I stayed in this hotel as part of the National Holiday overnight stay. The hotel doesn't look very appealing from the outside. Check in was pleasant, downstairs looked okay and recently updated with a small appealing bar. The bedroom was clean, but very dated, old fashioned decor with an ancient tv. The headboard on the wall was bigger than the... More

This hotel overall is quite old and rundown. It's much in need of updating and a fresh lick of paint and new furniture. The carpets are old and dirty. The bed in the room was old uneven and not comfortable. It was a bit like Fawlty Towers. The only plus point was it was close to the airport for an... More

If you make the same mistake as I did and book an overnighter without reading these reviews you will regret it as I did. We arrived at 11pm at night after flying back from a holiday, hungry and tired. We asked if there was food available as they advertised a 24 hour room service and was given two take away... More

Arrived here at 3:20pm and had to wait at least 10 minutes to be checked in. There were 3 members of staff - 2 men were helping one lady, and a woman stood there doing nothing. Another guest tried to cut in front of me to check in when it was my turn & the guy did inform him I... More

Simply you don't want to stay there. Period. I spent a night in this hotel and I can tell you it was an unpleasant experience not to be repeated. I am not an English-speaking person but I spent 3 years in the UK and I believe I understand and speak English a decent level. Well, check in was terrible as... More

we originally booked to stay at the Britannia country house hotel only to be messed around and turned away on arrival. instead they redirected us here with no refund or discount providing it was a large downgrade on the hotel we had originally booked. the room was small and dingy the only upside was the sky sports in the bar......

We stayed here for one night before flying and yes I was dubious due to the reviews however I was pleasantly surprised : Booking in was easy and both the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. We had requested a top floor room and yes the furniture needs updating and a better TV would be nice but everything was... More
