Beat the January blues in Manchester!

As 2023 begins, the January blues are something all of us are familiar with. From watching your favourite Christmas movies all day and indulging in your favourite foods, to cold winter weather and heading back to work; everyone is bound to feel a little low.  

However, it doesn’t have to be this way. This is your sign to book that special winter city break with a loved one and beat the post-Christmas blues. 

Shopping in the city   

How about a girl’s shopping trip in the city? Located in the heart of Manchester, our hotel is just a two-minute walk away from the Arndale Centre and Selfridges where you can find all your favourite stores and brands. However, that’s not all. If you’re looking for something a little quirkier, head down to the Northern Quarter for a range of independent stores and boutique shops. 


Media City UK 

Looking for something a little different to do? Victoria tram stop is less than a one-minute walk away from our hotel, where you can hop on and travel effortlessly all around Greater Manchester. One tourist favourite is Media City UK. Located on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, here you’ll find the quieter side of the city.  

From art exhibitions, music events and the theatre, to shopping and dining there is something for everyone. Home to the ITV and BBC studios, Media City is full of creativity.

Dining in Mamucium 

No matter what time of year it is, there’s nothing better than dinner in the city. If you’re looking for a delicious rib-eye steak to enjoy or something a little smaller to share, we’ve got you covered. Come and join us at our stunning restaurant Mamucium, where throughout January we will be offering a three-course meal and a bottle of wine for just £20 per person. That’s not all, with Veganuary coming up, our restaurant is also offering the same deal with our vegan menu, so there’s something for everyone!

There’s always time for a cuppa 

With the cold weather still around, there’s no better place than in a cosy café with a hot cup of coffee. And back, just in time after a long-awaited glow-up, our Todd Street Café has returned for all the coffee (and tea) lovers out there. Open from 7 am, it’s the perfect opportunity to book yourself the perfect city getaway and then enjoy breakfast from the comfort of our café.
