The hotel is much more gorgeous than the pictures and description depict. Has quite a lot of history as well. Mr. Rolls and Mr. Royce first met there in 19045 (Rollsroyce). Would most definitely return!
“A Manchester Classic”
The Midland is a classic hotel by anyone's standards and a Manchester classic in particular. The building is a wonderful example of Victorian brick architecture but one that has been updated internally to provide large comfortable and surprisingly modern rooms. This was our first stay at the Midland and we'd definitely stay again. It's not cheap... not at all cheap... but the quality is very high and it really gives you a taste for the high end of Manchester life. Just hanging out in the lounge and people watching was great fun. It's a great place for business meetings - in fact a plaque informs you that Mr.Rolls and Mr.Royce met at the Midland to form their well known company.
“Great Hotel, perfect location”
We stayed at the Midland for two nights. The overall impression is very good. The room was compfortable, good sized and with decent view. The bathroom was especially confortable and the Occidant soap and shampoo made a pleasant surprise. The location is ideal being very close to picadilly gardens, St Peter's square, Oxford road and Deansgate locks. Just two things I'd like to mention, we didn't book breakfast incluted and theat costed us 30 pounts(!!!) for a standart English breakfast - too expensive for what it was. The wi-fi coupon could not be halted and restarted at a later time. Basically if you log in you can't pause it and restart a couple of hours later... Come on now! this is not midland level...
Typical old English grandeur but needs new carpet. The fitness room is awesome!
“Reasonably priced and quite comfortable”
The hotel is very well located for downtown business in Manchester. It appears to be recently renovated, the bed is quite comfortable. Breakfast is of a nice english type. The cost of the hotel was very reasonable for what I got.
“Rooms Not Quite Four Star”
Beautiful lobby and exterior architecture of hotel. Very helpful and courteous staff, especially concierge. Gave us great info on where to eat, best way to travel , maps. Rooms do not "match" in comparison to how fancy lobby is. Older rooms, not very comfortable. Small TV with limited channels. Limited views from windows since small and high up. Updated modern bathrooms with towel warmers. Off site valet parking available. Free one or two hour internet access.
“Go see the Red Devils”
Great hotel, cool architecture. Weak service in the hotel restaurant...but not inconsistent with what I found all around England compared to what I expect.
This hotel recently underwent a major renovation. Unfortunately, it is a change for the worse. The charming English decor has been replaced with unattractive modern furniture. The previous stately lobby is now a very ugly black and steel. My ceiling sprung a major leak in a rainstorm and I had to be moved.
“not particularly impressed”
Recently stayed here for best friend's wedding. Room was somewhat disappointing - rather small and bed was tiny for a supposed double. Parking near the hotel is horrendous. Spa was not open on a sunday and room service took forever to respond to call. Oh, and the drinks prices at the bar are astronomically expensive. A somewhat tired old hotel that's had its day. Not that impressed, all in all.
