This is a property in need of refurbishment and cost cutting is very apparent. The toiletries are now screwed to the wall in the bathroom. The mini fridges are empty and switched off rendering them smelly and useless. The bedroom furniture is very tired with mismatching elements starting to creep in such as the broken desk lamp in my room. I’ve stayed here on and off over the last four years but I won’t return until the property significantly improves. There are now far better properties in Manchester for the same price.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa. I am sorry to hear that we failed to meet expectations on this occasion and appreciate the feedback. We have an ongoing refurbishment programme in place at the hotel, as you can imagine this is rather costly and timely and therefore all work must be prioritised too. I hope you do choose to return in the future as I would love for you to see the improvements made. Kind Regards Steven Hayes Hotel Manager

The room we were given was not what I expected. Richard the food manager gave me another room and my son a separate room. This man could not have been more helpful. These two rooms were lovely, and the breakfast was brilliant.
