Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Manchester

Staying in a chain hotel can be uninspiring, which is why so many people enjoying a weekend break or longer stay in Manchester choose one of the city's eclectic independent hotels. From traditional inns and romantic hotels to ultra-contemporary self-catering apartment hotels, the sheer range of independent hotels available in Manchester means there is something to appeal to all tastes and budgets.

Unique Style, Excellent Amenities at Manchester's Independent Hotels

From quirky, boho-chic hotels on Canal Street to boutique apartment hotels, each independent hotel in Manchester has something unique to offer visitors. But just because these hotels offer individually decorated rooms and bespoke furnishings doesn't mean they skimp on amenities. You'll find the majority offer free Wi-Fi, and with free parking also available at most hotels, you don't need to worry about finding a parking space or using public transport, unless you want to. One of the other benefits of independent hotels is their smaller size, which means a warm welcome and personalised service are practically guaranteed.

Art, Culture and Retail Therapy in Manchester

City centre hotels are within easy walking distance of most of Manchester's main attractions, and if its art and culture you're after, you will find plenty of museums and galleries to choose from. The Museum of Science and Industry is a popular choice with families, whilst the Manchester Museum on Oxford Road is home to a fossilised T-Rex skeleton that's always a hit with children of all ages. Whilst you're on Oxford Road, check out the Whitworth Art Gallery, which houses both modern and historic art. Then why not finish your day with a spot of shopping at the Intu Trafford Centre - or head for drinks at Cloud 23 on top of the Hilton at Deansgate, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the city.

Independent Hotels with Family-Friendly Amenities

Don't be put off staying in an independent hotel if you're travelling with younger children. Most hotels in Manchester are family-friendly and happy to provide complimentary infant beds or cots on request, whilst apartment hotels usually have laundry facilities, making life easier for those travelling with babies or young children.
