We went here on a coach trip with leisuretime to visit Coronation Street. First impression from outside was a bit grubby looking. We went inside and what a grand staircase and chandelier. Quick check in ant to our room. It was on first floor and was a good size. The shower was amazing. Having food in the Restuarant we weren't... More

Stayed at the Britannia for 6 nights in August 2014. The entrance of this grand hotel hides what lurks behind the closed doors. The staff was accommodating but not overly friendly and one had to work hard to engage them in anything other than a basic conversations. The hotels location is central to Manchester Piccadilly and its closeness to China... More

When we got to our room the card didn't work,the housekeeper tried to work it for us but it still didn't work so she... More

extra for breakfast. We paid £39 for a room which was OK. Bed was not comfortable and very warm maybe because it was a tiny double. Couldn't stand under the shower. But as I said we didn't pay a lot. However, breakfast we did pay for as an extra. We have stayed at this Britannia and others before but to... More

Okay, the room was cheap. Very cheap. But the hotel itself is more than a little dated. The entrance hall is pretty grand, but this isn't translated into the rooms. They're dark, old and a distinct air of the 80s. They definitely need a refit. The location can't be faulted and what interaction I had with staff was pleasant enough,... More

Bought an overnight deal for my partner and I, and one for my parents who met us in Manchester, an executive room, bottle of wine and full breakfast for £49.00 per couple, we'd read lots of negative reviews beforehand so were prepared, we were pleasantly suprised, its a lovely grand old building, comfy bed and friendly staff, couldn't fault it...
