Recommendations please for airport hotel at Manchester

We haven't flown from Manchester for a few years now and I'm looking for new reviews on good places to stay.

The last couple of times we stayed at the Radisson but after checking the prices for next year I will be looking elsewhere, I think they've lost the plot

We are happy to travel a max of 30 minutes in the morning so will look at guest houses too.

Last year we flew from Birmingham and we found a great place, but you can't fly virgin from there

Thanks
Tracey

I always ya the premier inns. In my opinion the better one is the one nearest the road ( not that white one) great pub nearby called the Romper for tea 👍🏼

We are staying at cresta court (best western) in Altrincham. It was a good price with parking included and on site! They also do a taxi to and from the airport (can remember if small fee for this?)

Reviews are ok on TripAdvisor. Close to Manchester if you want to pop in apparently.

Havent actually stayed there yet but happy to update when we stay in July before our flight ;-)

Premier Inn at Handforth (about 3 miles from airport and free parking). Great pub attached (nice food and beer), only downside was room for quite hot and no air con.

Other than that was good for ~55.

Weve stayed at the Clayton which has a free shuttle but is still a little pricey but nice.

There are 3 premier inns very close to the airport. Runger Lane South, Runger Lane North and Heald Green. We will have stayed in all of them after our October trip. Its about 10 each way to get to them in a taxi but we got our room for 30 so its worth that extra cost. Heald Green also can be got to by train from Man Airport (only 5 mins and 1 stop away)

Theres also a Hilton which is nice and a Crowne plaza.

Another vote for Premier Inn Runger Lane. Both the Runger Lane north and Runger Lane south share a car park, they are opposite each other.

South has 2 King sized beds and a shower room, North has the usual Premier Inn family room set up of 1 King and then 2 single beds.

Dh is a worrier, so he likes to stay close enough that should he need to he can walk

Food wise we take a room picnic! It is how we always start our holiday with an M&S sandwich.

Good to hear you are staying in Altrincham. Hotel is basic but good enough. It has a nice bar but please DO NOT eat in the restaurant. I am happy to offer recommendations in the Altrincham area. Just let me know.

there is a great little hotel about two miles away called The Bulls Head in Hale Barns.Its attached to a lovely pub too. It might be cheaper because its not a huge chain! Worth a look
