(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.

Arrival at the Crowne Plaza
Before you arrive at the Crowne Plaza, you’ll now need to park at the Peter Ashley car park. It’s only about a mile away from the hotel and once you’ve dropped your car and your keys off there, you’ll just need to hop on the free, 24-hour bus to the hotel. You can check in from 14:00.
Here are your directions to the Peter Ashley car park:
- Leave the M56 at junction 4.
- Follow the sliproad onto Simonsway.
- Keep going down this road for sometime until you come to a cross road, where you'll need to keep going ahead onto Finney Lane.
- Shortly after, you'll then need to take the first right onto Irvin Drive and the car park will be in front of you.
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.
