Have stayed at Express by Holiday Inns before and they are generally good value for money. A clean, modern room, comfortable bed and good lighting. Staff were friendly and helpful.. All you really need .Breakfast was good and plenty of it. The room was a bit on the small side but quite adequate. Good location. There are a few eateries...

Wet weekend in the main. Stayed at Salford Quays because of ability to park outside the hotel but also have the benefit of tram travel into the city centre. Good location not only for the city but also Old Trafford and the Trafford Centre.

I was just looking for somewhere to lay my head as I was in Manchester for a symposium. The Holiday Inn Express brand is quite good but fairly basic. Nevertheless it filled my needs on this occasion. The room and bathroom were clean but I was stunned when I walked in to find that there was a second double bed...

This hotel offers the basics you need of a hotel at an affordable price. The rooms are nice and clean and well maintained. The breakfast is good with hot and warm selections - and complimentary. "Room Service" means going down to the reception to pick up what you want. I just wish they had some trays available to carry the...

Stayed here for the night after visiting family/watching a match.. Lovely welcome, informed of everything that we needed to know on check in. Room fine for the four of us. Lovely breakfast and staff. On closer inspection in the morning the bed bases looked stained but we had used them by then so hay-ho! My daughter left her skirt there...

Accidents might happen but it's how you act in that situation is how you separate the best from the ordinary. Standard, breakfast, room size, yes everything is according to normal Holiday Inn standard. However, my night sleep was interrupted at about 2 am with a running faucet in the shower. No real danger for flooding but still noisy and disturbing...

A clean, modern & efficient hotel. Very friendly staff, although the basic the food is of good quality, the rooms are immaculate, the wi-fi is free and fast (and quick to sign into too - no need to register etc). And havimg stayed in London the previous week, this place is exceptional value!

We stayed here as a family visiting the Lowry gallery. On a Friday two rooms were £108 including breakfast. We went on a weekend when Man United were away - it's very near the ground and I guess it is busy and more expensive when they are at home. Rooms ere standard Holiday Inn Express. Everything worked and the rooms...
