“ideal for overnight stay for airport”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stayed here again the night before our early flight to Luxor.
We had stayed here before so knew what to expect about parking etc.
The hotel is a typical airport hotel, very comfortable, clean with helpful staff and a courtesy bus for the terminals, but be warned, this has to be booked.
Check in was swift and efficient. We didn't eat in the hotel but had a drink in one of the bars. Typical hotel prices.
The room was very comfortable, tea and coffee making facilities, TV, free wifi, good bathroom and warm.
We booked a park/stay deal and the car was whisked off somewhere but was all ready when we returned.
We would have no hesitatation in using the Bewley again.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable and quiet

There seems to be a massive variation in opinions for this hotel. This was our experience:
Positive: Convenient location. Simple parking arrangements - slight wait for pick up from terminal on return but otherwise no problems.
Negative: Room had terrible smell of smoke - requested reception to fumigate whislt we were at dinner but no difference on return.
Food and Drink - expensive and below average quality. Cheapest bottle of wine £18+ for poor quality 'plonk'. Absolutely no need for this overpricing.
Would we return? No
Would we recommend? No

Dear Reviewer, thank you for your comments. I am pleased that you found the location and parking arrangements met your expectations. The hotel has recently become a non-smoking hotel and we will be fully re-furbishing the old smoking rooms. Should you choose to return I am sure you would find the new Bar and Restaurant menu and choice of wines will suit your palette and pocket.

This is the first time that we have stayed at Bewley's. We often fly from Manchester Airport but, on this occasion, we had an early morning flight, so it made sense to stay at the airport on the previous night.

Considering how close the hotel is to the Terminals, plus the large car park just outside our bedroom, the hotel was remarkably quiet - so we had a good night's sleep. Room was comfortable with two double beds, and free WiFi was available. We didn't eat at the hotel, as we arrived late and left early. Check-in was slightly lengthy, as a lot of people seemed to arrive at the same time - but the staff dealt with the queues well.

We were fully intending to walk to Terminal 1, as I estimated that it would only take us 10 minutes. The helpful Receptionist suggested that we took the shuttle bus, as there were some road works and the pavement had been temporarily removed. We were pleased that we had taken her advice, as the shuttle bus was frequent and very efficient.

We shall be using this hotel again!

Long wait in reception

Rude ignorant staff

Gruesome food

15 day free parking rip off. If you are away for 15 days you have to pay another 8 pounds.
'Fill these forms in here here here here aaaand here, not there! Take that form there, leave this in your car which you have now to take here and that's your copy and bring this back to us and put this form in that bag with the car key and hang this up in your car then walk back to reception in the rain.'

Dirty smelly room with 80's TV in it
.
Luggage THROWN about by wide boy shuttle drivers.

Loads of, previously unmentioned, terms and conditions to sign once you are there and ultra vulnerable. i.e, they are not responsible for your car, they will charge you £20 to jump it or put petrol in or anything really.

Unsavoury place, not one good thing about it.

Room Tip: ANY of the other hotels

Dear Reviewer thank you for taking the time to place your review on Tripadvisor I am sorry to see that you are upset with the procedure we have in place to ensure we take the greatest care of one of your most valued possessions. The terms and conditions and charges are clear on our booking website and they are they to protect you as well us ourselves. I will be sharing your comments with the drivers but am unsure if any of them fit the description of “wide boy” but again I do thank you for your feedback.

Thie is the first time we have booked an airport hotel prior to an early start ski holiday. The reception was good and the staff friendly and helpful. The bar was comfortable and the food basic but good with good service. Where the hotel disappointed was the rooms. They were in need of refurbuishment and there was an overwhelming smell of stale cigarette smoke which could not be removed by keeping the window open. Friends in an adjoining room found there's to behave the same problem. The transport service to the airport was good in the morning but disappointng on the journey home when our party waas split up despite their being plenty of room for people and kit.The driver appeared to think that having half of two parties rather than transporting one full party was a better deal for all those involved. Very tiresome after an already difficult journey back with four children. Though the price was very competitive we would not want to go back because of the rooms.

Dear Reviewer, thank you for your comments. The older wing of the hotel will be undergoing a refurbishment programme in 2013. The hotel has recently become a non-smoking hotel and your comments have allowed us to ensure these rooms are included in the refurbishment. We have more than one bus ferrying passengers to and from all the airport terminals and we must ensure that the passenger limit regulations are adhered too. I do hope that you would reconsider your decision to stay at the hotel again.
