With some trepidation (having read some scare stories on TripAdvisor) we set off for our Twixmas break. The only accurate part of the previous reviews was that the decor was a bit tired. But, who cares, it was very clean (room service every day) the bed was very comfortable, we had excellent choice and volume of food - breakfast and... More

Very disappointed with this hotel. It has no character very dated and worn, past its sell by date. Very tiny room, badly arranged furniture worse I have ever stayed in!! Was promised a free bottle of wine for completing survey on booking-hotel had no record of this so could not fulfil the offer. The breakfast was very basic, cheap coffee,... More

Had booked through lastminute.com and apparently when I arrived an hour later my booking hadn't reached them. Instead of being shown to a room and dealing with this later (I had a confirmation email which is showed them!) I was made to wait in the bar area. I was eventually shown to a room which looked like it was meant... More

Booked twin room direct from Britannia 2 weeks ago, as there was a promotion. We paid £ 50.50 in total for the night, BB and evening meal, ordered a bottle of Wine for £ 6.00, payable on arrival. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The hotel is dated and needs TLC. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious, the net... More

Really good hotel for value for money. Good buffet food, room was massive (family room for 2 of us) came with double bed single bed and bunk beds. Shower good. Staff very chilled and helpful. Only issue is quite far to walk if you are 2 lifts away. hotel is massive !

Paid about £25 a night for a Friday and Saturday stay. The room was clean but far too hot. The heating was on very high with no option to turn it down which meant we had to have the fan going and windows open. Water pressure in the shower was rubbish. I expected to be woken early on Saturday and... More

This hotel is now owned by Britannia, a brand that tends to own some fairly old properties. The Carrington has seen better days but it's still okay. I had a single room with a good bed and sufficient space to be comfortable. Sufficient power points for charging a phone etc and a kettle with tea etc pleased me. Quite a... More
