Travelodge (Manchester Airport)
Advantages: Cheap, close to airport
Disadvantages: not an hotel to stay in longer than one night, noise from the motorway
I have recently stayed in this hotel and would again.
The reason why we choose this hotel in the first place was down to price - all though it is very close to the airport at only £29 for 1 nights stay, you cant argue with that!
The hotel seemed to a little bit bigger than most of the travelodges i've stayed in but i'm not sure if that is because it wasnt a multistory like ones i've stayed in previously.
There was a large car park - although this is chargable however i'm not sure on the excat price but you are allowed to short stay for up to 30 minutes with no charge.
The reception was bright, warm and welcoming with internet access and vending machines for hot, cold drinks and snacks. The bar/restaurant was attached to the right of the reception area where alcoholic, hot, soft drinks, snacks and meals where served.
The room was one of the cleanist travelodges i've stayed in! The room had a kettle, selection of teas and coffee, a portable colour TV with freeview and the bathroom was very clean - although no shampoo or shower gel but i believe that this is an amenity that this hotel chain that they no longer supply - but again for 1 night this doesnt really matter.
As i was reading some of the reviews for this travelodge, some complained of the noise from the motorway - our room was situated on the ground floor facing the car park, but we couldnt hear the noise from our room! However i can imagine if your room is facing the motorway then this will be expected!
There is a shuttle bus service to the airport which i think if i remember is every 40 minutes - unfortuantely it is not free! £3 per person or £7 for a party of 4 people (there was only 3 people in my party yet the £7 was still cheaper than paying per person per seat!) but because of the way to get to the airport terminals if maybe a little more in a taxi.
They run from early morning to late-ish each day. This needs to be booked at the reception desk who will give you the times so that you can schedule it with the time you may need to be at the airport for. You need to make sure you know which terminal you will be flying from.
The reception staff were again friendly, welcoming and very helpful.
All in all this was a really nice hotel, cant complain for the price and if you book it well in advance, or through the travelodge website when they have there room sale, you may even be able to get it for as little as £10 per night!
Summary: Ok if you are only going to be staying for one night
