Hotels in Manchester

Heading north to Manchester? In addition to flights to Manchester, let Skyscanner find you great deals on Manchester hotels.

Once a gritty northern city with an industrial heart; Manchester has evolved into a thriving and vibrant cultural centre. Famed for its music and world-renowned football clubs, Manchester’s diversity could give London a run for its money.

If you want to sleep where Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra laid their heads then head for the glorious Midland Hotel. Opened in 1903, it’s the oldest hotel in the city. Hotels in Manchester are all accessible by either tram or on foot. Even in the centre of the city, Travelodges and Premier Inns offer very reasonable accommodation alongside the likes of Radisson Blu and the Midland.  Head a little further east and you will find B&B’s, apartments and budget guesthouses galore, close to the train station and with easy access to the city via tram.

The majestic Imperial Chinese Archway in Manchester's Chinatown is a sign of the city’s cosmopolitan and diverse nature; from the fine dining of Didsbury, to the Curry Mile – a famed 800m long stretch of Indian restaurants. Manchester boasts beautiful historic sites like 16th century medieval walls, the imposing Manchester Cathedral and the neo-Gothic Town Hall. These sit alongside daringly modern structures like the Imperial War Museum which won awards for its design. Those with a love of the arts will find a host of galleries and museums to browse, while Old Trafford draws the sporting crowds to its hallowed turf.

If there’s one thing Manchester knows how to do, its shopping. From Louis Vuitton to Deansgate and the Trafford Centre, there is a credit-card-melting array of places to part with your money. As night falls, take in the wonderfully eclectic Manchester music scene from cosy, quirky venues around the city playing anything from rock and indie to electro and punk

Did you know?                         

Want an eerie way to spend an evening? Centuries of industry left a legacy of underground sewers and tunnels beneath Manchester’s streets. Known as the Victorian Arches and once a closely guarded secret, they are now open to the public…spooky.

For adventures above ground, head to bar Cloud 23. Twenty three floors up, surrounded by glass windows and floors, lies an absolutely unforgettable view of the city and beyond.

These Mancunians must be a clever bunch. Manchester University has produced no less than twenty two Nobel Prize winners!
