Save on a Stay at the Airport
Offering the cheapest prices you'll find, Clayton Hotel at Manchester airport (formerly Bewley's) is fantastic for families; with kids' meal options and even a play area and arcade. At the Clayton Hotel Manchester, with parking available you can walk to the terminals, or there's a free bus if you're laden down with luggage. For adults, there's a great bar and a fancy restaurant with a traditional feel and the rooms, though a little dated, are homely and spacious. Like all of our Manchester airport hotels, the Clayton Hotel has something special for everyone.
We use this hotel because it is very convenient when travelling by train to and from the airport. We stayed overnight before and after our holiday,booking breakfast prior to our rail journey home. When we returned to our room after breakfast at 8:30 we could not get access. Enquiring at reception our card was reactivated with no apology or explanation.Fortunately we had allowed plenty of time for transfer to the station,but anyone on a tight schedule would have had a problem with thismin delay.Mrs Horsfall (Manchester Clayton Hotel)
Your website gives the impression that you can walk to the hotel from the station and the terminals. This is just not possible and needs to be made clearer.Miss Armitage (Manchester Clayton Hotel)
Everything was good. We only stayed overnight for an early morning flight so didn't use the facilities, but the room was lovely and staff very helpful when we arrived and left.Mr Ledger (Manchester Clayton Hotel)
Everything went very smoothly, there was a minor issue with not being given a spoon for desert when eating in the restaurant but everything else was really easy.Mrs Cadman (Manchester Clayton Hotel)
Easy check in and out, booked easily and great location for a flight from Manchester. Very close to the airport but still no noise from it in the room.Mr Foster (Manchester Clayton Hotel)

Here are your directions to the hotel:
The construction of the new Metrolink from Manchester city centre to the airport is under way. There will be roadworks and an increased likelihood of traffic in the area until 2016, so we recommend that you leave extra time to get to the airport.
- Leave the M56 at junction 5 and follow signs for terminals 1 and 3.
- Go straight on at the traffic lights, and follow the purple signs for terminal 3 on the airport approach road.
- At the roundabout, stay in the left lane and take the first exit.
- Take the first exit at the mini roundabout.
You must check out by 12:00.
You can walk to the terminals from the hotel - it's about five minutes to terminals 1 and 3, and about 15 to 20 minutes to terminal 2.
On the other hand, you can get the hotel's bus, which runs to all three terminals 24 hours a day and is free for hotel guests. The bus takes two minutes to get to terminals 1 and 3, and five minutes to get to terminal 2.
Between 04:00 and 11:00, the bus leaves from outside the hotel every 15 minutes. If you'll be travelling between these times, you should book your seat on the bus with reception the evening before. Outside these times, the bus runs only when needed.
