Stayed here as part of a travelstyle coach tour on dinner bed and breakfast. I thought dinner was quite nice, not loads of choice but what i had was nice. Breakfast was also ok. The room was quite small but comfy. The noise from the bar however was horrible and went on and on,so barely slept. The hotel right in... More

Have to say I was impressed with this hotel. Whilst the Britannia Hotel on Portland Street, is showing signs of wear and age in place, the beautiful character of the building makes up for it. The hotel is immaculate and the room we stayed in was on the 4th floor. For an economy room, there were home comforts such as... More

Having booked a room for a saturday night and requested a room not on the ground floor, I was prepared for there to be an uncomfortable level of noise penetrating the windows from nearby night time economy venues. What I was unprepared for, in my (ground floor) room was noise and vibrations from bar wave, below my room. An organisation... More

This is very easily the worst hotel I have ever had the mis fortune to stay in. To be honest Britannia have got an awful reputation but I thought as it was nearly £140 for one night it might have been ok - alas not. Trashy with average rooms, reception staff barely able to communicate, had to change rooms 3... More

Cheap but not so cheerful !Wont... More

I booked a last minute single room here for a night out in Manchester. I contacted the hotel directly to book & got a good rate. Check in was swift & the room itself, although dated was comfortable, clean & warm. A few days after my return home I realised that I was missing my ipad mini, so contacted the... More

Excellent location was great especially since we went to Trafford Centre for shopping and accommodation albeit was outdated was adequate for a nights rest. The hotel was cheap and basic which I would use again.

Our last night in the UK before leaving for Italy. We found this hotel by chance and we soon got a good impression. The staff was kind and helpful, the room quite comfortable, the restaurant clean and cheap. Unfortunately, the hall needs restyling and the WiFi is not always available . All in all, good value for money.
