Midland Hotel Manchester
This imposing red-brick and granite edifice is a Grade II listed building, taking up a whole block of Manchester’s city centre. The Midland Railway Company opened the hotel in 1903 for passengers using the old Central Railway terminal.
Nowadays it faces the Manchester Central Convention Centre, making it a popular conference and wedding venue, so aim for a room on one of the higher floors if you can. A £15 million refurbishment has brushed up all 312 rooms and 14 suites in recent years. The best are large and airy with high-ceilings.
Expect lavish breakfasts and good quality food, especially in flagship restaurant the French by Simon Rogan, with its swish Octagon lounge and gilded rococo décor, which makes it a stylish venue attracting the Beckhams and other celebrities.
Location: 200m from Oxford Road Station, 800m from Piccadilly Station and just 50 metres to St Peter’s Square tram stop.
Price: Doubles from £85.
