Iconic hotel in the heart of Manchester

No matter where you want to go or when you want to travel, it’s likely that you’ll have the option of opting to book a secret hotel. In booking a secret hotel, you can economise up to 50% when you book through Hotwire and around 35% when you book through Lastminute. But it’s not just the markdowns that are enticing guests. Most of the hotels in the secret hotels collection are four and five star, allowing you to spend some time in high quality accommodation for a fraction of the usual rate.

To ensure you make an informed decision, there’s a few things to check when picking out a secret hotel. First of all look at the star rating as this will give you a realistic idea of the calibre of hotel. Next look what facilities there are in the description. If you’re visiting for leisure, you might want a hotel with a spa, whilst business guests might be looking for a hotel with translation services. Finally, lots of travel providers now integrate Google Maps, so make sure you check to find out approximately where the property is situated.
