hotel needed...

by iaint

I'm looking for a hotel in the greater Manchester area for 1 night next month.

I arrive at the airport in the afternoon, and have to be at Haydock Park (off the M6) in the evening. Next day I have to be in Bradford and then travel back to Manchester airport.

I'll have a rented car and the obvious solution is a place close to the M6 or M62.

Important is that its clean & quiet. Don't mind a budget chain, but happy to pay more to be comfortable. Don't fancy an airport hotel or Manchester city centre.

Anyone know what the hotel at Old Trafford cricket ground is like, and if its convenient for the airport + motorway?

There are some good hotels at Salford Quays, close to the Imperial War Museum and Old Trafford football stadium. The area is quiet in the evening but there are a couple of decent restaurants (in addition to the hotel restaurants).

Tafford Lodge (Cricket Ground) looks ok from the cricket ground and as long as there isn't a game on the day you need you should get a romm ok

it seemed to take us about 10mins to get onto the motorway from the cricket ground( but that was in traffic leaving the game)

manchester airport isn't too far away - if i remember rightly

have you thought about a hotel close to Haydock Park? - The Haydock Thistle is an example. 90 minutes to Bradford from here

It depends what you want for the evening as to where best to stay of course but two choices worth considering - Novotel just off junction 13 of the M60 is enroute with a decent pub close by - The John Gilbert or Travel Inn/Lodge at the junction for Heywood/Prestwich junction 18 I think. Allow one hour along the M62 to get to Bradford from j13, around 45 minutes from J18. There is also a travel inn close to M62 J10 of M62, Warrington if you don't want to travel too far from Haydock.

Old Trafford cricket ground is ok but a bit out of your way unless you want to get into the city centre for the evening as it is close to the tram stop. I would say the same about the Salford Quays hotels, good but a diversion not worth taking. Hope this helps

Thanks all; I'll have a few hours free in the morning before I go to Bradford, and as I haven't been to Manchester for 10+ years I thought I'd have a quick look round.

However I value my peace & quiet in a hotel, and don't want to be in the centre.

Re: hotel needed...

to answer your need for a morning look around. I think the old trafford one would be fine - it is easy to get the tram into city centre and close enough to the motorway for an exit to the M60&62. It is much quicker getting a tram from old trafford to city centre than salford quays. However, if you want to drive in and pay the ever increasing car park charges then either quays or old trafford will do.

thanks all; I've booked the Old Trafford Lodge;

nice to try something different once in a while;

plus all the chain hotels between the airport and Haydock were booked up already;

Travel Tips for Manchester


by Ben-UK

I remember this building as Manchester Central train station , although that closed in the late 1960's. The site lay derelict for years but now it's a fine exhibition and events venue. G-Mex (or to give it its full name: Greater Manchester Exhibition Centre) opened in 1986

Less than 5 minutes from Piccadilly by tram.

The Gay Scene

by orlikins

Manchester has a very well-known 'Gay Village' which is down in Canal St (Rochdale Canal) - near the UMIST college and Princess st. In recent years, it has become less exclusively gay as more and more 'straight' people come down to Canal St to hang out in the cool bars thanks to the TV series 'Queer as Folk' which was about 3 gay friends in Manchester

Rugby à XIII

by iaint

Last time I was at a rugby league game was the 1972-73 challenge cup final in France. Toulouse XIII against someone...

There's lots of rugby league close to Manchester - St Helens, Warrington or Wigan - but not whilst I was there. I ended up in Bradford to see them play Wakefield on a Sunday afternoon. Actually its only 30 miles from Manchester, so not much further than some of the more local teams!

Its just off the motorway so quite easy if you know the way, but a signpost or two would have been helpful.

I enjoyed it and it was only £22 for a centre stand ticket (but the obligatory jersey as a pressie for my son was £45!). The stadium has seen better days, but its a nice friendly atmosphere even with 10,000 inside.

Bradford came from behind (0-6 down at half time) to win 24-10. Good game. None - except maybe GPS to find the stadium!

City Library

by jayhawk2000

When it opened in 1934, this was one of the largest public libraries in the world. This was the first British library to employ women librarians and to establish a children's library service (the oldest children's book is a 400-year-old Latin primer!).

Step inside into the Shakespeare Hall and see how many of his plays you can recognise in the stained glass window.

Then head upstairs and take a look at the awesome domed Great Hall and reading room.

In the basement is the Library Theatre, one of the best in the city. The building is also home to the esteemed Henry Watson Music Library.

Mall Crawling

by tvor about Trafford Center

For the ultimate Mall experience you should check out the Trafford Center. I wasn't going to write a tip about it as everyone else does too but really, this mall is one of the nicest i've seen. It does not look like your usual concrete slab filled with stores from the outside. It has graceful lines and pillars, domes and trees. There is an outdoor pool and skating area and inside, there are market type stalls as well as the usual shops. There's a large cinema complex as well as some gaming arcades. The food area is decorated in sections and themes and the main food court eating area looks like the deck of a cruise ship. The domes and sculptures through the mall are amazing Getting There: Shuttle buses will ferry customers to & from the Centre & Stretford Metrolink station every 15 minutes. The total journey time is only 11 minutes. There's a bus station as well and lots of busses travel there from all over the city. See the website for transportation and maps.
