It’s only been open since November, but Manchester’s Stock Exchange Hotel has just been chosen as one of best new luxury hotels in the world. It’s easy to see why.
The former Stock Exchange building, a striking example of Edwardian architecture, has been meticulously transformed into a hotel with a collection of 40 rooms, including two signature suites and a stunning 3,500 square foot penthouse residence.
The penthouse is the most expensive in the city, offering what owners Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and hotelier Winston Zahra claim is the best accommodation available in Manchester – with a price tag of £20,000 a month to match.
The House is an exclusive, fully serviced residence with its own roof terrace offering views over and across the Manchester skyline.
The hotel’s restaurant, The Bull & Bear, is overseen by Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge.
The Manchester hotel was awarded the title of one of World’s Best New Luxury Hotels 2019 by the researchers Luxury Travel Intelligence. LTI is a global, members-only organisation, providing digital reporting for affluent travellers.
LTI say they thoroughly research every property, on their “own dollar”. Of the 35 new luxury hotels they visited across the world in 2019, they discovered 15 “exceptional properties”.
“Manchester has become a magnet for football fans and travellers seeking urban authenticity,” said the researchers.
“And now, right in the heart of this vibrant city, is the new Stock Exchange Hotel, meticulously put together by two of the city’s most respected football legends.
“With just 40 rooms and suites, plus a hot destination restaurant The Bull & Bear headed up by Tom Kerridge, this new property has already become Manchester’s ultimate luxury bolthole.”
Stock Exchange, coming in at number 12, is the only Manchester hotel to make the list, and one of only four hotels in the whole of the UK.
“We are absolutely delighted to have been included as one of the World’s Best New Luxury Hotels 2019 by the researchers Luxury Travel Intelligence,” said Stock Exchange co-owner, Winston Zahra.
“Out of all of the amazing hotels in the world, it is a true honour to be placed at number 12 and be one of four UK hotels in the list.”
The Bull & Bear restaurant is already picking up national attention, too.
A recent review in the Financial Times declared the food “extraordinarily good” and said the restaurant deserves to be “a raging success.”
It’s quite the start for the Manchester hotel, which only looks to go from strength to strength.
