MANCHESTER is my old home city.
Any opportunity I get to pay it a visit, well let’s just say, if I can be there, I am there!
So imagine my absolute, dance-around-a-room delight, when the good people at Spa Breaks and The Midland Hotel, invited me and a plus one (my big sister) to stay with them for an overnight stay and experience everything they have to offer, including the hotel’s gorgeous (and pretty swanky) new spa.
Just thinking of it now, is making me feel all lovely and relaxed. But enough of that, let’s get down to business and tell you how we got on.
(And why you really, really need to visit.)
The Midland Hotel for those of you who don’t know is one of the oldest and most famous hotels in Manchester.
Think grand Edwardian architecture, 4* luxury mixed with 1920s style and charm and a big ol’ dollop of Northern friendliness thrown in for good measure.
It is spectacular. Stunning. A truly special place to stay.
And has quite possibly the best beds in the world. I so did not want to get out of this comfy bad boy when I stayed. And who could blame me?
The room we stayed in was seriously lovely with super high ceilings, plenty of space and even a comfy sofa to crash out on as my sister and I, put the world to rights.
