Having recently had an over night stay at the holiday inn salford quays, i found this really pricey, hence it was the manchester run and magic weekend this i feel the reason to over charge.!! On arrival i booked a double room, only to find i'd been given a twin. Rang down to reception where they were helpful and said come back down we will put you up in your desired double. Having done so i went to my new room only to find it was a twin again, obvieously frustrated by now i wanted this sorted. So eventually an hour later i get my double room at the third attempt. My partner was very upset by this with her not really feeling well after our 3hr drive down.
I also again found the breakfast half hearted there was no bacon on the cooked breakfast, nor was there hash browns or tomatoes or mushrooms!!! To be perfectly honest it was sausage, beans, rubbery scrambled egg, and toast. Same with the continental where i didnt see a yoghurt in site. Overall experience was very disapointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greystone Good location and excellent service.
Great location, on canal and close to Old Trafford football ground and Media City whilst only a short tram ride into city center.
We went to watch a concert and do a spot of sightseeing.
The hotel was very clean, comfortable and with good decor. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful.

Room and staff were, as usual of a high standard.
However the breakfast was a different matter.
We started using HIE a number of years ago, and one of the attractions was the 'continental' style breakfast.
More recently, HIE have introduced a cooked element to the breakfast, the quality of which is poor. Powdered eggs, sausages of dubious origins and baked beans. I would rather the money spent on these items was used to increase the quantity/quality of the cold items available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PriorityClubMember101 Good location and convenient
We stayed for 3 nights. Location is perfect because it has a huge parking space and conveniently located close to the tram. The tram takes you everywhere in the city and it only cost 5 pound for the whole day. Breakfast was good. It has almost everything for a typical english breakfast except bacon.
The reason why i gave my room a 4 stars is because the toilet has some little urine odor. It is clean, don't get me wrong but had to keep it closed because of the some weird scent. It is still comfortable and please stay in this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marion T Friendly and comfortable hotel
The hotel staff were friendly and courteous and helped out by booking taxis for the family to get to our daughter's wedding on time. Pleasantly situated at Salford Quays the hotel is handy for The Lowry and Media City. It was a very good experience staying with you and I won' hesitate in recommending The Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsBoo Excellent stay!
We had an excellent experience during our recent stay at this hotel. The only comment I would make is that it would have been nice to have had bacon on the breakfast menu, not everyone likes a continental breakfast but apart from that everything else was great and the location is really really nice. It is the first time we have stayed in Manchester but we will definitely visit this lovely city again and this hotel will be the one we stay at

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QD24 This hotel always gets it right.
I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Salford Quays on several occasions. Each time, I've been impressed by the high standards of service, cleanliness and the very comfortable rooms. The staff are, without exception, welcoming and friendly, and will do their best to make your stay a pleasant one. It may not compare with the imposing grandeur of the best 5 Star hotels that I've visited, but that's not the point.
I look forward to staying there again in future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rp58 Wonderful service great facilities
First time we stayed here, would recommend the hotel to anyone.
First impressions are important especially at a hotel that you have not stayed at before and the greeting we received at reception was excellent, friendly, informative, and helpful, made you feel welcome.
Room excellent, clean, tidy.The shower television. bed of a high standard.
The breakfast was very good with plenty of variety and it made a nice change not to have a full cooked breakfast.
Loved the facilities at the vending area.
The bar area was very comfortable and the area around the hotel is lovely down by the water.
Overall we must give the hotel 9 out of 10.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dansgirl Clean and Comfortable Hotel
Enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Express, was ideal for my trip for a concert at The Lowry Theatre which was so near. Plenty of shops to look around too at the Outlet Mall. The hotel was spotless, and very comfortable. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The metro tram was an easy walk to get to from the hotel which provided transport into Manchester City. Reasonably priced. Can recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robwxmfc Ideal Place for visiting Mannchester
Stayed when visiting Manchester for a show at the Arena. Ideal location just a few minutes drive to The Trafford Centre, Old Trafford and The Imperial War Museum. Also just a few minutes walk from the nearest Metro station to catch the Tram in to the city centre. We had breakfast in the morning which although busy food was kept topped up. At night we went out to Chiquito Mexican restaurant just a short 5min walk away and the food was superb. This hotel is in a great location.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Club Member2014 Convenient location - dining near by - Bathroom floor an issue
Warm welcome on arrival, details pre populated simply sign agree to pay the £3 parking charge, put in your vehicle registration number and then off to the room.
Went out locally for meal, lots of choice, came back to watch the football.
Several people in the lounge area that had bought in thier own food which they cooked in the hotel microwave area - the aromatic quality was not great and lingered all evening.
2 x Televisions in the lounge area, both opposiite each other (back to back) whilst there is a partition you have to watch the same channel.
In terms of the room every thing was in order apart from lots of hair on the bathroom floor and what looked like specs of blood which I instantly cleaned which was far from ideal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MPerk Drowning noise through the night
Unfortunately there was a droning noise all night, this was due to the generator being 6ft from our window also the room we were given had an additional door which led to another room which I could have gone through and stole the other customers phone and iPad which was left on the side.
But left me a little uneasy as they could do the same to me so I ended up placing furniture in front of this door but this still made me not sleep very well as I was conscious of this.
Staff were ok and food was ok too
Would not stay here again :-(
