The Portland Hotel in Manchester Blogger Review!

Hello Daydreamers!

I was super lucky and I won a competition on twitter. The prize was an overnight stay with breakfast included at The Portland Hotel in Manchester.
 My mum and I had not stayed at this hotel before but when we read that it was a 'Thistle' hotel, we were super excited because we have stayed at (and loved) quite a few Thistle hotels in the past.  

We caught the train into Manchester and as we were walking towards the hotel, in true British fashion it began top rain- lots, however this didn't phase us one bit because since the hotel is so well known, we were able to find it super fast. Upon arrival, we were able to swiftly check in and we were given the key to our room. I always think that's the best part of staying in a hotel; getting to see the room that you're staying in!

The room was lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and we were able to pop the kettle on and choose from a lovely selection of tea, coffee and biscuits.
(I'm sorry that these 2 images are a little blurred, they were my mums photos taken on her iPad) 

Even though there was a flat screen LCD television and free unlimited WiFi in the room, we decided to take some magazines so we could just chill out and read all the celebrity gossip and the Christmas gift guides! 

The next day at breakfast, there was a selection of both English and continental items. We had breakfast in our room because it sounded novel and we were also too lazy get ready to go downstairs early haha. 
I'm more of a continental kinda gal so I opted for a Danish pastry (which we were surprised to received 4 of) rice crispies and strawberry yoghurt. My Mum chose the full English breakfast with white toast and we also received a selection of jams, marmalade and honey.

 So all in all, we had a lovely stay at The Portland Hotel and we would recommend it to anybody who's looking for a warm, welcoming hotel located in the centre of Manchester. All the staff were super friendly and they really went above and beyond. 
The hotel is also in an ideal position to be staying in if you're visiting the Manchester Christmas Markets.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post lovelies : )
