"Surprisingly Good Food"
Clean & serviceable facilities typical of the economy division of this national hotel chain. However the staff were very pleasant, service good and, accepting the menu is limited to oven prepared meals, the food was surprisingly good. The Onion Bhaji starter is highly recommended! Location not so good with the exception of a McDonalds & and a modest […] family pub nothing else within walking distance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for the price!"
Excellent stay for families........Very good price!Genuine Expedia guest review
Disappointed that there were twin beds despite my request for a double. Told staff on floor but informed it was not her job so left it as it was, Reception staff polite and professional. Coffee machine run out at breakfast, myself and another customer was told to go to conference room, in the middle of our breakfast & no direction given as to where […] this was! Customer offered to get both coffees as I had just started my breakfast! Ii would have hoped the staff member would have noticed this rather than another customer! On the whole Service ok for 1 night stay. On approaching the hotels more signs would be useful and these need to be bigger rather than the very small sign on the corner. The Larger sign is only visible in the day time and noticed as we were leaving!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good hotel overall"
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room in general was comfortable and spacious. Good choice in the buffet breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok Rooms for a family of 6!"
The sink in our room was very slow at flushing the water through, seemed as it was partially blocked. I think they need to use some Mr Muscle Drain Unblock. Apart from that, the room was fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
Polite and helpful staff nice roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay for what we paid"
Room was okay for what we paid. Better quality condiments would have been nice, shower wasn't very powerful and not immaculate. Stains on the carpet and mattresses on both beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
We have never stayed in one of your hotels before but we will be staying again it was excellent in every way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"EGG BUT NO BACON lol"
Advertise a breakfast however no bacon! You cant have a fry up with no bacon stayed in 2 of these now and both had no bacon!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was a good stay"
It was a great hotel. Rooms were cleaned and quite comfortable bed. But unfortunately on the day of my stay there was some building work going on. And machine was too noisy and disturbed alot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"please keep your breakfast fresh"
The hotel is at conveniant location, rooms were nice, but their breakfast wasn't fresh, as I had this experince before and I mention to the staff member.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
convenient & comfortable, although the neighbourhood is a bit questionable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"consistent with the brand"
The hotel, rooms and service were all what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The breakfast was awful though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to sports venue"
This did the job very well, and the staff were most helpful. x Only thing is the public house on sites stopped doing too early. xxGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not much to say, one Holiday Inn Express hotel once you have been in one you have been in all of them, all look the same, all the rooms are the same (basic), and the breakfasts are all the same ( not very tasty). They want to charge for the internet, and offer you little or no choice on the TV channels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great for odd night for business"
Good clean room, great powerfull shower. Hot breakfast could be better, but still get sausages, beans, bacon,etc but scrambled egg onlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for a budget traveller.."
The staff is very friendly and the room is comfortable. Thank you..Genuine Expedia guest review
Decent place for an overnight stay, bar in hotel with an alternative pub next door with a reasonable menu at a good price so ate their. (there is also a 24 hour McDonalds within walking distance for midnight snacks). Booked it to go see a show at the apollo and while it is reasonably close the taxi fair is quite high (circa £10 each way) for a 5 minute […] ride but the area between the two is not great so transport is recommended. Minor complaint about single beds when a double was requested ( advised I booked a std room not a double) so had to rearrange the bedroom but breakfast was std Holiday Inn fair so ok but not great. All in all if you can get a good price then it is worth it :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Staff - especially on Reception very friendly and efficient. Given a disabled room - when we queried this on checking out we were informed it was because the hotel was very busy and we had booked a double room! Breakfast awful - certainly not worth staying for. Staff nowhere as 'customer friendlly' in Breakfast area. Frequently items were running […] out e.g white bread and guests had to keep asking for replenishment. Good news was that the hotel was very close to the venue we were visiting for the evening. Would not be my first choice again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The walls in this hotel are extremely thin as on the first night we could hear a man in the room next door talking on his mobile phone. The next night was worse because a neighbours TV kept us awake until 3am. We managed to get some sleep until 6am when another room decided to dry their hair and woke us all up with the hair dryer! The breakfast was […] a let down too. The only hot option were sausages, beans and scrambled egg which tasted of pepper. When I asked the staff if there was any other oprion for the hot breakfast, they just said that was the standard breakfast. On the whole we were all very dissapointed with our two night stay and will difinately not be staying there again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"holday inn is always best"
this time bit disappointment, at breakfast croissant wasn't fresh i asked to one the staff member they changed immediately but other tray wasn't nice either, over all holiday inn is preferableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
holiday inn is always nice with good customer service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
located around 4 miles from city centre which was an easy drive. as with most ' budget ' hotels, noise was a bit of an issue in the rooms ( get the builders to put more sound proofing in! ) and i found it very expensive for what it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for families"
Value for money, shame no Bacon for Breakfast, just needed to ask for extra pillows as only 3 , same with mugs only two in room when four of us staying.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine for good value business overnight stay"
The reviews I read before staying here were spot on. The rooms do have thin walls and it is a bit noisy. I was given a twin room (despite wanting a double-however, I had booked via secret savers and am told that there was nothing the hotel could do about that as they were 'fully booked' (in September on a week night?). The breakfast does lack any […] bacon and is poorly attended by staff. I had to ask for sausages to be cooked and then again for bread rolls to be re-filled. It can't be that difficult to monitor the trays and ensure there is enough food out? That said, the breakfast is adequate and good value for the room price. There was no shower gel in the room. Again, how difficult is it for the cleaners to check supplies when servicing the room. I would stay here again on business. Nothing special, but convenient, clean and good value for money. If you are looking for a luxurous relaxing break away - this may not be the place for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice place to stay"
The hotel itself was lovely although the bed wasn't very comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean and well maintained. Only downfall was that it was situated in a bit of a rough area. The pub next door to the hotel was NOT to be recommended and as the hotel offered very little with regards to food our only option (as […] a family), without travelling 2+ miles, was the Mcdonalds. A better restaurant and comfy mattress would have made our stay perfect. The staff were brill and very helpful, no fuss checking in or out!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stopover place"
Got a really good deal at this hotel and we weren't expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was surprisingly good especially as we were expecting to have to go to a franchise place for breakfast. Thanks for a really pleasant stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value hotel"
We just stayed at the hotel for one night. We had a car so free parking was a plus and we wanted somewhere within easy reach by car to the city centre. The hotel fully met these requirements and was excellent value with clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. We ate in an adjacent pub which was good value, but there didn't seem to be many other […] options for eating nearby. We had breakfast in the hotel which was included in the room rate which was an unusual bonus for a budget hotel. Altogether the hotel was good value and a pleasant experience.

"Convenient for Manchester Centre without the Noise"
Hotel was excellent, room was lovely, breakfast was very good and hotel was very clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Easy access to City Centre. No complaints whatsoever. Will definately stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff no problems at all, room clean, breakfast good, we stayed mid week so peaceful and good nights sleep.Pub next door does 2 for 1 food which was OK and not a bad price, It is close to a McDonald's as well, and the hotel does its own evening meal which we did not try. All in all very happy especially for the money you cant go wrong […] we will use this hotel next time we are up in Manchester. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to O2 Apollo Manchester"
Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Family room was big enough for the four of us. Very quiet area, McDonalds nearby and close to bus stop. buses very regular into city centre. 15mins on the bus to O2 Apollo Centre. Breakfast was lovely, filled us up before we headed to the Trafford centre. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was probably one of the most uncomfortable i've slept in. Unlikely to use holiday inn again, really bad sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"does what it says on the packet"
Hotel was fully booked for the night as there was a Cheerleading event at the Velodrome. The hotel was really, really understaffed in the bar/reception area. Staff were very apologetic but extra staff were definitely needed. Breakfast the following morning was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel - but don't go to the pub next door!"
The hotel itself was absolutely fine - clean, comfortable, friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Recommended. The surrounding area isn't very appealing, but the hotel is next to 2 convenient eating establishments - one is a McDonald's (love it or hate it, you know what you'll get), the other is the a pub called "The Bandstand". We decided to eat at the […] pub, as it looked fine from the outside, but ended up having probably the worst dining out experience, ever. This isn't a review of the pub, but if you value your stomach (or any other part your body / soul), I'd definitely stay away from it - stick to the hotel itself and you'll be fine!

"close to manchester monestary..."
great hotel, stayed for two nights while attending friends wedding. breakfast was good and well stocked. the only downside was the shower was not enclosed, meaning the majority of the shower room covered in water! otherwise, great and no major problem. local taxi service good value and reliable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"You get what you pay for"
I am a business woman and need to stay at locations near meetings and events. I would not recommend this for other businesswomen as I had two incidents where male guests, seeing I was alone, made inappropriate remarks. Also, the carpet in the room was badly stained and the room had a musty smell. The staff were the best thing about the hotel as they […] were polite and helpful.

We came along with a child and pet dog. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms pleasant and clean. Breakfast plenty to choose from, could have been a more varied selection for hot options.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2 star hotel at best"
I had a group of family rooms for a team. One of the rooms the keycard opening mechanism was not working and therefore the only lock on the door was the one like a chain- where the door would be able to be opened a few inches before being stopped. Went to the front desk to ask if the room could be changed and their answer was people wouldn't go in... […] Not quite reassuring. After going down a second time they finally agreed to switch the room. The secondary bed (the pull out couch) in some rooms was fine in other rooms it was very dipped and uneven. The walls are paper thin and the door-hallway isn't insulated much better. You can hear all the doors opening at all hours including any drunken people coming and going as well as any nighttime activities. Note quite appropriate for those with young children. It was what was to be expected of a 2 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Holiday Inn Express Manchester East"
A comfortable budget hotel with very helpful staff conveniently situated in a suprisingly quiet location. The rooms were very clean and perfectly adequate. The buffet breakfast, whilst limited in choice, was of good quality and plentiful. The only possible negative was that wifi access was not free. I would certainly recommend this hotel and stay […] there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express Manchester East"
Room was perfectly adequate for one night stay for 2 adults and 2 kids although could have used a couple more pillows. Complementary breakfast was great but tables limited so four of us had to sit round a coffee table to eat while several tables for four were occupied by couples only. it would be much better if breakfast tables were allocated by a member […] of staff. otherwise a great hotel - clean and friendly staff.
