The Lowry Hotel, Manchester

The Lowry Hotel was the first five star hotel in Manchester and one of only 20 hotels in the UK to be part of Leading Hotels of The World. The hotel offers 165 bedrooms including six suites and the Charles Forte Presidential Suite. This is complemented by restaurant, conference, meeting, functions and spa facilities.

John Rowan and Partners were appointed to undertake a full Technical Due Diligence survey and report on both the building fabric and mechanical & electrical services prior to our client, Westmont Hospitality’s, successful purchase of the property.

Following this, we were appointed to handle the FF&E and Supply Chain Management for the refurbishment of the landmark 5 star Lowry Hotel, Manchester. Guests can now enjoy an enhanced resident experience through the introduction of new SMART TVs and Wi-Fi, alongside new curtains, carpets, fabrics and colour schemes throughout the bedrooms and public areas. The Riverside Suites were also renovated, to create themed suites, working with Manchester born artist Alan Rankle. While the Spa was reconfigured and fully renovated to incorporate specialist QMS treatments.
