Fully Equipped Kitchen
For many guests, the fully equipped kitchen is the reason they choose this Manchester hotel. A fully equipped kitchen is essential if you’re with kids or have strict dietary requirements. Vegans, vegetarians and those on gluten free diets will benefit from the kitchen. You may just be eating healthy and controlling your kitchen is the best way to achieve this.
A few nights per week, guests are invited to attend the social hour. During social hour you may enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks. Not only can you choose from a selection of complimentary alcoholic drinks but there’s also a friendly member of staff to pour them for you. Social hour is great for meeting fellow hotel guests, essential for those staying long term in Manchester.
Complimentary Buffet Breakfast
Each morning, all guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary breakfast. The breakfast continues the homely feel of the hotel. Where else can you grab a carton of fresh orange juice from the fridge other than home? I recommend the chocolate muffins, they’re delicious! Whilst you feast on the buffet breakfast you can enjoy 18th floor panoramic views over Manchester.
24/7 Complimentary Coffee and Tea
It goes without saying that a major part of the complimentary breakfast is the tea and coffee machine. The good news is that this machine is available 24 hours a day. There are paper cups available so you can prepare a coffee to go as you head out into Manchester. If you’re arriving jetlagged from another country and require a coffee at an unusual hour, this machine will be your saviour!
The 18th floor lounge is where you enjoy the buffet breakfast as well as the evening social hour. Additionally, you may want to chill out here in the afternoon and enjoy a complimentary coffee. It’s a homely lounge which features comfy sofas around a fireplace. Did I mention the panoramic views over Manchester?
The Den Meeting Room
If you’re in Manchester on business, you may require a quiet area to hold a meeting. The Den is designed exactly for this, it’s a relaxed meeting room with panoramic views over Manchester. Most importantly, the complimentary coffee machine is not far away. In addition, this area can be useful if you are traveling with kids and want a seperate area for them to play in.
