"Review of the restaurant"
Met with a family member who was staying at the AC Hotel for a few drinks at the bar and a meal, so this is a review solely of the bar and restaurant area as I didn't stay at the hotel. The food on offer was of a decent quality, as were the drinks, however where the hotel really shines is the staff. They were very friendly and attentive while we sat at the bar and made excellent recommendations while we ate. Highly recommend popping in if you're in the area and ideal if you're a guest. On a side note; access to the hotel car park isn't immediately obvious. It's at the back of the hotel off the main road. Look for the gated car park with barriers and you should be okay.
"Would stop again"
when we arrived the car park was listed as full and the street was overflowed with parked cars (despite the signs) we had to go round the 1 way again and call the hotel to work out where else to park. they gave us instructions on how we could get in which was great. check in was fast, simple and welcoming. the room was impressive, large very comfy bed, flat screen, iron/ironing board, very comfy large leather chair, could've spent all night in the room it was that comfy. Reception called us a taxi into the city (which cost about £8 to northern quarter) and check out was quick. Only downside you're paying for a 4* hotel plus extra for parking only to be next to an IBIS budget with lounge music and shouting.
We usually stay in the city centre but gave this hotel a try. A nice hotel and room but let down by just a couple of small things. I know this is going to sound pedantic, but whenever I've travelled miles to get to Manchester, I always drop my bags, have a quick cuppa and whatever biscuits is in the room before going out. But no biscuit! Just a little thing but I've never stayed in a 4* hotel that has scimped on something like that. also no hand soap in the bathroom, so after I'd had a visit to the ladies I had to start unpacking my case to find my soap so I could wash my hands. Again just a little thing but I've never been to a hotel that didn't supply a small bar of soap. Oh, we did ask for an early morning call as we had an early flight. We didn't get it. We mentioned it on our departure and they checked and yes we had requested said call. I've seen this mentioned a couple of times so it definitely needs addressed. But to be more positive, it is a nice hotel and I would return.
"Needs to improve"
I stayed for 2 nights for a local conference. One first appearances the hotel is clean,new looking and modern. I was greeted with a sincere smile and dealt with efficiently. The room was spacious and laid out well. Comes with a hairdryer and iron and board. The TV was a bit tempremental and would always come on at high volume and does not come with a sleep timer. The meal the first night was bland and not hot. The second night a lot better, though some of my colleagues complained thiers was cold again. The waiting staff are amazing and coped really well. It is a shame the kitchen and management did not respond as well and with such grace,humour and professionalism. Bottom line, would I pay to go' No.
