Stayed for the night, to catch an early flight. When I noticed that I'd miss breakfast as would be checking out early, the lovely waitress brought me fruit & yogurt to keep for my breakfast. Much appreciated! Room cosy for a single traveller & although hotel having a refurb didn't detract from the fantastic service. Will definitely stay again

Stayed one night and ate dinner in the restaurant. The staff were helpful and friendly, particularly in the restaurant. The food was delicious. While we stayed, the main restaurant was closed and had temporarily moved to the 1st floor but the hotel had tried hard to make this a pleasant environment. Bed was medium softness and I found it very comfortable. I'd booked an Executive Room to get a larger bed, and it was reasonably spacious but with a four-poster bed and no desk, it really wasn't 'executive', more 'honeymoon'! The bathroom was dated but spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed, including toiletries.

My only real niggle is that there's no aircon - pretty normal for a UK hotel - but there's no opening windows either so the room was horribly stuffy in the night. I felt the hotel was a little overpriced compared to others in the area. I paid 81 gbp for a night without breakfast but it should be more like 65 gbp.

It was ideally placed for an overnight stay before flying out of Manchester airport. We were warned that the hotel was undergoing a modernisation programme but can honestly say that this did not interfere with us in anyway. The breakfast was one of the best that we have encountered in the UK and Giovanni's service in the restaurant was first class.
We had taken the train to the airport and used Arrow cars to take us to and from the hotel. Again their service was first rate and reasonably priced.
We walked into Handforth and ate at the Indian restaurant who offer an excellent meal for £10 99 on Tuesday evenings.

We have used, and still do, Manchester airport quite regularly and with age or is it experience, stopped the mad dash over the M62 at 4 am, instead extending our holiday by a day and using Park and Stay.

However, if you were looking for a Park and Stay at Manchester Airport you certainly wouldn't choose this for hotel for its location, but you would be so wrong on that score and all the other aspects.

Parking was easy, our spot was directly opposite the front entrance. The hotel is near the airport, but not on the flight path, such that with our window wide open we slept like tots. Transfers were arranged by the hotel and went like clockwork.

Finally the food. We all know what airport hotel catering can be like, staff rushed off their feet trying to make excuses for the standard of food, well not at the Pinewood. Our dinner was excellent, the staff relaxed and the bottle of wine pretty good as well.

As far as the "Stay away" and "not be coming again" comment. I would reply as follows. We found this hotel to be friendly, welcoming, our room was immaculately clean, the food was cooked not microwaved, the wine very acceptable and our sleep undisturbed.

May I suggest Woody next time you visit the UK, if there is a next time, you bring a tent and oh yes a map!

when we booked a weekend break we were informed that major alterations were ongoing. if we had not been told we would not have known as everything was discreet.
It was excellent value for money. The staff including the manager could not have been more helpful or friendly.
The evening meal was excellent and the breakfast of the same high standard.
will return when the major refit is complete.
The hotel is ideally placed for Manchester airport and has several National Trust Properties in the vicinity.

Room Tip: all rooms appear to be quite when major refurbishment is complete try for a luxury room
