Location

Bewley’s Hotel is set within the grounds of Manchester Airport.  You can walk to Terminals 1 and 3 within 5 minutes and to Terminal 2 in 10 minutes.  There’s also a shuttle bus in case you’ve got heavy luggage or have difficulty walking.  The hotel is triple glazed to block out any airport noise.

Parking

There are 350 parking spaces at the hotel.  Overnight parking for guests costs £6. Bewley’s offers park, stay and fly packages, which combine one night’s accommodation with 8 or 15 days parking, starting at £89 for 8 days.  So you can leave your car there for the duration of your trip and use the shuttle bus to get to and from the airport.  The vehicle may be parked on-site or moved off-site, depending on how busy the car park is (it’s usually on-site if you only need 8 days parking).  The off-site car park is manned 24 hours a day and has CCTV and the car will brought back for you in time for your return.

Check-in/out and breakfast

Check-in starts at 2 pm, but if you arrive earlier they can keep a hold of your luggage for you.  Check-out time is 12 noon, but late departures are possible by prior arrangement. You can experience a Full Irish Breakfast even though you’re in Manchester, since the Bewley’s chain hails from the Emerald Isle.  There’s also a Continental option.  The buffet is available from 6.30 am to 10 am during the week and 7 am to 11 am at weekends.

Shuttle bus

There’s a free shuttle bus to all 3 terminals at the airport.  This runs 24 hours a day and it comes on request rather than at set times, so there’s no hanging around waiting for the next shuttle departure.  Terminals 1 and 3 are less than 5 minutes on foot from the hotel and Terminal 2 is 10 minutes’ walk.
