It's a Holiday Inn, so you know what you're going to get: the rooms are large and comfortable with all the facilities you need (but don't even glance at the minibar fridge or the computer will charge you for it) and a good ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. What set this Holiday Inn apart for me, was the friendly efficient staff - from a big smiley welcome from reception as I walked through the door, to the excellent bar and waiting staff (shout out to Brenda, Charlotte and Zoe in particular). It's right alongside the BBC, ITV and independent studios of MediaCity (15 minute Metro ride from Manchester Piccadilly mainline station) and within an easy stroll of The Lowry, Imperial War Museum and loads of restaurants. For those who care, a soccer stadium called Old Trafford is also within walking distance (home, I believe, to one of Manchester's football teams). I've already booked my next visit.

Room Tip: Higher the better to enjoy the view.

What a find on the outskirts of Manchester. Good location for the city centre via a 15 minute tram ride (£3.00 return) easy 20 minute walk to the Man United ground and the Trafford centre is a easy 10 minute bus ride costing £2.20 one way The hotel was great, good size rooms and excellent en-suites. Loved the big shower head. Plenty for breakfast which was fresh and staff happy to make additional items such as porridge. Staff prepared to move on smokers outside the main hotel door. Car park close to hotel and the area is fantastic. Plenty of eating and drinking venues within media city and the Lowery outlet which is a 5 minute walk away.

Room Tip: Gym on site but no swimming pool or spa.

Had a trip to Manchester as a present and booked into this hotel.
The confirmation showed that the rooms booked were a double and a twin. I phoned their agent Lastminute.com and was told that a person called Tanya at the hotel had changed the booking to two double rooms.
When we arrived at the hotel I was told that the booking had not been corrected and we would have to take the rooms booked.
So thank you Tanya and Lastminute.com for your caring and considerate service, I wish.

Room Tip: Turn the air conditioning down to minimum as soon as you arrive or you could have a very hot night.

We recently stayed here and went to see Manchester United play. The hotel is in an amazing location right by the BBC studios and Mediacityuk tram about a minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms were great and modern with everything we needed: safe, desk, hair dryer, tea/coffee, free wifi. The bathrooms were nice and clean - the shower was powerful and bath the perfect length with no stupid taps in the way at the ends so you could totally lay back and relax. The staff were friendly and were happy to move us when we realised our first room was a twin and not a double.
In terms of getting to the football, the location couldn't have been better. We got the tram there but realised on the way back that the walk was just as quick if you go over the bridge near the Lowry outlet.
All in all a great hotel in a great spot with lots of restaurants and a few shops, with easy links to the city and main surrounding attractions. We will definitely be returning and recommending to others!!

One of the best night's sleep I've had at a hotel, with great rooms, with a lot fo space and amazing full length windows which let's in a good amount of light for a morning. Comfy beds and spacious bathrooms, in a nice and quiet location, out of the way of all the hustle when we went on the weekend. If it's not too windy, it would be a great place to go for a walk especially at night and so close to the Lowry and the Outlet Village it's amazing. Good enough transport links to get to Trafford Centre or centre of Manchester. Of course with a Booth's round the corner that's open until on a weekend it was a great stop off point for a few snacks/drinks/anything else!
