19th Century Director's Room in Manchester

Built-in 1912 as part of Paul Waterhouse’s extension to the original Refuge Assurance building, the Directors’ Rooms on the second floor of the Refuge Building were even furnished with their own elaborate staircase in bronze and Carrara marble. These remain the grandest rooms in the whole of the hotel, brimming with architectural detail and craftsmanship, certain to create a lasting impression. Oak paneling, chandeliers and intricate period detail such as a feature fireplace make this room perfect for both corporate and private events.
