Good location, bad hotel

Posted 11-Aug-2014
The hotel is in a really good spot, close to many restaurants and bars and also to the Arndale shopping centre but the hotel is not worth the money. We paid 95 euros for one night stay and the room was small, the bed was tiny and very uncomfortable, the rooms were old and tired and run down, our only window was up near the ceiling and look like a prison window, there was no air conditioning and it was stifling out, the remote for the tv didnt work and the tv looked like something from the 90's, and lastly there was only 1 plug in the room so a row ensued over who would get to charge their phone. The bathroom was fine and clean. The restaurant down in the basement was vile DO NOT eat there, but the waitress was lovely. Definitely would not go back.

Looks can be deceiving!!

Walking into hotel you think it's smart and grand. Shame the rest of hotel didn't stand up to the lobby standards. We stayed in an executive double, located down a nauseating 80s peach corridor only to find that although the room was clean and spacious it was boring, had filthy windows, peeling wall paper and wonkey mirrors. Am so glad we didn't pay full price as the disappointment would have been unbearable. Also ordered room service which didn't even show up! Smarten up the rest of the hotel and this would be a gold mine!!

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.
