This hotel was booked for us by Thomson after they changed our flight from East Midlands to Manchester a few weeks before we were due to travel. We had originally booked a Hilton with Airport Parking at East Midlands, on a Mystery Hotel deal and this was booked for the same price and a similar deal, although it meant we... More

Firstly I am soory your flight was changed resulting in a move from Birmingham to Manchester and thanks for taking the time to write a review. I do not consider that we have any rooms that are tucked away although we are not a purpose built box as many of the more modern hotels are and think of this as... More

I booked a family room through Holiday Extras and the Mercure Bowdon came in at £110 for 2 weeks airport on-site parking and a night in the hotel, so this appeared to be a no-brainer. Alternatives through HE were significantly more expensive, since the Mercure was the only one showing as offering family rooms. This was my fault for not... More

Thank you for taking the time to post this review but feel I should point out a few things for the benifit of future guests considering booking with us in the future. Yes there are steps to the front door but there is also flat access to the hotel at both the front and rear of the building. We also... More

We stayed at the Bowden overnight before an early flight from Manchester in the morning. The stay included parking for 14 nights and a taxi transfer to and from the airport at either end of the holiday. The room was comfortable and well equipped for a 3 star hotel. There are no lifts so when travelling with lots of luggage... More

We stayed here as part of a one night stay with 15 night parking at the hotel and airport transfer package booked via superbreak.

Firstly my apologies if you felt the member of the desk staff was rude but believe this was in no way intentional. Think it was perhaps a case of "lost in translation" through another communication channel you have identified the person as French student who has recently started a placement with us. Perhaps the lesson hear for us is to... More

Stayed overnight as had an early long haul flight.. We were given the Ashley room which was in the basement. Room clean but basic - view from the window was a wall below the car park and was less than a foot from the window, so made the room dark. The alarm was set for 5am but we were kept... More

Regret that you expeienced problems with noise from a boiler, this is generally not a common issue and whilst of little consolation to you now I have asked or engineering contractor to make an early vist to identify and resole the matter Paul Rodgers General Manager More

We stayed at the mercure, before a flight from Manchester airport. The check in was straightforward and we were given our room key by a friendly receptionist. The room was spacious with tea and coffee making facilities and also a hairdryer which was kept out of the way in a draw, which was a good idea. The bathroom was spacious... More

A great list of positive comments and thanks for that. Not great however to learn of your distubed early morning and apologise for this. The room you occupied is not near kitchens or any other hotel facilities so can only imagine the noise to be from other guests possibly leaving to go to the airport. Rooms on our lower ground...

Just what we expected and needed, pretty much like a premier inn travel lodge. Restaurant nice maybe over priced, little seating in bar area had to stand for a while then took our drinks to our room. Got a wake up call so that was a bonus. Easy to get to 10 minutes from airport.
