We had a flight leaving from Manchester airport at 11-30 in the morning and had thought that we'd travel to the airport on the morning of the flight. Two days before we were due to fly we realised that meant getting up at 4-00am so decided that we'd stay over. We stayed on a Thursday night and finding cheap rooms... More

Wish I'd looked at the reviews before I reserved. It claimed to be a 3 Star hotel - but that's only if the stars go up to 10 or so! Service and staff were pleasant. Bathroom was all tile and clean. Room might have been clean except it's so stained and worn out, it just looks dirty. Ditto for all... More

This hotel is near the airport, but it was cold and shabby with an ugly exterior. The breakfast was of very poor quality. The reception staff were pleasant enough, but that wasn't enough to make me ever go there again.

Please don't ever stay at this Hotel After paying in full up-front and then verbally confirming all OK with head office reservations I arrived at 1-30am after a 5 hour fight to be told that they were over booked and had no room for me. It took 1 hour to sort out and they then sent me to the City... More

Avoid at all costs. Public areas are not clean and bathroom had mold around the tub. Free shuttle was advertised but not available. They do have a shuttle but it is not reliable and there is a cost. Even for one night before a flight, this is not a good choice. There is a Radisson Blu connected to the airport.... More
