4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having stayed there before, I was looking forward to another enjoyable stay. I wasn't disappointed. Bed & Breakfast with only a few minutes walk from Old Trafford. It is also right next to a tram stop. Staff were very helpful keeping luggage until checkin and again looking after them until it was time to leave Manchester. Would defiantly recommend it... More

This is my 3rd or 4th time staying in this Holiday Inn Express and I love it. Salford Quays is such a cool, fantastic location and only a few minutes tram ride from the City Centre. I was in Manchester to visit my son for a couple of days and I've stayed in the Travelodge just across the street before... More

We find this hotel is great for when we go to gigs at Manchester arena, short ride on the tram, plenty of parking and a not bad breakfast. Staff are always very helpful and friendly. Clean rooms and free WiFi. Shopping and cinema over the road and The Lowry is just minutes away.

This was the second occasion on which we have stayed at Holiday Inn Express, Salford and we were equally happy on this visit. The hotel is in an excellent location, has plenty of car parking spaces and there is a tram stop a short walk away. We did not have a refurbished room but the room we were allocated (on... More

I have high expectations of this hotel, which is probably why I continue to criticise it. They have started the much needed refurbishment, but it appears to be a long and slow process. I am pleased to say the manner of the staff at breakfast has improved and they all seemed friendly and helpful which is a vast improvement. Both... More

Yet another Holiday Inn Express visit that surpassed expectations. Great location with ample parking (only £3) - near to the Lowry Outlet and Theatre, War Museum, Quays etc.. will definitely return. Lovely rooms although I much prefer the option of converting the sofa myself. As a family the extra space is beneficial as it's hard to get around once the... More

We visited Manchester to do Coronation Street The Tour, and chose this hotel mainly because of the size of it's car park. There are countless hotels in the area but very few have more than a handful of parking spaces, if any. We have visited several Holiday Inn Express hotels and are always impressed by them, this one did not... More

Dear BobClaireRebecca, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are lucky that our hotel is situated on the waterfront in the heart of Salford Quays, with lovely views across the water. The nearest tram stop is just a stone’s throw away; this takes you into the city centre in a matter of minutes. I hope you enjoyed the Coronation Street... More
