A hotel situated by the Manchester Ship Canal and associated docks in an area that has been comprehensively renovated. Within minutes from Media City, Old Trafford, The Lowery Theatre complex and a number of family orientated bars and of course the canal/docks. A short walk from the nearest Manchester Tram stop so easy and inexpensive to get into the city... More

This is a great place to stay, ideal for the city centre without paying city centre prices. Easy to travel by tram, easy to get to although i cannot understand the need to charge for parking! Rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. Staff eager to help and a good breakfast - what more do you want?

So I have problems with my feet and asked for a room with an accessible bathroom. I didn't get just that - I got a whole accessible room. I thought about someone in a wheelchair using this room and they had thought of everything - even the peephole in the door was at the eye level of someone who would... More

Visited 12th/13th june. The care and overnight stay of the hotel was very comfortable and welcoming. Pity about the food! We drove up casually from Derby and booked in just after 7 pm. Being elderly we were too tired to dine s o ordered food in the bar. A large photo of March's stared at our seat so we felt... More

Close to Media City, The Lowry Shopping Centre and Theatre, with an easy tram ride into central Manchester and its historic busy heart. The breakfast is buffet style and plentiful whilst there are numerous resteraunts and food locations close to the hotel itself. The staff... More

Needs to stop over for the night and this was in the right place, in the middle of the quays area. Able to enjoy a drink outside in the sunshine overlooking the waterfront. Probably a notch up on other Holiday Inn Express hotels I have visited. Breakfast very good
