(4 star hotel)
from the airport
A right royal stopover
Almost 50 years old, Crowne Plaza at Manchester Airport, Manchester 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.

when I booked I did not know I had to park my car away from the hotel, I was told after I booked my park and stay booking.Mr Andrews (Manchester Crowne Plaza)
All great. Your email ahead of time indicating the change to where parking was really helped a lot. Peter Ashley Car Park Staff also incredibly helpful.Miss Shaffer (Manchester Crowne Plaza)
Yes, smoothless process apart from fact car parking is now not on site and you have to have a transfer from a car park which we didnt want.Mrs Hulse (Manchester Crowne Plaza)
Hotel was absolutely fine, but the package booked was Parking at the Hotel. This actually turned out to be on a secure location nearby. It was a very efficient service with which I had no issues. However, this should have been explained clearly in the description when booking and not as an addendum to the instructions once I had booked.Mr Bond (Manchester Crowne Plaza)
The hotel was fine. The other arrangements not so good. The directions to the car park were hopeless and no postcode was included to help us. We eventually asked a passerby. On return the minibus took 25 minutes and two phone calls to arrive at which point the driver said he had a further pickup to complete at another terminal. All this added about 45 minutes to our long journey home. Not acceptable.Mrs Grey (Manchester Crowne Plaza)

Arrival at the Crowne Plaza
When you arrive at the Crowne Plaza, you\'ll need to hand over your keys when you check in. You can check in anytime from 14:00.
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. Or you can get the hotel shuttle 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. The bus runs on demand, so you'll need to go to reception and wait for the bus to run.
Getting to and from Manchester airport
On the day of your stay:1. Check in is from 2pm - your confirmation email will include driving directions and a postcode for sat navs if you need it.
2. Guests can park overnight at the hotel for £12.50.
Getting from the hotel to the airport:- The hotel runs a bus from the hotel to the airport and back whenever needed - just book your space with reception.
- The bus journey takes 2 minutes and is free for guests.
- You can also walk to the airport in a few minutes, but we wouldn't recommend this as you'll need to cross some busy roads.
