Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stu2013 Staff make all the difference
As a Holiday Inn Express goes this one isn't atypical, apart from the receptionist Joanna who was nothing short of brilliant.
After a long and terrible day, she made me feel welcome and a very valued customer. She should be particularly congratulated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnHR Great place to stay
We were a party of 10 and all of us were very pleased with the hotel. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful, bedrooms well-appointed and absolutely clean, breakfasts good, car-parking plentiful. This hotel is excellent value for money. In addition it is well-sited with lovely views overlooking the Quays, accessible for all the activities there and just a 5 minute walk to the MetroLink into Manchester. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area and we shall always consider Holiday Inns when looking for a hotel.
Thank you very much to everybody at the Holiday Inn Express at Salford Quays.

The staff were courteous and attentive.
I would recommend the hotel strongly,
P.S. No money or favours have been exchanged for this review!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ace226 Great for a few nights
Stayed here at the end of September, great location and close to the tram station. There is a Frankie and Bennys close by with a Mexican restaurant and hungry horse pub too.
The room was comfortable and I had a lovely view. There is ample parking as well and the staff were very helpful with a few issues I had.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by twinkletoes3 birthday treat
A suprise last minute birthday treat for the hubby the hotel was located near to everything we required on the waterfront..A friendly & warm welcome by all staff. Breakfast was varied with No bacon however you could help yourself to the rest of the low key and hot food or a great selection of cold food, fruit etc with lots of varied drinks. The hotel was spotless the car parking fee was good for us we walked everywhere & ate near by. Good lounge reasonably priced drinks. Our only moan would be the single beds but we had booked few days before & was a standard room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Olliejan Great location when you eventually find it.
It was not well signposted from the main road. When we got there the staff were chatting in the back office and took a while to serve us.
There is no evening meal, breakfast seating is a little crowded.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ch4rns Nice staff and great location shame about the room!
A family of 4 stayed here for 1 night and the location was ideal and the staff we encountered were very friendly BUT the room was very cramped we couldn't of stayed in this 'family room' for longer than the one night! The room was incredibly dusty just shaking the duvet cover to make the bed and the dust cloud was shocking my allergies played up all evening and night and the poor children! Its a shame we didn't discover this till the morning we were leaving! There was 1 available plug socket non of which was in close proximity to the bed which was very inconvenient and the breakfast was watery powdered scrambled eggs sausage and beans that was the hot breakfast so if your after a bit of variety thats not available its definitely a free breakfast as no one would pay for that anyway! Its a budget hotel i wouldn't say 3* though as i have experienced much better 3* hotels! Overall i wouldn't stay here again although i would surely stay in one of the vast choice of nearby hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nykevin80 Very relaxing
This is one of my favorite Hotel. The staff are great and helpful and the location is beautiful and quite, a little away from the city but transportation is just about 5mins walk. I stay here a couple of times before and I will always stay here whenever I come to watch my Man U games :). Thanks

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill29 Great location, lovely rooms but variable customer service
We were generally pleased with our recent stay here.
First the positives:
1.Great location - easy to find from the M60, handy for central Manchester via the tram network, great for eating places and walking by the quays.
2.Rooms and hotel generally clean and comfortable. Beds comfy, lighting, bathroom, tv etc all good.
3. Free wireless internet in bedrooms worked well.
4. Some staff (eg the lady replenishing breakfast; the young lady on the front desk at 10.30 on Sunday morning) were friendly, interested, helpful and approachable.
6. Allocation of rooms - we were given what we requested on the booking sheet
7. Plentiful parking - £3 cost seems reasonable to me and we could leave the car there before and after we checked in if necessary.
8.Friendly emails leading up to our arrival.
1. The surly male member of staff on reception.who booked us in . Perhaps he isn't aware how he comes across?
2.The delay in taking payment between actual booking and date of stay resulted in confusion about whether we had paid or not. Not explained clearly or dealt with sensitively.
3.Breakfast is in a tiny alcove with very limited/no space to put your tray or plate down, and the hot food is in one small corner. Could the drinks or cutlery be moved out to ease congestion?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shakybridge Good nights sleep :)
I asked for a quiet room and they stuck me on the end of the corridor on the 6th floor, perfect !
As a Platinum Elite member I was offered a free drink or extra priority club points, I took the points.
The setting by the docks is also a plus, really nice at night with the area lit up, and it also felt really safe. Lots of places to eat nearby as well.
Only problem as a dodgy fan in the bathroom ,which every now and again made an aggravating noise. Reported to reception the next morning, so hopefully fixed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Loyalred Good location for visiting Old Trafford and surrounding area
Stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. Had a room on the highest floor as requested, the room looked slightly tired e.g marks on the walls, stains on the chair which needed replacing. Air conditioning quite loud, however for a budet hotel, the establishment is comparable if not better than the competition within the budget hotel chain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Seany7 GOOD APART FROM ONE THING
I stayed here with my partner and son as we were attending a football game at Old Trafford for which the hotel is perfrecty situated. Ou stay was good except for a bunch of rowdy lads in the next room who were shouting, swearing, getting drunk for about 45 minutes before they went on a night out. We reported this to reception who only made a phone call to the room to ask them to calm down. I feel that someone should have came up to the room to witness to the commotion themselves and threaten to chuck them out such was their behaviour. When you stay at a Holiday Inn you do not expect what we experienced in the next room. However, apart form this the staff were very good and polite and the room was as we expected. Breakfast was included in price though the hot food on offer was of a limited choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SirPhilalot Salford Quays
Very good stay at Salford Quays. Working in Bolton but chose here for better value and evening meal choice from surrounding area.
Hotel staff were very friendly, efficient and welcoming. Room was spotless and very comfy. Tv had good choice and very good signal on all channels. Wifi worked perfectly, nice and fast and allowed work lap top and personal iPad to be connected at the same time.
Plenty of food choices in the neighbourhood. I even got given discount vouchers for 2 separate restaurants nearby. Breakfast was as all express branches, good quick service with plenty of choice. Plenty of room and nice and clean.
My only niggle would be that you have to pay for parking. I just feel this is something that all hotels should provide as you pay enough for the room and I wouldn't use a hotel with out a car park.
Overall a very good stay, most recommended for any one in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BEATTG Great Hotel for Old Trafford
The location within walking distance of Old Trafford, the new Media Village and the Lewry Mall makes this venue an excellent choice for Manchester United match days. However, the usual daily rate was hiked considerably just because there was a match on. Book early - it was full of football fans

Used this hotel for the 3rd test. Excellent location, very comfortable room. many places to eat within walking distance would use hotel agian for another test match. Only moan was the choice of cooked breakfast it was sausages, scrabbled eggs and beans every day for 6 days.
