A new luxury hotel is coming to Peter Street – with Asha’s restaurant to return

Forty-Seven hotel will boast 32 bedrooms, including a bold range of duplex and signature suites

A new luxury hotel from Kro Hospitality is set to open this summer within the Grade-II listed Lancashire House, a former shipping warehouse at 47 Peter Street.

Located on one of Manchester’s most vibrant streets, Forty-Seven hotel will boast 32 bedrooms, including a range of duplex and signature suites – with bold designs which complement both the heritage and original features of the building.

Within Forty-Seven, Manchester’s much-loved Indian restaurant Asha’s is also set to re-open this summer.

Among a number of highly reputable accolades, Asha’s Manchester is Michelin Guide listed, included in The Times Top 14 Restaurants in the UK, and won the British Curry Awards – Best Restaurant outside London 2019.

Forty-Seven will also be home to The Peterman – the bar – which promises a nod to tales of the past.

Guests and city-dwellers alike are invited to unlock hand-crafted cocktails here, in a place to hide away for afternoons with friends and loved ones, sipping cocktails late into the night.

The new hotel is to be led by General Manager, Ryan Thompson, and will focus on comfort and elegance, offering a one-of-a-kind experience from the perfect spot to explore the city, say owners.

Ryan has joined with a prestigious background in travel, events and hotels from the North-West, including Edwardian Hotels Manchester, Cottons Hotel and Spa in Cheshire and most recently, Hotel Gotham located on Manchester’s King Street.

He says that the focus in his new role will be to “deliver intelligent luxury for those who appreciate both statement and style while they eat, sleep, drink and enjoy time in the heart of the city”.

Kro Hospitality’s other city centre venue, Velvet Hotel, Bar and Brasserie on Canal Street, is also currently undergoing an extension of the hotel to create an additional 18 bedrooms that will offer elegant luxury.

“We’re delighted to announce the latest update on our recent venture to create a new, exciting and extravagant hotel in the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Peter Street, which is home to popular venues including our very own Asha’s Restaurant, which will be reopening in our new hotel, Forty-Seven”, said Kim Eivind Krohn, owner of KRO Hospitality.
