Manchester Airport is situated in the north west of England. Not the most convenient airport to us as we live in Gloucester and it is a 3 1/2 hour drive away.
We would fly from here again but would always choose to have a pre and post cruise stay. Here are our hotel reviews from our experiences so far.
Cresta Court Best Western Hotel in Altrincham
We flew from Manchester airport to Dubai to join the Marella Discovery Cruise Ship for a Red Sea Cruise. Prior to flying out we stayed a night at the Cresta Court Best Western Hotel in Altrincham. It was a great choice for a one night stay with plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance so you could start your holiday a day early. Something we love to do.
This hotel is only 15 minute drive from Manchester Airport, and also provides a stay and shuttle service if you prefer.
