Reviewed October 27, 2013

I normally stay at the Premier Inn right opposite but it was full. This is my first stay at Runger Lane South. Checked in online - what a waste of time. Still had to queue and answer all the normal questions. Mentioned this to the receptionist who just ignored my comments - next time I will try somewhere else even if it's further away from the airport.

Must say though nothing wrong with the rooms apart from very thin walls and the motorway right outside

Room Tip: Thin walls and beside the motorway !

- good service, exceed my expectation. Had a comfortable stay
- very near the airport but 30mins frm city, good for early flight.
, upon arrival frm airport u can get a cheaper taxi from arrow cars(inside airport) with fixed rate despite the time of arrival.
- love the shower, they have different pillows for you to choose, tv provided.
- good night sleep guarantee policy allows u to refund if u did not have a good sleep

I stayed here on business because of the location of the hotel to the conference venue. Its external appearance doesn't do it justice when you compare it to the more recently built Premier Inns on the same site, so don't let that put you off. The hotel appears to have undergone some recent refurbishment with new carpets. The room I had was massive - it had two double beds and loads of space for general walking around! The sink is separate to the toilet/shower room which I quite like - gives you more space compared to other hotels where everything is crammed into the bathroom. Shower was big. Staff were excellent and helpful, both at the desk and in the restaurant where I ate that night (food wasn't the best I've ever had, but there was a good selection). Overall, the hotel is great value for money.

Stayed here the night before flying from Manchester airport and i have absolutely no complaints. The guy on reception was super helpful, booked our shuttle for us, asked if we wanted dinner in the restaurant and told us about the money back guarantee.

The room was very clean, spacious, and most importantly before an early flight - quiet!

We ate in the hotel's restaurant and the food came quickly and was absolutely fine and was inexpensive. There was also plenty of choice on the menu.

The shuttle service the next morning was very efficient - £3 per person and it's direct to the terminals.

i would definitley stay here again - even if we had a decent time flight the next day, it was a great, relaxing way to start the holiday.

Stayed on 15th October 2013 with our two kids after driving from Heathrow. We have stayed as this hotel on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The great thing about this hotel is that you now what to expect and the standard of service is always high. Check in , staff, quality of sleep, cleanliness of hotel and breakfast was once again superb. Great value for money.

I find it odd that there are no telephones in any of the rooms. Apparently company policy? If you had a request you can go back to reception or make a call on your mobile to a central telephone number. What happens in an emergency? Problems with the food. Steak and Ale pie was small and stone cold in the middle. After bringing a new hot one it came without the accompanying side dish. Ok they knocked it off the bill and gave us a free drink but got the impression that it happens all the time from looking at other comments. The excuse that it is a new chef doesn't wash. Expected a bath to be in the bathroom but only a shower. They are all on the North side.
