Family of 3, 2 adults and one 15 year old girl, stayed here for a 'nice' airport leisurely overnight when we were getting a flight to Mykonos late the following morning. It was about £20 taxi ride (10-15 mins) from airport (we made the mistake of using the black taxi instead of the private hire - it was half that on the way back!!). We stayed in what was called a quad family room - double bed and a sofa bed - which was very comfortable and clean but smallish. There didn't seem to be any lift so be aware there are stairs and some sort of 'higgledy-piggeldy' corridors to bring your bags through. The setting is nice and there's a village about 15 mins walk where you can have a pint in an old pub. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was very good. There was a bit of a dispute in the morning about whether we could still get our breakfast when we presented just after 10 am but the excellent and friendly staff backed off very quickly and served up a delicious cooked breakfast. Recommended if you're using Manchester airport and you want something nice that's accessible from the airport but manifestly NOT an airport hotel.
