A luxury hotel is set to open within the Grade-II listed Lancashire House, a former shipping warehouse located on Peter Street, this Summer.

With style and opulence, ‘Forty-Seven’ is where bold interior design schemes dance with the contrast of Manchester’s industrial heritage. The hotel promises to be the perfect place to stay in the heart of the city.

The new hotel will focus on comfort and elegance, offering a one-of-a-kind experience from the perfect spot to explore the city; where guests can make ‘Forty-Seven’ memories or catch ‘Forty-Seven’ winks.

Located on one of Manchester’s most vibrant streets, the hotel will boast 32 bedrooms, including a range of duplex and signature suites – with bold designs which complement both the heritage and original features of the building.

‘Forty-Seven’, 47 Peter Street, is an area that is rich with the illustrious history of the Peterloo Massacre and the Suffragettes. The hotel will also be home to The Peterman – the bar – which promises a nod to those tales of the past. Re-forming the focus of the Petersfield stories, The Peterman adds its own twist, like that of a lemon in a good martini.

Guests and city-dwellers alike are invited to unlock hand-crafted cocktails here, in a place to hide away for afternoons with friends and loved ones, sipping cocktails late into the night.

Within Forty-Seven, Manchester’s much-loved Asha’s Restaurant is also set to re-open this summer. Where tradition meets modernity to create a lovingly and uniquely elevated dining experience, Asha’s offers a regal feast, showcasing a culinary journey through India’s famed North-West frontier province.

Kro Hospitality’s other city centre venue, Velvet Hotel, Bar and Brasserie, is currently undergoing an extension of the Hotel to create an additional 18 bedrooms that will offer elegant luxury. The new rooms are a welcome addition to the already highly-rated Velvet Hotel, and aim to heighten the guest experience.

Kim Eivind Krohn, owner of KRO Hospitality, said: “We’re delighted to announce the latest update on our recent venture to create a new, exciting and extravagant hotel in the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Peter Street, which is home to popular venues including our very own Asha’s Restaurant, which will be reopening in our new hotel, ‘Forty-Seven’”.

Forty-Seven Hotel will be open in Summer 2022.
