South of the city centre and approximately a 10-minute drive from the airport, Britannia The Airport Inn Manchester makes for a great stop to relax after exploring the local attractions and before or after the trip. Guests can also head to the nearby Wilmslow with its numerous bars and restaurants, visit Quarry Bank Mill - now a museum of cotton industry or practise their swing at Styal Golf Club.
Sleek and classic, the rooms come complete with en suite facilities, TVs, hairdryers, and tea and coffee provisions.
The Terrace Restaurant caters to appetites with full English breakfast, lighter options, and dinner menu. When in the mood for something to sip on and a snack, guests can pop into the Terrace Bar and Lounge.
Those who still have some energy to burn off can do so at the Spindles Health and Leisure Club which features an indoor pool, gym, sauna and squash courts (charges apply).
