Holiday Inn Express Manchester - Salford Quays
Travel Blogs from Manchester
Today wasn't very exciting, It was pretty much travel. We got up, had breakfast in Edinburgh, got packed, and took the three hour train ride south to Manchester. We did go to a bar and grill and watch the Manchester United game, as they played in Wales. They chalked up a big win for new manager David Moyes. We are headed for an early night, as we …
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...

... Tragedy as only 2 years after the Titanic went down but happened 6 weeks before the start of WW1. I have a double family history connection - a great uncle on my mother's side, aged 21 drowned (an assistant steward) and a probable son of a great uncle on my father's side, aged 16 who was a bell boy on the ship. It was a photo of the ship with my great uncle that kick started my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Manchester - Salford Quays
Ok for a couple, but a bit pricey for what you get
Stayed for one night with my wife and 2 kids going to a match in Old Trafford. Small rooms ok for 2 max, a bit too small for any more, reeked of cigarette smoke and I thought quite pricey for £90 a night considering what you get.
Great location for shopping & football
Stayed here with husband and 2 kids - going to match at Old Trafford, within walking distance. Restaurants, shopping centre, cinema all nearby. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sofabeds not great but room, including bathroom, was spotless. Very good value for money. Complementary breakfast was plentiful - even for hungry 15yr old!
Clean and Spacious, good location.
I stayed here for one night and the hotel was easy to find, good parking clean spacious rooms. My only gripe was that my room was near the lift shaft and it was noisey. I would definitley use the hotel again, I will just make sure the room is away from the lifts next time.
Would use again
Ideal hotel for Old Trafford - father/son on football trip - Very Good Standard Hotel - 97 euro for a twin room - very clean and fresh rooms - offered free continental (eat what you like) breakfast on day of arrival (we were at hotel at 9 am and couldn't check in until 2 pm). This was a good start to the day - The hotel is 15 mins walk to Man Utd's ground - in a very nice part of Manchester with its canals - good restaurant (the Quays) nearby. Easy access by metrolink from city centre - Very helpful friendly staff , would easily recommend .
I've been there two different times.. and both I've found a clean and easy-to-reach hotel, perfect for business traveller, but also for people with low-budget..
The rooms were clean, not too little and not too big.. no noise in the night, easy access for everyone.. As always in this hotels, probably the staff is a little bit annoyed, and not very "warm" in their welcome.. but, for the price, this is was I was expecting..
Good clean hotel, friendly & helpful reception, easy walk (even for children)
to Tram station, Lowry Outlet Mall (which has a cinema), Imperial War Museum which is well worth a visit and Old Trafford Football ground. Few restaurants within easy walk too. Self-sevice continental breakfast - very good. Would use again.
Very nice hotel
I stayed in this hotel last year (and have stayed in a number of Express by Holiday Inns around the country) and found this very pleasant. Rooms were immaculate, with modern furniture, lovely bathroom, and towels as and when you wanted them (put used ones in bath). Complimentary breakfast very nice, and lots of choice i.e yoghurts, pain au chocolat, croissants, toaster with bread provided, cereal fruit and a range of coffees, teas, hot chocolate and fruit juices. Staff very pleasant, the only drawback was it was £70 per night, but if you book on the internet you do get a discount.
Stayed on new years eve, my flight was delayed so arrived a bit late at the hotel. Girl on check-in could not find my reservation (very nice girl), she had to get her Duty Manager, a very rude, arrogant and unproffessional girl. I explained her that i was running very late and had dinner arrangment, so couldnt't she just book me into a room, i had my email confimation with all the booking details. She ignored me so i repeated myself, then looked at me and compleatly lost it, told me to be quiet so she could get on with finding my reservation and it was not just me running late and had arrangment, she had to work till 11pm. i thought, my god. i just sat down in the lobby and waited (20min). she finally found it and checked me in, no "i'm sorry for keeping you waiting" or nothing. Next morning the same girl Checked me out and stil very rude towards me and other guests (and some of the staff). it was a very nice hotel, but because of her i will never stay with them again.
Good Basic Accomodation
Have stayed here a couple of times as our office is nearby. Good clean modern hotel but only a few facilities. There's a bar but no real resturant, although a 'continential' breakfast (very good) is included in the price. Rooms are reasonable size , no bath but good sized 'walk in' shower. If you want to eat locally there's at least 4 'chain'resurants nearby offering a reasonable choice otherwise central Manchester is 15
minutes by tram. If arriving late be warned that the local resurants stop serving at 9:00 pm! With this hotel you get what you pay for and I've no compliants!
I was forced to stay here because my business trip coincided with some Government meeting in town and a Manchester United Game (the pitch is visible from the hotel). This was apparently "the last room in the city" according to my travel agent, and I was shockingly impressed.The room was standard size to small, but for my purposes, it was fine (I was by my self). The Reception was polite though inefficient (I ordered a cab, and then cancelled the cab but the cab still came? and I am still not sure if I got point on my frequent travel card)Bed was fine; heater in room was nice as there is no other temperature control. Room was quiet.The breakfast was good and plentiful the rooms were clean the plumbing was good. The have a small bar downstairs, however not much more then getting a beer to watch the game or a nightcap. There are some ?big-box? type restaurant a short walk away, other then that you are going to have to get on the tram (though the tram station is close)No fitness room, which would be nice for such a small isolated hotel,
