We stayed here overnight before our flight from Manchester. We arrived early early evening and left at 5.30am.
Location: easy to find and quick transfer to/from airport.
Room: spacious for the three of us (kid was impressed she had a double to herself), Bed had different pillow weights and you could ask for different if you wanted them. Basic amenities, tea, coffee, etc. clean, spacious, bathroom good condition. We were at the back on the first floor and had no problems with noise, etc., even though there were a good few families there at the same time as us.
Amenities: Glad we ate before we went as the prices were way too high on the menu we looked at - and not a huge variety of choice, but enough for pretty much everyone to be able to find something they like/want. We had a couple of drinks at the bar but £10 for one pint, one spirit with mixer and one coke for the kid was enough to convince us it was overpriced in the bar as well. Unfortunately there's nowhere close you could walk to for a cheaper/drink meal. If you're stopping for a morning flight I suggest eat before you go and take something to drink (whether that's soft drinks or alcohol) for consumption in the room. No wifi available (except for a (very high) price) - not really acceptable these days for somewhere that would be expected to have business guests as well. Overall I'd be comfortable to go back if flying from Manchester again, and as I know what to expect on costs so will fill up before going.
Transfers: from the hotel it's every half hour in the appropriate taxi/minibus so make sure you set your alarm(s)/book your alarm call! Coming back you are given a number to call, the service was good but you come out of the building and phone expecting them to pick you up from there, but the pick up is from the departures area which is a floor above (strangely they have a two-tier drive-in system) - there's usually plenty of time to get back inside, get to the lift area and go up and out to the pick up area for the taxi/minibus back to the hotel. Once back at the hotel you get the car park barrier codes from reception and can get in your car to go home - easy.
