p After spending two long decades derelict without anybody to love it
the Ainscow Hotel & Spa was born, from what was originally a landmark building from 1878. And it was SO worth the wait. Merging traditional with contemporary, and oozing great British style - this hotel on the edge of Manchester city centre is the bee s knees. /p
p All 62 rooms have been smothered with TLC, and offer a luxurious boutique space in architectural heaven. Whatever level of room you opt for, their style game is strong. There s also complimentary Wi-fi so you can show off your room to your friends /p
p The hotel has a dry spa, where you can treat yourself to a treatment or if your visit is to add a bit of social spice, there s a fabulous party space and rooftop terrace overlooking the Manchester skyline. /p
p Always seasonal and always local, the hotel s Lynwood Restaurant has some delectable dishes to get stuck into. Presentation and flavour is what it s all about here, and you can enjoy the seriously good grub in the same flawless setting that runs through the rest of the hotel. /p
p Just a stone s throw away from Manchester city centre which is jam-packed with bars, restaurants, shops, theatres, museums and much more the Ainscow has chosen its spot well. You re 5 minutes from Salford Central train station, or there s a car park if you ve travelled in the automobile. /p
p In a nutshell: Beautifully boutique /p
