Stayed at the crowne plaza when i arrived and again a day before i fly home. When i arrived on a Sunday morning at Manchester ariport Terminal 2, i was all prepared to walk to the hotel after seeing a number of negative reports on the free shuttle transfer.
Anyway, i just gave it a try. Approach the courtesy phone at the Airport after collecting my bags and called the hotel using the Airport courtesy phone. Got thru', was put on hold for 3 minutes as there are lots of call. Speak to the staff, guided me to the pick up point and was in the hotel in 10 minutes. Check in is a breeze.
Enclosed some photo of the room. I am surprise to find Iron / Ironing Board in the room.
I walked to the train station, which is no more then 10 minutes. Walk out of the main entrance, cross the 2 way road, walk around a petrol station and arrive at the train station.
When i return to the hotel on Friday, i was greeted by a friendly staff as he recognises me since i stayed earlier that week. Impressived.
Again i walk to the station and took a train to Manchester Picadilly (off peak same day return £1.80). Short walk to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner and return to the hotel.
In the morning, it is a bit busy but still managed to use the complimentary shuttle to the airport.
Not expensive, met my needs on both occasion and will stay here again if i am passing thru'
