Customer Reviews of The Portland by Thistle

Property Description

As the unofficial ‘Capital of the North’, Manchester is rated as Britain’s best place to do business. And we make it easy, especially as one of the main reasons people come to The Portland is for our conference facilities. Opposite Piccadilly Gardens, we’re just five minutes’ walk from its other great attraction, the Arndale Centre. Other Manchester icons including the Trafford Centre, the Lowry and Old Trafford are all within easy reach. And if you want to unwind after a busy day, our Just Gym has all the comforts and facilities you could wish for.
