Great hotel location, needs refurbishing urgently

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Hotel room had peeling wallpaper, deseparately in need of redecorating, the double bed was small, the head board was a foot wider on each side and the bed was on 4 thin legs, that made it very insecure

My 2 Nights at the Britannia

Posted 03-Jul-2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: See above.
Location: See above.
The Britannia is in a good location in the heart of Manchester. It provides good value for money considering it's in the city centre; the staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good range of food, promotions and special offers eg: on wine. However, the range of beer in the bar was narrow - no draught ales. I had a very comfortable room with good bathroom facilities. However, the air was stuffy and warm, and there were two fleas, a moth and a mosquito [which I commented on at Reception]. With only 9 TV channels, I was disappointed with the choice of viewing.

Good hotel

Posted 01-Jul-2014
Pros: Staff were great and the location is ideal for a city break in Manchester
Cons: A lot of the rooms are a bit small with limited views, you could also tell that the decor was old
Location: Great area for visiting Manchester City centre for shopping or a night out. Armadale shopping centre is 10min walk, close to Chinatown as well.
Turned up early and asked could we leave our bags somewhere, the staff told us they would book us in as rooms were available so we were free to enjoy the rest of our day.

Perfect location, walking distance to all the pubs

Posted 16-Jun-2014
Lovely old hotel. Spectacular staircase. Room was fine, clean and tidy, although rather warm (we stayed in June 2014) the "aircon" was a bit old... Just an electric wall fan really, but everything else fine. Shower, although old, worked better than most modern hotels we've used. Great value for money, and will use again.

Hotel for upmarket clubbers who don't need sleep

Posted 15-Jun-2014
Banging club below hotel, you can hear and even feel the bass until the early hours of the morning. Shame as lovely looking hotel, efficient staff and good facilities. I'd stay again if I was partying.

Easy access to city centre

Posted 08-Jun-2014
Pros: In the city centre
Cons: Needs updating
Location: If you are out for a night around Manchester this is a really good location
The hotel was nice but the rooms were disappointing. Very small & old fashioned with no window

Handy location

Not the first time at the Britannia, and won't be the last. Great rate paid for a hotel right in the centre of town. V v handy for the Village.

not good for wheelchairs

Posted 26-May-2014
Pros: the decor was very nice
Cons: more consideration given to wheelchair access
there was no ramp for wheelchair access at the main steps the staff said to go round the outside of the hotel and they would open the door from the inside of the hotel, we walked round but no sign of door or staff member eventually found the right door and got in
