Midland hotel

1991: Guests wave newlyweds Mike and Jackie Baldwin off on their honeymoon

The Midland Hotel is a four-star hotel located in Peter Street, Manchester. Over the years, it has served the needs of some of Weatherfield's more prosperous visitors.

In August 1972, Nellie Harvey picked up Ethne Willoughby, National President of the Licenced Victuallers Association, from the Midland to take her to meet Annie Walker at the Rovers Return, when she arrived in the city from Buckinghamshire. Two years later, Norma Ford stayed at the Midland along with her sugar daddy Sidney Wilson while in town for Maggie Clegg and Ron Cooke's wedding.

Entrepreneur Robert Prescott was a guest at the Midland in November 1989 while visiting his sister Dawn. Dawn and her partner Mike Baldwin had dinner with Robert in the Midland's restaurant. Mike returned to the venue in July 1991 when its function room hosted his and Jackie Ingram's wedding reception. The event ran smoothly despite a last-minute panic that room booked was too small for the number of guests attending.

In February 1996, Kbec representatives Stephen Reid and Carrie Meyer based themselves at the Midland when they arrived from Canada with the aim of scouting out local manufacturing firms. The pair held a presentation in the hotel's conference room, at which the catering was provided by Alma Baldwin who had previously been interviewed by Carrie in the hotel's room 255, where Stephen was staying. Alma subsequently made a clumsy pass at Stephen when he let her use his room to shower.
