Thanks, do you know if it is a hard walk with luggage? And it will be almost dark when we arrive.

Why is this hotel stupid enough to call itself "BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow"?

Wonder how many customers end up in Wilmslow instead

Thanks I finally figured that out. Thanks for the update. It helps me out a lot. Do you know how hard it is to go back into downtown for dinner from there after we check-in? I a m assuming you live in Manchester.

We assume you are staying in Handforth, A34 to Wilmslow, but you want to go back to Manchester Piccadilly?

If you just want to have a nice meal somewhere, Wilmslow is nearer, about 3 miles or a bit less, with plenty of pleasant places - it's an upmarket place - whereas Manchester is about 9 miles or so.

But if you want to go back into Manchester, trains are reasonably frequent - 2 an hour or so. Check them out for the dates and times here:

Code for Piccadilly is MAN, Handforth HTH.

Incidentally, if you are travelling both ways by train, always buy a return if you're travelling after 0930, as it's only a few pence more than a single!

Is there any reason why you are staying so far out of Manchester?

We were looking for a good price (read cheap). We need to go to Appley Bridge the next day in the afternoon then after only two nights in Manchester we head to the airport early. But we do want to get into Manchester for a little site seeing before leaving. Best Western looks nice and is a lot less than hotels near Piccadilly where we arrive late on a Friday.
