I stayed at this hotel for one night for an event at the nearby Concorde Centre. First impressions were not aided by the ongoing building works, but in truth it was other things in need of a facelift. The checkin staff were painfully slow and unhelpful. To make matters worse it was really hot in the room and no air conditioner. There was a fan but that just circulated warm air! Breakfast was decent, but sadly not good enough to counter the earlier experience.

Clean hotel! Fab shower! Very attentive staff. Decent food in restaurant. Building work going on outside. There’s a bus to the airport which has to be booked in advance. It’s £3 per person. The driver takes card. There isn’t a bus from the airport to hotel, although the bus stop outside airport says bus goes from there, but I think this has been stopped recently. It’s a long enough walk and a taxi is about a tenner.

Stayed at the holiday inn express the night before our holiday. The room was spacious, bed and pillows comfortable, great nights sleep. The room was warm but a large fan was provided. The staff were warm and friendly. Breakfast was lovely, and Lisa at breakfast couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Sat in the garden and enjoyed coffee before setting off to the airport. There were nice touches like deck chairs and the WiFi was excellent.

Our 3rd visit and nothing to complain about. Comfy bed, decent pillows, fluffy towels, great shower and nice breakfast. Shuttle bus was efficient but does not run until 5 pm so had to get taxi from station. Lovely friendly staff. Did not use bar or restaurant, walked to Romper Inn. Room was a little noisy from traffic. If it had been very hot this may have been an issue as no air conditiong and too noisy to open windows. But very good value with breakfast included.

Stayed at the hotel for 1 night stopover with family when using the airport. It was the cheapest price on offer for the weekend, but then an extra £10 for overnight parking. Waited at Manchester Airport shuttle bus stop which was advertising a Holiday inn express shuttle but only found out there was no shuttle bus available to collect from airport when I eventually called the hotel - Apparently they could organise going to to airport but not coming from airport and recommended we get a taxi as cheapest option. Suddenly the £92 overnight charge isn't looking so economic after all... Reception area is currently being refurbished, but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The family room was basic with a larger double bed (maybe Queen?) and a camp bed for the kids to share. Our experience wasn't great, as even though we shut the curtains early afternoon, it was stifling in the room overnight and we needed to use the provided fan, which was noisy. These rooms definitely need some kind of air conditioning. Bathroom & shower was good. Breakfast was fine for a budget hotel buffet bar, probably better than expected.
