I booked to stay here for one night as I had a late flight into Manchester Airport from Turkey and didn't fancy driving back to Leeds after midnight. So I booked This Premier inn (Runger lane North) and drove back to Leeds the following morning.
Hotel was easy enough to find, It's a 2-5min drive from most of Manchester airports car parks. I'd suggest looking on google maps to locate the hotels exact location and then pinpoint the exact location into your sat-nav. As if you just input the hotels postcode into your sat nav it takes you onto the motorway opposite the hotel (but not actually to the hotel) which can be a little frustrating, especially if it's late at night and you can't find the hotel!
I wasn't expecting much as I just wanted a place to crash for the night, However, I was really impressed with this premier inn!
On arrival, I arrived late around 12.30am due to my late flight into Manchester airport, Reception was well lit, with a simple lay out, and nicely decorated. check in was easy at it's self check in kiosk, However the receptionist kindly helped me out too.
Parking at the hotel is £5 for 24hrs payable at the pay station in the car park or just at reception.
Our room was a twin room on the 6th Floor. Our Room (although a twin) had 3 beds (1 double bed, 1 single bed and one sofa bed) I stayed in the double bed which was really good quality. My brother stayed in the normal single bed and said the same about his bed, good quality and comfortable.
The room was simple layout, but really nice, clean and comfortable. Really could not fault it!
Room also had tea and coffee making facilities, TV, A Clean bathroom with bath/shower with soap and shower gel dispensers. The soaps and shower gels provided actually smelled really good, which impressed me as most hotel soap and shower gels don't smell too great!
We also had a good view over Manchester airport as our room was on the airport side of the hotel but experienced no plane noise at night and slept really well (I'm guessing the hotels sound proof). The Room also offered 30mins free WI-FI (if you need anymore you need to pay)
We also had the premier inn breakfast the following morning before heading back to Leeds, The breakfast was a buffet and was fantastic quality. We had the traditional full English breakfast, Sausage, eggs, bacon etc (just help yourself). Croissants and cereals were available.
Drinks at breakfast included tea, coffee, water, orange juice. The orange juice was really good quality too (Not watered down like some)
The hotel also had a bar and restaurant (open in evening)
Only one minor problem on arrival, Our key card didn't work in the corridor entry door (just after exiting the lift) so we had to go back down to reception, however this was sorted quickly (Apparently the self check in kiosk hadn't activated our key cards correctly or something when dispensing them)
I Was really glad I booked into this hotel for the night, Never stayed with Premier inn before but certainly would do again. There rooms are Ideal for short stays. Also premier inn are a lot nicer than Travelodge, don't mistake them for the same thing as Premier inn's are much more upmarket.
Would certainly recommend this premier inn to anybody who has an early flight from Manchester airport or late flight back home and doesn't want to drive home during the early hours.
Paid around £85 (+£5 parking charge upon arrival) for one night, 2 adults with breakfast and booked roughly a month in advance via Premier inn website.
They are two premier inn's located right next to each other at Manchester airport, this is a review of Premier inn Runger lane north (Not Runger lane south which is located opposite)
