“Good functional no frills hotel”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

This must be about the 15th time I've stayed here and it has always been fine.

This would be my default choice in Manchester if i don't need need to be in the city center. The price is always very good, particularly when compared to other Holiday Inns and HIE in the city. Normally the rate is somewhere between £45 and £55 which makes it cheaper than Travelodge or Premier Inn equivalents and at for that you also get breakfast thrown in and there is a bar on site to use.

over the past year or so they have also started serving food in the evening. Not a huge choice but reasonably priced, however i have never eaten there yet. There is a pub next door, not sure what it is but have also never used that as it looks like a standard 2 for 1 style pub. I always have a delivery dominoes when I stay here and eat in my room which the hotel have no problem with you doing and will even give you various menu options if you ask (even though they are now doing their own food). Not much choice of other restaurants in the area and certainly nothing to walk to.

If you like cycling and have time after your day at work then bring your bike. There is a track at the rear of the hotel which goes all the way to media city and I have made a big circuit of Manchester a few times whilst staying here. Nice way to spend a couple of hours before dinner.

Staff are very friendly and check in and out efficient. The only think I would say is that some of the rooms (carpets more than anything0 are now looking a bit worse for wear and could do with replacing.

Hi,

This is great feedback about the hotel and good to hear that we are getting it right at Manchester East.

I take your point about some of the carpets which are scheduled in a refurbishment plan for later this year ans 2013.

Kind Regards

Stayed here for two nights as my husband and i were going to see coldplay.
The hotel itself is just like a travelodge.our room was down ata corner on the ground floor looking onto the car park,it was an ok room but was designed for a disabled person,it was pretty quiet though which was good.
Breakfast,cereal,yoghurts,but not to much hot food.You only got scrambled egg,sausage and beans which wasn't the greatest so didn't bother on the morning we were leaving.
The bar is fairly pricey too,even for soft drinks as the drinks machine and ice machine were both out of order.
Next door to hotel is a nice bar/restaurant called the bandstand where all main meals are two for one,result,but closes at 10pm.
All in all not a bad stay,quite good value for money.

booked this hotel as was attending a concert at the Apollo and was really satisfied with stay. The location is just outside the city centre easily accessed by buses which run every few minutes just outside the hotel. There are plenty of small shops and bars in the area and a Tesco 24hour store. The hotel is clean and the service is excellent. We had a peaceful nights sleep in a clean comfortable bed. This is not the Hilton so dont expect luxury but it is clean comfortable and offers a really good selection for breakfast included in price.

Room Tip: rooms are fairly roomy but bathrooms tiny................no bath just showers

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express - modern, clean and functional. Room comfortable with all the facilities of budget hotel - the lack of a bath wasn't an issue for us but those who prefer a bath to a shower will be disappointed. Not an extensive range of food at breakfast but the buffet was kept well-stocked. Normally the hotel like this would justify at least a "good" rating but our first night was ruined by drunken youths on a stag night yelling, swearing and banging doors from 2am to 4am. With thin walls and doors there was no escaping the noise, making sleep impossible. The staff seemed happy to tolerate this behaviour but other Trip Advisor reviews confirm this is a common problem in this hotel and frankly the more responsible guests deserve better.

Booked here to stay for an event in Manchester. Very comfortable room, well equipped. Only downside was the drunken female morons screeching and laughing in the corridor at 4am but hardly the fault of the hotel.

Unexpectedly good breakfast, only marred by having to "endure" Sky TV whilst eating - the screching crowd probably appreciated it, though !

Would definitely stay again, very good value indeed
