Stayed here whilst going to a friend's wedding at Didsbury House, as it was considerably cheaper than the venue and Premier Inn was full - now beginning to wish I hadn't! Took about 15-20mins to check in as they couldn't find my reservation, and when I finally received my key it turned out it didn't open the room and I... More

A plea: please don't stay here, even if, and especially if it's the first night of your holiday and you're off to the airport the next day. You will start your holiday in a bad mood. Is it cheap? Yes. And for very good reason. Although grand and boasting features such as a gym and bar and let's not forget... More

We had a standard double room but the space was taken up by an extra single bed so it actually slept 3 and the room was not that big to begin with, the room and beds are old and in need of updating, the bathroom needed a good cleaning and we had a wonderful view of a shed and brickwall... More

My son and I spent one night here as part of a 2 day coach trip. Upon arrival the building looks impressive, but once in our room we were a little disappointed. The staff on Reception were welcoming and directed us to our room, which upon first sight seemed impressive. It was classed as an Executive/Family Room with 2 single... More

This was booked last minute as we were visiting friends. If you want to be close to Manchester then this is ideal. With public transport available very close and runs quite late. On checking in the staff were lovely and polite. The first thing I notice on walking up to our room was a smell of cigarettes. Which is fine... More

We booked an over night stay with airport parking with no problem and they arranged our pick up for the airport for the following day and the return from airport is arranged after you pick up luggage with taxi arriving within about 10 minutes. The rooms was clean and spacious with a nice bathroom. The bar was pleasant to have... More

Stayed for 1 night prior to our early departure from airport. First impressions when you walk in the reception are that it is going to be very plush, however rooms are pretty much standard motel standard. Nothing wrong with them at all for a one or two night stay though. Bar and snack prices are surprisingly low for a hotel,... More

We stayed here on a budget coach holiday for 5 days so wasn't expecting 5 star but our room was ok clean and spacious,dated yes but clean, comfortable and quiet. The grounds are taken up with car parks so nowhere to sit outside unless you smoke. The 'spa' pool area was horrid. But the worst thing of all was the... More

Stayed here for an overnight stay with airport parking in an executive room. Looks nice at first glance but carpet in room is dirty. Sheet is not big enough for the bed. Cobwebs hanging from ceilings and light. Dirty skirting boards. No working bulbs in light. Come on really. The thing that really really let this hotel down is the... More
