I paid for afternoon tea via Groupon for 2 people for my Mothers belated birthday treat. It was better than expected. The food was so fresh and so much of it. The staff were so polite and attentive. Would definitely recommend and go again. Absolute bargain of a price

Needed a hotel to stay in at very short notice for a business trip. The only nearby place that had any rooms available was The Britannia Hotel. Now I know why. Everything is severely out-of-date – including the ‘customer service’ (or lack of it). On arrival I was greeted harshly and told that I could not check-in, even though I... More

Dreadful hotel which is living in the past. The directors should look at themselves and hang their heads in shame. Compared with other cheaper national chains this hotel need to look at what it is offering at its price in the city of Manchester. The only thing this has going for it is the central location no more no less.... More

Room was dated but clean and quite spacious. Stayed midweek for business and although I could hear people moving in the next rooms (creaking floorboards and scratching around to use plugs) no noise from the hotel. That said the windows are not double glazed and so quite a bit of noise comes in from outside. Only a single plug socket... More

If I was walking outside the hotel, it looked nice. When I stepped in the hotel it was still good looking. The interior (outside the room) is very good! But that moment when I stepped in my "cheap" room, I realised that everything isn't so bright at all. That room looked like something from 70's. Bed was awful and it... More

Very impressive rooms, classic look was a bonus for me. Stayed for 3 nights. Location is impressive too, walking to Piccadilly and tramp stations were so convenient. Plenty of eateries around. Asked the concierge direction to Old Trafford, they gave a print out of a guide, from which tramp to take and how to walk to the stadium. Nice friendly... More

I read the reviews for this hotel after i had booked and was a bit worried about how it would be. The staff were helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and warm. It was good value for money. It was a convenient place to stay with bars and eating places nearby.

Stayed for one night in early January. The foyer area is impressive and checkin was easy. When I arrived in the room I was a little conflicted. The room was a little squishy, but had all the promised amenities. The main room however had no main light meaning that the small bedside lamps had to light the room, which I... More
