We needed an overnight stay in MediaCity as our son was taking part in a TV show, so decided to book the Holiday Inn because of its practical location and the reasonable rate offered, even at short notice. Not only is the location excellent, we were delighted with the warm welcome and the stylish, comfortable rooms. We were on floor... More

This hotel is a perfect bolthole for a weekend in Manchester. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. There is a met stop 5 minutes walk from the hotel or a taxi into the city is approximately £10. It is worth a walk around Media City which has a couple of bars and restaurants... More

The hotel is what you would expect of it, clean, functional with great views over Manchester. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful in every case. The room was large and spotlessly clean. Located a minutes walk from the metro link station. I recommend this hotel.

Stayed over a weekend while visiting family. Chose the hotel based on the best compromise between price and comfort and was not disappointed.

Everything about my stay was efficient and comfortable, and I would particularly like to mention the friendliness of the staff. Breakfast was also better than you might expect, clearly taken seriously by the hotel management. The location is the best thing though, being right in MediaCity, surrounded by interesting architecture on the river and lots of creative energy.

My friend and I stayed for 1 night, and only wished we were staying for longer! We arrived to a very warm welcome from the reception staff.

Stayed here for two nights on business. After checking in I had to take my car round the block to the multi storey car park then trudge back to the hotel in the cold and rain so be aware that you'll be in for a walk. On a positive note you do get to see the back of the Coronation... More

We stayed here for one night visiting relatives in Stretford. Clean room, very quiet even though a Sat night and handy location for us. We didn't have breakfast as at £12 each it sounded overpriced for the area and the car park at £8 was a bit steep too. I wouldn't recommend staying out here if you want a night... More
