Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 238 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now for the business trip. I think the hotel is fairy good in overall. I like the 24 hour fitness centre opening as I can go after a long day t work for a bit of workout. The only problem I had is the difficulties in connecting the internet and it is pretty slow too so I have to use my own mobile data.....hope it will get improving on my next visit November 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 room we like an openable window sufficient enough to let in fresh air also very disappointed with the fruit at breakfast, not a lot of choice. Also would like to be advised on current points on this visit. November 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stomp weekend Brilliant one night stay. Should have stayed longer as there was so much to do and see. We stayed last year and was amazed how much has been added to the area. There were more restaurants and bars and also the ice rink and lodge wigwam was an added bonus and a pleasure to use. The hotel was brilliant and felt spoilt to stay there and the Stomp show at The Lowry was amazing and very entertaining. The quayside is brilliant and very clean and no litter. Lots to do and a lovely walk all way round. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean, good service, and breakfast We asked for a jug of fresh milk in place of the UHT packets and room service brought it to the room just as we arrived. No charge either. Internet was free and fast enough, and the view from 14th floor was amazing. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect, apart from slow restaurant The design and quality of this fairly new HI is excellent and customer sevice from reception and bar staff was flawless throughout. This is a great hotel in a perfect location for the nearby attractions (Imperial War Museum etc.) and has a convenient tram stop nearby for getting into the city centre. Only flaw was the slow service in the Marco Pierre White restaurant. The food was good and decent quality but took an age to appear. Aside from that, would have no hesitations in recommending this hotel. November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location This is an excellent hotel with a great location with just a short walk from the tram stop November 5, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reception staff need to cheer up On check in and check out, staff seemed preoccupied and upset - not the welcome you would expect checking in to what was a very good hotel. Bar staff very good and is more like the service one would expect. Also still waiting for my Platinum check in reward points as I did not want a free drink ? November 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What you should expect from a Holiday Inn Overall happy with the experience at this hotel. Rate was good, but only because we had a Sales Conference in the area and made a large block booking, so not sure what the rates would be normally. I would have liked a better pillow choice, but it was comfortable enough. Internet access was a little complex to register and a lot more complex compared to other hotel companies. Also the bandwidth and coverage was not quite so good. The hotel is still quite new, and as long as this standard is maintained, it will be a good hotel to stay at. November 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fun time Really enjoyed our stay, perfect location for Salford Quays and Media city. Value for money and comfortable, good staff October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great restaurant Stayed here as central Manchester was very expensive. Area is pleasant, tram stop near by to get into the city. Staff friendly and food in the restaurant was very good. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A visit to The Lowry We visited Manchester to see an exhibition at The Lowry and on arrival at our hotel we were greeted by a very helpful and friendly receptionist who was called Claire. She gave us a lot of information about the area and the arrival of the Marco Pierre White restaurant opening that night but mainly sorted out my credit card as I could not remember my pin. I cannot thank her enough as she made the process of checking in a breeze. We ate lunch in the bar a salad and soup but that took a long time to come but it was worth the wait. We had a very modern room and it was all so new and clean it was a real pleasure to stay there. The breakfast was well worth the money and again the staff couldn't be more helpful. I am sorry I didn't get the servers name but she was tall and blonde. We had so much choice of food I wanted to stay all morning and it was not too busy either even at 09.30. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel as it is in a lovely area right next door to the BBC and ITV and surrounded by water. The tram into Manchester city takes about 20 mins and that costs £5 per adult for a days usage which we thought was fair. It was a relaxing and quiet hotel so I would stay there next time I visit Manchester. October 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good location for Lowry Theatre Hotel clean, staff courteous. Breakfast was expensive and standard. Beds uncomfortable. But rooms and all areas to a high standard of cleanliness and comfort (except mattress) Good base. i would have preferred to have been in central Manchester and traveled to Lowry on Tram. Would definitely stay at holiday Inn again just not good location for me on this stay October 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great reception staff All was great with the visit as in the survey. I cannot understand however why single rooms (1 person) are charged at the same rate as a double room (2 persons) when I inquired about 3 x rooms for 8th Nov and 4 x rooms for 29th Nov (Man Utd game weekends) October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service The stay was pleasant and relaxing and there were many activities in the area including a theatre and shopping centre. I would recommend to others when staying in that area of Manchester. Take a boat trip also and make the most of your visit; you can call for Gin and Tonic when you are back at the hotel. October 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, but uncomfortable bed The Good: The Holiday Inn MediaCity is in a great location close to the Lowry and War Museum. Its also very easy to get into town on the tram which is very close and frequent. The parking is close and good value (much cheaper than parking in the city centre). Finally, the local area feels very relaxed with nice walks available around the quayside. The Bad: Unfortunately our stay was marred by the bed. The mattress was extremely soft and sagged significantly in the middle. We didn't get a good night's sleep which somewhat overshadowed all the good stuff. Summary: I'd recommend this hotel and probably stay again. I imagine we were just unlucky with the bed. October 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by looks can be deceiving Not quite up to the Holiday Inn brand.More of an upmarket Express by Holiday Inn. Overpriced beverages in the Bar and a very expensive Breakfast Buffet which was cold. Don't order an Omelette from the kitchen as you will get a Frisby with Whole Mushrooms in it. October 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Hotel Good hotel in brilliant location right on the quays. We were on the 16th floor with great views over Manchester and Salford Quays. The room was clean and there was free wifi would highly recommend this hotel. Only down side was the fried eggs at breakfast were hard and when we ask for fresh they came out the same, other than that the breakfast was good. Friendly and helpful staff and we really enjoyed our stay and would definately stay there again. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Love Marco's and Holiday Inn Manchester-MediaCityUK Just opened at Holiday Inn Manchester-MediaCityUK, Marco's New York Italian is now serving food throughout the day. The food is fantastic, Dean the Head Chef and his Team are offering delicious food whilst Francessco and his Team in the Restaurant are delighting us with their service. The food is great value for money, so make a booking soon. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable bed and clean room good service friendly and helpfull staff clean rooms a good location October 6, 2014
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
