Hotel And Theatre Stay

During the pandemic and lockdown the original trip had to be cancelled and I accepted a voucher. 18 months later we had our booking accepted and sorted very quickly and we had the same hotel and theatre booking as originally planned. Well done, everything went smoothly and we had an enjoyable weekend.

Why Book a Manchester Hotel?


Located in the North West of England, Manchester is the UK's sixth largest city and offers some of the country's best shopping opportunities. With large shopping centres such as The Trafford Centre and The Arndale Centre, luxury department stores Harvey Nichols and Selfridges and popular high street shops including Topshop, Monsoon and River Island, there is something to suit every taste. Once the shops close Manchester is just as busy with a vast array of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and live music venues. It's easy to see why Manchester is becoming one of the UK's most popular city break destinations.

Choosing your Manchester Hotel


With so many interesting areas to choose from it can be difficult deciding where in Manchester to stay. Booking a Manchester Piccadilly hotel will place you in the heart of Manchester's city centre, offering many restaurants, bars and nightclubs right on your doorstep. Deansgate is the longest road in the city centre and hotels in this area allow the perfect position from which to take advantage of Manchester's busy shopping scene. Of course, if you are a Manchester United fan you will want to stay in a hotel near Old Trafford, providing the perfect base to travel to and from the ground. Or take a look at our preferred partner, Thistle Hotel Manchester.
