Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Sorry Holiday Inn
For the Holiday Inn, albeit the Express Brand, I expected a little more.
The Hot Breakfast selection is limited to three fixed items, and according to the info card on the table, is always Beans, Scrambled Egg and Sausages.
Cold selection was also limited, not enough room to sit and eat
The Air Con in the room never manged to cool either of the two room I booked for may party.
The rooms were very clean the bathroom clean, water hot.
The Sofa bed was a great addtiion to the room, suiting the number of people I booked in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaddyP Good location and helpful staff
Hotel was well located for our visit to Manchester Comicon. Central to the city centre with cheap weekend car parking across the road. Reception staff were very efficient and helpful with any questions we had. Free metro bus stops just outside the hotel. Room was clean and modern. Quieter room than expected for a city centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PHEbusiness Good location, terrible bed
Standard as expected, no fuss, clean and nice.
However, the bed and pillows were terrible and the air con was rubbish.

Great location : close to train station and tram station. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Very helpful staff. Happy to have late check-out at 1 pm. The room is very clean and comfortable. Nice hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave659 My second home
I have been staying here on Oxford Road at least two days a week, sometimes three or four days a week, every single week since January 2013 - it has become my second home.
What can I say?
The staff are great - especially Will and Graham - real gents.
The rooms are, as you would expect from this type of hotel, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and reasonably priced.
If you can, get an "odd" numbered room as these do not overlook the nightclub which, occasionally can be a little "thumpy".
I like odd numbered rooms up on the 10th floor as these are silent.
Parking is easy and cheap and there is a Spar directly underneath that is open 24/7 if you fancy something.
I initially chose this hotel as it is within a 1 minute walk to the place where I have been working whilst in Manchester, although I now use it when I am working at sites other than this local one.
My "go-to" Manchester hotel.
If ever they are full (which indeed does happen - especially when there is some football match on locally), you can be sure to get a room in the Salford Quays one. That's good too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 88 Good for use of free Metro bus
A free No2 Metro bus stop was just outside the hotel. This made travel to the city centre during the day very convenient during the day.
