If your looking for somewhere cheep & cheerful this is the place. Staff were friendly food enjoyable, kids enjoyed the pizzas and they loved spending time in the pool. We have used this hotel many times when using Manchester air port as the discount on parking is really reasonable.

It seemed ideal. On the doorstep of Manchester airport, a hotel to stay and leave the car in a secure environment. The run up through the grounds looked promising. The car park however looked overgrown with weeds popping through. I got as far as the reception to be told we were staying at a sister hotel (not a pleasant one). No real explanation. No prior warning. There were plenty people going about who were residing there.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night before we travelled on our holidays. We left the car for seven days which was good and got a shuttle bus to the airport and back. What I didn’t like was having to walk past residents smoking some sort of drug by the front door into the hotel not very nice. I mentioned it to the receptionist and she looked at me as much to say yes I am aware but not going to do anything. We bought evening meal and breakfast the following day which I have to say was very poor. The rooms were ok warm and comfy. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is the bar prices were ok. Won’t be staying again.

My wife and I booked two nights in March 2020. I requested a downstairs room as I am partially disabled and have walking difficulties. I received a booking with written confirmation of a "double disabled room". On booking in I was told that there was no downstairs room and we were allocated a first floor room. The lift doorway was too narrow to gain access in my wheelchair and I had to stand to use it. On reaching the room we found it was fitted with a standard toilet / shower (I need handrails to use a toilet without difficulty). My daughter addressed the complaint with the desk staff on my behalf and we were then allocated a downfloor room and she transferred our belongings. It was only some time later I realised that this room also had a standard toilet shower. There was also no dropped kerb at the entrance to the Hotel. If you are in need of disabled facilities I'd advise you to book somewhere else.
