We arrived and there was no booking for us although I had prepaid so they upgraded us. It wasn't too bad for an over night stay. We landed quite late so only had to sleep there. The bar was badly stocked because there had been some sort of football match a few days before so we had to make do with whatever they had locked in a mini fridge behind reception. The room was quite spacious and luckily we had clean bedding and the bed was a king size.. The shower was maddening as the taps were broken so we couldn't tell which was cold and which was hot and we didn't have time to mess about in the morning. The alarm call was 50 minutes late, we were just leaving the room when the phone rang..........hopeless!!! Quite grotty really but we only spent 7 hours there on our first stay. On our return we had a standard room which was miniscule and a bit smelly. There's a local pub that does ok food, I'd try somewhere that's higher up on the trip advisor list. It's not very close to the Airport, Wythenshaw is local and only £9 in a taxi to the airport, I'm sure there's some lovely B&B's there. Saying that, the transfers are pretty good if you set your alarm. You have to be at the hotel to book a ticket for the transfer which is useless if, like us, you're flying from somewhere else to Manchester Airport, then having to stop overnight to get a connecting flight at Manchester Airport, they don't seem to understand that not everyone lives in the UK and the hotel is the first stop. PS. Manchester airport is a nightmare - only one of those lil plastic bags per person for your liquids??? We ended up throwing lots away as we only had hand luggage and two of those lil plastic bags each.
