Malmaison Manchester Deansgate

Last week we were invited down to try the newly opened Malmaison Deansgate in Manchester. Located right in the city centre & within walking distance to everything from Selfridges to the Palace Theatre, the hotel prides itself on having a retro vibe with subtle homage to nature, art & design.

We stayed in the Club Deluxe room which was incredible spacious, with a huge floral canopy design over the bed & some very appreciated Ferrero Rocher by the coffee machine. The bathroom transported us miles away from grey Manchester with a waterfall shower & Rainforest design and there was some beautifully chosen design accents in the main bedroom such as a full length 70s mirror.

We dined in the rooftop restaurant Sora, which specialised in Asian Tapas and cocktails. I can recommend the Dragon rolls Beef Fillet Tataki, & to drink, the signature Cherry Blossom Negroni. The restaurant does boast an outdoor rooftop area where you can take your cocktails outside whilst looking over the Manchester skyline and Albert Square - although it was unfortunately true Manchester weather so we enjoyed the view from our table in the warm restaurant instead.
