The AJ has teamed up with Rocco Forte Hotels to bring you the chance to stay in top UK hotels for a fraction of the normal cost. Take advantage of the comforts of the five-star Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh or Lowry Hotel in Manchester in the second of the AJ's summer hotel offers.
The Balmoral offer entitles you and a partner to be upgraded to a luxurious 'superior'room for just £76 per person, per night, Friday to Sunday. That includes full Scottish breakfast and complimentary use of the newly refurbished Roman-style spa and fitness centre. The price represents a 54 per cent saving on the normal rate of £164.25 per person.
The Balmoral opened in 1902 and was styled on the great hotels of Europe, becoming part of the Forte group in 1997. Like the first hotel in our offer, St David's Hotel & Spa in Cardiff (AJ 27.6.02), Forte's sister Olga Polizzi worked on the interior design. It is situated on Princes Street near to Waverley Station and a short walk from the Castle.
The Balmoral offer runs until 30 December , excluding 11-31 August , subject to availability.
To book, call hotel reservations on 0131 556 1111, quoting The Architects'Journal.
The Lowry, meanwhile, is perfect for visiting Daniel Libeskind's new Imperial War Museum North. Our offer entitles you to a contemporary-styled river-view room for just £70 per person, per night, Friday to Sunday. Full English breakfast and temporary membership of the hotel's health spa is included - the normal rate is £195 per person. The hotel is part of Manchester's Chapel Wharf development, next to the Trinity Footbridge and The Lowry centre.
The offer is valid until 30 December , excluding 25 July - 5 August, subject to availability. To book, call hotel reservations on 0161 827 4000, again quoting The Architects'Journal.
A single room supplement applies for both hotels.
Watch out for more offers in the AJ throughout the summer.
