Fair budget hotel. Bedrooms rather dated and in need of face-lift. However, they are clean and tidy. Good bar area and restaurant, with reasonably priced menu, drinks on expensive side though. If you are travelling with cases, beware of the very cramped lift, which has a mind of its own, and does not service all of the rooms

Easy to find and 10 minutes from the airport. Check in was quick and pain free. The rooms were great camp bed a little uncomfortable but slept in worse. We had to pay £10 to use the pool this wasn’t part of the hotel but it was worth it (for 2). Sat and ate in the bar and the food was nice. Shuttle to the airport was quick and easy there and back.

The hotel was clean an staff was friendly Although there's no lifts to take you to 3rd floor when you have 6 holiday cases. Having to pay for the extra facilities at the hotel (Gym, swimming pool) is abit poor.

Stayed with my wife and 2 children on the night prior to our holiday with 2 weeks parking included. Good value as it was similar price to just parking at any of the airport car parks. Rooms were of a good standard and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food from the bar menu. Transfers organised by hotel to airport and were prompt and professional. Would stay here again if flying out of Manchester in future.

Excellent service from the staff, warm and friendly and very professional. Hotel rooms are adequately equipped and clean and tidy. Refreshments and catering facilities were excellent with full range of options available. Would highly recommend to others and we will be using the place again particularly before and after holiday travels from Manchester Airport particularly with the great offers for stay and park.

Functional is the word I would use to describe this hotel. It is in desperate need of updating and decorating! Our room had a damp smell and both myself and my husband were bit in the bed ! The plug was stuck in the sink and the kids had to sleep on a sofa bed that was really shaky and a paper thin mattress ! I wouldn’t stay here again .... I was attracted by the price as it was a good deal for the night stay and a week parking- however I’d pay a little more next time for a nice start to the family holiday !

Hotel was fine but the point of booking our stay was for the parking whilst on holiday. This hotel is advertised as having parking available but there were no spaces in the car park and we were left having to park the car in an entry lane to the hotel. This was not what we would have expected and would not use this hotel again

Got to hotel and dropped off car - no problems and paid for transfers to and from airport. On return we phoned to be told by taxi firm bus would be 20 mins (1-35) after 50 mins we called again and was told bus was just dropping off in airport, after another 20 mins called again, we then paid £15 for a different taxi to take us to Britannia. Got there at 3. Went to room and was not given key by receptionist, walked back down for key. In bed 20 mins and got 2 calls from the taxi that we phoned and cancelled wanting to know where we were. Complained to manager in the morning, waste of time, got home and found that my number plate was missing, we never stopped and we would have known if it had dropped off going home. Needless to say, we will not be using this hotel again and you should rethink your contract with Club Taxis who also left an old lady of 66 waiting for 70 mins and put the phone down on her when she complained.

Hotel room was small but for one night o.k. transfers where on time just a little mix up on return transfer we were told to meet at incorrect area but the taxi driver found us so no problem. On return to hotel to pick up my car it was in right old state. Had to park under some trees/bushes. Pleased it was only a week and not two.

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

With the airport transfers, is it a return journey?Thank you for your email, Charges per person are £6 per adult return, Children £4 Return 
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.
