A right royal stopover
Almost 50 years old, the Crowne Plaza was one of the first hotels to be built near to Manchester airport. A pioneer in its field, this Manchester airport hotel has half a centurys worth of experience in the trade, and it certainly shows. Its an exemplary place to rest your head before saying goodbye to Blighty and its just five to 10 minutes from the terminals. But staying here is so much more than just a place to sleep; from the multi-cultural cuisine to the on-site gym and sauna, the plush bedrooms and ample facilities, this 4-star hotel offers a diverse experience that will have you feeling like your holiday has already begun. If you do have the inclination to leave your all-inclusive surroundings, the abundant culture of Manchesters city centre is just 20 minutes away.
Beyond the rich, glass-fronted foyer lie three eateries to choose between; the vivid Sampans restaurant, which is an Asian medley inspired by no fewer than seven lands of the Orient, while the monochrome Lobby restaurant supplies British dishes with a modern twist. Callaghans is where to go for a pint of the black stuff over a light-bite and a game of pool. Its an Irish bar thats full of traditional character. Want to work up an appetite before you dig in? The fully air-conditioned, on-site health centre boasts cardiovascular training equipment, weights and a sauna area.
The Crowne Plaza is a hotel that has thought of everything. Youre probably going on holiday to get away from it all, but you can still keep your ear to the ground and help yourself to a free newspaper as you enter the hotel. Plus theres wifi available throughout, so you can post a casual, not meaning to brag, but... update on your social feed whenever you wish. Wifi at the Crowne Plaza is £5 for one hour, £10 for four hours and £16 for 24 hours. Fancy a game of pool in Callaghans but run out of sterling? Dont worry, theres an ATM just opposite the reception desk. And as you leave, dont forget to check the handy departures and arrivals screen in the foyer for last-minute flight updates.
