Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trish20 Overnight stay June 2013
Great hotel, in a great location, we stayed here as we were going to see Dirty Dancing at the Palace Theatre, it is just 300 metres from the Hotel.
Staff were very friendly & helpful from the minute we checked in to the moment we left,
We would definately stay at this hotel again, no hesitation, rooms really clean & comfortable & decent breakfast included, Thanks Holiday Inn Express, great stay..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sunshine07 comfortable and functional hotel; shame about breakfast
The rooms were perfectly functional, well appointed and comfortable.
There was no wardrobe just a rail and hangers near the kettle. The bed was firm. The 4 pillows were labelled Firm and Soft - a lovely touch, but just a shame the pillows were on the thin side.
The bathroom was clean and a decent size. it was a bit light on amenities (offering only a shower gel and hand wash), but there was a note offering guest additional free amenities from the reception (like toothbrush, shaving gel etc.).
The included breakfast was probably one of the worst I have had. All the 'hot items' were cold, despite being under 'hot lamps'. The scrambled eggs had the look and texture of cous-cous (dry and sand-like).
Overall a comfortable hotel in a nice central lcation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paleninteresting Another excellent stay
Good room and room service when we asked for extra pillows. Nice welcome at reception. Interested in what we were in Manchester for. Good sleep, quiet room with good facilities. Good selection at breakfast, shame that one member of staff was abrupt when pushing us to leave.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JandM60126 Great staff and a welcome travel respite.
We arrived at the hotel the morning of 18 May prior to the proper check-in time. We had a fair amount of luggage in tow and we wished to place it safely away. We then intended to trek about Manchester and return later to check in.
The kind folk at the hotel not only let us check in early and thus give us relief of our luggage burden, they allowed us to partake of breakfast that same morning. That was very kind of them indeed!
The hotel is situated nearby the Manchester Oxford Road rail depot. This was our primary motive for choosing the hotel.

A great overnight stay from the moment i arrived. Great welcome and what a fantastic room (great shower) for the price paid. Lots of pubs and restaurants in the vicinity and 5 min walk to trai. Staton.
Wouldnt look further than this hotel for my next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by donbilton Room fitted just what we wanted and where we needed to be.
Hotel was clean, good value in the place that we needed to be for a further journey and also a rest after the first of the two times we stayed with you. 26/03/13 and 25/04/13. We will almost certainly use your hotel if and when we visit UK next year from our home here in Thailand

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue37 Great service, great place to stay
Stayed one night, after a concert at Bridgewater Hall. Staff on Reception very welcoming and helpful - problem with TV remote sorted within minutes. Comfortable room, good heating/air con, choice of pillows, good bathroom. Hotel pretty busy, to judge by people down for breakfast, but no noise overnight. Excellent breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.
