Great location, next to some good bars and restaurants, a three minute walk to the shopping - hotel with no frills but clean and staff helpful and polite - breakfast included and there is a bar - holiday inn was the only hotel I found online that you could reserve a accessible (disabled) room direct online so a big thumbs...

A great hotel bang on the edge of the Northern Quarter. Shedloads of amazing pubs, bars & cafe's to choose from all within a 3 minute walk. A compact hotel, immaculately clean and comfy rooms with everything you need. Good breakfast buffet, gets busy but is really well managed with a deceptively big breakfast room and a decent choice to... More

Stayed here with my daughter last night after attending the Arena and as stated above, we couldn't fault it. The hotelwas clean, comfortable and minutes away from the Arena and the City centre. The room was on the 7th floor and had a great view over Manchester. Breakfast was good - hot and with a good choice of food. There... More

Our stay here was most comfortable with the double room being a good size,the bathroom nice and the shower brilliant.To top it off it has a/c you can actually adjust to make the normally warm English rooms cooler,will definately stay at Holiday Inn again on our travels

We stayed here for a long weekend, we were part of a 40th birthday group, I was the first to arrive as I flew here and asked if I could leave my bags in the hotel whilst I walked around Manchester, but to my joy the receptionist said she could check me in early which I very much appreciated as...

Stayed here for two nights while in Manchester for football game. Hotel very central and close to shops and restaurants. Room and facilities were good. Bed was too soft for us but that is personal preference. Agree with previous poster about poor quality of toilet paper! Apart from that we were very happy with the hotel. Breakfast was adequate and... More

Good sized room, spacious shower, bed comfortable and clean. The hotel is very central and short walking distance to the northern quarter bars and arndale shopping centre. Parking isn't onsite but there are car parks nearby at £5 for 24hrs. Breakfast is average, hot food is limited with scrambled egg, sausage, beans and toast, other food is cereal, croissants, and...

I've stayed here twice now with work. It's in such a good location, right in the Northern Quarter so there's loads of bars and restaurants on your doorstep. There is parking close by for £4 for 24 hours if you buy your ticket first from reception. Although it's only 50p more to just anyone. It's still quite new and is... More

In my opinion a hotel that has nothing special to offer. It is ok for 1 or 2 nights and up to that! I could say to the limit to characterize it as overpriced. The room was very small, the facilities very common and in general very basic thing. Not to mention the unacceptable quality of the toilet paper
