We had a rather long stay but the staff offered help whenever we needed, specially Luju and Eveline, who are proactive at service and good at communication, but everyone on the team is really[More] cheerful and diligent, including the kitchen, cleaning and maintenance staff.
Their breakfast selection is to the point. Food tastes adequately but consistently fresh and delicious. And truly wonderful is the location. You could easily walk around the city centre and access to the major transport stops while being able to enjoy quiet nights because the hotel sits in a calm and clean corner of the city.
Cleanliness-wise, the carpets could use a bit more vigorous vaccumming, but the rooms were clean enough even for a long stay like ours and the sheets spotless. It looks like the cleaning team had already tried their best attending to so many rooms everyday. My suggestion is to hire more staff on the cleaning team.
Thanks again for the team for your hard work in keeping this hotel clean and functional. I would definitely choose this branch again whenever I stop by Manchester.[Less]

Comfortable Bed - discomfortable breakfast
Generally I lived this hotel as it is close of my meeting place. Price are high compare to it should be.
Break fast are poor and should have better availability and more variety.[Less]
Much better than expected
By Dawson's owner
First time of using Holiday Inn / Holiday Inn Express and was a little daunted by some of the reviews but swayed to book by location and the price. So pleased I did. Booking on line easy, an email to[More] front desk confirmed free parking for hotel guests. Parking easy, reception very helpful and checked the room was the type we wanted and offered to swap. Lovely room, clean and everything we needed. Later in the evening found no TV remote in the room but the deputy GM soon found us one without any problem. We were late down for breakfast next day but food was still available and tasty.
Checkout good, we would definitely use this chain again and recommend this hotel. Thanks[Less]
Great service, good staff and very clean.
By Satisfied Customer 64
On arrival the hotel looks a little cramped, placed between McDonalds and Enterprise Car Rental with the car park at the side and back of the hotel. However, once inside the hotel the service was[More] excellent. Alex, in particular was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for him and he did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The hotel is very clean in both the public areas and the rooms. The room and the bed were very comfortable and modern. The breakfast is basic but well prepared. The rooms are excellent value for money. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this particular Holiday Inn Express and would definitely stay there again.[Less]

A pleasant return
We have stayed here several times before but due to other circumstances it was not our first choice this time however, due to unforeseen problems with our first choice we booked this hotel at very[More] very short notice , Louise as part of the management team deserves a special mention as she could not have done more to accommodate our last minute needs. The hotel is in a great position and ideal for our needs , the rooms are very comfortable, clean and the staff are first class. The pool and gym are a welcome addition which we also make use of.The restaurant was only open for breakfast which in these times was understandable and the tablet ordering system for food and drinks was easy to use and did not compromise the service at all.
A great stay made better by the staff and we will be back soon.[Less]
A really good hotel - made very welcome and everything was pretty much as it should be. I like Holiday Inns.[Less]
Wedding weekend - brilliant staff
We held our wedding at the hotel and had a fantastic weekend. The hotel arranged everything for us. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at any time. The guest room for the night prior to the[More] wedding was clean and very comfortable. Other guests arriving early were accommodated easily and cheerfully. Use of the leisure facilities was much appreciated and enabled us to relax prior to the big day, lovely swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room. Very clean.
The staff were absolutely marvellous. Every little detail of our wedding had been thought of, including little touches like calming nerves and champagne glasses with our names iced on to them.
The food was excellent. well presented and cooked to perfection. Breakfast was very good. Spoilt for choice with a wide selection and service was brilliant. The staff were bright and cheerful, very helpful and the restaurant was clean and welcoming. The food was excellent.[Less]
