Not a bad hotel, but in need of some TLC. Yes the hotel has a dated feel to it, but that is Britannia Hotels - the idea is that the hotels have an "art deco" feel. If you don't like this kind of thing, I'd seriously suggest a Premier Inn or Travelodge instead. The main problem with the hotel is... More

The staff were very friendly but they were kept so busy so they did not have time to chat. Most of the food was... More
