Midland Hotel Lancashire

“Fabulous Art Deco classic seaside hotel brought back from the dead and transmogrofied into a chic, sleek, ocean liner of a hotel. Sweeping seaviews, stunning suites and a spa. Plus Morecombe to explore.”

“Overlooking the grey-blue mud of vast Morecambe Bay, with the Lake District fells in the background, the Midland Hotel – built in 1933 – is a fine example of Art Deco architecture. Overcoming a dilapidated past, the hotel has been brought back to much of its former glory; the Grade 1 listed circular staircase has been restored, as have many of the original decorations and sculptures, including work by Eric Gill and Marion Dorn. Despite its size, there are just 44 rooms (sea-view ones are recommended) including some third-floor suites which are well worth the extra cost. There’s also a spa and a stylish restaurant, but although the food may not be the hotel’s strong point,, don’t let that put you off a stay in this iconic English resort hotel.”

They say

“Meet the Midland, curving gracefully along the North West coast. Sleek, unique, it isn’t just any hotel. It’s a hotel with history, a hotel with a past, an internationally renowned Art-Deco classic. Today, Morecambe’s modernist masterpiece has regained its rightful place as the crowning glory of the North West coast. Now lovingly restored and taken right into the 21st Century, it’s a modern day masterpiece, inside and out. Seaside chic is back in style.
Everything that had made The Midland so special in its glamorous heyday has been restored and reinvented for a new generation with 44 all-new boutique-style rooms.”
