The ibis Manchester Centre 96 Portland Street Hotel Review

The ibis Manchester Centre 96 Portland Street Hotel Review: August 2019

Rock up to Marvellous Manchester, for a chic city break with friends, family or a loved one, and stay in the ibis Manchester Centre 96 Portland Street Hotel.  Located near Manchester Piccadilly train station, the Arndale shopping centre you are right in the heart of all the exciting city action.

Recently refurbished, the hotel’s lovely lobby provides a contemporary space to kick back and chill or a relaxed place to get out the laptop and work your way to the top.  Love the Manchester Bee wallpaper too.

The moment you arrive, the whole vibe is friendly, fab and warm, even as you wait for the lift you get a big beautiful textual hug, “From the heart is personal, a genuine one-off”.

Roxy Ball Room Manchester Review: August 2018

Rock up to Roxy Ball Room Manchester, located on Deansgate, and prepare for a fab fun filled game playing experience.  Check in with the team, Molly, Ashley and Laura, a bunch of laid back, friendly guys and gals, who will make sure you have a shed load of fun.

Stripes or spots, either way prepare to go large, when you play pool on Roxys full size Sam K Tables.  Rent them by the half hour and pot your way to winning.

Relax and refuel Roxy style, opt for their platter and make way for a monster feast including classic pizza slices, Buffalo chicken wings, mac & cheese bites, onion rings, garlic ciabatta, and fully loaded fries. On our visit, we decided to replace the fully loaded fries with cracked pepper and sweet potato fries which was no problem and the team were happy to do so.  Wash this all down with a pint of beer or a berry mocktail.

Bring on the ball control and prepare to ping pong your way to victory on the Roxy full size competition tables.  Again rentable by the half hour.
