Premier Inn Manchester Airport (M56/J6) Runger Lane North
Ranked #25 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 31, 2011

We have stayed at both Manchester airport Premier Inn’s and this one has the edge.

Why? the design of the bathroom wins in this one over the same hotel across the car park, the sink that you wash your hands in is actually in the bathroom and not next to the bed so you don’t end up waking the person you are sharing the room with if you go to the loo in the night (you should always wash your hands guys!)

Clean, nice smelling, well ventilated bedroom, comfortable, clean bed and working TV.

The customer service at this hotel was brilliant, with Amy, Hayley and Jonathan looking after us brilliantly, Jonathan is a trainee who has been at the hotel for 3 weeks and was a brilliant waiter, we hope the hotel doesn’t make him into a corporate robot. Manchester people are so friendly.

The restaurant offered a fine choice of meals with the ones we went for being very tasty and the bar had a fantastic Guinness.

A costa coffee shop offers a very fine cup of coffee, we were told that it opened at 7am, but when we left at 7.30 it was shut.

Great hotel, great night sleep, great staff. 10 out of 10 Premier Inn!

We stayed here on our way flying from Manchester. The hotel itself was excellent. Very good value for money and the rooms were very comfy, large beds and very clean.

Our only disappointment was the food at the restaurant. We'd booked a meal deal, so dinner bed and breakfast, and the breakfast was great, but the dinner was appauling! We waited an hour between courses and the food arrived either cold or burnt!

This said the staff were very helpful and more than happy to refund the cost of the food. But I would recommend checking the kitchen is fully staffed before booking the evening meal!

Would definitely book in again, although next time we might look to eat elsewhere.

Thank you for your review following your stay at Premier Inn Manchester Airport (FT)

I am pleased to read that, overall, your stay with us was a good one!

In regards to your comments regarding your less than satisfactory dinner experience, I have passed these on to our Food & Beverage Manager to investigate further as clearly this is not the level of service that we strive to offer. I am pleased that the team compensated you, however the slow service should have clearly never been an issue to start with.

I do hope that you will consider staying (and dining) with us again in the near future to allow us to restore your faith in our Restaurant.

Lloyd Green
Operations Manager

Booked the room 4 months in advance as part of Premier Inn's £29 room sale.

Called the hotel several days in advance to confirm pricing of car park, calls was answered nicely, and accurately.

We arrived late evening on friday 22nd July, the hotel reception was busy, but there were staff available to deal with the check in via the self service check in options. In fact, the receptionist who dealt with us was very good indeed. We had eaten before arrival, which was just as well as the place really was busy at around 9.30pm.

Room was fine, normal Premier Inn standard fare, flat screen TV, comfortable bed. I'm a very light sleeper and was affected by the road noise from the nearby M56 (400 yards away) albeit not to take them up on their "good night guarantee" scheme. No noise from aircraft...given proximity to the airport, this was a big plus too. I like the amount of attention to detail that premier Inns put in, plenty of information available, great Freeview TV selection, well appointed bathrooms, comfortable mattress. Plenty of plu sockets if you're weighted down with electrical gadgets, with Wifi accessiblity (payable charge) if required.

Felt secure given that access to floors was via coded key swipe.

Checked out way too early to take advantage of food. Receptionist from happy and friendly enough, even at 5.15 in the morning. From the hotel to drop off at Terminal 3 is less than 10 minutes so scores very well in terms of accessibility

In all, very impressed and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper, ask for room facing away from M56

One of a matching pair of Premier Inns on the airport (the FT stands for Freight Terminal though the site is no more industrial than any airport.)

Easy to find. Fast friendly greeting slightly spoiled by the new robot check-in machines which were being demonstrated.

Typical Premier Inn room with great king size bed and super mattress.

Restaurant willing and friendly. Quite a choice for a small venue.

Breakfast was typical of the chain.

Car park looked safe and secure. Aiport bus drops off/picks up from the sister hotel across the road which can be a bit off if its raining. Since the journey to the terminal takes about half an hour the extra time to pick up at the door would be negligible.

Liked it - its an excellent budget option for a flight connection. Will return

We stayed there at the start of our holiday and when we returned. Full marks for everything it does as it says on the commercial. Really. The breakfast was fantastic going and coming back. Used the jet2 parking no fuss there so we will definitely use Premier Inn again.

We stayed for two nights and were pleasantly surprised by our visit.

Friendly staff were available to assist us when we has a problem with the electronic check-in and when requesting more towels fir the room, they were always brought promptly upon asking.

We paid for breakfast both days and again this was of a really good standard with plenty of choice, especially if you were hungry like we were!

Parking was also readily available, and although there was a charge for this it was safe and secure.

On the whole, we would stay here again as it was a really good base from which to drive into the city and explore further afield too - thank you premier inn!
