Bewleys Hotel Manchester Airport
Travel Blogs from Manchester
... we head out to explore.
We just got back from walking around the area near our apartment. We had dinner and the hostess recognized our accents and told us that she has family in Alberta and it turned out that our waitress was from Ontario!!! We needed a travel adaptor for the computer and met the nicest guy ever at the Apple store. He even looked up an ...
... after such nonsense :P So we headed towards the chapel.
The church was a glorious site. After seeing so many churches on my trek so far I had almost skipped it. I was glad I didn’t when we arrived close by because it was a magnificent sight. The ceilings stretched a hundred feet tall with beautiful stained glassed windows, pillars, and very detailed statues. I was rather excited to make the sign of the cross with the holy water as I followed ...
... paths in a similar direction to the day before. We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...
... before coming to the front. The cathedral is huggeeee. Instead it is beautiful with stunning artistry at every corner whether it is in the wood, stone, embroidery or stained glass. We found a little chapel dedicated to Mary and spent some time there listening to someone practising on the gigantic organ. Very beautiful. Once we were done exploring we went up to the very top. Ten floors to the bell tower (which you could look down into) and the you climb 108 ...
... at home with anyone else in the room. This time it was my niece and her boyfriend and his son. The only downside for them was to suffer through a long tutorial on bike racing tactics, ethics and history according to the Gavin brothers. The main event of the day was the ride up to Holme Moss that evening. He will stay there overnight to organize the bike storage at party ...

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!
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.
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.
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.
