You're paying for the location.

The staircases are amazing, the desk staff and breakfast staff are lovely and it's in a central location... But it's tired, tacky, over-priced, dated and a bit sad.

More hostel than hotel

Posted 15-May-2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Pretty much everything
Location: Location fine
This is a poor quality hotel that is tired and shabby looking. It was clearly a grand building at one point but has not been maintained and modified. It actually felt quite grubby. Check in was slow, the room poorly appointed and the breakfast tasteless. I use hotels a lot - my advice would be to avoid.

Window or no window

Posted 15-May-2015
Pros: The lunchtime and dinner roast Carvery is great value and genuine home cooked food. The lunchtime offer is particularly good value for Sunday roast.
Cons: Bedroom carpet was in terrible condition. I rent out property and would never let a property in that state. Also there is no room service before 5pm.
Location: Best location in city centre for everything.
Stayed here numerous times and decided to chance a room with no window. Actually on the 5th floor you get a skyline type window with an electrically operated window vent slat. So no view but some fresh air (ok if out all night and sleeping all day). I believe the best hotel rooms would be on the 5th (top) floor with a window and an even room number as these overlook the city centre skyline at the front of the building. Some lower floors on the back of the building simply look into people's offices. Breakfast paid in advance is ok and they will make eggs and omelettes to order if you ask.

Great for a weekend stay

Posted 12-May-2015
We stayed for 2 nights. Had a problem with finding the light switch and when we finally found it it wasn't amazing but it was adequate. The room we stayed in had windows; was perfectly fine for our short stay. The radiator didn't work but it wasn't really a big issue. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Would I stay again? Most likely, yes! Thanks for a good stay, Viva Britannia! ;)

Traditional hotel with great service

Posted 11-May-2015
Pros: friendly and polite service
Although the Britannia's glory days are behind it, the fascinating architecture, great location in city centre and excellent service make this a pleasant place to stay. I enjoyed two nights there and recommend it for a change from the bland alternatives.

Great central location, cheap but good quality.

Posted 06-May-2015
Pros: Spacious room. Clean and well presented. Cheap for excellent quality. Central with lots of transport links.
Cons: Maybe slightly better soundproofing, but all in all a very good but cheap hotel.
Location: Plenty of shops, access to all transport systems, surrounded by excellent restaurants and clubs.
Really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Very central location with plenty of transport to get around. Room was very spacious and very clean. Only issue was a noisy couple next door but this wasn't the fault of the hotel. Would gladly stay again.

You get what you pay for, cheap but ok

Posted 05-May-2015
It was clean & room was ok, only paid £40 a night so can't whinge. The breakfast was terrible though, do not waste your money!
