Stayed on a Saturday night with my son after visiting the Etihad. Efficient check in. Staff very friendly. Hotel fairly old but certainly made best use of, clean, central and very efficient service. Bar was good. Lively and £1.95 a pint this afternoon. Very good value for money for a really comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Booked without checking Tripadvisor and it wasn't cheap, £119 for one night. I got there late in the evening so too late to do anything about it when I realised my mistake. The first room I was given reeked of stale cigarettes almost being masked by the sickly smell of whatever they were using to cover it up. I went... More

We stayed at the Britannia Hotel for 1 night mid week mid April for my Husbands Birthday. We arrived early so parked outside to find out where the Car Park was as the hotel had advertised it had one and if we could check in early. Hubby came back with a map to the car park and said it was... More

Walking in the Britannia, the first thing you notice is the imposing chandelier and magnificent staircase. One can't help but think they just entered in the Titanic. And indeed, this place is a massive shipwreck. I stayed there as I was travelling for work. it took the staff half and hour to locate my reservation but they allocated me a... More

One can feel and see that this hotel used to be an upmarket venue, many years ago.... Central location and therefore great to reach and as a starting point to explore the centre of Manchester. Unfortunately the place hasn't seen a renovation, nor upgrade for decades, a real pity...

The check in procedure was very quick and efficient and the staff professional. The stairways were very elaborate and grand which was nice. When I entered my room I was smacked in the face with a heavy smell of smoke, the smell was quite intense as there was hardly any ventilation. I regret that I didn't complain and change rooms,...

Within minutes of entering the building I knew I had made a terrible terrible mistake. My room had the worlds smallest, single bed which was hard and brown. All beige everything, the light didn't turn on and the 1990's tv had two channels. The carpet was dirty and stained and it was very humid and smelly. There was no iron,... More

Urgently needs modernisation: threadbare carpet in room; stained bed linen; tatty state of paintwork; damage to bathroom door and handle falling off; old crt TV and remote with no batteries; lifeless and unappetising food in Overstuffed Pizza restaurant (limited choice); day staff helpful; early morning staff indifferent. Low price only redeeming future. Poor value for money overall.

We have stayed here several times. It's right in the city centre. Some of the rooms are a little dated but are always clean tidy and don't smell. We did have a room which looked like it had a stain on the carpet but this looked like a drink had been spilt. Overall good value for the location. No parking... More

The grand entrance to this no doubt wonderful hotel many years ago unfortunately now sadly a remnant of its former glory. Check in was very slow due to a technical problem,the lack of staff to cope with this was evident with just two on reception trying to cope with the ever growing queue. The hotel is in a poor state... More
