Hotel extremely in need on refurbishment, will no doubt cost millions to do, however we encountered very pleasant staff, clean room even though dated, carpet needed good clean as very stained in places with nails poking through. It served a purpose of 2 nights sleeping, would not however return unless updated. It is a fabulous old hotel and it is... More

This hotel is very Grand, but the rooms and service are not up to scratch! When we arrived it took a very long time to checked in as the staff were certainly not quick and they allowed people to push in the queue! When we were eventually served and got our key we went to the room to find it... More

I stayed at The Britannia Hotel on 16th April with my family and it was fantastic. It looked a little bit tired on the outside but once inside it transported you back to another more gentler age. The staircase was magnificent all the way up to the 5th floor. You could imagine ladies in crinolines coming down them in a... More

Where to start! We stayed on the 1st floor for 1 night. Its such a grand and lovely building, stayed here once before its also in a great area of Manchester. Bad Things 1. The light buzzed in the bathroom every time you put it on 2. The TV keeps making strange buzzing sounds every 3/4 mins 3. Always a... More

Stayed here and I guess you get what you pay for. Saying that it wasn't that cheap and certainly more than a premium lodge or holiday inn. After staying here those places look like the Ritz Paris. The room was unbearably hot and had to purchase some flip flops so that my feet didn't touch the floor which was covered... More

I don't normally leave reviews but I drafted this one in my head last night when I was woken up the third time. The first room I was allocated on the second floor only had a curtain to cover two thirds of the window. I'm not hugely fussy but I want a full curtain! In fairness to the staff they... More

Childcare sorted & looking forward to a night out in Manchester to see Elbow play M.E.N (fantastic!). Arrived at hotel to very brusque reception, so headed off to room which was on top floor. I'd paid extra for a window which was so high up there was no chance of seeing out to any view. Straightaway the room had an... More

We were here 2 nights with a National Holidays coach trip. We thought it extremely good value for a central location. Room was very nice, nice bathroom, very clean. Superbly comfortable bed. The staircase is stunning. The bar and communal areas are lovely, with an eclectic mix of old furniture. Only one downside we found, the food in the evenings... More
