Great Price in fantastic location
Staff were great and extremely welcoming.
Breakfast was what was to be expected from a continental breakfast. Well cooked food that was just right.
Modern, convenient, avoid "peak breakfast"
What I wanted is what I got - a modern, clean and convenient hotel at a good price. The staff were also very good. Two things let the place down. The room aircon - this is a very new hotel so this
should have been working but no way was the room being cooled to 18C. This affected my sleep and getting ready in the morning after a shower. The second point is slightly unfair but really predictable. The purpose of my stay was to attend the Manchester Uni open day, a well publicised event which started at around 09:30. So breakfast at 8:30 was complete mayhem with many uncleared tables. The staff did react well, anyone going in later would have had a huge choice of tables and the buffet was heaped. A little anticipation on the part of the hotel may have meant that fewer guests were forced to clear tables for themselves at "peak breakfast". [Less]
The holiday Inn express is perfect for short stay it's quite basic but everything you need for a short stay breakfast first morning was a little bit off putting tables needed cleaning dishes piled up
but second morning everything was perfect maybe short staffed? I would not hesitate to book a room here again. [Less]
