Abode Hotel Manchester a must for any luxury weekend retreat
The Abode Hotels are fast becoming known as a top class boutique styled hotel, with several branches already open through out the United Kingdom and now one in Scotland as well. It offers an excellent range of comfortable, well equipped rooms with a unique contemporary style that easily appeals to both business and leisure guests from all over the world. Though the interior of the Abode Hotels can be described as ultra modern with sleek fittings and a range of top quality amenities, many of the hotel branches have been built into refurbished buildings that date back as far as the 1800s.
The Abode Hotel Manchester is the perfect example of this, as it has been built into an old Victorian era warehouse dating back to 1898 and previously used as a cotton storage location. The Hotel retains much of its original charm and character with unique pillars, arched windows and detailed metal gates. The interior is more of a fusion of old and new with several Victorian styled elements, such as winding wooden staircases and hanging chandeliers though this is blended together with trendy contemporary furnishings and a cool minimal design edge.
