Kennetts Hotel, Bristol Street

Kennetts Hotel, Bristol Street, Hulme. (c) Bob Potts [1].

The Kennetts Hotel opened in 1867 on the corner of Warwick Street and Bristol Street, firstly a Kays Atlas house which then passed to Wilsons [2], as pictured above.  In the 1950s the landlord of the Kennetts, Ted Hays, had pictures up of artistes who performed at the Hulme Hippodrome.  The Kennetts Hotel closed in 1966 under the Scottish Brewers company [1].  A small length of Warwick Street still runs through southern Hulme today, which is roughly where Bristol Street and the Kennetts Hotel was.

  1. Ted Hayes was my husbands grandfather. His mother Colette is still alive and kicking and lives in Altrincham. Ted and Lee (his wife) went on to The Pineapple in Eccles then the Axe and Cleaver in Dunham Massey which they left in 1972 when Ted died.
