...the real deal

A spacious first-floor serviced apartment with tall ceilings. Loft combines an industrial aesthetic of exposed concrete and steel with cool, modern minimalism. In short, it's very New York loft. It has a large open-plan living and kitchen area, with a bedroom opening onto a wide, comfortably furnished balcony. Stunning, totally glazed bathroom.


£550 per week. Minimum one week stays.

Once an old dye works, the building was restored and converted into apartments by one of the country's leading developers, Urban Splash. Staying Cool bought an empty shell and designed its first ever one bedroom serviced apartment here.

The luxury serviced apartment is in the Castlefield quarter, on the banks of the Bridgewater Canal. You are only moments from Manchester Central and the conference quarter and in less than 15 minutes on foot you're right in the heart of the main shopping area. En route you'll take in some of the city's most interesting boutique shops, plus plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes.

A secure parking space is available underneath the building. Extra spaces on request.
Urban Splash is the developer behind the UK's most exciting urban regeneration projects. Their approach differs from the norm; they challenge convention and design with imagination. Don't take our word for it, come and see for yourself.

In the press

"The apartments bring together the things you might expect in a boutique hotel - smart design, high quality toiletries and loads of Apple technology to enjoy - with things that you would usually find at home - a stainless steel kitchen, washing machine and a comfortable lounge," Times Online

Read Mark's full   review online. We've upgraded the Sky package and had a new boiler installed since Mark's visit. (The coffee was very much in date - silly us had accidentally printed the wrong date on a batch of labels!)

Things that guests love about Loft

  • The glass bathroom
  • The way the space flows in a circular fashion
  • The stainless steel kitchen
  • The balcony for balmy nights

Things they don't

  • The view doesn't do justice to the tall windows
