If I was asked to recommend a hotel in Manchester, it would be the Abel Heywood without a second thought. The hotel prides itself on being a boutique which is ‘out of the ordinary’ and sits above the pub, which is a cosy twist between modern and heritage with the consistent theme running throughout and into the beautiful bedrooms above.

The hotel has 15 rooms with a range of twin bedrooms, doubles and suites in prices between £75-£200 dependant on the days, times of year and room type that you choose. My bedroom was one of the suites, which was luxury and I was shocked upon finding out the low prices. The room featured a huge bed, sofa area and all the usual hotel things such as tea and coffee. It was a really homely space which eased all of my nerves upon staying in a room alone – the bed was really comfortable and having so much space to myself was heavenly!

The bathroom was also lovely and modern with a lovely shower. The products were all gorgeous smelling and full sized which meant I wasn’t limited to a pea sized amount of shampoo for my long hair. Admittedly, the only downfall to the entire room was the view of a carpark but it was overlooked due to the beauty of the room and how silent it was at night while I was trying to sleep! 

For the pub, I didn’t really venture downstairs except for breakfast which was amazing. I chose to have smoked salmon and avocado on toast which was a generous portion for a reasonable price. The menu is great and features a wide range of items with the obvious choices for drinks, too. Room service is available at a small service charge.

If you’re looking for a beautiful hotel to stay in on a visit to Manchester, Abel Heywood is a good option and I’m sure you will love it as much as I did. All of the staff members were lovely and welcoming, so thank you very much for such an enjoyable stay.
