Treat yourself with a Sunday stay for two


Manchester is a hive of activity, with events and attractions running every weekend and throughout the week. While typical weekend breaks run from Friday to Sunday, sometimes it’s nice to slow things down and experience Manchester on a lazy Sunday afternoon running through until Monday.

For those of you looking for a more relaxed city break, a Sunday overnight stay for two at CitySuites could be right up your street. Here we’ve put together our ideas on how to spend a leisurely Sunday and Monday in Manchester.

Arrive in Manchester and check-in early at CitySuites from 1pm, with a free room upgrade subject to availability. Your CitySuites stay includes a two course Sunday roast, available any time between 3pm and 7pm, so there’s no need to rush - that’s not what Sundays are for.

Follow up your Sunday roast with sunset cocktails and spectacular views from the roof terrace at Manchester’s popular haunt, 20 Stories.

Meander back to CitySuites, just a ten minute walk from 20 Stories, and relax in your luxury suite. All apartments come fully-equipped with a kitchen, lounge and flat screen TV with full Sky entertainment and sports packages. Finish off your peaceful Sunday by climbing into your cosy king-sized bed with Egyptian cotton sheets and various pillows to meet your sleep needs.

Wake when you want, either enjoying breakfast in bed or in our restaurant Embankment Kitchen and head down to our serene swimming pool area to kick start your day.

When you’re ready, why not head off to one of Manchester’s hidden gems, The Whitworth Gallery. The gallery is located on Oxford Road at The University of Manchester, and after a recent redevelopment, the stunning gallery is now fully integrated into the park it calls home. An art garden, sculpture terrace and orchard garden, alongside a landscape gallery and a café in the trees all reflect the beautiful setting. It’s the perfect place to embrace the calmer side of Manchester.

Our final recommendation for your lazy stay is a trip to HOME, Manchester’s centre for contemporary theatre, film, art, music and more. HOME has a continuous calendar of events, screenings and performances for you to enjoy in its informal and relaxed spaces. Whether you’re looking for exciting new work, to get closer to directors and writers, or just a look around, we recommend fitting HOME into your Manchester stay.
