I went on a school trip to London this June and we stayed one night in the Britannia Hotel. Good thing it was only one night! When we arrived we met Bernie who told us bad jokes and said we could call him Uncle Fester or Shrek. Then, we went to our rooms which were horrible. There was graffiti on... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a coach trip so had no choice but to accept what we had as the coach trip was fairly cheap. To be fair this was probably the cleanest Britannia Hotel I've stayed in as I've had the pleasure of staying in a couple before. The room had recently had a new carpet... More

Stayed at the Britannia Coventry recently for two nights. Location of this hotel is excellent. Minutes away from the city centre with fantastic shops. Located next door to Coventry Cathedral which is definitely worth a visit as part of the old Cathedral is still standing. This hotel is very basic and unfortunately most staff are not very pleasant and do... More

Unfortunately unable to choose the hotel this time round as part of a package coach trip deal with travel style setting off from Grimsby. ONLY thing going for the hotel is its location central and close to everything you could want from a trip to Coventry. Check in rushed but problem free. Corridors smelt of damp and debris from rotten... More

I had heard bad things about this hotel due to its location, however I must say I was impressed when I stayed there - the hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and the food was tasty and well cooked, I didn't hear lots of noise from the nearby nightclub at all, which is the complaint I had heard from...

Absolutely dreadful check in. Despite showing confirmation of pre-payment by a corporate travel agents VPC, I was challenged for the room cost and it took ages to resolve. Breakfast was mega busy; long long queues for the hot buffet counter; dry and burnt food items. Room was OK(ish) - Bed springs were protruding through the matress and windows so dirty... More
