TAFSAFHEF from Lincs had this to say about our fabulous city centre hotel in Manchester!
We had a great time.
On entering (by double doors) we were pleasantly surprised by the lay out. The living area had 2 sofas and 2 chairs and a large flat screen TV on the wall.The kitchen was also part of this area with adequate facilities.
The bathroom led off on one side with a double ended jacuzzi bath with TV inset in the wall. Great rain head power shower and lots of white fluffy towels and toiletries.
There was a spiral staircase that led up to a mezzanine area with 2 single beds and another TV!
The main bedroom also led off from the living area (my only complaint would be that this was also open plan so no door separating the bedroom)
The bed was a large kingsize – with a modern 4 poster surrounding it and there was also a small sofa bed next to it.
Once again another TV an ipod dock and a computer.
There was also a separate toilet and wash basin.
The sky lights had remote controlled blinds next to the bed and in the living area.
Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again.
John Rylands Library – A gothic sandstone building on Deansgate recently juxtaposed with a clever modern visitor centre. This fabulous legacy of Cottonopolis was commissioned by Cuban-born Enriqueta Rylands in memory of her philanthropist textile manufacturer husband. There’s more about Manchester’s first multi-millionaire and some fascinating changing exhibitions in the cathedral-like public reading rooms.
Royal Northern College of Music – The only UK conservatoire to be a centre for excellence in teaching and learning, but you can still hear the talented students play for free! Orchestral performances take place in the late-60s concert hall, while the RNCM’s best-kept secret is their Wednesday-lunchtime recitals by soloists and smaller ensembles in the calming and charming setting of St Ann’s Church.
Heaton Park – Manchester’s biggest green space, with lovely views both back over town and out to the Pennines. There’s plenty to do whatever your age: a well-equipped children’s playground; rowing boats, woodland walks and cycle paths; even a grand 18th-century mansion and farm. It’s also home to beekeepers, astronomers, trolley-bus enthusiasts and the Commonwealth Bowling Club.
City Airport – Formerly known as Barton Aerodrome, this was the UK’s first purpose-built municipal airport and it’s still in action today. Sit in the beer garden and watch small planes bump excitedly along the grassy runway as they take off and land, and climb up the Art Deco control tower that dates from 1933.
Whitworth Art Gallery – There’s always something worth seeing at this gallery, part of Manchester University; not least the soon-to-be developed building and its parkside location. Recent highlights have been the Subversive Spaces surrealism show, the American Scene prints exhibition and Walls Are Talking, and the varied event programme includes related talks held in the “secret” lecture theatre.*List courtesy of Visit Manchester

What do we hear from our spectacular combination of serviced apartments and boutique hotels in Leeds? Westminster Abbey might be a few hundred miles south, but wedding bells are ringing in Yorkshire.
Likewise, our high-specification accommodation in central Manchester is alive with talk of Friday April 29th. Prince William and Kate Middleton are to marry in the most prestigious venue England has to offer, while up and down the country people will be getting in on the act, and celebrating in style.
As you can imagine, London will be bursting to the brim with eager spectators, clambering for a peek at the beautiful bride. But fear not, a trip to the capital isn’t the only way to make sure you feel part of the event. Many a council plans to mark the occasion, and there will no doubt be plenty going on in most towns.
It’s also the perfect time of year for a short break in a British city. The nights will be lighter, temperatures milder, and you’ll still have enough time to save for that summer holiday. So, if up North East or North West when the big day finally arrives, here are our top tips for ‘joining in’, in your own special way…
Indulge in fantasy (just don’t get too involved)
Caroline Castigliano is amongst the UK’s most acclaimed wedding dress-makers. Do some window-shopping, or dare to step inside the Headrow boutique, then resume your Leeds retail therapy elsewhere.
Remember the details
Delicacies are essential, real wedding or not. Slattery’s in Prestwich is Manchester’s chocolate heaven. Hark as complicated cakes are painstakingly crafted, before filling your boots in the tearoom upstairs.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Dazzle, the UK’s leading jewellery exhibition and fare, just left Manchester. But head across town to the Northern Quarter’s Craft Centre for perfect rings, and five minutes with the designer.
Tea at the Palace
Temple Newsam House is truly unique. Comprising a stately home widely known as the ‘Hampton Court of the north’, gardens, grounds and a rare breed farm, there’s no finer place to be in Leeds at 3pm.
A blue-blooded pursuit
Hunting isn’t a city activity. But travel 20 minutes from Manchester city centre to aim over 400 acres of beautiful woodland at Manchester Clay Shooting Club in Worsley, before retiring to the drawing room.
