quick stopover

Booked a quick stopover as flying out early am. Arrived to find no parking spaces available. Advised to drive to sister hotel to park however on arrival no spaces there either! Had to drive back and ' abandon' car 1.5 hrs later. Not the start we wanted to our holiday after a 4hour drive. Also it was not explicit that transfers were extra at time of booking. £6 per adult. Fib Nally requested an early morning call from reception but this did not happen.

Excellent airport hotel

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel, just an inexpensive bed before an early flight, but the hotel was clean, had a decent bar/restaurant, friendly staff and quiet, well equipped rooms. The airport shuttle in the morning was on time and convenient.

Good location for airport

It is close to manchester airport and the shuttle service to and from worked well although the shuttles only run at set times. Hotel could do with a bit of updating but served our purpose of a stop over before our flight.

Cheap but comfortable

Our experience at this hotel was surprisingly good considering how cheap our stay was. Ok, it is not 5 star quality but it certainly was not 5 star price.

Fine

The hotel was nicely situated for what I wanted, the room was fine but a little tired looking. The bed very comfortable. But in the age of wifi no signal in the room. Had to use the draughty lounge The meals were good and straight forward and the staff were professional enough. The person the pat cleans the room vould do with a little more pride in their job. The tv remote did nit work, and it I was a very very old TV set with a video tape player. It worked, but a bit if a puzzler to switch ion. But for a comfy bed for the night it was fine,

Broken hotel!

The hotel looked like it hadn't ben touched since the early 80's, the decor was atrocious. Most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. The pool table was broken, the trouser press was broken, the tv sound was broken...

Good for airport stay

Room was average, but for one night it was fine. The service was very good, we were tired and they brought our food to the room. The food was very good too. overall, perfect for one night
