Best Boutique Hotels in Manchester

When can I find the best deals on Manchester Boutique Hotels?

In a city that's got a reputation for doing things differently, it shouldn't be hard to find Manchester boutique hotels to suit your style. Whether that's a fusion of industrial-chic architecture and swish modern design features, or a 5-star bout of boutique luxury that packs in Warhol-esque artworks and Danish furnishings, this quirky metropolis of the North will have you covered. You'll probably have to steer clear of Christmas, New Year and the very middle of summer if you want to bag the best deals. Coming in months like March, October and November should be the cheapest of all.

Top Boutique Hotels in Manchester

One part vintage railroad hotel, one part uber-luxurious 5-star pad, one part off-beat art emporium where zebra carpets and pineapple bookstands pop up on the lacquered furniture, the Hotel Gotham is surely up there with the best Manchester boutique hotels. One star less but still bursting with character, the ABode Manchester has plush leather reading chairs and vintage block-wood flooring in its suites. Then there's the High Street Townhouse – a clutch of 19 apartments with bespoke light fittings, exposed-brick walls and stripped-down hipster lounges in the heart of the Northern Quarter.

Where are the best areas for Boutique Hotels in Manchester?

First up: The Northern Quarter. Dingy beer bars meet neon-lit pool halls, fair-trade cafes fizz with life and travel in Manchester takes a turn for the more idiosyncratic – all in this small conglomeration of half-pedestrianised streets at the north end of the city. Other places lie in the Central Retail District, where the boutique stays swap out wacky antiques for mod cons and thought-provoking artwork. And then there are the digs along Canal Street. Those channel Victorian-kooky opulence with their flamboyant bedspreads and filigreed walls.

What are Boutique Hotels like in Manchester?

Most Manchester boutique hotels sit in the heart of the city. They pepper side streets and canal-side roads that have good walking access to the metro stops or main walking thoroughfares. Others line the big walking boulevards, flaunting their opulent exteriors of old sandstone architecture and shimmering modern glass for all to see. They often come with fewer rooms than a conventional hotel, which works to crank up the unique charm of each individual suite – expect screwball antiques and artworks dotting the tables and walls, elaborate four-poster beds, intriguing lighting setups and more.

How much do Boutique Hotels typically cost in Manchester?

Boutique hotels in Manchester certainly aren't the cheapest in the city. But if those interesting design features and curious twists in the rooms have tickled your fancy, you can expect to fork out between £80 and £100 for a stay in the happening Northern Quarter. If you'd prefer the high luxury additions of the 5-star boutiques elsewhere in the town, that price tag will crank up to an average of about £195 a night for the simplest rooms. Down on Canal Street south of Chinatown, the rates tend to level out at around £100 and £110 per nightly stay.
