I stay in hotels most week and I am generally a big fan of the intercontinental hotel groups. I decided to spend some of my hard earnt loyalty points on this hotel whilst visiting Manchester for a 30th party.
All i need to really comment on is the location, please do not be fooled to think this hotel is anywhere near manchester city centre - it is basically in the middle of an industrial estate which is 100% impossible to find using the instructions OR map provided on the holiday inn website. When we arrived in Manchester it took us 1.5 hours to find the hotel, we had rushed all day to get there and then lost all this time driving around every part of Manchester, we regualrly got to within the hotel vicinity as shown on the map only to miss the hotel. The reason being it is in the middle of an unsigned industrial park with not 1 single sign. After 1.5 hours I can tell you I was so stressed and upset and we turned up very late to the party! 4 cocktails later and I had just about calmed down!
When you do arrive the hotel is clean and newish inside (v small rooms and tiny bath) but you then have to pay £5 to park there!
The staff are friendly and there is no outside noise. We were not there long enough to comment any further. I would recommend the Hilton - you can't miss that whilst driving round this city!
