The Principal – Hotel
With its clock tower and striking Victorian architecture, The Principal Manchester is an unmistakable landmark in the city’s skyline. A magnificent, terracotta Grade II listed building, the hotel has a history dating back to 1890, when it first opened as The Refuge Assurance Company headquarters.
From the largest hotel ballroom in the northwest of England to the oak-panelled Directors’ boardroom, every one of our meeting rooms has a story to tell. Join us in The Refuge Dining Room & Public Bar for globally inspired small plates, craft beers and cocktails curated by the award-winning team from Volta.
Opposite Oxford Road Station and just a 10-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly, The Principal Manchester is perfectly placed for business travel and weekend getaways, and is close to many of the city’s attractions.
