Decent hotel - reasonably close to the centre but no in the heart of it, Basic, clean. Easy to get to, get away from, check in. No frills but good value. Stayed only for one night with family - two adults, two kids in one room - double and doube sofa. Was a little cramped but fair enough. Breakfast was... More

Awful food, worst I've had in all holiday inns. Getting to room isn't easy using stairs or lift, and the rooms are old, I even had a pile of toe nail clippings in the bathroom, avoid!! An I'm a gold member, won't be staying here again!!

Stayed one night on a Saturday. Easy check in with no problems. Room was simple but clean with a very comfortable bed. Inclusive breakfast was good value. Scrambled eggs, sausage and beans or various cereals, along with croissants and muffins. Unlimited tea or coffee and juice. Only issue was the adjacent pub/restaurant had closed down which meant I had to... More

I used this hotel as a stop over for Manchester Airport as it was half the price of the holiday inn at the airport.

The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Rooms are clean. Trails close by to run around a lake with a nice park. Breakfast is really nice with several options in the buffet. Limited food nearby but they have food and provide takeout menus.

Staying for a 3 nights on business and good location for what was required. Friendly staff and always looking to help. Meals not available until after 6 and only a snack menu available on last night and no real alternatives near by. Rooms clean and tidy and but lighting poor for working in. As I say"does the job"

This is where we stay after landing in Manchester. When we arrived it was almost like coming home. The staff are informative and very friendly. We found the beds comfortable and very good value. Your breakfast is your typical Holiday Inn, but we appeared to have more choices on the Continental side of things
