“Great Hotel - before you Fly out!”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

The Crowne Plaza at the Manchester airport was an excellent choice after a long train ride from Derby! I enjoyed the staff and the room Service was fast and the food is excellent.....

I plan to return on my next trip to the UK...

Room Tip: I faced a parking lot - but it was very quiet!

We make a bee-line for the Crowne Plaza when travelling from Manchester Airport. The reception staff are pleasant and efficient, the rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable and well-equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer etc, linen and towels are top quality, White Company toiletries provide a bathroom treat, and the beds are comfy.
The hotel's drivers provide speedy and courteous transport to and from the airport.
Get up in the early hours for a long drive and straight into airport hell, or have a relaxing evening in a nice hotel followed by a five minute transfer to check-in the next morning? A no-brainer!
One word of caution though - bar prices are high if like us you're from the sticks!

Room Tip: We've had several different rooms; they've all been quiet.

We arrived at the Crowne Plaza ahead of an early morning flight. After some difficulty finding a car parking space we then waited for 20 minutes at Reception to be dealt with (there were only 2 Reception Staff on duty).

We explained we had booked a room and parking for 2 weeks and gave our name. The Receptionist then said that we had booked for the previous night (we had done so in error then amended the booking at an additional cost to the correct night). They said the hotel was fully booked and directed us to the Holiday Inn where we could pay £90! For some reason the Receptionist then changed and we had to repeat the same information again. The Crowne Plaza could not find any amended booking for us and again said the hotel was fully booked.

Fortunately we had a copy of the email confirmation with us.

When we handed the confirmation over and started to complain - the Receptionist spoke to another member of staff and miraculously the hotel wasn't fully booked after all!

The room was as expected and of a good standard.

The following morning we handed our car keys into Reception and enquired where we had to wait for the transfer to the airport. We were told 'outside' (not particularly helpful) and spotted a few other people walking around outside looking for a sign/information. One of the other guests had to go back into the hotel to clarify where we should wait. You wait underneath the canopy area. 20 minutes went by - still no sign of the minibus. Again, one of the other guests went to Reception to enquire as it was now the time we should be checking in at the airport. The minibus arrived and as it only holds 6 people and luggage, this created a back-log. Fortunately we were in the first 6 people but others were complaining behind us that they wouldn't be staying at the Crowne Plaza again as they were now late for their flights.

The only positive thing I can say for the whole experience was that our car was ready for collection as soon as we arrived back.

The room itself was acceptable but at no point did we receive an apology/sorry for the inconvenience from any member of staff. So, unfortunately, our first experience at a Crowne Plaza hotel was not an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: Make sure you have printed out confirmation to take with you

Excellent choice for overnight stay and two weeks parking.The room had everything needed for a comfy night before your flight and the bathroom was spotlessly clean with free toiletries too!Important to us Ladies when you may have checked in your luggage early.
Good Reception staff, very friendly and efficient check in and our keys were waiting as we checked out.
We will use the Crowne Plaza for future trips.

Often stay here due to its proximity to our Manchester offices and always offers good value. Never had a problem with parking as some reviewers have, checkin is always fast (especially for priority club members!). Rooms are a nice size & spotless as is the rest of the hotel. The food in the main bar, irish pub & asian is of a good standard as is the service. Breakfast can get a little hectic but is perfectly adequate. Whilst at the hotel i enquired about park & fly and this seems to be very competative for 15 nights parking plus 1 night in a family room for £119 !! Finally i left my Kindle behind in my room (no hangover involved....;-) ) and rang the hotel that evening and was asked to call back 1st thing the next day. My kindle had been found & was posted out to me that day, it arrived next working day which is an excellent service.

This is the third time my wife and I have booked a night in the hotel plus two weeks parking. The staff are efficient and helpful. Check in is easy. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Transportation to the airport and collection from the airport upon our return has always been pretty quick and straightforward. We collected our car keys from reception upon our return and were on our way home in no time. We ate in the main restaurant near the bar for our evening meal and the food was fine but a little on the expensive side. Overall a good package.

Room Tip: Club rooms have king size beds and a little more space. They are worth the extra price.
