The Lowry Hotel, Manchester

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to stay overnight at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
The Lowry is Manchester's first 5* hotel, and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Blending modern and minimalistic style with luxury and warmth, the hotel is contemporary, stylish, and welcoming.

We stayed in a superior deluxe twin room with a view of the river, which was huge with a comfortable leather chaise longue near the window adding style to the room. The beds were large and comfortable, and there was contemporary artwork on the wall as well as a large warm bathroom filled with Aromatherapy Associates products (one of my personal favourites) and a tea tray with plenty of little extras.

After we'd settled in to our room we went to explore the rest of the hotel. Unforutunately the spa is currently undergoing a renovation so we couldn't see what that was like, but consoled ourselves by heading to the bar for a cocktail.
As anyone who reads this blog knows, cocktails are basically my life - so there was no way I was passing up the opportunity!
P.S. They were as good as I expected.

I slept wonderfully, in a quiet, comfortable and perfectly sized bed in a room that was just the right temperature for me. I never sleep too well in hotels because I like a really cold room and they never are, but regardless of the temperature, it was perfect.

Breakfast was a continental buffet and then a cooked selection. I was deliberating whether to have my usual eggs benedict for ages, but eventually settled on a full English. It was delicious.

Every aspect of our stay - from the friendly reception staff, to the luxurious room, the comfortable bed, powerful shower, fluffy robes and delicious food and drink was superb.
I had a bit of a crisis the following morning (nothing major) but the staff went above and beyond what is normally expected in a hotel stay, which was just amazing.
I'd love to stay again!

Have you ever stayed at The Lowry?
