Book Premier Inn Wilmslow at Airport


This Premier Inn is about 3 miles by road from Manchester Airport, in the pretty village of Wilmslow.  The hotel is set in the Lindow Common Gardens.


There’s free parking at the hotel, both overnight and long term.  You can leave the car for the duration of your holiday if you like, and pick it up when you fly back into Manchester, but you do so at your own risk.

Check-in/out and breakfast

Check-in starts at 2 pm and the normal check-out time is noon the next day.  If you are in need of a bit of extra shut eye, you can book a late check-out up until 4 pm for £15. You can set yourself up for a long journey at the all you can eat breakfast buffet, which runs from 7 am to 9 am during the week and 8 am to 10 am at weekends.

Shuttle bus

There’s no shuttle bus service from this hotel.  It’s about a 3 mile drive to Manchester Airport.

Hotel facilities

The Premier Inn has a restaurant that serves a lounge menu throughout the day and a Thai a la carte menu in the evenings from 6 pm.  The hotel also has a bar which shows Sky Sports, so you won’t miss the latest match whilst you’re away from home.  Business travellers can book the meeting room, which holds up to 20 people theatre-style.  The receptionist is on duty 24 hours a day for all guests, just in case you need any help.

Guest rooms

There are 37 en suite bedrooms in the hotel.  They all have king size beds for a comfortable night’s sleep, and are equipped with a digital TV (with more than 80 channels, so you’re bound to be able to find something on), telephone and WiFi access, for which there is a charge.  In the morning you can wake yourself up with a strong cup of coffee or tea, and you can blast away the cobwebs in the power shower.


Guide dogs are welcome in the Premier Inn.  There are blue badge parking spaces outside and 2 disabled guest rooms.  The building is accessible with ramps and lifts.  A hearing loop has also been fitted and reception can supply you with a vibrating pillow fire alarm.


The nearest train station is in Wilmslow, half a mile away.  If you’re coming by car, leave the M56 at Junction 6 and turn right towards Wilmslow on the A538.  The Premier Inn is 3 miles down this road, on the right hand side next to the Boddington & Dragon.

Airport views

There are no airport views from the hotel itself, but it is near the Manchester Airport Viewing Park where you can see lots of action and take an airport walk.  The entrance is just a bit further up the A538, on the edge of the airport’s grounds.
