What a find

This is the first time I have used Holiday Inn Express, it won't be the last.

The value is excellent compared to other similar hotel chains, and breakfast is included. Holiday Inn Express Manchester Centre/Arena looks very new and has a modern feel, rooms are good and the walk in shower is great. Breakfast buffet is excellent, though I suspect it may be a bit chaotic at very busy times, they do advise you when these may be. Great location for central Manchester and the arena, 15 minutes walk from Piccadilly Station. Highly Recommended

Great location

Stayed at the holiday inn when going to watch a concert.

The hotel is in a very good location, very close to shops, arena and printworks. Only slight complaint, we found it very difficult to find.

Ok room....crap breakfast

Room was clean and comfortable.

My bedside light would not work due to a faulty switch but only stayed for one night so didn't make an issue of it. Shower room was very good although water pressure was a bit poor. Cooked breakfast was the poorest I think I've ever had in a 'budget' hotel. Choice was sausage, beans and scrambled egg. That's it. No bacon, no tomatoes, no mushrooms, no hash browns. No sausages ready when I got there and had to wait 15 minutes for fresh sausages to arrive!. Was going to complain on checking out but reception was too busy and I was in a hurry to get a better breakfast somewhere else for less money!

Fantastic Location

This hotel is ideally situated for events at the Manchester Arena, lots of parking close by and lots of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance.

Fantastic for a city break.

Excellent, clean and friendly hotel

We stayed on 6th Feb to watch Phoenix Nights at the arena.

Hotel o's approx 10 minutes walk from the arena and is situated behind the Crown Plaza so had difficulty finding it at first.

Rooms fairly spacious, spotless clean , lovely shower room , coffee tray, tv, hairdryer etc. Checkout was 11 , breakfast 7.30-1030, breakfast is buffet style with just eggs beans and sausages for the 'hot' option which was ok.

No problems , would stay again.
