King Street Townhouse is located in an Italian Renaissance-style former bank dating from 1872, on a quiet side street within central Manchester’s historic Upper King Street Conservation Area. It is just a few minutes’ walk from major sights including Manchester Art Gallery, the Royal Exchange Theatre and the grand neo-Gothic John Rylands Library. Spinningfields, packed with high-end shops and restaurants, and the National Football Museum are within a 10-minute walk.
The hotel is crowned by a 7th-floor spa area with a steam room, treatment space and a compact infinity pool overlooking Manchester Town Hall’s Victorian splendour. Public spaces include a cosy, vintage-feel lounge for afternoon tea, a homely mezzanine and a trendy bar with rustic wood furnishings, parquet floors and a covered terrace offering city views. There’s also an on-site gym and a smart brasserie featuring high ceilings, leather banquettes and wood-panelled walls inset with shabby-chic mirrors.
The individually decorated guestrooms feature soft neutral tones, rich fabrics and refined wood furnishings. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, TVs, air conditioning and mini bars, plus coffee machines and bathrooms with walk-in showers and designer toiletries. Higher-category rooms add freestanding tubs, while suites come with separate lounge areas and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Town Hall.
