The Ainscow Hotel & Spa occupies the old Brown Brothers building, a former brewery on the border of Salford and Manchester. The building underwent a £6 million refurbishment in 2014 and is now a boutique bolthole with a blend of modern design and original features, including steel beams and exposed brickwork.

Located in Salford's historic Chapel Street area, this chic hotel is around 10 minutes' walk from Manchester Opera House, the People's History Museum and the shops and restaurants of Manchester's Spinningfields district.

Manchester Arena, Manchester Art Gallery, Bridgewater Hall, the Royal Exchange Theatre and the shops of the Arndale Centre are around 15 minutes' walk. Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium is two miles away.

The property has a dry spa offering a range of pampering treatments including facials, massages and manicures (extra charges apply, there are no wet spa facilities). Evening meals may be served in the hotel's stylish restaurant or in the relaxed Lounge Bar.

Enjoyed Most: large comfortable room.
Other Comments: Hotel and car park was difficult to find by car-especially in the dark. The building does not stand out due to its structure and history and the sign on the building is small and not illuminated. the background music and dinner was too loud and not to our taste- using personal phone/idock system. Asked one waitress to turn it down which she did and the other turned back up!
