Wasn't expecting much but the hotel was brilliant. I arrived and I had made my booking for the wrong date, but Helen sorted it out and saved me from disaster. The hotel was clean, the food fantastic and the staff were friendly and efficient. I would recommend this hotel to anyone heading into Manchester.

Great hotel: friendly and efficient staff, clean, comfortable, huge well thought out rooms with everything you could possibly need. We stayed two nights to run the Manchester marathon and it was the perfect location. Staying here helped us relax both before and after the event and we both came away with new PBs for the marathon! It was great having... More

We love Salford Quays and especially The Lowry Theatre. The Holiday Inn Media City is a nice hotel. The rooms are great, clean and comfortable. Great views from most rooms, either over the Quays or the city. We live in the country so views over the city are a novelty for us! Parking is in a multi story but you... More

Not a bad hotel at all! The staff were really helpful - couldn't do enough to help! The room was fantastic, beautiful views over the surrounding area, clean and pretty darn cool. Heaps of restaurants and a great bar serving craft beers on your doorstep too, I'd definitely use this place again!

This hotel is ideally situated for the great facilities at MCUK in Salford Quays. The in house restaurant is great as is the room service.

Stayed here as I was visiting local studios for a business meeting. The hotel is fairly easy to find with an up to date sat nav and parking was pretty easy on the pay and display opposite the hotel. The car park charges are £8.50 for 12 hours although they do not appear to have changed the clock and I... More

Great hotel in a great location with great staff. Free wifi and food from the room service menu was the best I had ever had, quality food and good value. Fantastic supermarket next door and lots of parking adjacent to hotel. Tram to the centre of Manchester about a three minute walk. Highly recommended.
