Great location very close to Manchester Airport. Cosy, stylish and quiet rooms. spacious and stylish bathroom. Large free parking. Restaurant and Bar are in a separate building but all is very nicely maintained, clean and the staff are very friendly.

We hadn't been for years so we were impressed by the transformation as it has been totally refurbished in a very stylish way. Also, the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good range of drinks available including a selection of real ales. Food: we liked the menu as most tastes seemed to be catered for including vegetarians. My...

Accommodation and food can't be beaten. It's a short cab ride to the airport and gives you the opportunity to stay in a great place for a good price and get outstanding food and drink (Jennings beer - can't be beaten) The breakfast alone is sufficient to recommend this pub / hotel

My friends and I stayed over night before flying out of Manchester Airport. The hotel is attached to a pub and is about 10 minutes from the airport - about £10-£12 in a taxi.

Was really let down by this place as after we ordered a lot of food and drink they couldn't off us to take the food away. The food was nice but did lack in flavour the waitresses and waiters weren't attentive. Disappointing experience.

This property was a nice surprise. I needed a place to stay before my flight out of the Manchester airport and this place was very affordable. You do need to get a taxi to get to the airport, but worth it. The rooms are modern (not very large) with a nice large bathroom. Everything is really clean. This property was...

We stayed here due to the location close to Manchester Airport but far enough away not to suffer from inflated prices. The hotel is only about 5-10 mins drive from the terminals. The hotel was comfortable, clean and the breakfast was good. Pub adjacent to the lodge serves good food.
