The Lowry Hotel Review

The Lowry Hotel

This week, I stayed at the award winning five star, The Lowry Hotel, in the city of Manchester.

Overlooking Trinity Bridge on the River Irwell, the glass-fronted luxury hotel is luxurious and chic, and perfectly located right within easy reach of Manchester’s city centre.

From the outside, the building is striking and dominates the skyline with its curved, glass-fronted façade. Inside at the Lowry Hotel, the huge rooms have modern furnishings to match the architecture.  

 Views from my riverside room

I stayed on the fifth floor in a spacious superior deluxe king room with stunning views overlooking the river.  I loved the stylish but understated contemporary décor: a combination of neutral tones, dark wood and sleek furnishings like the very comfortable chic orange chaise and contemporary art work. The room was both clean and comfortable and had a large walk-in wardrobe, a satellite TV, and beautiful floor to ceiling window with spectacular city views. There was free wifi, a minibar, safe, tea and coffee making facilities as well as a useful iron and ironing board too.  The bathroom is equally large and features a marble bath, large shower and bathrobes are also provided.

If you’re feeling hungry then I suggest you head to the stunning riverside restaurant, The River Bar and Grill that serves guests a menu devised around the Josper grill. If you are not familiar with this type of grill, the Josper cooks food at 400°C behind a closed door to lock in ingredients’ natural flavours, delicious! They had a good range of food to choose from on the menu and a good choice of drinks too.  Guests can take in the stunning the views across the city from the Manchester’s longest bar, a large terrace that arcs around the side of the building and choose from one of the many cocktails on the menu.

There is also an in room dining option available 24 hours, for those who missed the dining menu that ends at 10pm. I arrived late to the hotel so I opted for in-room dining and had a classic: fish and chips and mushy peas and onion rings which was delicious.

Fabulous room service available

There is a varied breakfast menu too, choose from corn flakes, fruit or yogurt options to waffles or pancakes with coffee, tea or hot chocolate for drinks. I had the pancakes, bacon and syrup with hot chocolate, all very tasty!
Guests also have the option for in room dining for breakfast too

If you wish to de-stress during your stay at the Lowry then visit the impressive sauna and spa that offers a range of relaxing Elemis treatments for guests to enjoy. Afternoon tea is also another option offered within the restaurant too.  If you decide to venture out of the hotel and want to explore the city of Manchester but stuck on ideas, then I suggest visiting the nearby cathedral only 5 minutes away. The staff at The Lowry are very knowledgeable and on hand to suggest places to visit in the area if you are stuck on places to visit.

If you are looking for a luxury hotel in a stylish setting with stunning views, chic décor and top quality dining then head to The Lowry. I really enjoyed my stay at the Lowry and would recommend it to others.  The service was outstanding, all the staff were friendly and extremely helpful without being too overbearing, which can happen too often at luxury hotels. What I liked the most was the relaxed atmosphere during my time at The Lowry. This is often hard to create in a 5* hotel but The Lowry manages to do this well and still maintain its high standards, making it an ideal place to stay in Manchester.
