Luxury hotel comes to Booth Street

Eclectic Hotels has secured listed building consent and planning permission from Manchester City Council for a luxury townhouse hotel in Booth Street, Manchester.

Eclectic Hotels was advised by Turley. The King Street Townhouse hotel, which is situated at 8 – 10 Booth Street in Manchester's Upper King Street conservation area, will have 40 bedrooms and will be Eclectic Hotels' fourth hotel in the city.

The hotel will also offer a restaurant and bar, function room and events space and a new rooftop extension with infinity spa pool and terrace.

Turley provided specialist heritage advice in relation to the conversion of the grade two-listed building.

Work on the King Street Townhouse is expected to begin within the next few months and be completed by early 2015.

Eamonn O'Loughlin, owner of Eclectic Hotels said: "We have worked closely with Manchester City Council and our design team to create a luxury townhouse hotel within the King Street conservation area. We are very grateful to the city's planning department for their support and guidance."

Katy Lightbody, associate director of Turley Heritage, said: "This is an impressive Italian Renaissance former bank and the scheme successfully reconciles the sensitivities of the listed building with the need for new contemporary accommodation. We look forward to seeing work commence on site."

Originally built in 1874 for the Manchester Salford Trustees Bank, the building was designed by local architect Edward Salomons and has been used until recently as offices.

King Street Townhouse has been designed by AEW Architects.

Eclectic Hotels operates Great John Street hotel in Manchester city centre, and the Didsbury House and Eleven Didsbury Park hotels in Didsbury.
