“Convenient and Unlike Airport Hotels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

We have stayed here before and find it very close to the airport (terminal 2 tho close to all) , about 3-4 minutes. Driver fast and no problem. The hotel is an historic grade property so you feel much less like an "airport event". Many huge airport style hotels are very nearby, but we prefer here.We made arrangements via email for our stay and got a very nice upgrade instead when we explained we did not drink and did not care for the wine bonus they were offering as an incentive at that time. Unfortunately, the big screen TV did not work and I discovered when I called for help on it that they knew in advance of placing us in the room that the TV did not work and that they were waiting on a part. At arrival at check in time, the restaurant reservation list was completely full so would advice, I guess, to email in advance for a time if you wish to eat in. Bar food just sandwiches mostly, as could be expected, and service that evening was not good. But would we stay again? Yes, probably because we have learned from our mistakes and overall, we like the property and its value for the money.

First time here, but won't be the last, very handy for Manchester airport. Rooms clean, tidy, modern everything you would need including the requisite kettle cups, tea and coffee.

Made to feel welcome by all the staff in particular the porter, great guy, very chatty helpful and friendly he actually drove us the airport the next morning (only sorry I didn't get his name so could mention him here). The ride to the airport is prompt and because it is close very quick.

Restaurant in the hotel appeared popular and we were very pleased with the service and meals.

Just something to be aware of, If you use the hotels free parking when you go away on holiday your car is taken off site,

Only two minor gripes for me, the room was very warm at night and you were unable to open the windows fully (there is air conditioning (but I am not a fan) pardon the pun, at night). WiFi is a bit flaky and with some devices seems to take an eternity to login.

We checked into this hotel as the it was the closet to the airport and car parking was included.

Check in was simple and the receptionist told us we were on the first floor. I looked hard for a lift but could not find one so eventually I found a member of staff (the receptionist then had a queue). The young man (sadly I did not get his name) told us there was no lift but would we like him to carry our suitcases up the stairs (43kgs total)-it was quite a route to our room and he took them all the way. Great service from this young man however the receptionist should have really asked us if we would like help.

The room was reasonable size and a 4 poster bed.

Next morning we were whisked over to the airport by minibus-not set times for transfers as and when transfers were needed.

On our return we telephoned the hotel who told us the mini bus would be there in 5 mins and were immediately picked up and dropped near our car in the car park.

Great location with excellent transfers -great value.

My Partner and I stayed over on the 21st May prior to our holiday the following day. The meals we had that evening although I thought were expensive but freshly cooked and tasted okay. The breakfast the following morning, had a brilliant choice of food.

Our bedroom was spacious and the bed needed a ladder to get on, it was so high. Very comfortable and the furnishing was of a good quality. The transfer from hotel to the airport was smoothly done and the driver pleasant.

On our return we were collected promptly. I was ready for a cup of tea; so asked the driver if was possible to get one before driving home; he said no problem it could be ordered. I asked for tea for 2. This arrived in a teapot with 2 biscuits. Although okay, I didn't think it was hot enough or of any superior flavour. It provided 5 small cups of tea. When I asked for the bill, I was staggered to find out the unspectacular refreshment had cost £7. It is the most expensive 'hot' drink I have had in my life and I'm 59. The drink consists simply of hot water and 2 teabags, It's ridiculous. Please be aware anyone else, ask before you buy refreshments.

The hotel visually looks great and has nice interior decor. We stayed for a friends party that was held there. The location is a bit out of the way so we had to walk quite far to access the nearest shop. The hotel had wifi and rooms were a nice style and clean. The food was nice and breakfast was your standard continental or full English, but was nice enough to start the day.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Etrop. As a helpful tip, if you need to pop to the shops, one of the drivers can take you across to the Airport terminal and then collect you. They have lots of choice for shopping. If it is just for a walk we are right next door to an open park.

brilliant hotel -very welcoming - room very nice and cosy - bar area very friendly. Food was the very best and served by very attentive staff. We will stay there next tri. So close to the airport but no noise from aircraft. Easy drop off and pick up.

Room Tip: they all looked good and no-one said a negative word about anything.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Etrop Grange is a gracious Grade II listed Georgian Country House originally built in 1780 by school teacher William Moss and although located just a short distance from Manchester Airport, is anything but an airport hotel.Originally known as Moss House, the hotel was renamed Etrop Grange in 1984 by the owners after a local area called Etrop Green. Etrop Grange first opened for business in November 1985 as a fine dining restaurant on just the lower level and was slowly converted into a hotel over the next 13 years with a £3 million refurbishment. The Etrop Grange still retains it's Georgian charm with its stately facade matched by a luxurious interior of decadent chandeliers, heavy drapes and marble fireplaces.Due to modern intervention the hotel is now ideally located just two minutes from Manchester Airport and the M56, and is one of the few hotels in the area with no overhead aircraft noise making it an ideal hotel for business and leisure alike. Offering complimentary transfers to and from the airport and airport railway station (between 06:00 and 22:00), along with complimentary parking and WiFi for all guests, Etrop Grange is the perfect place to spend a relaxing day or night whatever the occasion. ... more   less
