Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wally1 Excellent Hotel and Service
This hotel is ideally located when flying from Manchester airport. The location, facilities, parking, rooms, staff and service were excellent and we would not hesitate in staying there in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joanne12345 Cold Service & Cold Room
It's shocking that members of the rewards system, at platinum level, are not allowed in the club lounge at this hotel. That's what / who club lounges were invented for!! I was told at check in that you have to pay extra to have access to the club lounge, which is not like the rest of the Crowne Plaza chain of hotels, so why does this hotel have a different (and unfair) policy.
I could not sleep because the room was freezing cold, even though the heating had been on maximum for several hours. The heating unit was very noisy, did not get hot and the grill in the ceiling had been moved / opened like there had been some attempt to fix it. Therefore, as far as I'm concerned, the hotel had knowingly checked me into a room with a broken heater.
This hotel does not match the standard of the rest of the IHG hotels / brands. I stayed on a rewards night too and am therefore even more disappointed there was nothing special about the stay - what a waste of hard earned points.

it was good place to stay, but will need to consider alternative due to price increasing. Hotel has old infrastructure and does not offer any new since 2008.
