The Midland Manchester prepares for new spa launch


The Midland Hotel in Manchester is gearing up to launch its new spa offering, scheduled to open in June.

Owners of the historic hotel in Peter Street in the city have invested more than £1.5m in revamping the basement of the property into a new destination spa and split-level gym.

Complete with eight treatment rooms, a dedicated cafe and a full thermal spa and relaxation pool, the spa will also be home to a limited membership gym, which bosses hope will become Manchester’s most private.

The hotel originally gained planning permission for a new gym back in 2006, but when the proposal was hit by the recession, the project stalled until plans could properly be finalised.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, hotel manager Mike Magrane said: “When the recession hit we stopped with those plans, and revisited it in 2013 and came up with the plan to create a really great new destination spa with its own private gym.

“The main focus has been to create a destination spa, which includes the largest relaxation spa in Manchester and possibly across the region.”

June is set to be a busy month for the 312-bedroom hotel, with a dedicated TV documentary all about the daily goings on at the hotel set to air on Channel Five and the refurbishment of the hotel’s award-winning The French restaurant scheduled to start in August.
