Manchester Airport Hotels

By: Adrian Kinley

The Crown Plaza Hotel and The Bewley Hotel are two Manchester airport hotels that are just five minutes walk from either of the airports terminals.

Bewleys Hotel rooms cost ?79 ($160) regardless of the day of the week. It is classed as a 3 star but probably just about deserves a 3.5 thanks to the fact they have just had wireless fitted which comes included in the price.

If you found this review whilst searching for Manchester airport hotels then its probably a given that you simply need a place to rest and freshen up whilst you wait for your connection and if that is the case, you will find The Bewley well suited.

You will find reasonably priced food in the dining area as well as bar and an ATM. A nice touch was the receptionist asking what time my flight was in the morning and then receiving an early morning call making sure I was up and reminding me how long before my flight check in was open. Having showered and gone down to check out of The Bewley, I was then offered a complimentary shuttle service to the departures.

A few of the manchester airport hotels cater for the business traveler and one of these is situated right next door to the Bewley hotel.

The Crown Plaza cost me ?135 ($270) for the night and is classed a 4 star. For your money you get a buffet style breakfast thrown in but everything else goes on the credit card. Room service was available but prices were on the expensive side. Movies and other entertainment such as Playstation games were available but went straight onto your credit card.

There was no cash machine on the premises but as everything was charged to your credit card, this was not a problem. Internet access was available through a LAN and as with most Manchester airport hotels a free shuttle service was available although not on the day I stayed. Due to the Glasgow airport attack, no vehicles were allowed to drop off near the terminal entrances which was of course, perfectly understandable.

For short business trips from the airport such as Manchester Gatwick, Manchester Isle of Man etc. The Crown Plaza offers airport car parking at 15 ($30) a day. This was the cheapest I saw on offer during my time at the airport.

During the time I stayed at both The Crown Plaza and The Bewley (July 2007) I found the staff to be eager to please and pleasant and I can recommend both these Manchester airport hotels. For the business traveler who is perhaps flying into Manchester and requires somewhere for a meeting or two and has an expense account then the Crown Plaza would be the first choice. If on the other hand, you simply need somewhere to rest up while on a long journey, The Bewley offers good value compared to other Manchester airport hotels. If you need cheaper, you may find you will need to travel into the city.
