My husband and I stayed here when going to watch a concert at Manchester Arena. The location of the hotel was great, in the popular Northern Quarter district of the city centre, close enough to the many bars and restaurants but not too close to be disturbed by noise. On arrival the reception staff were friendly and attentive and this...

This is actually one of the better HI Express weve stayed in, modern with above average decoration. If you can actually find it you'll probably like it. it only gets a poor rating because of where it is. Honestly it's horrible. A real shame because otherwise we would have rated it good. There is no parking except a pay one...

Booked a 1 night break the day before travelling. I was 1st impressed after emailing requesting a 'room with a view' only mins later got a response advising we had been allocated the top floor with views of the city. We arrived early and although told our room wouldn't be ready until 2 pm staff were happy to take and...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last weekend. We found the hotel spotless , the beds comfortable with large rooms. The provided breakfast was very good ( unlike some of the reviews I have read ) plenty of good quality and nicely cooked bacon and sausage , even the machine coffee was quite nice. On the down side...

Holiday Inn is situated in the middle of the city centre of Manchester. Perfect for a trip to Old Trafford (lots of Man. Utd. supporters). Service is good and breakfast is standard. The breakfast restaurant a bit crowded.

Stayed here last night for a visit into Manchester. The wife had booked two rooms at £199.00 each. Reception staff very welcoming and helpful. Car parking across the road for an additional £5.00 which was very convenient. The rooms were on the top floor (8) and although nicely decorated were rather small. Constant corridor noise through the night. Breakfast was...

After being disappointed by Holiday Inn Express Oxford Road Manchester the previous weekend it was with some trepidation that I visited here with friends. It couldn't have been more different. Reception was great, rooms were lovely, spacious and modern, breakfast was brilliant with plenty of choice. Staff were very helpful and location was so easy from Piccadilly Station and the...

Stayed for one night on a girls night out. Check in quick and easy given a room on the third floor. Really clean very modern with comfy bed and a lovely walk in shower in the bathroom. Good hair dryer in the room saves bringing your own and the rooms are really soundproof which I found was great due to...

Great location for a number of tourist attractions including the Arena and Arndale Centre. For cat lovers it is directly opposite the Cat Café which is just as it sounds - a cafe with cats! The staff at the hotel are welcoming, the room was perfectly comfortable with soft beds and lovely bathroom facilities. Parking is available at a number...

Stayed here for the Strictly Come Dancing Tour. Initially was quite impressed. Nice square outside. The cat cafe is a novelty nearby but sad to say the hotel disappointed. The room was a bit battered. Paint required and stains. The bathroom was good. Same old complaint about HIEx and their rubbish towels! Nothing new there. The bed is fine. The...

Dear Cheryl U We would like to offer you our apologies, as I was very disappointed to receive your feedback and the comments regarding the breakfast during your recent stay with us.
