Different Types of Accommodation in Manchester
We know Manchester accommodation inside out! There is a variety of Manchester accommodation options to choose from, all with different prices to suit all budget ranges. You can go and camp if that’s what your stag or hen is into to keep the costs really low! This can be the barebones style or if this isn’t quite your bag, you can get glamping pods with hot tubs just outside of Manchester, which can be perfect for a fun filled weekend of camping in style!
Moving onto the more indoor environments, hostels are a great shout for stag and hen parties visiting Manchester for the weekend. Hostels have stepped things up a notch in recent years, they aren’t the horrific establishments which you may or may not have seen in that film that I shall not mention… No, things have been brought smack bang up to date and some of the dorms are big enough to accommodate all of you with essentials and even some luxuries that you might not expect from a hostel. They’ve even been lovingly nicknamed “Poshtels” which we think is quite funny.
The next Manchester accommodation type is your private rooms aka Bed and Breakfast. There are loads of B&B’s around Manchester and these can be great especially if you are looking for a) a bed and b) a breakfast.
But seriously, coming back to a comfy bed and a cooked breakfast might be the perfect option for your stag or hen group depending on the group size. You can get some wonderful value B&B’s in Manchester so its worth having a look around for a great deal for your stag or hen weekend away. Make sure you note that a lot of these are not based in the city centre so don’t forget to factor in the added cost of getting from the heart of Manchester and back!
Hotels are in the top 3 most popular types of Manchester accommodation for stag or hen weekends away. Especially if not everyone knows each other that well, it can be easier to group people who do know each other into one room, or some people can have the option to have the extra space if they want to. The options are endless! Then there’s the different scales, you can have a nice 4* hotel with a spa and pool which you can use to put a relaxing spin on your stag or hen weekend, or you can live it up in a 5* hotel and be treated like royalty for the weekend!
Serviced Apartments are becoming the most popular choice for most stag and hen party weekenders who are visiting Manchester. They have multiple bedrooms and lounging areas with kitchens and that element of luxury. Serviced apartments can be hard to come by in Manchester as they get booked up very quickly! However, if you’re planning ahead and getting your Manchester accommodation pinned down early then you will avoid disappointment! Result! It might be the case that you hire out 3 or 4 apartments in one block so that you are all together but not at the same time! Either way, they are great for stag and hen weekends!
Last but not least! Self-catering houses! These are the best things to have for a stag or hen party! Your weekend can be spent close to your mates and the things you can get up to are endless! Loads of space for mobile cocktail classes or cooking a big meal together, it’s a great shout! How much you spend can really vary depending on how much luxury you want in your stay. You can move a little bit further afield and have a house with loads of garden space and even a pool to really make the weekend a show stopper!
