From start to finish ,the welcome and friendliness of all staff was lovely ( and felt very natural) . The hotel was clean, great location and near trams to city centre. Nothing seemed too much trouble to staff and a special mention for Jessica ( customer services at breakfast), who spent time sharing local knowledge and was very helpful and attentive.

We were delighted with this hotel and location. Lovely to be able to walk along the quayside right outside the door and take it all in...The hotel staff were friendly, and attentive. The room was lovely and bright over looking the water - bed was comfortable. Breakfast was just OK, but we were there for one night, and would recommend it as a base to look around the area and outlying area. .

Amazing stay in this hotel All staff were so friendly and polite Room was lovely, loads of space with everything you need incl. kettle and condiments, all with a lovely view of the quays and the water sports centre from our room The breakfast buffet was lovely, nothing to fault especially with it being free which was a massive bonus Also, close to the metrolink station to get where you need to be. Or restaurants, bars and shops close by too. Would definitely come back and recommend

It was very easy to find, the parking was great - £3 a day - and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room - 413 - was overlooking the Watersports venue and was very interesting. The room was really good. Clean and well laid out with everything we needed.

Stayed here going to see Coldplay and I couldn't fault any of it. Easy check-in and out, lovely staff, great location and a nice enough breakfast. Great 24hr bar and you can get pizza 24/7 too what more could you want! It's right by the motorway and has a good carpark if you drive or you can get the tram literally at the bottom of the road and the trams are every 10min or so. Would recommend this hotel to for any family, friends or business trips.

Nothing wrong with this hotel, but just nothing special, apart from the staff who are absolutely lovely and very accommodating. There is an in-lobby bar, but the poor person has to also serve as the desk clerk if no one else is on. Rooms are clean but smallish and there are no drawers only a couple of shelves to unpack your stuff. It does include a hair dryer and iron, but amenities such as lotion and soaps are minimalistic. The duvet was very heavy for the season and the rooms are a bit w... Read more

My partner and I have stayed in many Holiday Inn's and this is the best so far, the staff were excellent, lovely location and the room was spotless. There was a fee of £3.00 to park but many Holiday Inn's charge far more. The tram into Manchester was a short walk from the hotel and many bars/restaurant in the area. Would definitely stay again.

Was put up in this hotel by a company who wanted my educational expertise for their employees. Was pleasantly surprised by my lovely view of the Manchester quays. Went for a wee walk and made my way through the paths that run alongside the quays up to Old Trafford. Never been to the stadium before but walking around it really makes you appreciate what a special club Man Utd are. Parking was £3 at hotel. Rooms clean. Nice breakfast and bar had some good beers on tap.

We went for the weekend of Parklife and were greeted by a lovely member of staff called Victoria who met all of our needs and even printed out maps for us prior to us coming so we knew our way round. Our room was ready early which was great! The room was lovely and modern and rather clean too. The only problem was 2 spiders and a moth later on at night. The breakfast was delicious too and great considering it was an express hotel. Would definitely stay here again, great value for money.

We stayed here the weekend of The Stone Roses. Hotel was obviously busy due to this. The hotel is right beside the quay where you can see water sports and it's close to an outlet to grab some bargains! Perfect location and we much preferred staying here away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre and it's only a 5 min walk to the tram. We arrived at 10 AM which we knew was too early but enquired about parking and check in times. We were met with a friendly member of staff who advised ... Read more

I am a bit surprised by the high ranking of this hotel. I would evaluate it as average at most. It is a chain hotel, with no character. Carpeted floor everywhere means that the hotel is not allergy friendly and you are never sure about cleanness. Breakfast was very low quality. The basic things that one expect, but all of rather poor quality. The people at the front desk when I arrived were not particularly friendly or helpful (though the afternoon shift was much more welcoming). I was happy t... Read more

This hotel is a no frills stay that provides all you actually need without the added luxury and cost of a pool, gym or restaurant. Quite liked the fact you can help yourself to additional coffee/tea sachets and milk in reception ensuring a drink can be had morning and evening. The breakfast was good, continental with additional hot items, sausage, scrambled eggs and beans. Added attraction of watc... Read more

We decided to stay in the holiday inn express because it appeared to be in a very nice area of Manchester, and we weren't disappointed. it was easy to get to Manchester centre via the metro and it is in a pleasant area. After eating out in the evening we returned to enjoy some drinks at the bar. The double room were very nice, we even had a choice of pillows. We would return to this hotel again if we wanted to stay in Manchester.

Our rooms were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast - self service with good choice of cereals, fresh fruit, croissants, muffins plus cooked items but NO bacon. all our rooms overlooked the water sport centre and were quiet. We mentioned the build up of litter at this end of the quays and were told it is cleared at times but it did look as though it was quite a few weeks or months old.

Quiet, clean well run hotel, ideal for visiting attractions at Salford Keys, staff very pleasant and helpful, car parking on site. Breakfast included in price, although limited choices what was there was fine and plentiful. 5 mins walk to Outlet Centre, Lawry Gallery and theatre, lots going on with Media City there too, buildings and bridges lighted up at night making a walk back to the hotel from the many restaurants and bars nice.

I booked this hotel as we went to a game at Old Trafford. Only 10 minute walk. Check in faultless, our room was facing the Quays. In the room were tea/coffee making facilities, plenty of plug sockets (to charge phones!), working Air Con. Bathroom a little strange, one door which you could either use to allow privacy in the toilet or whilst having a shower, but as a couple was no problem. There is a facility before you get to the lifts to buy drinks, snacks etc. don't bother, very expensive! Bu... Read more

Had an amazing stay, but was ruined by receiving a £60 parking fine from 'parking eye' . This is after paying £3.00 at reception to pay for parking. This had now been resolved some 6 weeks later after having to appeal the fine and send proof I stayed at the hotel. Parking Eye are an independent company but Holiday Inn are responsible for their quests and this would make me consider do I stay thete again.

Hotel is well positioned for both Old Trafford's and is close to the Lowry Centre and Media City.

We stayed here recently while in Manchester for the test match. I cannot fault it, the hotel is nicely situated by the water in a lovely rejuvenated area. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good, covering all bases. No matter that there is no restaurant for evening meals as there are plenty of options within five minutes walk. My one little gripe is that the drinks in the bar are expensive.

I stayed here with 2 small children this weekend. It's a good location and very handy for old trafford football stadium and the cricket stadium which are both within walking distance. I ordered an extra bed in our room which was already made up on our arrival. The room was very cramped and really there wasn't room for this extra bed. It was also very hot and the duvets far too thick to be comfortable. None of us really slept here. The breakfast the following morning was a bit of a bun fight. To... Read more

Myself and my husband spent the Bank holiday weekend at this hotel and really couldn't fault it. The rooms were really nice and the beds nice and comfortable. It was nice to have a settee in the room too. Salford quays is lovely and there was lots going on while we were there. The breakfast was really nice with plenty of choice. We had a meal in the Beefeater opposite the hotel on night, but would definitely not go back. The meal was vastly overpriced and nothing to write home about!

I stayed here in Oct 2016 for business. Sleep quality excellent as great bed and no external noise. Very quiet location. Clean rooms too, with good wifi. Its major downfall was the breakfast offer. Fruit available was either a banana, tinned grapefruit or peaches. The cooked offer was sausages, scrambled egg and beans. No bacon, mushrooms, hash browns, tomatoes etc., which I felt was very poor indeed.
