Lovely stay brilliant location

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Really rate this hotel. The receptionist was so helpful when I arrived, even pointing out the tram stop for my journey the next day. My room was gorgeous, a lovely space. I'm back in Manchester next month and this will be my first choice of places to stay.

Hot in the city

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Stayed 1 night and although the room 102 was small it was comfortable with one bug problem however- heat !! There are hot water pipes running through the room which are always hot so you find yourself in a room with the air con on just to cool it down !! Incredible waste of energy and I think they know of this as the actual radiator in the room was off - had a very uncomfortable nights sleep

Nice Boutique hotel in Central

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: Felt like a boutique hotel but was priced competitively. Great facilities if you're traveling for work (free wifi, iron, kettle all the essentials).
Cons: Not enough flat surfaces IE to eat food/next to bed (only one bedside table) but given the price honestly that's such a minor point!
Location: Fantastically central and close to Piccadilly, a short jaunt to Northern Quarter, too.
I had never stayed before and it was chosen given it's good price and location. The front desk staff was excellent and highly professional like what you expect in any high end hotel, helping me book taxis and with a mending kit for my button! Good room service, and the room itself in nice shape (modern and airy, well heated). Was also surprised to have such a nice TV and well decorated room. Really comfortable stay after a stressful trip.

Great quirky hotel

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Lovely old building. Stylish rooms. Good staff, Usually comfortable beds but avoid room 410 which has wood Venetian blinds which don't work and too soft a bed for most tastes.

Standards slipping

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Location. Small but comfortable boutique hotel rooms.
Cons: General attention to detail.
Location: City centre. Piccadilly Station and Piccadilly Gardens/Northern Quarter within quick walking distance. No car needed.
Have stayed at Abode before, a couple of years ago, so booked for familiarity and proximity to rail station. It was an OK option this time round, though there was a general sense of small details getting dropped. I reported a light out on my first day that was never addressed, the wrong newspaper or new newspaper was delivered etc...small things that began to add up over even a few days stay. In fairness, there's a refurbishment under way, and the staff were very professional. It wasn't bad, but it definitely seems to be drifting at the moment, and I'll be looking at other hotels in the same price range when I'm next in Manchester.

Good Central Location

Posted Feb 11, 2015
The hotel was in a great central location and the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately it was surrounded in scaffolding which meant there was no view from the bedroom however the interior of the hotel was great with a fabulous stair. The room was very contemporary and a good size with a largest bed I've ever seen!

Abode Hotel, Central Manchester

Posted Jan 29, 2015
Pros: The location is great and the bars and restaurants are at a reasonable cost and have great atmosphere.
Cons: The fine dining room waiting staff were a little over attentive and interrupted our conversation. Rather too many inquiries about our wine order too!
Location: Near to the Northern Quarter and the Roadhouse Club where we went to a gig. Shopping areas and trams within a short walk.
A brilliant, hip hotel near to Piccadilly Station and the Northern Quarter. Very helpful and friendly staff. Both restaurants are very good and there are special accommodation and meal deals to help with the cost.

Need some help from Gordon Ramsay with Hotel Hell

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Change manager and staff.
Location: First book a room in another hotel. Very close to good restaurants and shopping
We stayed there twice before and we were very satisfied, this time it was different. 1 The facade was being restaured, the windows and the front of the hotel were coverred with tarpoling. There was a lousy apology note in the room, a copy on cheap scruffy paper. 2 No water or glasses in the room. The toiletries consisted of shampoo and body wash, what about the spa quality? 3 The hotel bistro is meant to be open till 9.45, we arrived at 8.30 and were not let in. 4 We ordered two glasses of champagne and a bottle of water, after 40 minutes we called the room service again. The drinks finally arrived, we ordered still water and got sparkling, glasses were not added. We drank out of tea cups. 5 The following day, the cups were not tidied up. 6 On the last day, the maid pushed in a full trolley of dirty dishes in the lift full of clients.

A bit disappointing

Posted Jan 3, 2015
We stayed at Abode on New Years Eve. Yes, this is an expensive time to be taking a hotel break however I would still expect that the hotel should live up to its luxury claims. It was all a bit disappointing really. The room and bathroom facilities looked a little tired, there was quite a lot of noise from the surrounding rooms and the bar and grill restaurant was nothing to write home about. The hotel is however very conveniently placed for the train station and city centre shopping.
