The best meeting rooms Manchester has to offer
A good meeting room is more than a comfy chair and a coffee machine that doesn’t feel like an assault against the barista community. Truly excellent meeting rooms inhabit a space that benefits the meeting itself – bolstering creativity; birthing new and creative ideas. Manchester’s many offices and workspaces play host to a wide range of meeting rooms and workshops that you can hire out. Here are a few of the best ones.

1. A meeting room for the industrious: Dalton Suite, Science and Industry Museum
The normal roster of identikit meeting rooms can sometimes make the meeting itself feel stale and unproductive.
Shake off the cobwebs with a meeting room that is literally situated in a museum dedicated to innovation. Benefitting from the high ceilings of a converted warehouse, the Dalton suite gives you all the expected meeting space facilities, with the novelty of a genuinely inspiring setting.
2. A meeting space for and by professionals: The Edwardian Manchester
Sometimes it’s best to leave it to the experts.
The Edwardian Manchester is Radisson’s Manchester flagship and boasts a range of refined meeting rooms for whatever professional event you may be wanting to have.
Take Private Room 6, for example – this space can host meetings, dinners or small conferences and boasts a wall-to-ceiling window to stop you and your guests from feeling cooped in.
3. A meeting room for the adventurous: Jacamar Yacht
Like doing things differently? Hire out a 130ft luxury yacht and impress your colleagues with this city-centre yacht within sight of the imposing Old Trafford stadium.
With space for 15 guests, TVs and even three bedrooms to retire to, all you have to do is try and not fall in.
4. A meeting room for lovers of natural light and outdoor space: Victoria Suite, Manchester Victoria & Albert Hotel
An airy meeting space in the heart of a 4-star hotel, this V&A room excels at all the expected touchpoints of a good meeting room.
Bathed in natural light and offering access to an outdoor area, the ever-present threat of office fatigue can be avoided with this genuinely pleasant space. Expect a variety of seating setups and hotel-quality service.
5. A boardroom for high-level meetings: Chamber Space
Sometimes you need to be out to impress.
Chamber Space’s boardroom makes use of its setting – the prestigious Manchester Chamber of Commerce – and surrounds your meeting in plush furnishings and characterful wooden panels. It’s a meeting space to show off a certain old-world dignity and quiet confidence.
The meeting room holds thirty comfortably and comes with all the bells, whistles and service you’d expect.
6. A meeting room all the attendees will remember: The Director’s Room, Kimpton Clocktower
Easily the most impressive space on this list, The Director’s Room at Kimpton Clocktower Hotel (previously known as the Principal Hotel) is for those meetings where you have to secure a positive outcome.
The hotel itself is an impressive spot, the eponymous tower dominates the Mancunian skyline and will be familiar to anyone who knows the city.
The meeting room itself does not disappoint, either – high ceilings, wide fireplaces and hanging chandeliers create an atmosphere of distinguished opulence. This one will close the deal.
7. A meeting room to get creative in: Big ideas space, INNSIDE Manchester
A breath of fresh air for those looking for something more contemporary and left of field. This creative workspace is big, bright and unusual.
Relax on comfy sofas, workout with exercise balls or even get your thoughts written down on the walls themselves, it’s a great space for lateral thinking and getting outside of the box.
8. A meeting room for privacy: Club Room, Host Social
Encased in beautiful Crittal-glass windows that can be curtained off to ensure a genuinely private meeting space, Host Social’s Club Room offers 16 lucky attendees the chance to experience a beautiful, versatile space in the well-connected Salford area.
9. A meeting space with its own bar: The Den at Deaf Institute
An intimate subterranean setting for meetings that would benefit from being well-lubricated, The Den oozes cosy, comfortable energy.
With room for up to 60 guests, this one is for those who like to blend business with pleasure and move seamlessly from coffee to cocktails.
10. A meeting room for lovers of high ceilings: The Workshop, Department Bonded Warehouse
Located in a converted industrial building within throwing distance of the River Irwell, The Workshop blends the old and new with style.
Expect high-spec tech to supplement your meeting, whilst the high rafters and wide windows ensure that you and your colleagues have space to reach for those big ideas.

Your guide to booking a meeting room in Manchester
Looking for a beautiful meeting room conveniently located in Manchester? We’ve got you.
Meetings are the nervous system of any functioning company. They provide the platform for an exchange of ideas, room to brainstorm and mind map and get the collective creativity flowing in the right direction. If meetings themselves are important then were believe the rooms they occur in are too. No one wants to make key quarterly decisions in a broom cupboard, your boss’ face inches from your own. Luckily this oddly intimate nightmare is easily avoided. Manchester doesn’t lack amazing meeting spaces that can be hired out day and night for your professional wants. But what if you’ve never booked a meeting room before? Panic not. We’ve pooled our collective experience (using a very nice meeting room, we should add) and are happy to bring you the guide to booking your own ideal Manchester meeting venue.
Getting the vibe right
Not all meeting rooms are created equal, and some are better suited to particular jobs. If you’re having an internal creative meeting, you may want to consider a unique, out-of-the-box space that can inspire some lateral thoughts. For external meetings, you’ll probably want to stick with the classic, professional setup (think board room style seating with a good view of the Manchester sprawl).
Meeting everyone’s requirements
If you’ve been taken with booking a meeting space in Manchester then you’re taking on the responsibility of making sure that everyone can attend. This means being super vigilant when it comes to aspects like accessibility and inclusivity. Giving prior thought to physical access and dietary requirements to your Manchester meeting is a great way to be a conscientious planner.
Extras maketh the meeting
Think carefully about what your meeting needs to really go well. Tea and coffee are given essentials, and some meeting rooms in Manchester will provide food alongside. Technical capabilities are also an important consideration: are you presenting or brainstorming? Will you need audio and visual tech to bring your meeting to life? What about natural lighting and windows – these seeming afterthoughts can actually have a profound effect on the outcome of your workshop or meeting.
Booking your Manchester meeting room
The final stage to securing a Manchester meeting room is to get your criteria out to all of the best professional venues in the city and receive quality responses without getting stressed. Luckily we can circulate your enquiry for no cost and put you in direct contact with the very best meeting venues in Manchester. You’re welcome.
For meetings in Manchester, you are spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:
The Boardroom, Mercure Manchester Piccadilly - With plush professional furniture and a location that couldn’t be more central, Mercure’s Piccadilly outpost is bound to impress any clients or colleagues.
The Community Hub, The Monastery Manchester - How about a slightly different meeting room? Workshop your ideas within the confines of a literal monastery - need we say any more?
A meeting room in Manchester can start at £50 for a short rental of a small basic room, and go up to £500 or more for a day at a swish venue with facilities and catering. There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring a meeting room. How many guests are you planning for? What's the neighbourhood for your meeting? Is the venue for an hour, a day or a week? The good news is that you can find a space for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.
There are lots of ways to book a Manchester meeting room. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of meeting rooms are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best meeting venues in Manchester and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
