Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sherlock7 Very good for a short business stay
I stayed just one night. The dinner and breakfast were very good. The room was very functional, with adequate desk and plenty of electrical sockets. I found the room just a little chilly but found the air con non-intuitive and noisy. I would have liked shampoo to be provided in the bathroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Manchester west
Room service menu very poor .. especially after 10pm. Next to no choice.
TV selection very poor and it also has no usable TV guide which makes it annoying and time consuming to find whats on.
Showers etc show usual black mould... need more attention. Looking dated giving impression of a budget hotel more than what I'd expect from a holiday inn
Executive rooms feel far from executive ..
However staff always friendly and helpful.

My room was right next to a busy road and the double glazing couldn't cope. Very poor sleep if you can say I slept at all. Staff were friendly and attentive but unfortunately the food was poor. I will not stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TimPest Comfortable bed and great service
The staff are exceedingly warm welcoming and a delight to speak with. Though the room was ultimately comfortable, there were some cracked and uneven floor tiles in the washroom. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Broxburnjambo1 Not what i have come to expect
I have been happy to give this hotel a good review in recent times after staying here often in 2015. This stay however was very poor especially the service in the restaurant.
My self and a colleague were booked in for 4 nights. I found no need to book at the table in the restaurant on the first night as having stayed before I have never had the need.
We arrived at the restaurant at 19:15 to be told the restaurant was fully booked until 20:00 although there was only 2 people seated in the restaurant. We decided to eat elsewhere and stayed in the bar area till 19:45 where there was still only 2 people seated in the restaurant. To be told it was fully booked with only 2 people seated in the place was bewildering.
This did not go down well with my colleague and we decided to eat out the rest of the week.
We did however eat in the hotel on the last night, however this experience was again one to forget. We waited nearly 20 minutes to be asked if we were ready to order and again waited 25 minutes for the food. To be in the restaurant over an hour to eat a main course in excessive.
The staff did apologise for the wait but it was little consolation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hardpack12 Not for tourists!
Our work travel agent booked this as I had just asked for an IHG property in "central Manchester". I found myself in this run down area with light industrial units and wasteland around it not sure where I actually was. This is certainly not an hotel for tourists wishing to see the Manchester sights: It's in Salford for a start, and not near trams or trains. I thought on arrival it was actually a Holiday Inn Express but apparently not. I had a double room that was very small, with very dated décor. Internet is unreliable: if you don't use it for a minute or two, it goes off, and even when it was working I struggled to get over 3 Megs if that. Having said that, you can connect as many devices as you like. Breakfast: nobody checking your room card, so must always be included for everyone. The selection was OK with a few items not replenished but no beverage offered by the single member of staff on restaurant duty, she must have been overstretched. The view was of a yard with a builders site next door.
The walls were quite thin, but having had a decent sleep, I was awoken at 0530 by someone walking around in the room upstairs on creaky floorboards.
I could not believe this is a full service hotel; I assumed it was a HI Express (where I have usually been more than happy with the product).
This might be a suitable place if you don't mind travelling into Manchester by bus or taxi as there are no trains or trams nearby, it's about 15-20 min walk to Salford Crescent station. I won't be staying here again.
