A great location, wonderful atmosphere and a few indulgences.
Connected by the city’s free transport system, the hotel is an impressive Italian renaissance-style building designed by local architect Edward Salomons and originally built in 1872 for the Manchester Salford Trustees Bank.
King Street Townhouse is made for indulgence from the cosy and warm atmosphere to afternoon tea complete with delicate finger sandwiches, chocolate layer cake, crisp macron, homemade cakes and scones overflowing with clotted cream and preserves, all served on a three-tier stand. Although, guests can satisfy their love of gin and tonic with afternoon tea, I decided to go traditional and have a glass of champagne.
For a memorable way to relax overlooking the city, head to the 7th floor, relaxation area which includes an infinity pool.
King Street Townhouse, 10 Booth Street, Upper King Street, M2 4AW.
