Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovelysweetpea Decent hotel, though watch out for parking charges
Have stayed at this hotel before and once again had a good stay. The only downside was the long time to get served at the bar following an evening out. They only had one girl serving, which was inadequate for the demand for drinks, as a lot of residents had all returned from the same event at Old Trafford. Also hadn't realised there is now a parking charge - not huge, but a bit annoying

I was very impressed with the location of the hotel over looking the Quays. IT was nice to wake up in the morning and see people having a swim in the quays and all the activity going on in the various clubs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kevinthefisherman Convenient location and attentive staff
Hotel is in a good location for visiting many of the sights. Impressive waterfront location with half the bedrooms and the lounge area facing the quayside. It lacks a restaurant, but there are plenty of eateries in the area. Bedrooms are adequate with choice of firm and not-so firm pillows (not soft enough for me - but hotel pillows never are!). My rooms have always been clean. Parking tip - if using the car park, make sure the receptionist keys in the corrent number of nights or you may get a hefty parking charge in the post.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jade1234 Very friendly and helpful staff! :)
Myself and a friend stayed at this hotel when we were going to a concert at the MEN Arena. We booked it not realising how far away it was from the arena (we had no car with us!)... However, there was a taxi rank near the Media City which was very helpful for us!
The room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Although there wasn't a huge variety to choose from at breakfast, it was all very nice anyway!
I would stay here again, but bring my car with me next time!!! :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chocbrownie26 Very comfortable room and friendly staff
On arrival the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely very quiet clean and everything we needed was there. I liked the choice of pillows which meant a great night sleep. Location was great for a concert at the Lowry and being near to the metro easy to get into the city centre. Breakfast was lovely. Good choice of hot and cold food.

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.

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.

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.
