If you’re looking for the best Manchester airport hotels, here are my picks, all are within two miles of the terminal building and receive guest ratings of at least 80% from verified guest reviews (the person leaving the review actually stayed there).Â I checked prices for a one night stay in a double room on Wednesday 20th April 2011 (prices and airport shuttle details correct on 5 September 2010).Â I’ve listed the hotels by proximity to the airport.

The Premier Inn Manchester Airport is 1.7 miles from the airport. A shuttle bus operated by the airport is available between 4am – midnight, an adult single costs Â£3 and an open return Â£5.Â It receives an average guest rating of 86% based on 680 reviews.Â The price was Â£39 for room only on the Premier Inn website.
The Etrop Grange Hotel is 1.7 miles from the airport and offers 24 hour complimentary airport transfers. This Grade II listed mansion is the only non-chain hotel in the vicinity of the airport and each bedroom is individually decorated. There’s fee wifi throughout.Â It receives an average guest rating of 86% from 81 reviews.Â The price was Â£59 for room only.
The Marriott just makes it into the 2 miles radius at 1.9 miles from the airport. The shuttle bus runs from 4.15am – 11pm with tickets costing Â£4 single or Â£6 return per adult, if there’s more than one passenger a taxi may be cheaper. It receives an average guest rating of 84% from 162 reviews.Â With a price tag of Â£115 for room only, this was the most expensive Manchester Airport hotel in my search.
Manchester Airport Parking Options
Some hotels will also include parking for up to 15 days either in a fly-park room rate or on payment of a supplement.Â This may be a cheaper option than arranging parking directly with a car park provider.Â However, when comparing costs, remember to factor in any costs for getting to and from the terminal if transfers arenâ€™t included in the hotel car parking rates, as transfers are generally included in the price quoted by car parks.Â You can find the lowest prices for parking using the price comparison search box below.
Which is the best Manchester Airport hotel?
I’d probably just go for the cheapest option of the Premier Inn Manchester Airport at Â£39 for the room plus Â£10 for airport transfers for two people. Premier Inn also receives the joint highest guest rating of 86%, the same as Etop Grange Hotel, which at Â£59 for room only but offering free wifi and airport shuttle, would be my second choice.
