We got the trans pennine express train service from Middlesbrough to the Manchester Airport in January 2013. The train stops within a covered area of the airport. You can use an escalator or lifts up directly into the terminal building. The Raddisson Blu is sign posted several times, it is impossible to get lost and it takes around 8 minutes to walk from the railway station to the Hotel entrance. This walk is all inside a covered and heated walkway.
Once at the hotel, check in was efficient and friendly. We were even given a lovely room at the rear of the hotel, overlooking the airport grounds and runway. This room was in the Maritime Suite, which we found tastefully decorated, clean, spacious and very comfortable.
We had dinner in the Bar, before having a nice Burger in the Runway Bar. I agree that the prices are slightly higher than normal, however I feel this facility is really excellent and it is a small price to pay for the convenience and comfort of not messing about with cars, buses and parking issues.
The following morning we walked in the covered walkway into terminal two which only took 5 minutes. Thumbs up to this hotel, would definitely use again.
Amazingly we heard no noise from the airport as the glazing is so efficient.
