Quality Hotel Manchester Unveils Refurbishments

The Quality Hotel Manchester East / Sportcity has unveiled its most recent developments, which form part of an ongoing £1 million refurbishment programme. This 90 bedroom hotel, which is part of Choice Hotels Europe, has undergone significant refurbishment and renovation over the past two years, resulting in a stylish, contemporary but comfortable ambiance throughout the hotel.

The most recent work has included the complete refurbishment of its 33 top floor bedrooms. These rooms have been redecorated with bright, vibrant colours and have new, larger workspaces, improved bathroom facilities and modern furniture.  All the hotel’s standard and larger executive rooms now include: tea and coffee making facilities, en-suite bathroom, Satellite TV, Hairdryer, Direct Dial Telephone with modem, and a desk area. In addition, three of the bedrooms have been converted for disabled guests. 

In the past year, the conference rooms and public areas, including the bar and restaurant, have also been upgraded and the hotel plans to introduce air conditioning into one of its boardrooms to improve its meeting facilities.  The hotel can provide a wide range of events facilities such as exclusive suites, boardrooms for small meetings and larger function rooms for banqueting for up to 100 people.

The hotel’s new look restaurant and bar are perfect for residents and non-residents alike, providing a warm, relaxing environment with excellent food and wine.

Quality Hotel Manchester East / Sportcity, which was awarded runner up in the Cheshire/Lancashire Life Magazine’s “Manchester Hotel of the Year” Award 2003, is located just 1.5 miles from the City Centre, and 2 miles from the Motorway Network (M60 Jnt 24) on the A57 Hyde Road.  It is a convenient stop over location for business travellers and also for leisure visitors who wish to enjoy Manchester’s superb shops, attractions and nightlife.  The hotel is also a perfect venue for local people who are looking for a relaxing place to enjoy good food or for those in search of a special venue for a family celebration or corporate function.


The ongoing refurbishment at the Quality Hotel Manchester East / Sportcity forms part of Choice Hotels Europe’s ongoing programme of investment in its UK portfolio.  The company has already spent £28 million in recent years and plans to continue to strengthen its brand and market position across Europe through acquisition and investment. 

Vicci Hollies, General Manager commented: “I am delighted with the most recent refurbishment work and I believe that the ongoing developments have greatly improved the overall atmosphere and style of the hotel.  I look forward to welcoming guests from the local area and also further afield to visit us and experience all that we have to offer.”
