When you’re relocating to Manchester or Cheshire it’s a great idea to set aside a day or two to explore the highlights of the area. There’s so much to see and do, so we’ll devise a bespoke tour based on your brief. You can expect a packed but pleasurable experience, so you might need a chic retreat for the evening.
Here are some of our favourite Manchester and Cheshire hotels:
The Charles Forte suite at The Lowry – accurately described on the Rocco Forte website as the last word in elegance and the city’s finest suite. Luxuriously fitted out in home-from-home style, the suite comes complete with a baby grand piano in the dining area. If you’re tired following a day exploring the best that Manchester has to offer, we can arrange for a private chef to rustle up a fine dining experience in your suite. The next morning, call on the bath butler to draw a decadent bath, choosing from a menu of bath oils.
For a more boutique Manchester city centre hotel, try the Great John Street hotel, where you can enjoy a cocktail on the roof garden playground or a light supper at the oyster bar.
Part of the Eclectic Hotels group, Great John Street serves up Northern style at its best. Its sister hotel, Didsbury House, offers an eclectic vibe and is the perfect South Manchester base from which to explore the region. With sweeping staircases, stained glass windows, in-bedroom twin bath tubs and relaxed lounge areas, it’s sure to inspire your house hunt.
For those who prefer utter privacy, we’d recommend hiring out hidden gem, 129 Didsbury, a private, architect designed 2 bedroom home, beautifully fitted out with antiques and one off pieces of artwork.
On the doorstep of lively West Didsbury, this small but perfectly formed house provides perfect access to the independent eateries, bijou bars and boutiques of the area. A great way of immersing yourself in the local area to see if the lifestyle’s the right fit for you.
If you’re considering moving to the Cheshire countryside, and would like to indulge in a round of golf during down time on your reconnaissance tour, the Mere resort in leafy Knutsford would make a good base for your relocation search.
The relaxing spa is also a welcome retreat at the end of a busy day of being shown the beautiful countryside, the most prestigious streets in the area and sampling Fairmont Spencer’s picks of local fine dining.These are just a taste of the great hotels on offer in Manchester and Cheshire, so simply let us know your preferences and we’ll suggest the right place to lay your head for the night on your reconnaissance trip and reserve everything on your behalf.
