The iconic Lowry Hotel sits proudly on the front of River Irwell in Salford, Manchester. Behind the large glass doors hides an extraordinary world of luxury and glamour, relaxation and indulgence, fine food and fine art. With a name inspired by famous Salford artist L.S Lowry, art and creativity runs through every corner of the building. The hotel is home to 165 bedrooms, six suites and the gorgeously outrageous Presidential Suite.
Like any hotel, the Lowry has a lot to offer, from fine dining to spa treatments, but first and foremost it provides you with a home away from home, with a little bit extra. Romantic getaways or last-minute business trips, these hotel rooms are the perfect balance of urban and opulence, with prices from £139 per night.
But you don’t have to be a visitor to the city to enjoy what the Lowry has to offer. The hotel also has it’s own restaurant, bar, library and spa, all for your enjoyment.
From Pan-fried Pigeon to feta and Pistachio Pithivier, the River Restaurant provides a menu of dishes that focus on classic, seasonal food with a special Lowry twist. Choose from the à la carte menu or the three-course dinner menu, which can be purchased for £19.95 on Mondays to Wednesdays. Or even indulge in a Sunday Roast Dinner, with lashings of gravy, accompanied by live entertainment brought to you by in-house pianist and singer Kimm. Glass windows surround the building from top to bottom so the views from your table will inspire a magical evening, whatever the weather may be.
For something a little less formal, the River Bar offers a more stylish and modern space, perfect for office drinks or a catch up with friends. A more relaxed selection of food is served, such as sandwiches, flatbreads and burgers, and As the sun begins to set, the nightlife begins to seep in, and classic wines are swapped for fancy cocktails. Let your hair down a little and mingle.
Sophistication more your style? Indulge in freshly baked scones with dollops of cream and jam with the Lowry Hotel Afternoon Tea spreads. Miniature sandwiches, pastries and tarts welcome you like royalty with as much tea as you can possibly drink.
