The hotel is round the corner from Heald Green train station. Trains go from there to the airport and to Manchester city centre. If you’re coming by car, leave the M56 at Junction 5 and follow the signs to Manchester Airport. When you come to the roundabout, follow signs for Cheadle. At the traffic lights turn left ( you’ll see the Moss Nook restaurant). When you come to the next set of lights turn right and you will see the Premier Inn is on the right.
The Premier Inn doesn’t have airport views. The on-site hotels are a better option if this is important to you.
