4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is great location if you are visiting Manchester for sake of work because it is in the media city where alot of offices located and also it is near to Manchester city centre. It is very clean with a good service.

This hotel is ideal if you are visiting or working within Mediacity UK.The rooms are spacious and offer a good view of the surrounding studios. The service at the hotel was standard and the bar area is nice for an evening drink. If you need a hotel in Mediacity then this is ideal. The only negative would be that the cleaners didn't today items in my room. Example, put the iron away, move my toiletries from around the sink, clothing item. This made me question the cleaning standards of the hotel and whether certain areas had been cleaned/hoovered. Manchester city centre is a 10- 15 minute taxi journey or can be accessed tram. The nearest stop is minute from the hotel.

Stopped here for one night to be ready for an early appointment. Having paid in full for my room in advance I was surprised to be asked for my credit card on arrival and even more shocked when the receptionist told me that money would be taken from it. I thought the fact that I had paid in advance proved that I am trustworthy. This apart I had an excellent stay in a large and very comfortable room. Breakfast was excellent as was the dinner if a little expensive. All things considered though I would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding hotel in the right location in particular for those attending a Match at Old Trafford or indeed if you want to go someplace Tram outside door almost. Food in Restaurant excellent and staff friendly and very helpful. I'll be back

I stayed here on business and then extended it by a further night for pleasure. A lovely location on the regenerated Salford Quays. Right in Media City, conveniently located for the surrounding bars and restaurants if you don't want to use those facilities at the hotel. That said the restaurant is very good and the bar is comfortable enough without getting crowded. Easy access to the Tram if you want to head further afield but there is plenty nearby for a short stay.

I had a 5 days planned business meeting schedule to hold in Salford, my criteria for hotel selection includes but not limited to: nearness to venue of my meeting; accessibility to basic social amenities; and value for money. Amongst alternatives, l choose Holiday Inn Manchester MediaCity. The overall standard of the hotel and the exceptional service from the staff was second to none. I sure will stay here again.

I suppose after more than 2000 nights in hotels I can be a little picky. I dislike many modern hotels as often bedrooms are a sealed box with no natural air flow and none more so than the Holiday Inn in Media City. Outside temperature is around 3c yet hotel corridors are 24c and my to has now reached 29c. Like many such hotels in the UK the air conditioning only blows the air around which does nothing to cool the room. Indeed this has been my no 1 complaint over the years and it is a shame as most other things at the hotel are satisfactory or good. So another night with little sleep and promises of engineering intervention so I will wait and see and hope.

We drove up from Devon to meet my daughter and husband and brand new grandson who had flown over from San Francisco and wanted to see the football (Man Utd) . I cannot fault our stay in any way, the rooms, food (dinner and breakfast) were all excellent, and all at a very reasonable price . But what makes this hotel is the staff, they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable after having long journeys. I cannot remember all their names (apart from Daniel) but a big "Thank you" to them all for making our stay comfortable. And most of all for playing their part in making my San Francisco family's visit to Manchester memorable If we're up in Manchester again we will definitely use this hotel

We’ve been to this hotel chain many times, they give you a lovely letter, saying if you’ve forgotten anything, just go to reception & they will help you out, but on every occasion we’ve asked for razor, shaving cream & shower cap, on order every time. Went for a meal in the Hotel waited 20 mins. to take our order, a total of 4 customers waiting, with as many staff waiting on, we finally found our you go to the till to give your order. We booked for car parking while we were away with the hotel, we had to print out & fill a form out then send it back, when we arrived at the car parking, they had only my name didn’t know what time we were due or how long we were away! They said Holiday Inn is really bad at giving the information to them before hand, they get a pile now & again.

We stayed here for one night whilst we visited The Lowry theatre. The room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom needs some attention however as the shower leaks onto the floor. The staff were very nice and the breakfast was superb. Well worth staying and wouldn’t hesitate to stay again
