The Midland Hotel

Susie Stubbs

The Grade II-listed Midland Hotel is one of the most famous hotels in Manchester, originally constructed to serve Manchester Central, the railway station behind that is now a convention centre. Built in 1903 at the then-staggering figure of £1m, its terracotta and polished granite exterior hints at the calibre of celebrities and VIPs who have stayed within. It was where Charles Stewart Rolls met Frederick Henry Royce, where the Beatles were once refused entry (for which surely the Midland gets bonus points) and where the Queen Mother once took supper.

The Midland was brought up to date with a £12m renovation in 2004; today it has 312 rooms, 14 suites and two restaurants, the double AA rosette French Restaurant, Mr Cooper’s Restaurant and Bar plus the Tea Lounge known for its rather luxurious afternoon teas.

at The French

The French is one of Manchester’s most highly regarded restaurants. Head chef Adam Reid has a real grasp on what makes Manchester tick. A less fussy, more relaxed, and, at times, gloriously silly restaurant.
