... and told to go right and it should be right there. We hunted around a bit looking very much like lost tourists with our full sets of luggage but we found it and we are settling in now. We are all VERY tired since none of us slept on the plane. I've made a cup of tea....since I am British for the week that seemed like the first thing I should do...and we are resting for a short ...
... and as it gurgled in my stomach I was reluctant to expel any gas. I was scared that the sound of a squeaky **** might turn every head in the place towards the fresh meat sitting alone by itself on the sofa in the corner! I walked out after a while to warn the security guard she would return without any documentation that she was staying here with hands full of beer. I enjoyed the view over the canals as the men kept coming by and greeting me. This was going to be an ...
... It took longer than planned because of the trail signs being difficult to following in places and with panniers on it is near impossible to get a bike through the gates on trails that have been put in to stop motorbikes. We are rethinking the pannier bags for the rest of our ride through the UK. We are considering cutting down to one each and sending the others through to meet us in Copenhagen. The next few days we are in and around ...

There was bunting and yellow bicycles galore and every pub seemed to have a "jovial" crowd getting ready for the next day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel
My kids and I stayed here on a saturday night while visiting family in the area. After the long drive from London we were tired and not really looking forward to this hotel .We always find it hard to find somewhere decent in the area..we are.. I am afraid to say ..hotel snobs, especially the kids!
Too far away!
Stayed here for a week for business. Big rambling hotel, as the others have said, but comfy marriott beds and a nice pool/gym area. Not walking distance to the airport, so no real reason to stay here unless you are a point junkie like me. Nothing special overall.
We stayed here before flying out from Manchester Airport. Yes the hotel is ten minutes drive from the airport, however they do offer a very efficient airport service. We had what they call an executive room. which had recently been completely refurbished. We wanted a good nights sleep before leaving on holiday and that is what we got. The hotel was quiet and the bed was of a high standard. The room was very clean and the breakfast next morning was comprehensive and no better or worse than any other Manchester airport hotel.
Stayed here for 1 night to catch an early flight the following morning, and had a rate which included 15 days parking and return shuttle transfers to/from Manchester Airport.
stayed at this hotel many times dut to business and have the following observations.
Had previously stayed here and been given a suite which was great.
However, upon my return, had a standard courtyard room. Nice if a little small. BUT THERE IS NO SOUNDPROOFING. I could hear my neighbours talking, coughing, going to the toilet etc. Doors banged all night, and then someone woke me up at 5am, so not a great night's sleep.
Gym and pool are great though.
Restaurant good too, if a little expensive. Lots of choice for breakfast.
Players restaurant even better, but can't charge bills to room.
So a mixed bag. If you get a nice quiet room, should be a good stay. Otherwise, make sure you have earplugs.
Stayed at the Marriott Hotel (the old Four Seasons Hotel) on business for one night (thankfully!) Hotel is going through some refurbishment - covered in scaffolding and building equipment. Very difficult just finding the entrance from the carpark - could do with some signs showing the way to reception. When I found reception it was slow. Only one member of staff on duty (or serving) which caused quite a queue.
You Can Do Better!
This is not a great Marriot. It has a very rambling layout which leaves most rooms very far away from the lobby. Its location is not particularly convenient to the airport and it is totally isolated. The service was at best so-so with the restaurant very slow. The room was okay but not user friendly. They charge for everything including 1.5 pounds for an 800 telephone call. There is no Internet connection available in the room. You will do much better with the Radisson or Hilton which have much better locations to the airport.
Booked in here after leaving the Princess Hotel quickly (see my separate review) and couldn't have ben happier with the place.
Reception was quick and professional. The room was great - huge comfortable bed, nice decor, immaculately presented and all of the facilities and extras you'd expect - will definitely recommend it.
Gym facilities leave a lot to be desired. Hotel rooms are very poor in standard. Staff are friendly and courteous.
