Living in Devon and needing to fly from Manchester I wondered at the logistical challenge. Easy peasy!! Flew Exeter to Manchester. Free phone direct to Clayton Hotel for free shuttle in arrival lounge. Minibus arrived within five minutes with very helpful chauffeur. Clean quiet rooms despite being next to the car park and runway! Very good breakfast. Bar and restaurant for the evening. Good food but not much in the veggie options. Pretty soulless but it did the job! Comfortable bed so was very fit for purpose!!
Easy shuttle to airport (few minutes) next morning.
