“Better than I expected”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I tend to avoid budget chains, after having a disastrous stay in a Travel Lodge and thought this could be similar. Decided to stay here on the strength of other Trip Advisor reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Good greeting on arrival and room was clean.

Free WiFi good but limited to 30 mins. Reasonably close to most attractions in the city, and there's a free (green) shuttle bus which stops right outside. Didn't eat here as we preferred to explore other places in the city.

I stayed in this hotel for one night before Christmas to attend an interview in Manchester. Three weeks later, I returned for further three nights and again for five nights. When I checked in the receptionist immediately recognised me, as did a waiter. Anyone who has read my previous reviews will note I comment on the friendliness of the staff. There is no exception here. The restaurant staff are helpful, polite and courteous and the meals are not to bad either. The rooms in this hotel are spacious and clean with a large comfortable bed. The hotel is located on a busy road but do not let that put you off, as it is quiet inside the rooms. It is also located about fifteen minutes walk from the town centre. Before I forget, there is ample car parking. I will be spending some time working in Manchester over the next six months and this hotel will be first on my list.

My boyfriend and I stayed here with another couple on new years eve. We found the hotel easily and there was plenty of spaces to park also. Checked in very quickly and efficiently. The room was just like all others of this chain but very clean and comfortable and quiet! Had something to eat and drink at the bar and the receptionist ordered us a taxi for later. Hotel was near to our plans for the evening do was great. Would definetly stay here again!

This Premier in is a good one, with the staff very friendly and helpful
It has its only bar and restaurant and was great value for money. I had booked in for the wrong night (my fault) but the staff amended my booking and sorted things, they could not have been more helpfull.

I stayed here by accident, long story. Staff were excellent, as always with Premier Inn the rooms were spacious and clean and the location wasn't bad either. Considering this hotel is almost on top of the Motorway there was very little noise from outside. only problem was they seemed to have let the bedroom above to a medium sized Hippo if the bouncing around on the floor was anything to go by, other than that there wasn't any noise from inside either.
There were plenty of bars and restaurants around, in walking distance. But to be honest it was cold and dark so I just ate in the restaurant which was really nice and very reasonable. The one thing that is outstanding for me however is the staff training programme they have their levels of customer service match John Lewis and M&S, which to be honest in the UK i like hens teeth, as most companies have no concept of customer focus.
Only reason I wouldn't choose this hotel over another Premier Inn is the customers I go to see are further out of Manchester, but if you need somewhere near then I wouldn't go further than this one.

Room Tip: Face onto car park and ask for high room due to smokers at entrance

Great position just off motorway. Free shuttle service into town. All you would expect from a Premier Inn. Our second visit, learnt their are several buses to Trafford centre, stops within walking distance of hotel.

Room Tip: Sorry no pool (mistake). Make use of free shuttle.
