“Relaxing experience...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

While at the end of the Metrolink line, its actually well located as only 15 minutes to city centre. Quay area had nice feel and lots of things to see and do nearby. Close enough, but sufficiently away from it all to afford a a quiet stay.
Room was typical Holiday Inn - nice and roomy, and clean.
The fridge cannot be used for your own drinks etc as it is touch sensitive and charges you if anything is even moved! Mattress suffered from some wear with 'roll-together' in evidence.
We did at one stage have to 'flag down' the housekeeping staff as the room had not been made up by 5pm. They did however recover that quickly.

Lovely hotel with a great view from the 12 th floor. Perfekt if you are wisiting Old Trafford which is in walking distance from the hotel. To minuts from team to Manchester citycenter about 15 minuts. Nice walk salons the canals. Close to mall. Note that you have a Costa coffe and a supermarked just arround the corner (opposit the canal) turn left twice when you leave the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for High floor with a view.

Myself & my partner had booked for a nearby apartment, but due to a leak, we were offered a room here instead with complimentary breakfast.
I have never stayed with holiday inn before, so didn't know what to expect. The hotel, is in a great location and the staff were all very friendly, approachable and professional.
The room, was of excellent standard as were the views.
We really didn't want to leave & have decided to use holiday inn for future visits to Manchester and before flights.
Many thanks for sorting out our accommodation so quickly & efficiently.

We stayed last night with family after attending a wedding at The Lowry Theatre. A lovely, bright and spotlessly clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic views from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedrooms, if you have a head for heights - we were on the 14th floor! Our room was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was well cooked, tasty and plentiful. Would recommend and definitely stay again when attending a function in the area.

Room Tip: Its a good idea to book room only then ask for breakfast vouchers on arrival as this costs much less...

I would just like to say that I have been staying at the Holiday Inn at MediaCityUK now for a few months due to work. And must say it's the most friendliest and helpful hotel I have stayed in for years. You get a very warm and friendly service from the reception desk, friendly and polite service from the bar staff and restaurant staff, and the food is great. They have special offers on food Monday, Wednesday & Friday. It's a must. Very convenient for work and a holiday, as there are lots of things going on in the area. I rate it 5 star. Great Management and Staff.

This hotel's proximity to the BBC studios means that it's very often packed out with BBC executives and presenters. The staff are very friendly and know their regulars by name. The rooms are spacious for a business hotel, and always spotless. Just one word of warning: if you book through a third party site, do check if the rate includes breakfast. It's £15 if you pay on the morning, but only £10 with a voucher bought the previous day. A minor thing, but worth knowing.
