Décor both inviting and impeccable, with communal areas offering the ideal hub to relax, people watch or catch up with business contacts over a coffee.

The lovely lounge, with flat screen television, sofa, hospitality tray, along with both still and sparkling water, was a nice space to kick back and relax.
The suite boasts a beautiful balcony which provides the opportunity to soak in the River Irwell views.

Frankie and Alana, the staff on duty, warmly welcomed us and did an amazing job of looking after us throughout the evening.
Signature starters included the wonderful Winter Salad, a mix up of Fresh green beans, broccoli, oven roasted butternut squash and mixed leaves dressed with the yummiest unique pumpkin seed and coconut oil. Also, a sharer selection of Cheese and Biscuits with grapes and house chutney. All washed down with a fab Franklin and sons drink.
Mouth-watering mains included the Vegan Stack, a tremendous tower of fresh vegetables, plum tomato, chargrilled aubergine and courgette, sat on a red lentil and onion puree, giant pearl couscous and topped with crispy fried vegetables. Also, the Two King Scallops dish pan fired with butter and sea salt alongside Romanesco broccoli, crispy pancetta a dauphinoise gratin and a homemade Salsa Verdi.
Delve into delightful desserts such as the cracking Chocolate Mousse Tear Drop, with a mix of white and milk chocolate on a sponge base surrounded by strawberry puree. Then the Rice Pudding Sphere Served with a lush hot chocolate sauce to melt the sphere and reveal the rice pudding and mixed berries within, for the ultimate in indulgence.
Head back to your luxury Duplex Suite, dive into the complimentary hospitality tray of treats and enjoy some chill out time, in this contemporary and comfortable space.
Rise and shine, with a ‘suite’ start to the day and have a lovely lazy lounge breakfast, delivered directly to your door.
Pop on a fluffy robe and slippers and tuck into a brilliant British breakfast or opt for their veggie option along with a full range of continental offerings such as fresh fruit, pastries and cheese selection. All washed down with a nice brew or two.
Another perk of staying at the Marriott Victoria & Albert Manchester is that currently they have a collaborative partnership with Bannatyne health club & spa, located a few minutes away off site, on Quay Street, where you can use their full facilities including gym, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
