    Accomodation in Manchester

    I am currently planning a golf trip to Mancheter for the end of September. Does anyone know an affordable B&B or guest house in the area? I'll probably have a rental car, so I will be mobile (even though I might prefer public transport whenever possible, the thought of driving on the left through Manchester traffic make me panic slightly) and I will get lessons at Trafford Golf Centre, so the west side of the city (Trafford, Salford etc.) is preferred.

    Also, if someone want to play a round of golf with me during that time (Sep 25th to Oct 1st), contact me via pm. I'd love the chance to meet some of you that way.
    In the bag: Cobra FlyZ driver, Cobra Baffler XL 3 & 7 wood, Bridgestone GC 22 ° Hybrid, Cleveland Halo 4 Hybrid, MacGregor V-Foil M455 irons 5 - SW, Cleveland Black 60°, Odyssey White Hot putter

    i used to have to go to Manchester quite often with work, i can't recommend any good places to stay, but Parking is a nightmare in the centre, so would think about staying outside if i were you

    I've used Airbnb a few times and always been very good! It's a big city though so plenty of places to stay.

    Salford and surrounding is not nice. As suggested maybe airbnb and look around Hale, Bowdon or Sale. All just a few miles from the Trafford golf centre, on the right side of Manchester and much more pleasant. Hopefully some locals will give you better info, I used to live nearby but my knowledge is out of date now.

    Re: Accomodation in Manchester

    Not stayed in many hotels in Manchester as I live here, but the Travelodge at Trafford Park is decent enough and have stayed there previously. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Not anything fancy but will do the job for a few nights. Also right next to Trafford Golf Centre, so if you're planning on being down there quite a bit it's very close.

    Personally think the premier Inns are better than the Travelodge.

    Airbnb is a very good option, there are 2 premier inns at the Trafford Centre including one beside the Golf Centre

    Re: Accomodation in Manchester

    I would look at Altrincham... very close to the airport and Trafford Golf. Some nice courses too! Dunham Forrest and Ringway are really close. Will have to see how work is, but could host at Lymm if you like....
