Manchester Airport hotel has high hops for new craft ale – ibis Budget launches ‘Looking Fly’ exclusively for guests

ibis Budget launches ‘Looking Fly’ exclusively for guests

Ibis Budget Manchester Airport has launched an IPA exclusively for guests.

The 262-bed hotel which opened at Manchester Airport in December last year has created Looking Fly – a mix of Maris Otter and Munich Malts from Britain and Germany alongside Cascade and Chinook hops. Dry hopping brings a boldness to their 4.2% golden-coloured ale.

Guests can purchase a 330ml can of Looking Fly from the grab and go area on the ground floor of the hotel OR they can enjoy it for FREE during August by sharing a selfie from the hotel during their stay and tagging @ibisbudgetmanairport on Insta or TikTok. Guests taking part will also be automatically entered into a competition to win a future night’s stay at the hotel.

The IPA was named Looking Fly following a social media competition earlier this year to help name the ale.

Ben McNally, Director of Sales & Marketing at ibis Budget Manchester Airport said: “Our Looking Fly IPA has been created exclusively for our guests so they can start their holiday off that bit earlier! The beauty of an overnight stay with us is that it takes all the stress away, you can check your bags in the night before with the Twilight Check-in service, then walk over to your terminal in the morning and now with our IPA you can enjoy a drink on us the night before.”

ibis budget Manchester Airport is the first and only budget hotel located within walking distance from Manchester Airport’s main terminals and within easy walking distance from the train station. From family holidays to business trips, the hotel offers everything needed for a comfortable, convenient and cost-effective stay.

As the first hotel in the UK to be designed with the global brand’s “reboost” design concept, guests can enjoy an original and colourful design, influenced by the urban sport universe and Manchester itself. Contemporary social hubs and smart, airy bedrooms help to create a lively and relaxed atmosphere.

The hotel’s bedrooms merge functionality and easy comfort, offering the opportunity to take a break and recharge before or after a flight, and guests can choose from a range of room categories including Standard Double Room, Standard Twin Room, Standard Triple Room, and Standard Double Accessible rooms. Travellers can unwind with free high-speed Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV and a luminous shower, before settling in for a rejuvenating night’s sleep in an incredibly comfortable Sweet Bed by ibis budget.

A great breakfast is essential for any trip and the hotel’s tasty continental breakfast selection awaits visitors to the hotel.
