Positive Reviews

Historic building

The Palace is a truly impressive structure according to guests The hotel is Grand Victorian in design and features Art Deco detailing There’s a sense of wonder described by guests who were impressed by the location's stature.

Classy rooms

Guests report rooms are classy, tastefully styled, and spacious While some hotels come with more cramped quarters, you should feel comfortable stretching out in these guest rooms.

Convenient to metro points

Guests rave that the hotel is very close to nearly all the local metro points You should have no problem taking a stroll to one of the metro junctions and hitching a ride to any and all of the points of interest that Manchester has to offer Many of these points will be within walking distance, however, thanks to the hotel’s location within the city centre.

Negative Reviews

Lack of on-site parking

Looking for convenient parking? Look elsewhere The Palace does not have any on-site parking, so you’ll have to park elsewhere, pay a fee, and return to the hotel This is an inconvenience that got under the skin of some guests.


Numerous guests indicate that depending on where you are located in the hotel, street noise can infiltrate your otherwise calm evening even if you have all your room’s windows shut.

Breakfast not vegetarian friendly

If you’re a vegan or vegetarian looking to adhere to your strict diet during the morning hours, this hotel may not be for you There isn’t much in the way of vegetarian options on the breakfast menu.
