I meant to write here when i returned about the hotels in stayed in near manchester airport. anyway here goes.
If you have an early flight like i didi ts easier to stay in a hotel overnight than travel early from your home. I chose the "Etrop Grange Hotel" Its an old victorian mansion with no lifts, but the staff are fantastic, i mentioned i had problems with mobility and carrying, they offered me a room on the first floor to be sorted immediatly, but anyway i chose to stay in the original room on the 1st floor, they carried my suitcase up two flights of stairs and all the way to the room, and came up at 4am to take it back down for me. Everything is accessible in the room, and they have a nice walk in shower in some rooms. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The beds are incredibly comfortable!! Free tea, coffee, biscuits too
Also a free taxi to and from the airport to the hotel.
On the way home i arrived late and trains from the airport had been cancelled becuase of works, so i stayed in the "Crowne Plaza" The staff were not as involved in helping but its a huge hotel with lift access to every floor. Rooms were big aswell and easy to navigate, as far as i am aware there are some disabled access rooms avaliable, but everything in the other rooms is accessible, just if you want a bath and cant get into a tub then, thats where your stuck.
i would really suggest the Etrop Grange if you have to stay nearby, it often has special offers on so rooms are quite cheap often. and the staff are just really wonderful.
