“good to place to stay just outside city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

booked this hotel as was attending a concert at the Apollo and was really satisfied with stay. The location is just outside the city centre easily accessed by buses which run every few minutes just outside the hotel. There are plenty of small shops and bars in the area and a Tesco 24hour store. The hotel is clean and the service is excellent. We had a peaceful nights sleep in a clean comfortable bed. This is not the Hilton so dont expect luxury but it is clean comfortable and offers a really good selection for breakfast included in price.

Room Tip: rooms are fairly roomy but bathrooms tiny................no bath just showers

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express - modern, clean and functional. Room comfortable with all the facilities of budget hotel - the lack of a bath wasn't an issue for us but those who prefer a bath to a shower will be disappointed. Not an extensive range of food at breakfast but the buffet was kept well-stocked. Normally the hotel like this would justify at least a "good" rating but our first night was ruined by drunken youths on a stag night yelling, swearing and banging doors from 2am to 4am. With thin walls and doors there was no escaping the noise, making sleep impossible. The staff seemed happy to tolerate this behaviour but other Trip Advisor reviews confirm this is a common problem in this hotel and frankly the more responsible guests deserve better.

Booked here to stay for an event in Manchester. Very comfortable room, well equipped. Only downside was the drunken female morons screeching and laughing in the corridor at 4am but hardly the fault of the hotel.

Unexpectedly good breakfast, only marred by having to "endure" Sky TV whilst eating - the screching crowd probably appreciated it, though !

Would definitely stay again, very good value indeed

Holiday inn express always meets a certain standard and this is no different. Clean, friendly, welcoming and a fantastic breakfast. Definitely stay here for a cheap break. Great cheap pub next door also!

Hi and thanks for your feedback about the hotel. I would just like to point out that all of mattresses in the hotel where replaced less than 1 year ago. So I am sorry that you thought that the beds where too soft.

The Bandstand Pub has no connection to the hotel and we do not promote this establishment. Please note that next time you stay with us that we offer a full dinner menu in the hotel and we have a full bar also.

Hope to see you again soon.

We stayed for one night to attend a concert at the MEN arena. Return bus fare to Manchester was £8.60 for two adults. Hotel room very clean and childrens beds made up ready, which we have never experienced in years of staying at Travelodges and Premier Inns, although I had E-Mailed ahead to say they wouldn't now be coming with us. Double bed not very comfortable but plenty of pillows supplied. Hotel staff polite and helpful.Breakfast was better than usual, with plenty of choice and plenty of seating. Not sure why young ladies think it is ok to turn up in their pyjamas! Pub next door, the Bandstand, does good food at a reasonable price. There is also a McDonalds close by. Overall, a very pleasant short stay which did the job.
