Check-in was very quick and easy, the staff on reception were very friendly. We booked a double and twin room for a long weekend visit for football in. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious with plenty of plug sockets and a very easy to work air conditioning control. The rooms were on a higher floor and were mostly very... More

So far, I tried to bargain hunt for cheaper hotels room. I was lucky 2 weeks ago. Some people complained it was a bad experience for paying £125 per night, but I got this hotel £115 for 2 nights so I am not complaining. I believe one should not expect better or 4 seasons standard. It was reasonable for what... More

Pleasant hotel with pleasing decor and nice clean rooms with everything we needed. It's only about 10 minutes brisk walk to The Lowry making it well placed for all the events around there. The only thing we were disappointed about was there was no bath, despite the description on the website clearly claiming 'En suite bathroom with power shower' We... More

Design and interior looks like something from the 80's. American business style hotel at its worst. Impersonal and service bad: key cards not Working. Reception staff seemed not surprised as half of the guest after check in had to return to get new keys, the rooms for disabled might be bigger than standard ones but feel empty and not cosy... More

It was a weekend trip with my son and wife to watch Manchester United match and the city. The hotel is ideally located not very far from the airport (please avoid a black cab that charged me GBP 37 for the trip to the hotel), 400 m nice walk to the tram stop, 2 stops and walk to Old Trafford...

This hotel is ideally situated both for Manchester City Centre and the roads to other towns. It is on the quayside and this area has been modernised as a trendy place to be now. It is modern with well kept rooms (do remember to take the "do not disturb" sign down or the room does not get serviced.) Good Breakfast... More

I had booked into Holiday Inn, Media City but ignored the sat nav as I saw the back of the hotel across the water, after arriving and the chap in reception looking for my booking he asked is it Holiday Inn or Express?
