“Disappointed”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Stayed here after a lovely holiday away in Portugal and what a come down!

Our room was very dated with a stale smell of smoke. The temperature was way too hot considering we had the air con on the lowest setting. You can't open the window either which resulted in an uncomfortable sleep simply because of the heat, our room was cooler in Portugal!

The bed however was extremely comfortable with big fluffy pillows, just a shame I couldn't enjoy my sleep as I was uncomfortably hot.
I can't fault the staff either they were all very helpful, professional and friendly.

I think you can get much better value for money in other hotels surrounding the airport.

We checked in after our flight home at midnight. Check in was very swift-took about 30 seconds! We were pleased we had been upgraded free I charge to a business class room. Bed was huge and welcoming, bathrobe and slippers were provided, well stocked mini bar and a bathroom with nice toiletries. This hotel has been sound-proofed and we ears no noise at all from the airport.

Breakfast in the morning had a wide selection including smoked salmon and a wide range of fruit juices and check out was quick and straight forward. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when departing/arriving from Manchester airport and in need of somewhere to stay. It is perfectly located- 5 minutes covered walkway from terminal 2 and even less of a walk to the bus/train station. The staff were all friendly, courteous and helpful.

Comfortable clean hotel at the airport near Terminal 2 and the train station. Good size rooms, comfortable beds with nice linens. Perfect for an early flight as you can walk to any of the terminals. Hotel has restaurant and bar areas that are quite nice. The location is ideal if you need a place to sleep before a flight but you do have to leave the terminal area if you want to find a restaurant or pub for food unless you eat at the hotel.

stayed in here in June 2012 -
rooms was very dated for the price we had paid and eat in the restaurant at the airport entrance which was completely overpriced and portions were tiny! Doesnt really represent good value for money when you can stay in any number of airport hotels for a much lower rate per night.

We stayed the Night before flying off to Sharm El Sheikh, the hotel room is ok, needs a bit of refurbishment but the place was clean.

We had a buffet breakfast in the runway lounge, wow what a great choice and the view was amazing, Would definately return back

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions when I have been flying from Manchester Airport. If you don't want the hassle of having to taxi into the terminal this is the place to stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you would need for a one night stay. I have used the spa and the pool both of which are excellent for an airport hotel. It is only minutes walking time to any of the terminals.

Room Tip: I always prefer a room overlooking the runway - something to watch!

Great hotel for business. Its a ten min walk to the airport and has info screens in the hotel. Don't buy the burger thou it is over priced and you get around 5 french fries with it. That is no joke either.
