An Amazing Anniversary Hotel Stay at Novotel Manchester Centre #Gifted

The 4-star Novotel Manchester Centre is located, within the heart of Manchester city centre, near to all the main transport hubs such as Manchester Piccadilly & Oxford Road train stations is perfect for business or leisure.

Make your way through the revolving doors, into the bright airy reception area, and prepare to check in for a sensational stay.

Warmly welcomed by the reception team, who checked us straight in and provided lots of useful information about the hotel, including the use of their complimentary Wi-Fi while onsite, and instantly made us feel at home.

The Executive Rooms provide guests with a huge Queen bed, 55-inch LCD TV, sofa area, work/vanity desk, providing a modern and contemporary space to relax and unwind. 

Shower room was wonderful, with complimentary upgraded toiletries, and a refreshing rain shower with a unit that has a silent privacy screen, if you want to see into the bedroom while showering. There is also a separate toilet area, a spacious sink area with fully illuminated mirror and plenty of mirrors to beautify yourself.

For our Anniversary, the team’s attention to detail went above and beyond, creating a fabulous floral rose petal display for us as well as including some lovely extras such as complimentary peanuts, crisps, bottled water and two bottles of wine – all of which were really appreciated.

As standard, within the Executive rooms there are fluffy robes and slippers for use during your stay, a complimentary tea tray, Nespresso coffee machine, hair dryer, iron and a safe.

Now as if that is not enough to make sure that you have a memorable stay, why not head down to the onsite Exchange Bar & Restaurant for a few glasses of wine, some yummy food and the perfect place to sit, chat and enjoy the good vibes.

Dan, Gaskey and all the food & beverage are a dream team, real diamonds that make sure they always go the extra mile, so guests leave happy.

The Exchange Bar & Restaurant has an extensive drinks offering including plenty of gins, spirits, beers, lagers, Ipas, wines and of course cocktails.

The brand-new food menu with an ‘Around the World’ theme which works extremely well.  The salad starter along with an epic cheeseboard is an ideal way to get interactive and share with your plus one.

Mouth-watering mains included King Prawn Pad Thai, Cobb Salad, an Asian inspired super spicy Chicken Curry with rice, Poutine, Vegan burger with fries and many more.

Delicious Desserts included Pancake perfection with vanilla ice cream with lashings of chocolate sauce and the beautiful Berry Meringue was a showstopper packed with plenty of fresh berries and cream.  All washed down with a lovely vodka-based berry Martini, a Salted Caramel Expresso Martini, and a gorgeous Cappuccino coffee.

After a night of eating, drinking, plenty of laughter and a good nights sleep have some you time in the onsite leisure are which includes sauna, steam room and a fully equipped gym.

Built up an appetite, well the buffet breakfast is a must, as all guests can choose from a range of fresh continental offerings such as fresh fruit, pastries, cheese, muffins, yogurt, orange juice etc.  There is also an upgraded coffee machine so you can sip quality coffee and tea as you tuck into the hot breakfast goodies.

Visiting Manchester, well make sure you book yourself into the Novotel Manchester Centre, because you will not be disappointed.

The hotel has gorgeous Executive rooms, divine drinks, creative Cocktails, fabulous food and more importantly all the team are superstars and make you feel like the place is a home away from home

I love when a hotel has an amazing restaurant, so you don’t have to go far, especially in an unfamiliar place.
