Stayed here the night before we flew out for our honeymoon, this hotel is very easy to find. We booked the hotel & parking package with our travel agent through Superbreak, however on arrival they couldn't find our booking. Not quite sure what they did in the end, but we were given a keycard and all the necessary info within about 5 minutes so I think the booking must have turned up - they didn't make any phone calls or anything. The hotel doesn't look much from the outside, but when inside the public areas look very nice. I was a little disappointed with the room at first, but I think I might have just had high expectations - it's only for a night after all. We had 2 double beds in the room, which was clean and quite spacious. No fault with the room, just a few minor things like loose taps and broken towel rails that aren't a problem and wouldn't be given a second thought in a Travelodge, but in the Hilton it's not quite what you'd expect. Anyway, if that's all I've got to moan about then surely that says it all! Considering the proximity to the airport the noise from outside is minimal, but there's not a great deal of soundproofing in the rooms - I think we were next door to another honeymooning couple, but never mind...we got our own back! That said, our room must also be used as a family room, as there was an interconnecting door (locked of course), so maybe this affected the soundproofing? We didn't eat in the hotel for obvious reasons, we had a drive around and ended up in Cheadle (about 15-20mins away) where there's loads of restaurants and takeaways. If you're parking in the hotel overnight, just ask reception to scan your carparking ticket to let you out free of charge if you're going out for dinner, then get a new ticket from the barrier when you come back in. You're given a form and an envelope to fill in and give your car keys to reception, it says you should do this by 11pm on the night - when we left for the airport at 8am the next morning our car had already been taken away - I believe they take it to Airparks but not sure which one. The transfer to the airport was embarrassingly quick - easy enough to walk, even with cases, but there is a busy road and lets not forget that it's probably raining in Manchester! On our return we couldn't find the courtesy phone in Terminal 1 so we just waited at the bus stop and the minibus arrived within about 10mins anyway - I think somebody else had called it, though, otherwise we might have had a longer wait! We'd paid for 15 days parking and, including the night that we parked in the Hilton, we'd actually been gone for 17 days but nothing was said about an extra charge. The paperwork they give you says that extra days parking should be arranged and paid for with the Hilton reception before you leave, but we took our chances and it paid off - what's the worst that can happen? So I was pleased not to have anything extra to pay, no bumps or scratches on the car and overall happy with this package. Not sure if I'd stay here again, it would depend on the price - we pushed the boat out a bit with it being our honeymoon, other hotel and parking packages started at a good £30 or so cheaper, but even at the £95 we paid it's still good value including the parking. On the point of price, when our agent booked us on the Superbreak website the Hilton & parking was over £100, but they do a "Secret Hotel" offer where they don't tell you the name of the hotel until you've booked and paid for it. Here's a tip - read the description of the "Secret" hotel carefully - you can almost always work out which hotel it is from the clues anyway, we saved over £10 from doing this!
