The Lowry Hotel, Manchester

Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“Visiting rock stars and luxury hunters tend to favour this modern, five-star hotel (not to be confused with the arts centre in Salford Quays), where the fabulous bedrooms have enormous beds and ergonomically designed furniture.”

Telegraph review:

“Like a true Mancunian, this five-star hotel is showy without being pretentious and fiercely proud of its roots. Huge stylish rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and attentive service keep guests coming back for more, while art exhibitions, a spa and people-watching opportunities make it an enjoyable place to linger.”

All you need to know

The Lowry Hotel is a luxurious and modern hotel situated on the banks of the River Irwell. This high-rise building is a key component of Manchester’s skyline, and its all-glass appearance makes it impossible to miss. With an ultra-chic foyer, complete with massive ceilings, tons of space, contemporary lighting, and clean lines, this space encapsulates the atmosphere of the entire hotel.

Choose from five different spacious floor plans: deluxe king double, superior king double, a suite with a river view, executive king, or a junior suite. You will have floor-to-ceiling windows, comfortable beds, iPod docks, plush furniture, and plenty of space no matter which room you choose. The private bathrooms feel extra luxurious with marble floors and walls, glass standing showers, and soft bathrobes.

Relax for a day at the hotel spa, which has five treatment rooms, including a relaxation room, a couples room, a sauna, a gym, and a hair salon. Dine at the onsite River Restaurant, serving a variety of chicken, fish, and beef. Next to the restaurant, you’ll find a lovely cocktail bar boasting great drinks and live music. Along the side of the Chapel Wharf building, step out onto the large terrace that showcases dazzling city views.

The People’s History Museum and the Manchester Cathedral are only a five-minute walk from this hotel, making this an extremely convenient location in Manchester.

Everything was perfect honestly, tried booking for December already to come for the holiday with kids.. but sadly the hotel was fully booked on the website. Staff were cautious, House keeping was prompt.

The breakfast session could have more variety options.

6 March 2024

Professional staff, friendly guests, excellent location, delicious food and reasonably priced.

Property was lovely, modern,well maintained. Interior decor was beautiful which is something I usually enjoy. The staff were friendly and weren’t over bearing.

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like.

Underrated hotel

Amazing food


4 March 2024

Over rated not quite 5 star standard

Very clean, modern hotel.

Buffet breakfasts are never warm, and I was expecting a fresh cooked breakfast to order. Yes there was a menu with items to order but not a full English. We chose this hotel for its location on the riverside, but unfortunately the area is very run down with derelict buildings opposite.

The whole experience is amazing. The bed was huge and so comfortable. Loved the view of the water. The Karl lagerfield toiletries was a nice touch. Breakfast was lovely , nice buffet selection.

Stunning room. Great area. Very safe

The hotel and staff were all faultless. However, the bar was not brilliant. Setting aside our server’s first day (she was very good!), the child’s mocktail ordered was undrinkable (far too much syrup). Although offered a replacement, drinks were very slow to arrive in a not very busy bar, we had already paid and had to be elsewhere for dinner so declined.

Absence of a Nespresso/coffee machine. I have travelled extensively and was surprised by this basic facility in an otherwise very good hotel.


26 February 2024

Very easy going, comfortable, quiet, clean and of a great standard.

The hotel was very clean, the location was very good and the parking facilities were great. The staff were very attentive and had a smile on their faces, which made the whole place seem like a lovely place to even work as well as stay.



25 February 2024

Very good

The reception staff was very welcoming and helpful, great customer service. We had a wonderful stay, thank you very much Will book again when visiting Manchester

All was excellent apart from coffee at breakfast - what was that????? Come on - a 5-star hotel sure can afford a good quality coffee machine! So your guests can enjoy a decent morning beverage. Please please improve on this


25 February 2024

Perfectly located for the city


16 February 2024

Very nice , but noisy and although paid for parking the carpark was full

It’s spacious, clean and friendly ,

There was a business function on which I accept as part of a hotels criteria but it was so noisy for hotel guests, even reception staff were apologetic as you could hardly hear , so in the evening it was impossible to stay and have a quiet drink therefore we had to go out


15 February 2024

Lovely hotel for couples, would recommend and would go again

Helpful staff even when we came across problems checking in, made up for mistakes that weren’t theirs so that was nice.
