Birthday getaway

So it was my birthday yesterday. I am now 25. I’m not going to do that thing like ‘ohhhhh ma gawd I’m so old’ but seriously where are the years going!? I’m 25 and I’m married. I’m not ready to adult yet please don’t make me! Isn’t it the older you get the quicker the years pass by!?

This year we decided to stay at the Gotham Hotel in Manchester so I thought I would do a little blog post on it because it was amazing! We got the dinner B&B package for £150 which was really good value as it included a 2 course dinner off their set menu (or £20 pp credit off the a la Carte menu), full breakfast & access to the rooftop bar which has amazing views of Manchester’s skyline. We found this offer on their website which was the cheapest we found over anywhere else including trip advisor and secret escapes.

When we arrived concierge came over helped us with our bags and took them straight to our room. Obviously we had a giggle that Mr & Mrs Manchester were checking into a hotel in Manchester with them! Parking was £25 for 24 hours which is quite pricey in my opinion however it is valet parking so all you have to do is pull up outside the hotel and they take your car and park it for you which makes life really easy especially as you’re in the city centre! The hotel is attached to Jamie Oliver’s restaurant and opposite Rosso restaurant so it really is slap bang in the city centre. I lived in Manchester for 2 years so I know it pretty well but if you were wanting to explore or shop it’s the perfect location.

Here are a few photos from our stay, if you’re looking for a quirky hotel in Manchester with great service, staff & food I would totally recommend checking out this hotel!




Regular posts will resume in the new year! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Em, xo
