Once a Victorian schoolhouse, this plush boutique hotel next to a huge TV studio complex now attracts well-heeled business executives, television stars, and anyone seeking something truly special. Duplex rooms have huge windows. Baroque furnishings, rich fabrics, and deep colors create a chic contrast with the original wooden flooring and exposed brick walls. Bathrooms, on a separate level, are equally spacious and luxurious. For some relaxation, unwind in the cozy Oyster Bar or head up to the rooftop garden with its outdoor hot tub. Great John Street has two sister hotels in the fashionable Manchester suburb of Didsbury: the Didsbury House Hotel and Eleven.
