We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel. Everything from the service, the food to the rooms were first class. The staff on the information desk were lovely & friendly and helped us find our way around[More] manchester, only too happy to help. Some great pubs & restaurants close by and only 15 mins walk or take the free bus into the city centre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I know when we come to Manchester again, we'll be staying here.[Less]
Excellent Service from the Staff
I cannot say enough about the wonderful service we received from the staff at the Holiday Inn Express on Oxford Street in Manchester. I certainly would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting[More] Manchester[Less]
Good hotel, decent value
Stayed when going out for a meal with my wife in Manchester. Really solid hotel. Decent value, good service, clean and tidy and a good night's sleep.[Less]
Awesome comfortable stay
The room was incredibly clean and tidy, and the staff we're really friendly and welcoming. I would definitely be returning!:)[Less]
Manchester Central Park
Let's start with the reasons this didn't get a higher rating.
A strong smell of paint when you walk in and as you go up the lift or stairs but not noticeable in the rooms and is just a sign of[More] making sure the hotel stay fresh right?
The room itself was the biggest disappointment, 2 beds pushed together to make a double, this is quite common, but the issue here was that one side of the bed the mattress was wafer thin from use and in need of replacement, whilst the other side was clearly less used and therefore not in as bad a condition, still could do with freshening up.
The other down side to the room was the strong smell, similar to body odour, this dissipated once the air-con was turned on and the air circulated for a little while.
Now to the positives...
The food - Quality and quantity - unusual to get both in a hotel but this was a pleasant eating experience both for dinner and breakfast, the bar was well stocked too.
The staff - From the point I entered to check in the staff were amazing! Best service I have received in any IHG hotel! Very friendly, approachable and keen to help![Less]
Very good stay
just a one-night stay. We chose this particular hotel because it was close (walking distance) to the Etihad Stadium. While the rooms were not quite as spacious as those at the HI on The Quays, they[More] were perfectly adequate. Bedding good, beds fine. We did have a minor - I stress, minor - niggle about the AC as we would have liked the room a little cooler. However, as this was just an overnight stay it was not a concern. I am sure we would have been able to sort this out if we had been staying longer.
All the staff we interacted with were brilliant: friendly and efficient.
Wifi worked well.
Breakfast was as expected with a good selection of the usual cooked staples (and omelettes cooked to order, which was terrific) as well as cereal, cold meats etc. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.[Less]
Staff so friendly and Hotel very clean and accessible.[Less]
Breakfast fail- limited gluten free choice
Where was the bacon? Made breakfast a disappointing experience for a coeliac as only sausage available. To compensate gluten free bread available but hardly makes up for missing a full English[Less]
