This week Josh and I had the pleasure of staying at The Cow Hollow Hotel in Manchester [*gifted stay]. You can find this character-filled inn on Newton Street in the beloved Northern Quarter, surrounded by the exciting hustle and bustle of city life.

We spent one great evening there and, after just 24 hours, vowed we'd definitely have to go back again.

We began our stay with a warm welcome to The Amelia Suite, with complimentary sweets on arrival.

The room was like a cosy little guesthouse with a fire place, open brick walls and bright wooden windows. It had such an old-style feel, yet is kept up-to-date with tech savvy accessories to compliment it perfectly. In each room there's high quality Bluetooth speakers and free Netflix, along with a hair dryer, curling tongs and straighteners to use (what a dream, right?).

The King Size Hypnos bed allowed me to have one of the best nights sleep I've had in ages, whilst the complimentary service of milk and cookies in the evening just topped the whole night off with a cosy, comfortable and homely feel.

The bathrooms are small, yet super chic and clean, featuring large rainfall showers, with soft towels and full-size REN products to use. This is also where you'll find the hair dryer, straightener and curling tong I mentioned a moment ago.

I loved marble fixtures and rustic-style taps. It's the perfect place to get ready for the day/evening too, as there is also a light-up magnifying make-up mirror in there to get the best lighting for hitting the town.

Complimentary Prosecco and nibbles are also on offer at the bar, which is small, yet still completely glamorous, with friendly, chatty staff to go along with it.

It's decor is classy, with character and a stylish feel - I particularly loved the bar stools to perch on and the tropical plants to add to the 'home away from home' setting.

It's the perfect way to start an evening before heading out into town to explore more of what Manchester has to offer - plus the Prosecco is some of the best that both Josh and I have ever had, we couldn't rave about it enough!

In the morning we were greeted by a delicious continental breakfast that was brought up to our room at our own specified timing. We indulged in the tasty granola and yoghurt, brioche buns and coffee, whilst enjoying the free Netflix on the smart TV and making the most of our last hour or so in our dreamy suite.

We then checked out at the perfect time of 11am, and were sent on our way with a delicious complimentary take-away coffee.

All in all, it's probably the best hotel I've stayed at in a while and I'll definitely be keeping it in mind for future get-aways and be recommending it to anyone that wants to enjoy a little taste of Manchester.
