We joined the breakfast tour of the iconic Manchester Unity Building.
Fantastic!!
The breakfast, with champagne was a great way to start the day. The staff were lovely, attentive and charming. The breakfast was enjoyable.
Chloe was our tour guide. She was very informative, passing on lots of interesting information about the building, from construction in 1932 to missing crocodiles (?!) to murdered jewellers.
The Board Room is absolutely terrific - all the Art Deco pieces are wonderful.
Many thanks to Dr Pajouhesh for overseeing the significant refurbishments and upgrades of the building.

I went for breakfast before a full day meeting in the city. I had the ava on toast and it was delicious and attractively presented. Service was pleasant and efficient. The coffee was good too.

We enjoyed our tour of the Manchester Unity building. We learned about its history and we had access to the Boardroom and the rooftop terrace which are normally not accessible to the public. Our breakfast of eggs benedict and cake was better than expected for a tour meal.

we booked brunch and a tour for Fathers Day. The brunch menu was limited, which is understandable in this situation but we all enjoyed our meals and deserts. Service was lovely and the tour interesting. I love the building already and it was great to hear the history and see inside the lovely rooms. Hats off to the private owner who has done a lovely and loving restoration while keeping the building in working order. I was hoping to climb the actual tower (as I did as an architectural student in the 80's) but that was not part of it.
thoroughly enjoyed it! Even our teenage daughter was busy taking photos!!
