Offering a winning combination of luxury, comfort and style, King Street Townhouse is a 40-room boutique retreat in Manchester's city centre. Relaxation is key here, whether you're wallowing in its infinity spa-pool which overlooks the Town Hall's clock tower, soaking in a freestanding tub in your chic bedroom, or indulging in afternoon tea in the lounge. While children are welcome, the hotel feels like a grown-up hideaway, with tasteful décor sourced by former owner Sally O'Loughlin, and plenty of places to people-watch or read a book. Bedrooms are all unique but share the same thoughtful luxuries, such as extremely comfortable beds, ESPA toiletries and Nespresso machines.



Situated in the heart of the city, the hotel is a ten-minute walk from many of Manchester's key cultural attractions, bars and restaurants.

Manchester's trendy Northern Quarter, with its bars and restaurants, is within a 10-minute walk.
By car: around 1 hour 20 minutes from Leeds, 2 hours from Birmingham and 4 hours 15 minutes from London. There is some free parking available on nearby streets. The hotel offers a discount for Q Park Piazza car park, a five-minute walk away.
By train: There are regular trains to Manchester Piccadilly from Birmingham New Street (1 hour 30 minutes) and London Euston (2 hours 10 minutes) as well as most other major cities. Manchester Piccadilly station is a 10-minute taxi or 15-minute walk from the hotel.

Style & Character

Couples will love cosying up in a booth in the hotel's restaurant and wallowing in the infinity spa pool together. The staggering attention to detail, from books displayed on shelves and bold wallpaper to crockery makes this a memorable place to stay.

Service & Facilities

The luxurious 20-seat cinema in the vaulted cellar hosts ticketed screenings on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as some free screenings for hotel guests during the week. Despite generally high room rates, breakfast isn't included as standard.

Two suites have floor-to-ceiling windows looking at the Town Hall. Squeezed between these is an entry-level Snug with the same view for a snip of the price.​ The décor in the bathrooms is as thoughtful as that in the rooms themselves, with King Street Townhouse branded taps and tasteful tiles.
