Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AndyBev123 Good location uncomfortable beds.
Hotel is in good location for city centre and you can buy a day pass online for the private gym located opposite which has excellent facilities. The evening food choice is basic but good quality. Main main complaint would be that all rooms appear to be twin beds and come with the added inconvenience of having a fitted base sheet which is to small for the bed and ends up in a mass of tangled sheets which is very uncomfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ashish_UK Comfortable stay and great service
Had a good time at the hotel. The room was tidy and had comfortable beds and pillows. Internet speed was good. The breakfast variety was limited but good. The dining choice in the night was also restricted but made up by a mc' donalds restaurant in the vicinity.

Great location for Manchester and surrounding areas.
Quiet hotel apart from some guests who seemed to forget there were other people around!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kazza61 Another good stay.
As a gold member this was the first hotel ( including overseas) who have offered a bonus for the stay. I rarely ask so it was nice to be offered.
Have stayed here a number of time and been happy.
Staff were helpful when my circumstances changed and my booking had to be altered.

Very friendly and welcoming staff, all areas clean, room tastefully decorated, information about the area and suggestions for days out is available at reception, some of the pages could do with updating but still useful.

I dont usually write reviews but on this ocassion I thought I had to as the service given by the staff at this hotel was second to none. From the time we checked in to the time we left the following day there was not a thing to complain about, the staff were genuinely friendly and there was always a smile (even after midnight).
I will definitely use this hotel again if visiting Manchester for any reason.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Johnni-a Clean & tidy
We found the staff very pleasant & the room spotless & overall the weekend stay was very good, the only gripes we had were the cooked breakfasts consisted of "compo" sausages & beans. The pub next door is a hellhole!!, your met by a large saying" NO CHILDREN" with tiny writing underneath saying after 9pm. The tables were dirty & gangs of youths seem to huddled in every corner, as for the barmaid serving, she had more tattoos than Plymouth navy docks. We didn't stay & went to Nados a minutes away.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gandanga Not holiday inn standards at all
Needs updating, only trolley they have for transferring bags is broken, carpet at entrance a mess, breakfast was the worse I have ever had at a hotel, bed (spring bed) not comfortable. I usually brush aside certain things, but this time, I've struggled to pick a positive, perhaps the staff. They were helpful and available when needed

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Les22 Great value but shame there is no air conditioning
It's the second time we've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express and we would certainly stay there again.
Hot days in Manchester are not that common but the night we stayed must have been the hottest so far this year and air-conditioning would have made things more comfortable.
The welcome from the staff was friendly and professional as on our previous stay. Nothing was too much trouble even when I telephoned to say my wife had discovered that she had mistakenly packed the TV remote control with her clothes.
I would certainly recommend the hotel.

area looks a little run down but was ok but the whole of manchester looked that way to me driving through
is easy to get to off m60

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burns CB over charged and faulty fire alarm
Booked three rooms but charged for three people in each room, when this was pointed out staff didn't know how much I should have been charged, as my Taxi had arrived I didn't have time to dig out my original conformation, they promised to find out and refund to my card, still waiting.
Fire alarm went off three times early morning and was still flashing as faulty when leaving the hotel, staff seemed to think it was funny.
Worst holiday inn in the Manchester area avoid at all cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jon123 Nice hotel
Clean, nice hotel with a good breakfast. Only slight complaint is that - as with many hotel rooms - not enough lighting in the room. Also the 'soft' and 'hard' pillows seemed the same to me. But otherwise comfortable hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miguel S Pleasant stay
My recent stay at the Manchester East Holiday Inn Express was the first occasion that I had stayed at the hotel.
The evening meal food was varied, plentiful and very good and the staff were very helpful, especially Fez. The fixture and use of a Sky Box in my room was much appreciated and a very pleasant surprise.
The only negative relates to the short supply of electric sockets in the bedroom. One socket for the Sky Box and one socket for the kettle did not leave any other sockets to plug in the laptop, mobile telephone and other items that required charging.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aidan21 Great Hotel....shame about the hot breakfast items
Had a pleasant 1 night stay at this location for leisure purposes, all aspects were excellent, apart from the quality of the hot breakfast items which were adequate at best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dr. A Suprisingly good value
Being a Platinum member of the IHG Rewards program, I stay in many IHG hotels. I reserved a room in this hotel due to its easy drive to Manchester International Airport as I was meeting my wife's flight at 6:00am the following morning. I am very familiar with the hotel location as I grew up not 3 miles from there. While the hotel is not situated in the ritziest part of Manchester, the hotel is attractive, clean, safe and welcoming. Rooms are kept to a high standard, the bed is comfortable, bathroom more than adequate and the 'free' breakfast offered plenty of choice. The staff were helpful and attentive. In truth, I anticipated a lot less given the great price I paid for the room and I would most definitely stay there again, particularly if flying out of Manchester Airport. The airport is an easy 20 minutes of mostly motorway cruising and the hotel is super easy to find. Overall, as the title states, surprisingly good value. If this hotel is fully booked, try my other top tip for a great value Manchester hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Salford Quays.

Slightly further out on town (time wise) than anticipated when travelling on the bus but very convenient to save parking and city centre driving. The hotel provided excellent service, comfort and for the price, a good breakfast. Ideal if looking for a low cost stay, especially for a family.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Running Man Clean and comfortable for an overnight stay
2nd time here in a month so no great surprises. Clean, reasonably comfortable, good helpful staff. Does what it says on the tin. My key card didn't work at first but that was sorted very quickly with a minimum of fuss. The room rate was higher this time round so could only give it a 4 for value but that should not necesarily be seen as a negative. I wouldn't see this as a hotel to spend a week in but for an overnight stay (I came up from London to race at Sport City the next day) it's perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Georgina84 Super-Clean Room, Excellent Value, Great Stay
Chose to stay here and share a room with two friends as on a hen night. The room tariff included breakfast and was very good value. Comfy bed, plenty of towels etc but most importantly the entire hotel from lobby, through the corridors and into the room appeared very clean which was impressive. Staff were all friendly and helpful too. Plenty of parking at the hotel and there are some nice little touches such as the ice dispenser in the lobby - perfect for drinks when getting ready for a night out! The breakfast was limited but good (I probably experienced it at its best as I was the first person in the hotel down at 6:30 that morning). The only suggestion for improvement would have been to have provided an extra mug and tea/coffee sachet in the room seeing as we were paying for the room per person.
Thanks for an enjoyable and convenient stay - would stay again for similar visits to Manchester.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Whistleblower Only stay here re: location
I have stayed here twice in past three months & only because of its' location. Rooms all OK but nothing too great. Staff make an effort but again nothing that stays in your mind. Hotel located in a convenient place but surrounding area isn't very attractive/welcoming; not a very relaxing place - OK for business or to just get your head down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrKiko back again the second time in less than 2 months. Great staff!
I tour with bands and I always stay at IHG hotels. I now stay to this one in Manchester. Easy parking, well connected. Great staff. The breakfast is a bit poor, but that's a problem of Holiday Inn express. However even if they serve breakfast from 6.30 am, they prepared it for us at 6 am because we were leaving early!! Thanks a lot!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Running Man Functional but friendly
I stayed one night as I was competing at Sport City the next morning. I booked because it was cheap and convenient so did not have any particular expectations. Was pleasantly surprised by the general quality of service and accommodation... friendly, efficient and clean. For somewhere practical for an overnight stay it's perfect and very good value.
