Default Hotel R, Manchester- October 2012 - 22-10-2012, 20:58

Various visits with Gone, Millhouse, NickUK, Asoom, Leaf1471, theflu24, Morse, Jon, Mark and Drhowser

This one had to be a fluke, It was my first time trying this rooftop and Millhouse's 100th attempt. We just struck lucky i guess. Over the week that followed, i visited this rooftop a further three times. It's not the highest in Manchester, but it does offer some nice views of people showering in the neighboring Premier inn. The building was completed in 1972, stands at 184ft and has 15 floors.

It could be one of two to be fair. Anyone who knows Manchester can work it out from the shots.

The cryptic naming isn't to keep it a secret from other urbexers, totally opposite to be honest. I'm just trying to keep it off google for a bit longer whilst more people get to enjoy the views up here .

Yeahhhhhh boys.

Just wat i like to see. Your first to do this i do believe. That elusive shitty locked door..

Might notice a few more opening randomly to soon. With the locks somehow magically still in tact.

Keep it comin. Hit em high hit em low just dont get clocked off the 5-0
