“Excellent Premier Inn for Manchester Airport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

Very quiet location with no disturbances during the night, its an old Premier Inn but don't let that bother you. The staff were lovely and polite when we checked in and out and the room was big and very clean. Its in a great location for Manchester airport as its not under the flight path like some of the other hotels but still only 15 minutes drive to the airport parking!

The restaurant next door was a bit sloppy on service, we had to go and ask for someone to take our order but, as mentioned is not part of the Premier Inn business so you can't criticise it for this, its just a bonus you don't have to travel very far to grab food. There are some other restaurants very close by if you don't want to visit the pub next door, however discount vouchers are online and available if you want for 20% meals there.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in 2010 and really enjoyed it, so when looking for a location on our way home to Canada this year there was no hesitation....back to this hotel! It was great, again. The front desk staff are always absolutely wonderful, acknowledge you when you pass through the lobby and ALWAYS with a cheery word and a smile. They make you feel very welcome. The rooms, beds, bathrooms etc, were excellent. We were also really pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant attached has had some updating since 2010, it looks great, the food was very good and there was lots of choice on the menu!!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and were warmly greeted on arrival, in fact whenever we passed through reception the girl on the desk was always cheerful and friendly. We were told that we had been allocated a quiet room at the end of the corridor on the first floor, and this was correct, so were able to park our car right under the window. We were surprised that there was no lift, so we had to carry our cases up the stairs, although the girl on reception did offer to find someone to help us, should it be necessary. The room was clean and pleasant, and quite spacious, with an old fashioned TV, which worked ok. The bathroom was fine although the bath was very slippery when using the shower, so we put one of the hand towels down in the bath to avoid accidents. Tea and coffee making facilities are supplied but no decaff. coffee. However, when we asked at reception for more tea and coffee, it was handed to us with a smile. The bed was enormous and quite the most comfortable that we have ever slept in, a real plus. We met some friends on the first evening and all dined at the Bulls Head next door. The service was prompt and the food good and not overpriced at this Chef & Brewer pub. The large car park was more than adequate for the number of people using the hotel and pub. This Premier Inn is comfortable, and conveniently situated for Cheshire and Manchester, but must be due for modernisation by comparison with other Premier Inns. My wife and I would certainly stay there again.

We stayed at premier for a few days at the end of june. the hotel was very clean and the rooms were spacious. When we arrived there were contractors in steam cleaning the showers and shower heads.So we were without a shower for around 20mins on arrival in our room which was no problem at all.
The staff were lovely and helpful as we had not stayed in the Handforth area before they were able to tell us where best shopping close by and eateries were.
The WI FI was £3.00 for 24 hours and payable at the reception desk it was quick and easy to use. There is parking facilities directly outside the hotel and no matter when you return with your car there is always a space available.
We ran out of coffee etc in the rooms and again reception gave us plenty of refills when we asked. We came back to stay a few days later and they remembered us which was lovely.
The area outside the hotel was also clean and tidy. The only downfall was that the rooms were so very hot, to overcome this problem the management had left an info note in the bedrooms about dealing with heat in rooms and also supplied each room with a large fan,which although didnt solve the problem but helped.
The pub adjoined to the hotel and where you get breakfast was nice and the staff were lovely and friendly but very clearly understaffed. The cleanliness of the outside garden areas for the pub were scruffy and unkept and empty glasses were left outside for hours. There was even a person sick outside in the seating area and that sick was not cleaned up in the three days we were there which is sad as if they kept the pub and it surroundings cleaner the area and hotel would be perfect as it is really lush and green with squirrels and wild birds along the trees. Its a shame the pub lets premier inn down.

We stayed here as we couldn't find anywhere closer to Jodrell Bank for the Elbow concert on the 23rd June. The hotel was easy to find and although about 30 minutes early checking in, we were welcomed warmly by the gentleman on reception. The hotel room was clean and large, but there are areas which are in need of modernisation. Everywhere is very wooden and the old-style TV which takes up a huge space on the table would not appeal to everyone. One thing that I found very annoying was the length of time the extractor fan remained on once you had switched the bathroom light off. It is very noisy and certainly not something you'd want on during the night when you usually need the light on!
Other than that, the breakfast (pre-booked) at the pub right next door to the hotel was OK. Staff were friendly and welcoming, food cooked to order, apart from toast, pastries, juice which was self-service. Overall a pleasant stay but Premier Inn, please give the small, welcoming place a like of paint it so surely deserves.

Room Tip: Try to avoid switching the bathroom light on if at all possible, as the extractor fan is loud and st...

Hi,

I would like to thank you for your feedback about the premier inn. I have passed on your comments to reception and housekeeping team at premier inn and also to pub team in the restaurant and they are very much appreciated. I have also noticed your comment about extractor fan in bathrooms. They have been recently put into premier inns and the longer the light is on the longer the fan will stay on as it is to provide ventilation and stops mould setting in our bathrooms. I will check with the engineer to see if there is anyway of keeping the noise down.

We hope to welcome you again in future.

Staff were generally welcoming and helpful. Location was convenient. Old-fashioned decor. Bathroom was small. There wasn't enough hot water for a bath. As always, the toilet paper was like sandpaper. Surely Premier Inn could supply better toilet paper? Our double bed had a dip in the middle. Breakfast was disappointing though, and was not the normal Premier Inn-wide selection we've experienced at other Premier Inns. The door entry system was still a Yale lock, and not a card entry system. Premier should modernise this place as it looks dated.
