I stayed here for one night for business and it was grim. To say the rooms need a refurbishment would be accurate, furniture is old and shabby and the bathroom needs a complete refit. The room smelt damp and was not clean, the quilt was thin and inadequate, I could go on... Then to cap it all the fire alarm... More

I'm normally a pretty generous scorer, so a 1 is a first for me. The Britannia lived up to its reputation, I could stop there, but I won't! I'd definitely say at the unpleasant end of the range. So what didn't I like? Arriving at reception you're met with a flurry of signs advising all sorts of things - 3... More

Having had the room booked by my company months in advance, I arrived late at night to find the room I had been allocated was a smoker's room. It had a really over-powering odour of stale smoke. I asked to change room and I was told that it was the only room available in the whole hotel, so I had... More

The location is great but that's the best feature. The reception is nice but the rooms are in need of some tlc. We were literally in and out without hanging about so was ok. Please scrub up. We never ate here.

It was my first time in britania hotel to be honest the feedbacks had put me off. But after seen it for myself I have to say it's not that bad. It does need modernisation but the room I stayed in was lovely. It was clean nice bed. I would say to anyone to see for yourself. Some people give... More

Five years ago I walked into a TV repair shop to sell my wide screen Sony TV, at the time the owner said he couldn't take it as he couldn't sell it... I threw the TV out... oh how I wish I'd known about The Britannia... famous for being the Hotel where televisions come to die... I may have made... More

Stayed here with National Holidays. Good location right in the town centre. Room better lit than many - I was actually able to read in the evening! However - curtains had slipped off their hooks in several places; valances hung crookedly on the beds, and there were cracks radiating out from the washbasin plughole. And the room was stifling, even... More

Other than it's Central location this hotel really has nothing to boast about. The lobby is of reasonable standard and looks clean and up to scratch but you won't find any porters at this hotel, far from it. Once you venture beyond the lobby it becomes apparent that the last real renovation happened in a bygone decade. Worn carpets, damaged... More
