The Abel Heywood, the charm of the English bed and breakfast

Halfway between pub and boutique hotel, The Abel Heywood offers a universe at once traditional and trendy, for engaging prices without ever cutting on quality.

The Abel Heywood is before anything else an old school pub in Northern Quarter, Manchester's central district. With a wooden bar, dark wood floors and mismatched chairs, the address loves to accentuate contrasts, mixing traditions and avant-garde. On the first floor, a boutique hotel offers 15 stylish rooms that recall the bed and breakfasts of the English countryside. Fake exposed brick walls (actually a wallpaper motif) give the place a very local feeling, and the city's various sights are being displayed above the beds, using Stephen Lowry's paintings, emblematic in the region. The establishment itself was named after Abel Heywood, former mayor of Manchester in the 19th century. Even though the pub is located right beneath the rooms, the efficient soundproofing will guarantee quietness at night, but feel free to mingle with the lively crowds in the neighbourhood if you so desire! In the morning, an English breakfast awaits you. An excellent way to start off the day and soak in local culture, right before a visit to the nearby National Football Museum for instance. So British!
