    The hotel reception is fabulous, as you enter you will enjoy the design. The rooms have a very tall ceiling which is significantly appreciated by me. This is not common in the UK as buildings over all are not tall.

    The rooms have a fan which works perfectly most of the time but I am not sure how it would work in a hot summer day as there is not any central air conditioning system.

    Good central location, stunning lobby and friendly staff. Nice looking rooms and architecture

    Noise all night from screeching trains right next to the hotel. Hottest day of the year and our room didn’t have air con, just a fan that was blowing warm air, could only open the windows a few inches and had an unusually warm floor. Was unbearable so had to get a room change in the middle of the night. Changed into a room with air con which was better but still had the noise from the trains

    .Very good breakfast offering - staff pleasant and willing to help

    Thought general cleanliness was short of what would be expected of a 5* hotel. Had to move room as leaking tap in bathroom and no air conditioning. Bar closed at 11pm!

About

Overview

With its clock tower and striking Victorian architecture, The Principal Manchester is an unmistakable landmark in the city's skyline. A magnificent, terracotta Grade II listed building, the hotel has a history dating back to 1890, when it first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters. Opposite Oxford Road Station and just a 10-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly, The Principal Manchester is perfectly placed for business travel and weekend getaways, and is close to many of the city’s attractions.
