Manchester airport is the UK’s third busiest airport, with 19,736,502 passengers passing through in 2012, with Gatwick and Heathrow only seeing greater volumes and, as such, it seems fairly fitting to take a look at just three available hotels in the close vicinity to the airport. Being the busiest UK based airport outside of London, many passengers find themselves having to travel from all over the North to fly out of Manchester and, as such, this creates a significant demand for hotels close to the airport to accommodate the night prior to and following their flights in many instances. We thought we would take a look at just three of the more popular Manchester airport hotels to showcase just a little selection of what is available across all budgets.
First things first, at the lower end of the budget is the Britannia Stockport which is available from just £52 per night and is located just 6 miles from the airport. At this fantastic hotel, you’ll find all the facilities which you’d expect to see in a hotel with a much heftier price tag such as a health and leisure club (available at just £4 per adult and £2 per child) as well as free transfers to and from the airport. You really couldn’t ask for more at this price range and if budget is of importance, you could do far worse than booking this hotel.
Secondly, a little higher the budget, options are coming in with rooms from £80 per night include the Crowne Plaza which is within the airport complex itself. If you book a night at this hotel, you can rest assured that you’re located just 2 minutes away from the terminals on the free 24 hour shuttle busses meaning that it’s perfect for early morning departures as you’re almost as close as you can be. In addition, each and every room has full air conditioning and you can be confident you’ll be staying in luxury based upon the average rating of 85.9% by 339 happy customers on FHR-Net.co.uk.
Last, but by no means least, at the top end of our budget from £139 per night is the Radisson Blu which is located right between Terminals 1 and 2 at Manchester airport; the only hotel at the airport to be linked to all terminals, the rail and the coach stations by an elevated walkway. If you’re wanting to stay in a luxury hotel before or after your flight, this should be your choice of hotel and you’ll not only be faced with an outstanding room but also access to the on-site health club which boasts a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and cardiovascular equipment. If its within your budget, go for it, we can guarantee you won’t regret it.
Of course, there’s many more Manchester airport hotels available than these, however as far as hotels at the top, middle and bottom of people’s budgets, it’s safe to say we’ve outlined a great spread of what’s available should you choose to stay on-site or close by prior to or following a long flight.
