Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KPR1 Refurbishing the bar area
Stayed here before on a number of occasions and it has always been very good. This time though the bar was closed for refurbishment which was a surprise. When I queried it I was told it was on the website, although I did not see anything when I booked a while ago.. No apology or empathy to the situation was given, this was the bit that disappointed me the most. Because of this it lacked atmosphere so I decided to go outside of the hotel to eat and have a drink. The Hotel bar was moved upstairs to accommodate (small area not very welcoming), but very few people were using it. Will stay again once changes have been completed as its a great location for business and leisure and usually of a high standard for the Hotel and Customer Service.
Breakfast was very good.

A very clean establishment in the heart of Media City. Great restaurants and coffee shops in the vicinity and a short walk to the Lowry Centre. A 15 minute stroll from The Theatre Of Dreams.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pippo33 Great Service from Restaurant Staff
Very good service, especially from Restaurant Staff. Only problem was that our room was not made-up until 17:15 when I brought it to the attention of reception staff. We would have thought that it would have been done before since we left at 09:15 in the morning!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Podster Friendly and helpful staff
Was not impressed with the beds and did not sleep well at all, pillows were lumpy too. Shower was a trickle and not an enjoyable experience.
However on the up side, the breakfast was brilliant, so much choice and very hot. All the staff were amazing, very helpful and diligent. My husband forgot his hair gel and the staff found him some and brought it to our room.
We did not report the problems at the time as we were only there for 2 nights to watch a show at the Lowry.But if we had moved would the next room have been the same?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dbod Great base for Manchester
This Holiday in was perfect for us visiting the Lowry, and given that it is a couple of minutes walk from the tram, excellent for manchester generally. it is bright, modern, good staff, pleasant dining room, good breakfast, secure and safe.
Great location in media city - good walks by the canals and basins, good eating houses.
Just make sure that if you use the multi-istoery car park you get your ticket validated to get the concessionary rate

I wanted somewhere to stay on way to Glasgow. The location was very good and has good links to major shops about 2 miles away. Hotel was clean, good staff service from check in and bar. Had a good room, clean and well furnished. The breakfast was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by balsawood101 So good we stayed twice in a week
An excellent hotel, well located in Media City Manchester. It is a modern hotel with good clean facilities and good friendly staff. We stayed there on way to Commonwealth Games and decided to stay on our way back. We arrived late evening on Sunday night but still in time to get room service on a . This was promptly delivered and was good value.
I would recommend the breakfast.
The only thing to remember is to park in the multi-story car park next door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cushwi Great staff
Can't praise the staff enough - three examples that were good:
(1) the day before my trip, the hotel noticed I had booked 2 x twin rooms and called me to see if I'd like not only interconnecting rooms but also an interconnecting double and twin (ideal for my wife and I plus 2 kids).
(2) reception even accommodated allocating a room for my in-laws - at my request put them close by but not right next door.
(3) The restaurant manager is so enthusiastic ! Regardless of how many times he has explained the buffet breakfast to guests, each time he took the trouble to explain all the options to each party and answer all questions - excellent customer service.
Modern, clean and comfortable hotel with good facilities within walking distance. Only minor niggle, either the vacuum cleaners need to be upgraded or a little more care needs to be taken when vacuuming guest rooms as a few bits not picked up. Otherwise room cleanliness very good.

Fun to be at Media City; Lowry Outlet nearby and theatre/museum Easy access to Manchester on tram and weekend ticket from 6pm Friday is a real bargain. SUPERB Booth's shop (better than Waitrose) next door

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy the one A very enjoyable experiance.
My wife and I really enjoyed staying at this Hotel, primarily because of the staff attitude towards us and the overall cleanliness.
One small problem came to light. However, when reported, genuine concern was shown by the front desk receptionist who immediately took steps to get the problem rectified.
Breakfast, in the green Room was excellent with plenty of staff to keep the "decks clear" and to greet the guests as they arrive. Information was given to ensure we were able to obtain everything we wanted.
I would definitely stay at this Hotel again if or when I needed to. One point of note is that, at the time of our stay, there was a construction site on the other side of the road from the hotel entrance. However, this was entertaining watching machinery and operatives at work. I hasten to add that we did not hear any noise pollution from this whilst at the hotel.

I stayed here both the night before and of my wedding and I was extremely impressed with the quality of this hotel and the friendly staff.
Several of my wedding guests also stayed at the hotel and were full of compliments for the rooms and staff.
The staff went out of their way to ensure that I had a special stay and were especially attentive to any needs I had.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

My daughter and I stayed at the Manchester-Mediacityuk Holiday Inn, we had an excellent stay. We were upgraded to an executive room, which was a fantastic size and quality. Every where was clean with a lovely bathroom and toiletries provided. I had asked for a room with a view and we were on the 18th floor with views over Media city and the surrounding area and hills in the distance.
The breakfast was fantastic with a great choice that would suit anyone. The staff that were in the restaurant were pleasant, helpful and friendly.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and we are going to return to the hotel soon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oakeyone Media City Manchester
A very pleasant stay only ruined on check out.....when a very chilly receptionist, was unable to smile, was abrupt and made me feel uneasy with her manner and process.
Not a happy experience trying to get a refund for something that I did not use and certainly not what I would expect from a Holiday Inn receptionist and being a Platinum member.
Would I use again, of course, but would be careful who checks me out in the morning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by danny1988 Good Location with tram service nearby
The hotel was nice, in a good location and averagally priced. There was issues with clocks in the room (10 - 15 minuites slow), parking (Due to the clocks being slow, we was late and went over the 24 hrs allowed on the car park resulting in additional charges), check out (Requested late check out which was approved for 2.00pm, only to then be woke up by a phone call from reception at 11.00am and a knock on the door at 12.00pm so we decided to just forget it and leave) / check in service (protesters were outside protesting against the BBC - the hotel locked the front doors so we could not get in the hotel!) were a bit of a spoiler but as we had a good time in Manchester and the hotel enabled us to not have to worry about getting home, we did not want to raise any concerns. The hotel is beautifully decorated, room service quality of food was fantastic and is situated in a perfect location to get to Manchester, with the tram service yards away, and a chance to celeb spot with the media city workers on the doorstep!
