(3 star hotel)
from the airport
Set up base camp at the Altrincham Lodge hotel Manchester
More of an airport motel than airport hotel, the Altrincham Lodge is an ideal stopover for sightseers on a shoestring. This cut-price venue is a room-only package, but dont worry, youre not expected to starve during your stay here! The Pelican Inn next door is where you can fill up on tasty grub from this Flaming Grills chain, which provides breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Whats more, this comfortable Manchester airport hotel is four miles from the airport, so while you wont be deafened by the blasts of Boeing 747s, youll still be just 12 to 15 minutes away from them. And despite being on the busy A56 main road, the Altrincham Lodge is set so far back that you can enjoy some peace and quiet before the travelling rush sets in.
While youre not next door munching your way through the menu or playing on the fruit machines, theres free wifi throughout the hotel for making those last-minute checks on flight details and sending emails to loved ones before you depart. There are even fax and photocopying facilities available at the 24-hour reception desk, so whatever time you arrive you can get that last-minute passport copy made, should you need it!
No need to get lodged here, go out and explore!
Everything was fine and as expected and the staff were very pleasant and considerate to us especially bearing in mind that although we had not requested a ground floor room they immediately on arrival arranged for our room to be changed to that level when seeing that I have to use a walking stick due to problems with my hips. We thought that this was very considerate on their behalf.Mr Megson (Manchester Altrincham Lodge)
The reception staff were helpful. The room needs a revamp its rather rundown and the bathroom was very uninviting. I caught my hair in the hairdryer.Ms Gillard (Manchester Altrincham Lodge)
No it was a horrible place and I will never return there ever. The first room we had stank of smoke even though it was nonsmoking. We then moved and it was still dirty, noisy and felt like an unsafe place. Very nearly left as it was so bad but had to be up early for a flight.Miss Roberts (Manchester Altrincham Lodge)
The room was very comfortable and just what we required. The staff were very helpful too. A good start to our holiday.Mrs Bower (Manchester Altrincham Lodge)
The hotel is situated a bit further from the airport than I thought and at the time of day we were checking in clashed with rush hour, took ages to get there, the morning trip ws quicker though being just before the rush hour.Ms Simons (Manchester Altrincham Lodge)
the hotel its self was satisfactory, the staff, lady on reception very nice and very helpful. Didn't like the food in the adjoining pub wouldn't visit it again but would go back to the hotel.

If you enjoy getting out and about when you go on holiday, youll no doubt appreciate the nearby transport links around the Altrincham Lodge. The metro is just five minutes away and will whisk you into the city centre for some Mancunian culture, or the sports fanatics among you may wish to hop on the metro to the Old Trafford football stadium and cricket ground. Theyre both within easy reach of this conveniently located airport hotel. And if you enjoy the leafy outdoors but dont have time to wander too far, Woodheys Park is a large green space immediately opposite the Altrincham Lodge; a great way to work up an appetite before your evening feast at the Pelican.
This comfortable 3-star venue is fantastic value for money and the hearty grub at the Pelican Inn restaurant next door will have you jet set and ready to fly.
