If you are visiting Manchester to see Manchester United FC play at Old Trafford Football Ground or you are planning to do the Old Trafford Museum and Stadium Tour or buy the latest kit from the Man Utd Megastore, you will probably want to find a convenient hotel near Old Trafford. While all hotels in Manchester city centre are an easy Metrolink tram ride away from Old Trafford, there is actually a good selection of hotels within walking distance of the MUFC stadium. On match day these hotels are obviously busy and need to be booked well in advance, but with enough pre-planning you should be able to find some suitable Old Trafford accommodation from the recommendations below:
Copthorne Hotel – Half a Mile from Old Trafford
The Copthorne Hotel has a great location overlooking the water in Salford Quays, and is just a 5 minute walk from the Manchester United Football Stadium. They offer free car parking to hotel guests and also feature ‘all you can eat’ pre and post match dining which is a great alternative to standing in the street eating a dodgy pie or burger before the game.
Holiday Inn Express Manchester Salford Quays – Less than a Mile from Old Trafford
This Holiday Inn Express is located in Salford Quays, which is an easy walk on match day from MUFC. Rooms include a free hot breakfast and free parking – you can’t say fairer than that!
Ramada Salford Quays Hotel – 1 Mile from Old Trafford
The Ramada in Salford Quays is another convenient hotel for walking to Old Trafford Football Stadium, and they have some interconnecting rooms which are suitable for families of up to 5 people, which might come in handy if you are bringing the whole tribe to the Theatre of Dreams.
Old Trafford Lodge – Half a Mile from Old Trafford Football Ground
Why not stay at one iconic stadium and visit another? Old Trafford Lodge is located at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, home to Lancashire County Cricket Club, and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Manchester United Football Ground. If you are visiting during the cricket season, the Executive Rooms look over the cricket pitch, allowing you to watch a cricket match from the comfort of your own room.
Premier Inn Old Trafford – 200 Metres from Old Trafford
The Premier Inn Old Trafford is about as close as you can stay to Manchester United’s football ground without actually sleeping at the stadium. If you are looking for a cheap hotel near Old Trafford stadium, this is it.
