Stayed here via a coach trip with National Holidays. Really not impressed as it Was overrun with refugees and their children. Whilst I appreciate their predicament It was a very uncomfortable atmosphere to be in. All public areas are strewn with groups of single men, children running around bored And family's grouped together just staring. The hotel it's self is... More

Well where do I start. The place is full of Asylum seekers who sit around the hotel on their mobiles and laptops. It was that bad I wouldn't let my wife go to the toilet without me following her. This used to be a really nice place but would never stay again as you don't feel safe with Somali's and... More

My flight was cancelled and the airline put us up in this hotel for the night. The grounds and building looked pleasant enough, and the car park was absolutely packed which gave us the impression the hotel must be very nice. After looking on here and other review sites, we found out that holidayers use the car park to store... More

Difficult to use TripAdvisor's simplistic categories on this place it's so patchy, but be nice... start with the good bit. The room was clean and tidy, ditto the bathroom - probably because recently refurbished. (Private) dining room and bar service cheerful and efficient. Now the rest... Front of house dead scruffy. Reception off-hand and 'automated'. Other clientele (ourselves excepted of... More

The hotel itself was perfectly OK, if in need of a bit of updating. My single room was clean and tidy and well furnished, though it did overlook some sort of air conditioning plant which was quite noisy. Fortunately, being the winter I didn't need the window open. The restaurant looked a bit like a throwback to a Butlins holiday... More

This place has to be seen to be believed. I think Britannia should consider which market they are aiming for, because at the minute it is more of a hostel than an hotel. If it was purely a hotel then I think there is a good basis for improvement. The food was good in parts and the rooms were ok,... More

The one thing going for this hotel were the staff , they were pleasant and helpful. We were booked into a double executive room, bed and breakfast , group rate, which was a reasonable price. We wouldnt have been very impressed if we had paid full price in a standard room. Yes it is a budget hotel but should have... More

We stayed at the Britannia Country House Hotel in Manchester, pre-flight. It was comfortable with plenty of car parking. We were on a package that included wine with dinner.
