Price Drop
Now from $172 per night
This remarkable hotel is housed in the former Manchester Stock Exchange – a grand building of columns and carved stone between Market and King Street. It’s the kind of place where a uniformed doorman greets you and visitors pop in just for afternoon tea in the lounge. The rooms are just as opulent as the exterior: marble bathrooms with freestanding baths; floor-to-ceiling windows swathed with velvet curtains. Dining comes courtesy of celebrity chef Tom Kerridge in the Bull & Bear restaurant, where mashed potato is flavoured with truffle and the rump steak is locally sourced.
