bedrooms, two armchairs large floor to ceiling window A magnificent terracotta Grade II listed building with a history dating back to 1890, the grand clock tower at the centre of its striking Victorian architecture is an unmistakable landmark on Manchester's skyline.

All 270 loft-style bedrooms, including 11 suites, were designed to make the most of the stunning, double and triple-height ceilings. Other original period features including glazed brick, tile, faience, stained glass and carved wooden staircases, are combined with contemporary fittings and interiors. Guest rooms offer an homage to Manchester's iconic music scene, with vinyl records of the city's most iconic bands – from the Stone Roses and Oasis to Elbow and Take That – available to play on record players in each room. Each room borrows design inspiration from the spirited and renowned Manchester party and music scene, with vibrant, bespoke textiles designed by Timorous Beasties, which incorporate the iconic Manchester worker bee and bold contemporary graphic prints adorning the walls. Complimentary tuck boxes of treats in all rooms, as well as fresh milk and mineral water in the fridge enrich the in-room experience and provides the perfect environment for honeymoons with plenty to do in the City right on your doorstep.
