Indulge in five star festivities with winter wonderland at The Lowry Hotel

From festive feasting and seasonal afternoon tea to luxury stays and pampering spa days, celebrate the season in style

Enter a Winter Wonderland like no other this year at The Lowry Hotel.

Christmas is all about coming together for celebration – and this year, we’re looking forward to that more than ever.

So why not make it a festive season to remember with a long-awaited five star celebration at The Lowry Hotel?

From festive family feasting or afternoon tea in The River Restaurant to special offers on luxury stays, party packages and pampering spa treatments, it’s the perfect spot to celebrate the season in style.

Five star festive dining

Book a festive feast with friends and family in The River Restaurant, offering a modern take on classic British cuisine with a variety of festive menus. 

Get your sparkle back with a delicious Christmas themed three course lunch or dinner from just £24.95pp, with options including ballantine of Cheshire turkey with all the trimmings and traditional Christmas pudding with brandy butterscotch.

Weekend treat? Sundays in The River Restaurant are always a special occasion, but this December they’re offering a special seasonal three course menu for just £29.95.

Festive afternoon tea

A complete Christmas indulgence, try afternoon tea with a festive twist with mouthwatering cakes and heartwarming festive fancies for all the family to enjoy. 

For £24.50 (or £34 including a glass of champagne), you’ll get a selection of savoury treats – including the rather special roast Cheshire turkey with sage stuffing and cranberry sauce – followed by plain and fruit scones, strawberry preserve and Cornish clotted cream.

And don’t forget the seasonal sweet treats – think Mont Blanc with chestnut and dark chocolate, and gingerbread cake with clementine and mascarpone.

Christmas Day dining

Why not take the stress and strain out of Christmas Day, and instead celebrate and enjoy time with friends and family in the luxurious surroundings of The River Restaurant?

Enjoy a glass of prosecco on arrival followed by a delicious lunch, with sumptuous starters such as tartare of dry aged sirloin with oscietra caviar, miso and coal oil powder.

As well as traditional turkey or a delicious veggie Wellington option, other mains include fillet of British beef and Marmite glazed cheek with clotted cream mash and winter truffle, followed by a selection of desserts and fine British cheeses.

Wonderland at Dusk party nights

Get ready to experience a Wonderland like no other when you step through the twinkling archway on The Lowry Hotel’s shared party nights.

Available on various dates from December, you can enjoy a drink on arrival followed by a decadent and festive three course meal, followed by further refreshments and dancing until 1am. 

It’s just £59pp to get together and celebrate in  style – and you can book it for a private party night, too.

Seasonal spa pampering

Take a bit of time to unwind and recharge with a festive treatment to melt away tension in The Lowry Hotel’s award-winning spa.

The Wonderland Bliss treatment (from £65) incorporates the soothing heat of basalt stones combined with hot aromatic oils to deeply relax with a tranquillity scalp massage and warming, nourishing facial massage. 

To keep the heat flowing from the inside out, you then get a rich hot chocolate following your treatment to enjoy with a delicious cookie in their relaxation room.

Or try the Glow Package (from £80). Choose between the softening and invigorating full body scrub or a deeply relaxing back, neck and shoulder massage applied in Hawaiian sweeping strokes. 

Then whilst you are then cocooned and cosy under fluffy towels, you will be treated to an ELEMIS facial and scalp massage whilst the oils work their hydrating magic. 

Following your treatments you will be served The Lowry Hotel’s mouthwatering afternoon tea or two-course lunch over in The River Restaurant, for the ultimate day of pampering.

Special room rates and packages

You can enjoy a superb saving off the standard room rate over the winter months with a specially crafted stay in the lead up to the arrival of The Lowry Hotel Wonderland, with prices starting from just £123.

Or go for the all-out with a Christmas Day package which includes an indulgent festive lunch, late check out and car parking from £400.

There are some special New Year’s Eve offers, too, if you’re looking ahead.
