The hotel layout was very unusual and it was very difficult to find anything. The room door was extremely heavy and there was no door closing hardware,..meaning you could lose an arm in the door if you weren't careful!
I needed an electrical plug
U.S. to U.K., they charge 10 pounds for a $4 converter. Whatever the market will bear attitude.
This hotel was great for staying close to the airport. I called thehotel from the airport phone and was picked up quickly. The hotel is average looking but the room was clean, large and comfortable. the cost was reasonable.
Hotel was close to airport and they did provide shuttle service. The hotel was "worn" for use of a better term and could use some sprucing up. Our mattress on the bed was very worn and you could feel the springs every time you moved. Rooms were
clean but very noisy. We could hear the noise from the rail station and airport. Rooms had paper thin walls and we could hear the guests conversation who were staying in the room next door. We could also hear banging of room doors down the hall all night. Not very quiet!
We arrived into Manchester Airport (Terminal 2) extremely late and tired (almost midnight), but were picked up very quickly in the courtesy bus (airport staff advised us that it would have been a VERY long walk to the hotel from Terminal 2, and I
would agree with them, once I saw the layout of the airport). We phoned from the courtesy phone in the Arrivals Hall, and the bus was there within 10 minutes.
All the staff were extremely courteous and professional; the check-in guy (who received our phone call requesting the courtesy bus) had our paperwork ready by the time we walked through the door!
The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was lovely and comfortable. The bathroom was modern and clean.
Full Irish breakfast available at additional cost of £9.95 pp, or continental (more than enough for me) at £5.95. Both were good, and service was with a smile.
Perfect for the price.
This is second time we stayed at this hotel. Very noisy. First time we were here we were near an elevator. This second time we stayed here and the train station was under construction. The noise was so loud. I think we may find another quieter
hotel somewhere else. The location was perfect if the noise doesn't bother you. Maybe if you don't require sleep!
