TravelPod Member ReviewsBewleys Hotel Manchester Airport
The rooms are fine, the bed and pillows really comfortable. All a little basic but it does what it says on the tin. It is very handy for the airport and the staff are very nice.

Historical Traveler Reviews Bewleys Hotel Manchester Airport
Best Value in the Area
The location is very near Manchester airport, and was very convenient for an early-morning flight. The room was very clean and somewhat spacious. And the 59 GBP room rate was quite good for the area.
However, nothing in the hotel is air conditioned, and the restaurant was VERY hot at dinnertime. The food was just OK -- nothing extraordinary.
We had to wait almost an hour to be picked up from the airport, and had to pay 3 GBP for a ride back to the airport, which leaves every 30 minutes.
We'd probably stay there again, as long as it wasn't in the summer.
Very basic hotel, poorly decorated. The food in the restaurant was just average with not much to choose from, and the hotel bar was very small and limited. The room was quite small but clean. The furniture was outdated and dirty looking. On the plus side, the desk clerk was very helpful with information and always cheery. I was surprised also that there was a fee to ride the shuttle to and from the airport which is basically across the street.
I stayed at Bewleys after landing in Manchester, to catch up on my sleep before starting off the next day. It was amazingly quiet, even tho construction was going on. Staff were very helpful, supper in lounge was fine. Their shuttle passed me, so they told me to take a cab and they reimbursed the 2gbp fare.
Bewley's - You won't be dissapointed
The Hotel was was above average in every respect. The breakfast was outstanding and the expresss checkout was very convenient. The price was very reasonable with respect to its airport location. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying near the airport in Manchester.
Great value and confortable
My wife and I stayed there for the night before our trip to Rhodes. I was a little concerned reading the reviews but I can say with honesty that we had a relaxing, and QUIET night. The only noise we heard was when another couple left the hotel. Our room was above the front door and the noise came from the wheels of the luggage.Ok we were lucky because we had been to manchester before and knew we could walk to treminal 1 in 3 minutes. The staff were polite and informative and willing to help with the numerous queries we had.They have a major building work in progress and have some concerns about the noise level in the future with the increased customers.Will have to wait and see.DH
I spent the night before my flight at the Bewleys hotel, and would not stay here again. When I checked in I was irritated to find out that I had already been charged for the room at the time I made the reservation. Then I learned that there's a 3 pound charge for the shuttle bus run that's little more than a couple of blocks from the terminals. On the plus side, there was a bathtub and a decent bed. The room itself wasn't bad. But, holy moly was it NOISY!!! I tried to go to sleep early since I had to get up at 3 AM ... and I doubt if I got more than 20 consecutive minutes of sleep before midnight. Every door slammed with a loud bang, the pipes made noise, I knew when everyone around me went to the bathroom etc etc etc. UGG!
Excellent value - best near the airport
We stayed here before departing on an early flight and found the hotel to be excellent. I have stayed in many hotels around Manchester airport and honestly this is superb especially considering the price. The room is very well equipped and comfortable - quiet and a good bed. We ate in the restaurant and again could not fault the service or the food. My daughters enjoyed the carvery very much. The car parking was included in the price (8 days) and it worked well. You park at the hotel, give the keys to the receptionist at check in, and your car is then driven to a secure parking area just outside the airport. On your return a bus picks you up and takes you to your car. Its literally 5 minutes away.
The bus service to the terminals run every 30 minutes around the clock and again worked like clockwork. I will ALWAYS stay here now when I travel from Manchester. Have paid over twice as much to stay at the Hilton which is next door and is no better at all. I was travelling from terminal 2 but if it had been terminal 1 or 3 in all honesty I could have walked especially if I had little in the way of luggage.
Good Airport accommodation
I have always found this an excellent airport hotel. Clean, efficient and well-run. Good restaurant. Recommended.
I have to disagree with the review I have just read on this site regarding the Holiday Inn Garden Court at Manchester Airport. This gentleman obviously did not take the time to listen to the receptionist, enough to understand, which is understandable if he arrived feeling tired and just wanted to go to bed. I have never been asked to go to reception to fill in a card with my credit card number to utilise the express checkout facility as it clearly stated on the keycard holder to write the number on this card and hand it in to reception on departure. My experience has always been good and since Bewley's Hotels took over earlier this year it has got better and better. As a holiday Inn this hotel was always clean and comfortable. Ideal when I was staying for one night.This hotel is now called Bewley's and everything seems to be improving. The prices certainly are, I used to pay in excess of £75.00 without breakfast but the rate is now £59, even for an executive room and I have never eaten a breakfast like here, for so little. The staff are very friendly and eager to please, service in the restaurant is a bit slow but can be busy. Overall I have seen such an improvment in this hotel that I recommend it to all my colleagues both here in the UK and in the US. Don't listen to the gentleman above, try it and see who is correct.
Would Not Stay Here Again
I was very unimpressed with the staff at this hotel. On check in I enquired about airport transport as I had an early 5 am check in. The girl on the desk stated yes there were buses that ran every half hour from 3.30am. The girl also swiped my credit card.
I then returned my hire car, had some food and retired for the night. I was about to go to sleep at 10pm when I noticed my little rate card I was given at check in. On the back of this card it stated for express check out fill in credit card number and RETURN TO FRONT DESK!!! I phoned down to reception and stated that I wanted express check out but did not want to have to get dressed and go back downstairs(remember my card was already swiped). I was told by an unfriendly member of staff that yes I would need to return the card to the front desk. I asked why this was not pointed out at check in (would have been courtesy after all) and was told ' we dont tell people this'(her exact words!!!!) WHY?
Next morning I handed in my door keycard at front desk and was walking away (my bill had been paid overnight) and the receptionist shouted 'what room are you in?' I told her I'd paid my bill, she said I still need your room number? I told her and she then said there is a charge for the airport bus £2.50 each!!! I was absolutely furious and asked why this had not been pointed out to me at check in(after all I had enquired about the bus)
she told me all the details are in your welcome letter in your hotel room....WHAT WELCOME LETTER, there was nothing in my room!! I had thought at the time I entered my room what little information was given about the hotel facilities etc. The journey from Holiday Inn to Terminal 3 is so short I would have been better walking it AND the buses do not have facilities for everyone having suitcases. As it was there were in excess of 20 bags and only space for 3, I have the bruises still to prove how difficult(let alone unsafe) it was to get my cases out. I was unfortunately the only person with my son getting off at the first terminal 3 stop. I am a very fit and able person - if you were not there would have been further problems. AVOID this hotel if you really can - I wouldnt be surprised if hotels a little further away offer better rates, transport and service. The staff need further training urgently.
