Eclectic Hotels opens ‘baby grand hotel' King Street Townhouse in Manchester

Eclectic Hotels will open its fourth hotel on Saturday with the launch of the 40-bedroom King Street Townhouse in Manchester city centre.

The Grade II-listed building will join nearby sister properties Great John Street, Didsbury House hotel and Eleven Didsbury Park. The group also owns On the 7th members' club at MediaCityUK in Salford.

Owners Eamonn and Sally O'Loughlin spent £3.5m renovating the Italian renaissance-style building to create a restaurant, tea rooms, a roof garden with a pool and views over the city centre, and conferencing and event space for up to 150 people.

Eamonn O'Loughlin said: "The regeneration of King Street is significant for Manchester and the opening of our fifth property in this iconic area is an important landmark for us. We have named King Street Townhouse a ‘baby grand hotel' as it is a small and cosy adaption of the grand hotel."

Sally O'Loughlin, who has undertaken the interior design at the hotel, added: "The hotel boasts the same understated luxury as our other properties. However, King Street Townhouse has its own distinctive and charming character."

King Street Townhouse will be employing 70 staff.
