Eclectic Hotels Open New City Centre Boutique Townhouse
 

CITY centre hotels are popping up all over Manchester at the moment. Another to be added to the ever growing list is Eclectic Hotels’ new venture, King Street Townhouse.

Despite its name, the new boutique hotel will actually be situated on Booth Street.

This is the fifth venture for Eclectic Hotels and business partners Eamonn and Sally O'Loughlin, and will join their portfolio alongside Great John Street, Didsbury House and Eleven Didsbury Park hotels. The new hotel is expected to create around 70 jobs.

King Street Townhouse will be in a Grade II listed building and is expected to combine the interior decorating style of Eclectic Hotels, whilst still keeping its individuality.

Sally, from Eclectic Hotels, said: "The design of King Street Townhouse will be distinctive and although our Eclectic style will be evident the new hotel will have its own identity just as the identity of Great John Street and our Didsbury hotels are so very different. King Street Townhouse is set to be both impressive and intimate in style."

The hotel will include 40 bedrooms and suites, gym and spa treatment rooms, afternoon tea rooms for conferencing and event space for up to 200 people. Another distinctive feature is the south facing rooftop infinity spa pool, with views of the spires and clock tower of the Town Hall. There will also be a south facing roof terrace, available for private hire.

"We have worked closely with Manchester City Council and our design team to create a luxury townhouse hotel within the King Street conservation area," said Eamonn. "We are very grateful to the city's planning department for their support and guidance. I remain heavily involved in the project on a daily basis to ensure the concept we have devised is made a reality and hopefully welcomed by the public."

Renovations and building work has already began and the hotel is scheduled to open in spring 2015.

The wrong name for it. Nothing wrong with using Booth Street in the name. It'll be confusing for many, including the poor postman.

Does it matter. It looks like a great addition to Manchester. It will be near the new Gotham too. I don't think a superhero will be swinging from that roof anytime soon. So what is in a name. King street is earmarked to change from a shopping street to a dining street,so the new Townhouse with reference to King street will be part of the transformation towards a hospitality economy. It will be much nicer to see people buzzing about at night rather than the Ghost Town it is at night now. With Iberica and Hawksmoor opening their first Restaurants outside London,Manchester is cementing it's place as the undoubted second city.
