Great Overnight Find
If wanting a no thrills place to stay near Manchester Airport this is the one! I used it overnight, slept well & had plenty of time for easy 10 min drive to airport. If solo or couple, this is a great find. Reception person was friendly & had plenty of knowledge of local area.

Don’t waste your money
Wouldn’t recommend it, especially not as a woman travelling solo. Checked in and out the same evening! Final straw was when I went to tell reception there was urine all over the toilet seat and I got shrugged off with “well men stay here too”...
