3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Decent breakfast, quick transfer to airport, quiet.

Clean comfortable and very friendly staff. The only negative was that when booking we were under the impression that there was a courtesy shuttle to the airport however the was a £3 fee per head minor downside only

The gentlemen that was cleaning rooms had a radio station on his phone up real loud while cleaning the room across the hall; hard to sleep. Overall, stay was nice

Nice room, comfortable beds and luxurious bathroom with huge shower. Great option for early flight.

The hotel was fine although I have found more comfort in cheaper American motels. We were able to book this hotel just a few hours before we needed it. It is close to the airport. The price was steep and there was $30 worth of taxes that I was not expecting. The breakfast was very good.

Will Stay Here Again! This is a very clean hotel with large rooms and great mattresses.

Stayed one night before flying home to the US. Warm, quiet and comfy room - good sleep.

Pros: Close to the airport. Good shower. Free internet. Both hard and soft pillows. Free breakfast. Free parking. Quick booking. LCD TV. Three open plugs to charge phones, computer before departure. Cons: Bed too soft. No top sheet, only a heavy comforter. Room was hot. No take-away soaps, shampoos. Only one chair. Dinner was expensive. Staff did not seem to know where petrol could be purchased for hired car. Almost $30 in extra fees beyond price.

The front desk staff were not helpful at all. Ignore you when you arrive and that "attitude" continued until we left. The rooms are not furnished well. No sheet only duvet and hottest day of the year. No washcloth and no help getting any. No clock in room. Lacks many of the normal hotel amenities.

Hotel is 5 min from airport by car or an easy 30 min walk.. Convenient, free breakfast but you have to pay 3 pounds for the ride to the airport.. Beds are very comfortable and stuff is friendly. Will recommend for layovers.

Convenient to the Airport. Though not clearly stated, they do provide shuttle service for a few to and from the terminal. When I arrived to check-in the machine was having problems and it took a while for someone in the back to assist. Seemed to have lots of goings-on in the back, but not very attentive at the desk. All in all, for a cheap place to crash near the Manchester Airport, it provided what I needed. The room was very spacios. I even had a pull out sofa, but I didn't need it.

Easy access to the airport. I was leaving from Manchester the next morning, so I took the train to this place the night before. It doesn't have a phone or shampoo, but those don't really matter to me when it's £40 cheaper than any other hotel next to the airport. Plus Manchester isn't that big. You could easily make do with this hotel for a couple nights, if need be, and use your saved money on hotel for cab rides to the train or mall.
