Stayed here for one night with friends prior to flying out the next day. Was very disappointed with the hotel. It felt dated especially in the rooms. We have a child and when the child bed was made up it, it made the room very cramped. Also the shower over the bath was poor.
We ate in the brasserie and the food was ok though not a great selection. Prices were average. This hotel relies on the fact that it is connected to the airport via the walkway. This does not justify it's high price and outdated rooms. Bewley's is far better and it's just the same distance to walk to terminal 1 except it's not under cover.

Bewley's is far better.

I don't often stay at these corporate "palaces", but when I do, I'm amused by the contrast between their pretensions of grandeur and their failure to do the simplest things properly. This was no exception...
1. My "business class" room had a phone in the bathroom (these businessmen - always doing deals!). What the bathroom didn't have, though, was a waste-disposal bin. Having removed the wrapper from the soap, I had to take it round to the bin in the room.
2. I fancied a beer from the minibar. To get this unlocked, you had to ring "One-Touch Service". The lady on "OTS" did some computer-stuff and asked if I had heard "a click". I hadn't. More computer-stuff - now my minibar was definitely open, she said. It wasn't. What the heck - I made a cup of tea.
3. I like a bed with a substantial headboard, but no chance of that here. There was nothing at all to lean on, and if you did attempt to lean back you would bash your head (as I did) on one of the over-bed lights. A piece of spectacularly bad design, I would suggest.
Trivial complaints? Well, let's remember we're talking about £135 a night here. Attention to detail beats pretensions to grandeur every time!

Booked business class room. Very nice room, overlooking the runway with floor to ceiling windows. Staff always very courteous and helpful. Amenities very clean and efficient. Thought really good value for money although having to pay a car park fee of £10 overnight was a little steep and unexpected whilst staying at a hotel. Also restaurant quite expensive for a burger. Breakfast one of the best we have had.

Hotel serves its purpose as it is excellently located for accessing the airport as it just a short walk from the airport terminals but the rooms appear tired and some of the rooms where previously smoking rooms and still have a odour of stale tobacco. Chekin and out where swift and on the go breakfast was adequate.

We had a great stay at the Radisson at Manchester Airport in July before our flight to Cuba.

The location is fantastic, we got the train to the airport from Lancaster and were through the sky walk into the hotel in about 10 minutes. It was also great for walking to the terminals and meant that we could have an extra hour in bed before catching our early morning flight! We also went on the train to Manchester the day before our flight which was really easy and only took about 15 minutes. We also had a fantastic view of the airport and my husband really enjoyed sitting and watching the planes landing and taking off in the evening. We also saw our own plane when we woke up in the morning which was nice!

The rooms are okay, although a bit dated, it was clean and very comfortable! As I mentioned before, there was also a great view towards the runways. The bathroom was clean and functional too. We also used the swimming pool, sauna, stream room etc. which were lovely before our flight. Although the pool is small, it was really relaxing. There is also a good gym which seemed to be well used.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in the hotel and it was a nice extra addition to our holiday. The staff were also really friendly and helpful which helps. Although, it was slightly more expensive than some of the other airport hotels, I think that it is definitely worth it for the location. It was so easy to reach the railway and terminals and it made the experience less stressful! I would recommend the hotel to those travelling to or from the airport!

This hotel is exactly what you would expect - it's a hotel by the airport! The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and polite and the room was comfortable and clean. I am not sure what previous reviewers are complaining about! It takes a normal an adult walking at a leisurely pace ten mins to get to terminal 2. You go through the sky tubes which is all very exciting! The cheaper of the restaraunts is not up to much - I'd drive to Bewlies and eat there! We were charged 50 quid for a second rate pizza, 2 bowls of chips, 2 choc puddings and something else my husband had, and a few drinks. None of it was very nice -

But I loved the pool, sauna and steam room. Great if you have kids. Will be returning !
