Finally, hotels across the UK have flung open their doors to visitors again. And Manchester – home many of the country’s ritziest places to stay – is no exception. Now, in an effort to boost tourism over the coming months, the city has launched a campaign to pump life back into its neglected hotels by offering free nights to visitors. 

The ‘Have a Night on Us’ scheme will grant visitors a free third night when they book a two-night stay at 12 of the city’s top hotels. At the more luxurious end, for example, you could try out Kimpton Clocktower and the Lowry Hotel, or if you’d prefer to go cheap, the likes of Holiday Inn and Roomzzz are also getting involved.

Because let’s be honest: there’s plenty else to spend your money on in Manchester this summer. Manchester International Festival makes a splashy return in July, and then you’ve also got Sounds of the City, the brand-new RHS Garden Bridgewater, Manchester Jazz Festival, Pride, and the well-received ‘Grayson’s Art Club’ exhibition at Manchester Gallery as well.

Several other hotels are planning to join the campaign, and with Manchester’s restaurants, bars and attractions all now gearing up for return to something like normality this summer, there’s no better to time discover this properly marvellous city. Now you’ll have an extra day to take it all in, too.

Sound good? You can find out more about the ‘Have a Night on Us’ scheme here.
