The Lowry is under new management and I'm over the moon. Apart from our perfect wedding reception at this hotel a few years ago our latest return to the venue has been the best ever. There appears to be a calm efficiency and a lighter touch to providing top notch service without the condescending snootiness we've experienced on previous visits. The Lowry is on the boundary of Manchester and Salford, named after one of the region's humblest characters and it's the same unpretentious charm that will be a hit with its guests.
This lovely old building has been given a new lease of life as a wonderful hotel. One hesitates to use the term "charming" for a city hotel but that is what this building is. The old internal cast iron columns have been retained and the floors opened up to provide an airy atrium like space to welcome guests as they walk in. The brickwork is exposed and the industrial history is ever present as you move around the hotel. The staff are attentive and helpful and willing to go the extra Mile for the guests.
This was an unexpectedly delightful stay,since I had a flight to catch the next morning. The room was comfortable, even luxurious, and had everything I needed. It was very quiet despite being only a short distance from the airport. Breakfast had an extensive choice of well cooked food as well as a cold buffet choice. I really enjoyed it! The airport shuttle from the hotel picked me up from the station when I arrived and dropped me at the airport departures area when I left. It was all extremely convenient and a boon for a solo traveller.All in all this experience set me off on my journey in a relaxed manner and made a great start to my holiday.
Very good staff, very helpfull, let us put bags in store whilst we visseted local family, then,. in the morning, we hadn't booked Breakfast, but we had a coffee & Tea & Toast @ a very reasonable price, Then, a free mini bus to our Terminal
there was tea & coffee in the room the staff where great...Well done Hilton..
Jurys Inn was such a great stay! Was there for two nights and its location is so central in Manchester to the things we had planned. The Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. The room itself large and clean. We had to switch rooms due to a broken toilet but they switched us quickly with no trouble and were extremely accommodating and kind. Would absolutely stay here again. If you're a fan of Factory Records/Hacienda, you wont find a better hotel for this fact alone. Its across the canal from the old Hacienda (now apt's) but the backside has some great nods to Factory Records that are cool to see from across the little canal.
Thanks Jurys Inn for a great stay!
Close to everything, especially when travelling by train.
Considering it's a warehouse conversion, its a beautiful hotel with excellent amenities.
Loved the fact I received a giant sized cookie on checking-in and that there was a box of yummy chocolates on my bed.
