Building on the fabric of Manchester.

Building on the fabric of Manchester.

With its stunning communal spaces and spacious, one-of-a-kind apartments, Whitworth Locke is more than just a place to stay – it’s a space to live.

Set in a 19th Century cotton factory, every area – from the beautiful Conservatory Bar to the spacious co-working lounge – celebrates the building’s quirks and features. There’s also a packed calendar of events, pop-ups and fitness classes for you to join in with, if you fancy. And if you’re heading out, you’re just minutes from the city’s best bars, shops and nightlife. Settle in, and see Manchester differently.

Hi Chantelle, Thank you for your review and score. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and felt comfortable and welcome. Great to read that you felt you had everything you needed during your time here too. For the NCP the code is correct, sometimes the machine has an issue processing it. All you need to do is call the ncp, quote your registration, location, and the code and they can retrospectively refund you the discount. Hope this helps Grace
