The interiors are decorated in a refined classical style in a calm color scheme as if continuing the noble line of this modern manor.

In the 21st century, ancient castles ceased to be gloomy and frightening. For example, they often host hotels. Oddfellows On The Park is located not far from Manchester. This mansion has a very rich history that began in 1861: first it was a private residence, during the war years – a town hall, then a horse school and even a movie studio. And now it’s a luxury five-star hotel. The facade, doors, arched vaults and vintage floors remind us of the rich past, but the interiors in general are modern and bright. The hotel offers beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and capsule coffee machines, free bicycles, a restaurant with a luxurious selection of collection wines. It is easy to feel like a royal person here!
