Set up base camp at the Altrincham Lodge hotel Manchester
More of an airport motel than airport hotel, the Altrincham Lodge is an ideal stopover for sightseers on a shoestring. This cut-price venue is a room-only package, but don't worry, you're not expected to starve during your stay here! The Pelican Inn next door is where you can fill up on tasty grub from this Flaming Grills chain, which provides breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. What's more, this comfortable Manchester airport hotel is four miles from the airport, so while you won't be deafened by the blasts of Boeing 747s, you'll still be just 12 to 15 minutes away from them. And despite being on the busy A56 main road, the Altrincham Lodge is set so far back that you can enjoy some peace and quiet before the travelling rush sets in.
While you're not next door munching your way through the menu or playing on the fruit machines, there's free wifi throughout the hotel for making those last-minute checks on flight details and sending emails to loved ones before you depart. There are even fax and photocopying facilities available at the 24-hour reception desk, so whatever time you arrive you can get that last-minute passport copy made, should you need it!
No need to get lodged here, go out and explore!
The stay was fantastic, staff were really helpful. The only slight snag we had was that my partner has very bad arthritis & struggled with the stairsMs Clifton (Altrincham Lodge)

If you enjoy getting out and about when you go on holiday, you'll no doubt appreciate the nearby transport links around the Altrincham Lodge. The metro is just five minutes away and will whisk you into the city centre for some Mancunian culture, or the sports fanatics among you may wish to hop on the metro to the Old Trafford football stadium and cricket ground. They're both within easy reach of this conveniently located airport hotel. And if you enjoy the leafy outdoors but don't have time to wander too far, Woodheys Park is a large green space immediately opposite the Altrincham Lodge; a great way to work up an appetite before your evening feast at the Pelican.
This comfortable 3-star venue is fantastic value for money and the hearty grub at the Pelican Inn restaurant next door will have you jet set and ready to fly.
