This is a stunning building. The Tempus Bar and restaurant serves coffees and spirits, bar snacks and meals. The setting is absolutely amazing and almost worth the £3.95 for a coffee!
Service is excellent and the staff are attentive without getting “in-your-face”.
The Hotel itself has the most amazing foyer I have ever seen; like a major 19th Century Institution. On coming through the automatic doors, one can only just see the reception desk across a vast circular space, which also seems to ascend to the heavens.
After a recent refurbishment, the hotel is now extremely modern, while retaining all the wonderfully decorative windows, columns and trappings from the 1890’s when it was first built, as the Refuge Assurance Building. It has also increased in capacity to 275 rooms.
We were there as part of a course in the conference suites. These are a strange mixture of ancient and modern, but quite suitable for the purpose. I can recommend the courses put on by Chocolate 7 especially.
A 4 star hotel of the highest class. One believes he is in a castle. A beautiful entrance. Magnificent facility. The way to the room is endless. The hotel has many aisles and everything in nice British style. The rooms are beautiful and there is free tea in different varieties on the desk along with a kettle. The bathroom is luxurious. Like everything in this hotel. The breakfast provides something for every nationality. It tastes very good. A rather large room but stylish. This hotel would deserve 5 stars, A+.

I love this place. Its a very historical and atmospheric hotel. did you know there are three floors below the main reception area, and one of them used to be a ballroom where the locals used to hide during the blitz? the hotel is split in half with regards to decor, the new modern habitat type decor and the early 90’s type. all rooms have their own character and the rooms located central of the building have little courtyards. you can easily get lost in here and if you wander off the main track, you find yourself in a little nook that can bring on a flashback of how the hotel looked in the day and maybe even a tingle down the spine..the views from the third floor near the tower are wonderful. breakfasts are lovely and a very warm welcome always.
I’ve stayed here before, and last time I had a fab room on the front. This time I was on the side, next to the lift (which had me dreaming I was in a lift with Take That during the night, nice) and didn’t have an on/off switch for the light, you just had to remove the key card from it’s slot. Ver odd.
The food was fab though, and I had a very nice non alcoholic cocktail (I’m off beer for November, no reason, just cos I can) and a fruit based breakfast.
The hotel as before is architecturally stunning. It’s the old Refuge Assurance building. Vey pretty!
This is a old hotel that have had a refurb recently with a red brick tradional facade and a great place to have a cocktails in the stylish bar before a night on the tiles in Manchester. As for tiles . the have a lovely selection of old tiles at the entrance to the hotel. Its good to see some places keep the traditional features .
