“excellent for a night before your flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I didn't have high expectations for a room at this price, but was very pleasantly surprised. Very efficient and friendly check-in, spacious room with two double beds and space for another single bed, extremely comfortable mattresses and pillows - a good night's sleep all round. Powerful shower in the morning

All in all, one of the best airport hotels we've stayed in - knocks spots off the premier inn Ramada Jarvis and even the Radisson, which we stayed in last time we flew out of Manchester Airport.

Will definitely stay here again if we fly from Manchester.

Was very impressed with this premier inn ,reception staff welcoming even though they were so cold as the desk is right near the enterance door and was frosty and icy wind blowing in but still she was smiling and friendly .room was spotless and ideal for a nights sleep before a early morning flight. We booked the meal deal, two course evening meal and full breakfast and was extremely impressed . We were actually going to rome and during our stay in rome my husband actually stated that the best meal he had was actually the steak we had and the breakfast in the premier inn . Now that's a compliment . The staff were lovely I think the lad was Jonathan who took our evening meal order and was back waiting on at breakfast and still smiling and chatty. We are flying to New York in a weeks time and have booked this hotel again before our flight . Highly reccomended.

This is one of the best Premier Inns I have stayed in. Friendly staff, great hotel parking deal for our short stay over. Usual Premier Inn quality in terms of the rooms and beds etc.

Only bad point is the restaurant at breakfast. I opted to only have the grab and go breakfast, It is advertised as Costa coffee, which you would assume to be fresh coffee, however it is not, it is Kenco, instant coffee, long life milk cartons and the limpest croissant I have ever had the misfortune to taste. Not good. Also the long life milk cartons were out of date, and to the rude waiter, yes they do go out of date, look on the bottom of the tear off lid for the date.

not a bad hotel but thought the lounge area could have been cleared of crockery etc on a more regular basis. Also wasn't keen on the small black flies that appeared from the heating vent! Having said that, the location of the hotel was excellent as only a short drive away from the airport.

Used this hotel before flying to Cyprus for Christmas, left the car in the carpark, which is then collected by another company and stored for the duration of your holiday. It will be waiting for you on you return at the Premier Inn that is opposite this one (just across the carpark). If you want to avoid paying £5 for the overnight parking, pay at reception, this is reduced to £2.50. It does actually tell you that on the parking meter if you bother to read it.

Took adantage of the evening meal/breakfast deal. Three course meal + full english was about £45 for both of us. Breakfast was a huge let down for us though, states that breakfast starts at 5.30, we arrived at 5.45 (taxi booked for 6.30) - only cereal and fruit laid out, no cooked element. Finally found a staff member at 06.10 who invited us to take breakfast at the opposite hotel where it WAS been served - WTF?? Had to skip the cooked breakfast and have cereal and muffins, got some money refunded after being pretty insistant. Later arrivals for breakfast are probably OK, as we saw just one guy preparing breakfast one item at a time and placing them in bain marie dishes. Evening meal was pretty good though and we dont usually experiance any negatives when staying with Premier Inn, which we use quite often for city breaks or airport stays.

If looking for an airport transfer, use the taxi that reception books, they are cheaper and very efficient. When we arrived back at T2 we priced a taxi at the office as you exit arrivals - £15 for a five minute transfer! ok, it was boxing day, but I rang the firm that bought us - £9 (just £3 more than dropping us off, which is fair, time and a half and all that). They text you with a message how long your car will be and where to wait. Another text arrives to confirm your car is now approaching the stand - I even recieved a third wishing me merry christmas..

Premier Inn is my first choice for airport and city stays - enough said!

Room Tip: Choose this hotel over the South (across the carpark). I noticed that the furniture was threadbare a...

were to begin..... stayed here before my holiday and again after our return, the parking fee is great for price considering the cost of airport parking fees, the reception was smooth and without any issues with a receptionist that was very assertive and helpful Well done caroline, then our room was perfect, good size, and spotless, and as for the food....... the chef (called damian) brought our food to the table him self for us with the waitress (Carolina) so that it would not get cold before we ate and that there were seven of us and she could not carry them all at once, when we praised him for the steak's that had been cooked to perfetion, he told us that they were down to the grill chef (calumn), if these guys are in the kitchen then I will be calling again.......... Left a £10 tip for the chefs and the same for the waitress, hope it went to the right people......... and not to the company.......

Though on a down side we had breakfast and found that it was luke warm at best and when I spoke to the chef who was checking the temps (or something) he was rude and told me to eat somewere else if i wanted a good breakfast.... he was called Josh I think (no name badge but the waiters (sean & Anne) told me and they to were fanbloodytastic........ uuuummmmmmmm. supose you have to take the good with the bad........
