. A home from home! I would stay and again and recommend to all of my friends.

    When my friends and I arrived at the hotel there was only 1 person at the desk to check us in and it took 1/2 hour to check myself and my party of 20 in.

    Really friendly and helpful staff. Just the greastest position fior central Manchester. Supermarket right next door.means easy to get supplies

    Car park is very small and tight to get in and out of. Room needs a fresh lick of paint, too many marks and scuffs.
