Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 219 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Convenient The location was very convenient for our visit to Salford Quays. The hotel was well presented and the staff were extremely helpful. October 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A need to sharpen up One feels that the hotel is a little complacent as it will be filled by business travellers who need to be near the studios and the expectations of the 'leisure' traveller are not met. October 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great weekend destination We chose the Holiday Inn at Media City for our College reunion. It was the perfect location with plenty to see and do and easy access into the city centre by tram. All the staff were friendly and helpful : they couldn't do enough for us and made our 40 year reunion very memorable and successful. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect location The Holiday Inn Media City is situated in a perfect location for both business and pleasure. A very comfortable and welcoming hotel with friendly and knowledgeable staff, a great place to relax after a hard days work. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Manchester for business or pleasure, with the surrounding area giving a good reason to stay an extra day or two. September 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Media City Hotel decor has been changed but the bar area is now not as welcoming it seems crowded now that fixed seating has be put in place The variety of draught beer is not as good The lighting in the bathrooms needs upgrading as there is no where light enough to put on make up September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good overnight stay We had an overnight stay with my parents on the 18th-19th September 2014 and overall the stay we fine good clean room plenty large enough staff were friendly and attentive. Bar area was a little bit untidy and when we went for an evening drink we could not find a suitable table that we clean of plates or used glasses. Also my mini bar in the room was locked ? Overall though a good short stay. September 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LUXURY IN THE HEART OF MEDIA CITY Excellent hotel, a little pricey but you get what you pay for as far as facilities are concerned. Breakfast could be better, if you like soft eggs as my partner does, this is not the place for you however as a vegetarian I was impressed that veggie sausages were available. Our main gripe was sleep quality, we had under counter lighting in the bathroom which couldn't be turned off and a glass bathroom door meant that we were awake most of the night disturbed by the light. However, all things considered I would stay at this hotel again and thought it was extremely comfortable. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Media City Media city and its hotel Holiday INN was superb,,, September 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No Low floor rooms The rooms at this hotel begin on the 8th floor. The floors in between belong to the BBC.The hotel I understand is 16 floors high September 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn MediaCity A comfortable, convenient hotel close to local amenities. The staff are attentive and willing to help wherever possible. September 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by probably the worst in the group An.arrogant and complacent management allow the continued poor service at this bed and breakfast. I have probably stayed over 200 times,at IHG and quite a few in this establishment. Check.in.was poor, room service again.would not answer phone. Reception ate extremely unwilling to help, and frankly rude, when.phones divert to them. Waiter brought food to room and said he was delighted to be on.his last day as it was a terrible place. He dropped a glass of wine on.my.floor and none of his colleagues would bring him another. So I had cold food soaked in.wine left for twenty minutes. I asked the receptionist to get a manager to call.me. They have my details. What's odd? They never called. Do.not stay here. Awful in every way. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Weekend Stay Stayed here for a wedding in August , the staff were very friendly and helped us greatly when we were delayed. September 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel and location My husband and I stayed for one night, the location is great, accessible to the city by tram £2.70 per person or taxi £10. You are located by the lowry shopping center and media city. The hotel is comfortable, the rooms very well decorated with a mirror and good lightening ! Off site car parking in multi story £7.50 for 24 hours September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely Hotel The hotel appears to be very new and therefore some building work was ongoing in relation to the Lounge Bar however this was communicated perfectly well on arrival and the 'temporary' location was also pointed out and was more than adequate for our weekend needs. The staff were consumate in their professional attitudes and at the same time extremely personable, overall an outstanding stay in the outskirts of Manchester. August 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good location and staff Overall, a pleasant stay with good staff and attentive service. However, pillow quality needs to be looked at as they appear cheap. When alterations are being carried out ,customers should be informed in advance and the price should reflect this. The makeshift bar/lounge area was exactly that, makeshift.! August 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good location Chose the hotel for its location near Lowery.Reception staff efficient and friendly, great room and comfortable. Excellent Breakfast in attractively furnished dining area. Only drawback was finding the car park entrance which took a while-it is in the multi-story above Bookers and then you need to decide what Long and Short term stay means. (why not put Less/more than 24 hours?) August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent again The staff are one of the hotel's assets. From the front desk to the restaurant the staff are very attentive . Special mention to Luke and Vincent in the dining room and Vincent's team ,they are excellent in their roles. The one and only negative is that Reds have lost on both occasions when I have stayed here, I'm sure the hotel would try to offer a solution if it were in their remit. I have booked again for the 27th September I hope the result on the pitch is as positive as the experience received at the hotel. Well done to all and keep up the good work. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for Lowry Theatre Stayed for one night for visit to Lowry Theatre. Great location. very clean and comfortable hotel. Very good breakfast. Clean rooms. good bathroom. Our second stay for a theatre visit. Metro to city centre nearby. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pleasant stay very friendly helpful staff. Nice room and bathroom, good view. very convenient position. Very relaxed stay, but not very comfortable bed. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Gem in The Quays 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. August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel Excellent and convenient for shopping and local transport August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! August 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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? August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Media City Another great stay at the Holiday Inn at Media city. August 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel Comfortable and clean hotel would visit again for both business and pleasure. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Overall we had an excellent stay, The area of Salford Quays is very well located especially if shopping August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 August 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Glad I booked 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. August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 9, 2014
