Stayed here Last week(7Nov-11Nov)with Just Go Holidays had a great time.Coach driver,great guy, checked with reception before we went in and I was in my room within 10 mins.I am a single traveller but had a double room of a good size my only down side was the size of the shower,a little cramped,I am 6'2".The room was clean and quite spacious and the towels were fresh every day also had tea and coffee making facillities.The English Breakfast and the Three Course Carvery at night were exellent as was our entertainment.Peter our compare was always ready with infomation relating to our next days trip.Some of my fellow travellers did have problems with electronic key cards but mine worked every time.Will certainly go back.All the staff were very helpful and pleasant.Room 149 in the back of hotel not a great view but only in there at night and was ether asleep or getting changed.

Stayed here on Saturday night. There was a wedding on, so I suppose all the better rooms were booked. We had a tiny room with a view to service staircase. The room had coffee making facilities a comfy double bed and a small bathroom with a shower. All you need for a one night stay.
The transport to the airport was a bit messed up on the way. They did finally order us a taxi. On the way back from the airport you have to go to departures level and wait outside for a van to call your name. We rang as soon as we arrived but had to wait for an hour before our name was called. It really is better just to take a taxi back, especially if you've just been on a long flight or if it's cold outside.
Our car was left very near the hotel entrance and it was fine on the return, safe place to leave your car and you can keep hold of your keys.
Very good deal for park and stay, well worth it. The hotel has nice facilities, so no need to go anywhere else.

Room Tip: I heard other people had stayed there and got a room with a 4 poster bed, even with the park and rid...

Firstly, my wife visited the hotel in mid October for a local coach firms annual conference. We have been to previous similar conferences which were held at various locations. My wife, and other people attending the conference, agreed that this was by far the best location that the firm had used. Good accommodation, food, pleasant and polite staff. The decor of the room used for the conference dinner was outstanding.
The second visit, also a coach trip, was on the 15th November, and followed a short shopping visit to the Trafford Centre. We received a warm welcome from the staff and enjoyed an excellent dinner in pleasant surroundings. Following the dinner we were entertained by Peter who ensured that we had an extremely enjoyable afternoon. He, like all of the staff at the hotel, was polite and courteous. All staff members were a credit to the hotel. Colin W.

We stayed at this hotel on a coach trip holiday and were very impressed with the service we received. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was good and plentiful, the evening entertainment was very good indeed. Staff helpful and friendly. There was only one downside some of the dining room staff had a very poor understanding of the English language.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband from7th to 11th November 2011 and can only describe the break as beyond our highest expectations, The room, no. 58 although small was smart, clean and very comfortable, we had change of bedding and towels every day. Food was excellent with a good variety of choice and smiling service from all the staff. Entertainment each evening was also excellent and hosted by Peter who helped make the whole experience a pleasure. Would certainly use this hotel again and would recommend it to all.

My Wife and I stayed at this hotel (Mon 7 Nov 2011 - Fri 11 Nov 2011) arriving by coach, everything was organised in reception for speedy access to our room No.50, which was nice, clean, but possibly a little small, (although we only needed it for sleeping) as we were fully entertained for our 4 nights stay.

The entertainment which was hosted by Peter was excellent as was all the service provided by the staff, in the bars and restaurants. The food provided by the Hotel, both choice and variety, were excellent. thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely stay here again.
