Venue Spotlight: YOTEL, London Shoreditch
June 23, 2022

Our venue spotlight for this week, specially chosen by Lottie, is the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel. Located in the heart of Manchester’s city centre, the hotel makes for an ideal location for guests visiting the city. As well, with it being voted as the number 25 Best Hotel in the UK, guests can’t go wrong with a visit here.

Housed in a magnificent terracotta grade II listed-building, Kimpton Clocktower dates back to 1890. The building was originally opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters and features an elegant glassed-domed lobby.

The hotel itself offers 18 rooms for meeting and event spaces. The largest is the Ballroom which can hold 1000 delegates theatre-style or 500 for dinner. The Refuge and Winter Gardens feature as the hotel’s restaurants, both offering a distinctive dining experience. This hotel really gives the wow factor to guests attending events held here.

With the hotel being in the heart of Manchester, there are plenty of activities for guests to partake in. The Manchester Arena and football stadiums are popular with most tourists. Situated on Oxford St, the glamourous hotel isn’t far from the action. It’s a short 2-minute walk from Oxford Road train station which makes for easy access transport nearby.

Why I love this venue

Kimpton Clocktower is a destination where glamour and luxury meets one-of-a-kind craftsmanship. The hotel’s luxurious architecture and stylish interior is a real eye-catcher for hotel enthusiasts. Also, the location of the venue makes for a perfect stay for guests looking to venture out and about.
