Just one of the many Hotels near Manchester Airport available from FHR.

We normally book with premier inn however after doing a price comparison we opted to give the Britania Airport inn a try as they offer onsite parking. Having read the recent reviews we where slightly anxious however given the great price we paid for 1 nights stay and 15 days parking. I think we got a bargain. Firstly, yes the rooms are tired but our room directly over the entrance was spotlessly clean which is more important than fancy furniture, after all it's just a place to lay your head. The public areas all seem fairy clean too. We had read negative reviews beforehand regarding the staff but to be honest when we arrived the lady on reception gave us a smile and a warm welcome, staff working on the bar where friendly too. Didn't try the restaurant as we walked 10 minutes down the road to a nice looking pub, food all microwaved to death though sadly. Spent most of the evening after dinner in the hotel bar which was fine. Didn't have any issues with noise again maybe lucky but slept well. We did however take a travel fan with us as we are in the midst of a heatwave. Used the airport transfers that are available to book through the hotel. £6 each return which again was a fair price. The morning trip to the airport went smoothly. The return trip 2 weeks later, not so. The instruction leaflet and booking form we where given is out of date. Due to drop off restrictions the cab company no longer pick up outside the jet 2 area of terminal 1. So after ringing the taxi from the location we where sent back round to the meet and greet carpark before the would accept my booking. A little annoying. The m&g carpark is now the only place everyone can go to meet their pickup both taxi and private so it's bedlam and meant a total wait of 40 minutes to get back to the hotel to pick our car up. We would definately use this hotel package again.

The hotel is very close to the airport without being on top of it. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Close for a drive into Wilmslow for some dinner etc too. Check in was fine. The room was basic but perfectly acceptable for our needs. However, the coffee was vile, a upgrade here would be nice. The lift to the airport was great, right outside, totally hassle free. Friendly driver. Sadly, once I Returned the service wasn’t so good. I called them to collect me,my partner and two young children and take us back to the hotel and my car but the hotel pay for number after being automatically answered left me waiting a while and when I did speak to the woman on reception she said I’d be better off getting a private taxi and not using their shuttle, she then transferred me to a private taxi company which did not answer the phone. We had to walk around and try to find a unoccupied taxi. There wasn’t any so we went back into the airport and found a company there. Was a bit of a wait but the service from that taxi company was excellent, very professional, unlike the woman who answered my call from Airport inn. Seems like she really couldn’t be bothered.

Handy for the airport, with good transport arrangements, however, the hotel looks very much like it's in need of an upgrade, it's looking a bit 'tired', and the lack of a lift is a issue with suitcases.

The hotel was clean and had everything we needed tho a lift would have been helpful; trying to carry 4 suitcases up steps with 2 young kids at 3am wasnt great! The transfer from the airport was apallingly bad. They gavs us a number for a taxi firm which we found out would/could only pick up from the train station. We discovered this on landing and had to drag the suitcases and 2 very tired kids half a mile to be picked up at 2.30am! Not to be repeated.

The hotel was easy to find and check in was easy though one of the self service terminals to register your car for parking was not working - a good job I realised as there was a fine for not registering your car! I would happily use this hotel for an overnight stay and parking again

All was good on arrival and transfer to airport. Parking was easy. On our return we had to arrange our own taxi back to hotel as our included transport did not arrive.

Arrived just after 8.00 pm to be told there was no food available, and was directed to a restaurant a few miles up the road. Indifferent reception staff, who did not explain to us about the car registration/ login system, and as a result we received a parking penalty notice on our return from holiday. This was an extra stress we could have done without on our return from an excellent holiday. It would appear the hotel has a system for cancelling the parking charges. We were disappointed with the overall appearance and condition of the hotel.

Budget Hotel, value for money, staff friendly, efficient and welcoming. Conveniently placed for airport have used many times before and probably will use again if we fly from Manchester Airport. Parking has always been fine for us at this hotel as we do not travel in the peak summer periods.

Hotel was fine, parking not great, due to bad parking of others a lot of the spaces were inhabitable so had to park in the muddy overflow which was basically a field.

Hi. We are looking to stay after our return flight. We land around 01.30. Is it OK to check in then? Also can we pre-book transfer or do we just wait? Do they fill up quickly? Thanks Clare.You can check in at that time, you would need to book the stay night for the night before . We would then advise the hotel that you will be arriving early hours the following morning. You cannot pre book the transfers, you will need to call the hotel on return and they will send the bus up to collect you
what time is breakfast served from during the week.thanksContinentail is available from 04.30am - 10.00am and Full English 7.00am - 10.00am
Hi. Can you confirm the airport transfer fees? There seems to be 2 conflicting prices on your website. At the top it says single £5 - return £8 and further down it says return £6. ThanksThe airport transfers are £6.00 return, apologies we have updated our information
I would like a twin room with parking but we have 2 cars. Sorry but you would only get one parking space per room booked at the hotel, it would not be possible to add an extra car. We can offer a separate parking on airport - if you would like us to quote please confirm your return date and time.
considering going on holiday from the 3rd july and leaving Manchester airport at 6.55pm and return at 4am on the18th.Is it possible to book parking for that period and rent the double room for the 18th at 4am until 2pm or whenever we need to vacate the room. The room would need to be booked for 17th, we would advise the hotel that you would not be arriving until 4am on 18th. The check out time is 11am and the hotel cannot guarantee that you would be able to extend the checkout time until you checked in. It depends on how busy the hotel is at that time.
