It’s hard to find accommodation in Manchester when there’s game on at Old Trafford; Manchester United fans flood into the city from all over the world and as usual you’ll find it hard to book in anywhere.
On match days all of the hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfast establishments will be full with football fans; so people hoping to book a weekend away loose out and may find them selfs looking further a field.
So big TIP! make sure you book well in advance so your not disapointed.
The Cornerstones Guest House, is just 4.5 miles from the ground.
It’s independent and rated in the Michelin Accommodation Guide. There’s a bus stop just outside the front door and the metro’s just a five minute walk away.
If your unlucky enough not to find accommodation close to the city/ground all is not lost; below is a list of Manchester’s suburbs which you can add to your search terms to drill down the independents that will help you on your way.
If you search on Google, the rules are, if you enter an area it will only throw up establishments with addresses in that area; so if you enter ‘Hotel Manchester’ as a search term you’ll only see mostly city centre accommodation with the large hotels popping up first.
Most of the time you miss out on the independents and it’s really hard to find, if there is such a thing, a city guest house, they just don’t existed.
Add these areas to your search terms:
Sale, Salford, Eccles, Trafford Park, Davyhulme, Flixton, Urmston, Irlam,
Carrington, Partington, Broadheath, Dunham, Hale, Altrincham, Timperley Chorlton.
All these areas are do-able with Sale, Eccles, Altrincham, Timperley and Chorlton all having Metro Stations which will take you to the city/Old Trafford.
You won’t fine a city guest house but these are the close’s to areas around Manchester.
