Hello

We are hoping to go up to Manchester in the summer for 3 or 4 nights with the boys to see our best man. I wondered if anyone had any good recomendations for hotels there?
I have looked at the hilton, but looks v expensive ?3300 in deals:eek: and the marriott. Has anyone actually stayed in any hotels around there with or without deals, thankyou.

get yourself a cheap Travelodge - I've had to book some and didnt know what city I would be in - is cheaper to book one in each of the cities for ?29 a shot than to get their flexible rate - just wont turn up at one of the places - I know that sounds a bit strange but why pay ?70 for the refundable one when you can pay 2 x ?29 (?58)

Travelodge have great deals for family rooms,look on the website,if you book in advance you can get rooms for just ?19,they did have an offer for ?9.00 rooms a few weeks ago,if you are looking on the outskirts of manchester avoid haydock travelodge,mum stayed there last week and it was awful.tash

Hi Kerry

I have stayed a lot at the Didsbury travelodge. It is slightly out of the city centre but has free parking and easy access to the city by bus on a number of routes. There is also a cinema/bingo hall/restaurants such as Nandos, Burger King and Chiquitos (I think).

It is also opposite a Tesco!

As for other hotels, I have stayed at the Marriott V&A which is lovely but expensive, Manchester airport Travelodge (normal travelodge standard), and premier travel inns at Denton and Hyde, which are both further out of Manchester.

There is a nice Innkeepers Lodge at Heaton Chapel with good restaurant/bar attached. This is technically Stockport but it only takes about 20 minutes into Manchester on the bus.

The Thistle in Manchester is one of the worst hotels in Britain .... don't even think about using your deals there. Same for the Ramada Jarvis above the bus station.

Your best bet is a new Holiday Inn Express somewhere, with the ?20 cashback offered through pigsback.

There is a Holiday Inn Express in Bolton which literally backs onto a railway station for trains to Manchester (takes 20 mins or so). Its on the edge of Middlebrook Retail Park ,about 2 mins off the motorway and has a Harvester and an American style restaurant on the same site.

When I can I use Holiday Inn Express for reasonable priced, clean and comfortable accommodation. Their prices also include breakfast. There are often promotional codes around - I've paid as little as ?25 even in London!!! Second choice for value for money is Travelodge - but some of their properties can be a bit 'tired' and no breakfast included. To be honest - paying for a Hilton or a Marriott doesn't warrant the cost - and I worked as a hotel inspector for years - so believe me I know!

Currently ?54 a night including breakfast for four for a long weekend in August without any special offers.

Thankyou so much for all your responses they are brill. Was going to use my deal vouchers but when I saw what was available was quite on the expensive side. May be cheaper for me to sell some vouchers and book with another hotel.
I have only been to Manchester once and that was to see an old boyfriends sister so went straight to her house and then back to Liverpool where we were staying so I have no idea at all whereabouts we would want to stay I was thinking close to the city centre but parking would be a bonus as have the car so dont mind further out.
Will find out whereabouts in the city our best man lives.

Thankyou again.:love:

Hi Guys

I know you are all the font of great knowledge! Are there any deals around that cover hotel & airport parking for Manchester by any chance?

thanks

I wanted to know the same thing for Gatwick, but I don't think anywhere covers parking now. The hotels are minimum 2 night stays and parking can't be included.

Purple Parking is really cheap for Manchester airport - ?12 for 3 days! Sorry don't know about hotels. I'm sat in there at the moment though and I can tell you its chaos - no signposting etc. so leave yourself plenty of time

ALSO train station is next to airport.

have a look at the marriot - they have deals on at the mo for manchester and other hotels

http://www.marriott.co.uk/Channels/globalSites/specialsPackages/detail.mi?country=UK&marrOfferId=371942&emlad=sara.west%40btinternet.com&nck=68283514&ck=301542&trkstart=1&vedate=MAR09&vetype=FMT_mwestwood_301542&veseg=&veof=book&trkend=1

we stayed in the marriot in manchester - it's a shuttle bus away but it was fab and they have rooms that take 4 and they are really spacious - I would highly recommend them

they are not part of deals but the special price isn't bad

Hi

just wondering if anyone has used clubcard deals to book a hotel at Manchester airport, and which would be the cheapest option? Not sure if i am going to drive or get the train.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I got excited when I saw this thread as I'm looking at this option too. I have a Marriott dinner for two award and a spa day award both to use by the end of September. This hotel is one of the options for the spa so thought I could make it a very cheap weekend away.

I'm waiting for virgin to release the train prices so that I can cost the travel there. Would be interested to hear from anyone who has stayed/eaten here.

If you can't find a deal, you might get a cheap room at the Airport Travel Lodge. I've just booked a family room for ?19.

It's not luxury, but we'll be getting there in the evening and getting up at 5am, so we just really need somewhere to wash and sleep!

I stayed in this a couple of years ago and it was very handy, clean and tidy

Make sure you take an alarm clock. When we stayed there we asked for a wake up call at for 5.15 and were told we would get a 'wake up knock' as of course they don't have telephones in the rooms. OH set an alarm on his mobile as a back up and it was lucky he did because we didn't receive the wake up knock!

Thanks.

Hubby just got an iphone and downloaded an application onto it to make it behave like an alarm clock! He's on a course for work next week so he's testing it then! If not, I've got my trusty travel alarm clock that I bought years ago for a silly price like 5 pesatas :D

Trafford Centre is near enough the airport so would suggest a hotel near there so you can combine retail therapy with your business trip.
Plenty of choices for meals in Trafford Centre too :)

Bewleys is fantastic right near the train station cheap and a free bus to take you to the terminals when you fly.

There are loads of hotels all around the airport - all the usual suspects, although I've no personal experience of any of them.

Etrop Grange was/is the most expensive and the company my dh worked for used to put their "most valued" customers in there.

There is a a cheap and cheerful Travel Lodge at Heald Green which is close to the airport, and as others said there are a couple of hotels at the Trafford Centre.

Radison SAS - it's actually AT the airport itself. Access to Terminal (not sure which terminal) is via an indoor walkway.

There's a pub called "The Romper" that is pretty much within the airport boundary (it's on the edge of the airport business park). Google it - very very nice pub, not a chain, proper food, good value for money, good atmosphere (and popular with pilots and cabin crew, or at least it seemed it when we visited!).

will your company put you in an executive room?
If so the crown plaza executive rooms are good, the Raddison SAS is also nice but rooms can be really small.
Etop grange is lovely but only if you feel O.K as a single buiness traveller if the hotel is full of couples for dinner.
Have you considered any of the non airport hotels?
The Lowry is a fantastic hotel and worth the drive to the airport if someone else is picking up the tab,that way you would be in the city centre but only 10 miles away from the airport.

we are due to fly to the dominican republic at easter. we want to drive to the airport but then obviously will have to pay to park.

i was wondering of there were any hotels nearby that offered free parking and maybe a shuttle bus or something similar?

my mum and dad used to live nearby so we just used to park there and get a cheap taxi so it will feel strange not being able to do this.

I went to the Marriot about one mile away for ?79 it was the best ?79 ever, 2 adults 2 children with 15 days parking and we got access to the executive lounge in the hotel with free drinks and free food.

We used holidayextras.co.uk

We have stayed at Hilton and Bewleys and would say Bewleys is very nice and better value for money than Hilton. It did have a free shuttle which we find easy to use. Can't comment on park and ride because we usually use the train, as we have a family rail card.

I cant be much help but I was looking for a one night May room,(not Manchester though) and I was browsing on MSE this morning and someone said that Premier Inn had a ?29 room sale so I got the room I wanted (the same date, same city is ?69 on etap, ?50 on travelodge and ?85 Devere!)

Last time we flew from Manchester we got a good deal for here...think it was hotels.com, basically worked out we got the hotel and parking for the price of 2 weeks parking. Fab hotel as well. Highly recommended, would use it again rven if more expensive than hilton etc.
