“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Booked this hotel for our rugby World Cup final stay, very comfortable, better than the usual express hotels, very convenient for town centre nightlife and shopping, car parking a bit of a pain but all city centre hotels are the same. Breakfast the normal basic food. Would definitely use again.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed here 1 night to visit Christmas Markets with my sister.
Had a lovely twin room. Decent size and very clean and comfortable. Really good shower with nice big towels. Overlooked other buildings but was very quiet. The breakfast was excellent. Plenty to choose from, all fresh and hot. The girls serving were very helpful and friendly as were the receptionists. Not to far to walk to main shops and markets. Enjoyed our stay very much.

I had stayed here on a solo trip to the city; I wanted to do a little sight-seeing and shopping. You would be hard pressed to find a better hotel to do so in style and at this price in Manchester. Arndale, a massive shopping centre is a very shorty walk away, and just a little further down the road is the main city centre. The staff, as many have said, are friendly and efficient. I was particularly impressed when, expecting to just store my luggage, I was able to check into my room at around 10am. The room was large and impeccably kept with a clean, modern look. Complimentary wireless and a good continental breakfast included. Would stay here again without hesitation.

So this is a fantastic hotel- modern, clean and quiet but for me it's biggest disadvantage is finding it and the car park closest to the hotel.

The hotel advertises a specific car park however this car park is just a scrap bit of land with a small sign. I know the hotel doesn't own this car park, but I think they should come to some arrangement whereby they can put a sign up to advertise the fact that that is the correct place to park.

Central to Victoria Station, Printworks for all your restaurants and Arndale Centre. 5 minutes walk from each. Great value with cold and warm help yourself breakfast. Modern hotel only open 2 years. Secure room to leave luggage if arriving early before 2.00pm or leaving after 11.00am.
If you are looking for a short shopping value break by train then you cannot go far wrong with this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking court yard square.

Overall a positive experience. Warm welcome and modern bedroom overlooking the square. Rooms are a little smaller than previous holiday inn's and express by holiday inn's I have stayed at before but better finished so it makes up for it. Still a good size for just a night or twos stay.
It's a little difficult to find. It's off the main road and mostly not visible due to a large building in front. You can see it from the main road on your left just keep your eyes very peeled! there is a drop off point outside.

Parking is just a very short walk away if you are lucky enough to get a spot which I was but there are more carparks nearby.

I stayed here because I was seeing a gig at the Manchester Arena just a 10 minute walk away.

Breakfast is well under par. Worst I've had by far at a holiday Inn. Usually their breakfasts are good. They claim its free to all guests but that's no excuse, you pay for the overall package. It really wouldn't take much for them to make it twice as good.

It is situated in a good location just a 10 minute walk to the Arndale shopping centre and the first of the Christmas Markets which are really good and well worth a visit just for them.

All in all good and I would stay again. Just have a quick search around because you WILL get a better price than on the Holiday Inn website.

Was staying here to attend a concert at MEN. Not easy to find as the signage from the road can't be seen and nobody seemed to have heard of it. Quick pleasant check in.
Staff were extremely friendly and the to help with any issues! Room was clean and well looked after, slightly smaller in size than expected but nice breakfast in the morning

Room Tip: staying on the higher rooms gives u a better view
