On arrival entrance was nice but queued to check in. Room Ok but extremely hot. On returning after night out to room, no sleep was had as rooms on either side full of shouting, screaming, laughing occupants playing loud music. It sounded like a herd of animals were charging up and down the corridor. They were asked to be quiet... More

On entering the hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful (most Mancunians are it seems). When accessing my room however I found it be most "uninviting", in desperate need of refurbishment, lacking in basic commodities and the décor most miserable and shabby to say the least and requiring a complete redecorating. As for a welcoming set of refreshments, I... More

We booked through National Holidays to see Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday Jan 25th so they arranged for our party to stay at The Britannia Hotel on Jan 24th, a Saturday. The rooms were clean and tidy but when we went down for our evening meal things just fell apart. The meal itself was dreadful in every aspect, most of... More

We booked an executive room for two nights, however there was nothing executive about the room. There was two holes in the ceiling with bulbs but no light fittings, the tv was from the Ark and only had five channels (which were fuzzy). The sliding wardrobe door came off in my hand. There were connecting doors to the rooms either... More

Stayed for one night after attending a concert at the arena. Check in was quite busy could have done with a few more staff to reduce queueing time. The room was adequate bed a little too hard for our liking but that's personal choice. The rooms were clean and the public areas of the hotel seemed tidy. Would stay again... More

Booked this hotel on the cheap from booking.com for 1 night because we had tickets for Lion King at the Palace theatre (5 min walk). I almost cancelled after reading some of the reviews but glad we didn't. Ok yes the rooms could do with a makeover and re-carpeting, and I wished I had upgraded to a kingsize bed. Also... More

We booked this room for one night after finding a good deal on booking.com for our trip to see The Lion King Musical. After reading the reviews I travelled to Manchester full of dread. However I was nicely surprised by the beauty of the building, the friendly staff and the spacious surroundings. We had booked an executive room which was... More

We love the Britannia Hotel as we held our wedding reception there 25 years ago and then stayed for our wedding night. Our wedding was amazing and I will always remember arriving at the Brit to a line up of applauding hotel staff, walking up a red carpet into the entrance with the wonderful staircase. We have returned on a... More

Simply awful! Dated and dirty. Smells terrible! Literally made my skin crawl the second I arrived. Room was dirty, dark and smelly. We had no main light on our room, just a lamp! Felt like I was staying at my great great great grandmas! Stains on the walls and floors. The shower was surprisingly very hot and powerful. I should... More
