Review: Luxe V Budget Manchester Hotels

Review: Luxe V Budget Manchester Hotels
Whilst the weather in Manchester is always a tad unpredictable whatever time of the year you visit, it's never short on activity.

From international festivals, Premier footie matches, culture, dining and retail therapy, Manchester's got the lot and is a brilliant destination for a mini-break.

Best time to plan a visit?

Depending on whether you want to relax or revel - check out the local tourism sites for the latest forthcoming events and plan accordingly. A good site for reference is Visit Manchester.

Food and drink Manchester
Dining: New York Eatery The Neighbourhood Manchester

Best time for hotel deals?

For the best hotel rates and, in theory, the best weather visit during late July/early August when business and football guests are elsewhere. Hotel trade also tends to dip in early in January, so look out for deals.
