The Midland Manchester unveiled *

Famous as the place that Rolls met Royce The Midland Hotel Manchester, now Israeli Leonardo-owned, has reopened its doors following a £14m transformation.

Whilst the complete hotel has benefited from the makeover perhaps the most stunning presence is the entrance and main foyer, which now features a brand new, split-level bar built on a raised platform in the heart of the hotel’s lobby, providing a spectacular space for both guests and non-guests to enjoy.

In addition to the public areas, the hotel’s 312 bedrooms have undergone impressive refurbishments. Featuring a restful, neutral colour palette adorned with luxurious soft padded armchairs, plump cushions and glowing lamps; the new rooms offer guests ultimate comfort and style.

On the food and beverage side the hotel is now home to two new venues.

Mount Street, is a modern British style brasserie, which combines Northern hospitality with an all-day menu offering. Guests can also visit The Midland’s on-site restaurant, The Midland Champagne Lounge, where they will find an all-day menu serving classic dishes with a modern twist.

Jason Carruthers, Managing Director of Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland, comments: “We are thrilled to have completed The Midland’s extraordinary transformation and are all the more excited to reveal it to guests after a long lockdown period. The hotel has hosted gatherings and celebrations since 1903 and we are so pleased to welcome guests back once more to enjoy a new chapter in the life of this iconic building.”

Built as a railway hotel, and part of the British Transport Hotels group sold at the behest of government.
