“Excellent Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were at Media City for a TV recording. The location of the Holiday Inn could not have been more perfect. The room was large and had a great view, spotlessly clean and super modern bathroom. Lovely and quiet.Though the pillows said hard and soft we found the soft ones a bit hard and uncomfortable. Great breakfast. Would recommend and would go back

Stayed on Saturday for the Robbie concert. Excellent room, lovely staff, great breakfast. Close to the tram and £3 to city centre on tram,£10ish in taxi. Great views of Manchester from rooms upstairs. Right next door to BBC studios. Will definately stay here on next vist and explore the studios and Imperial War Museum.
Well recommended

Stayed here while visiting Manchester for Robbie Williams concert. We were originally transferred here after Holiday Inn express overbooked. Clean and comfortable with everything needed for a short stay. WiFi not brilliant not really an issue for me but maybe if you are on business? Very close to tram stop for transfer into city centre etc. Loads to do in surrounding area TV studios, Old Trafford, Imperial War Museum (well worth a visit and it's free), shopping mall, restaurants and bars.
Breakfast was really good with loads of choice.
A good cheaper option than city centre hotels still within easy reach of the centre of Manchester.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view.

Perfect location for a trip to the Lowry Theatre, but a visitor to MediaCityUK should be forgiven for feeling a bit out on a limb - especially in the evenings. Limited car parking, a long wait for a taxi and limited public transport (near the tram stop) means that this hotel is not so convenient for Manchester city centre.

For the price, I found it an average stay - and for a new build hotel, I'm surprised how much sound is transmitted into the rooms from the central corridors on each floor.

Food is average (some offers on Friday lunches), bar hours short, staff numbers and attitude just about hits the average mark.

Wifi is good - and the desk confortable to work at - but the only radio is via the TV (not so good for a hotel claiming to be "green") no water in the room, and no opening windows.

So clean, fairly comfortable, good sized rooms - some with good views over the MediaCityUK campus, but don't expect the warmest welcomes.

Modern with a friendly welcome, as expected from a new Holiday Inn. The hotel is perfect for Media City (which has its own tram stop or is a 15 minute taxi ride from Piccadilly) and the BBC use this for guests appearing on shows. I ate at the bar - not many veggie options; the veggie curry was pretty good though. The breakfast buffet was reasonable as you would expect. I was impressed by the Salford Quays/Media City area of Manchester which is just a stones throw from the hotel. So if you have to visit this area then this hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: HIgh up for a good view!

This isn't the best location for an evening in the city centre, but it is a pretty good one. Plagued with wanting to stay the same weekend as Robbie Williams, hotel prices soared, and I'm pleased to say this one did not.

While the location means you need a taxi to the city centre (which will set you back £15-£20), it means when you're hungover the next day - you're nice and close to the Trafford Centre for a bit of light shopping! Which was very good for us!!

The service was very good though, my only niggle is that room service were a bit keen, and knocked a few times (four) prior to checkout time.

Room Tip: You don't have to use your room card to power the hotel electricity - just use any plastic (rewa...

Paul P,

Many thanks for the feedback regarding your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Manchester-MediaCityUK. To get the best deals view the Holiday Inn website and best to come when there are no concerts taking place in Manchester.
