3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Satyed here in May 2015, the whole place just seems tired and in need of an upgrade, the room while clean , had seen better days and the food provided in the fixed price menu was awful, and from an extremely limited choice. Its one saving grace was the friendly and helpful staff always willing to help.

When I booked this hotel it was due to an early flight the following day and I just wanted something cheap and cheerful however this place is far from cheerful and even though its low cost I still felt ripped off considering what I got. The parking is tight and not secure as they just leave the gates open, the... More

Friendly staff adequate for an overnight stay before a flight the room was clean but smelled very strongly of cigarette smoke a lot of late night noise from people who had been drinking . I was woken up a few times by people banging on doors. The breakfast was all you can eat which was good value for £5 as... More

It only claims to be three star and that is reflected in the price. I chose this hotel as it advertised disable facilties on its web site,also secure parking. The plus side, reception friendly, evening meal value for its price and edible. Breakfast at £5 was cheap, but very poor quality, I am glad it was a half price offer.... More

Beds were ok, the noise was terrible and the breakfast consisted of toast that was hard and cold with bacon that was at best warm for £79 quid a night though I guess you get what you pay for!! Paying 100 extra and staying at a different hotel next time

In my book, Reception should be a place where there's a welcoming smile; and this was missing when I approached the desk. Two people, and one showing the younger one "the ropes", even though that's just what we customers pull! My questions about what had been promised by the tour operator were rather brushed aside, as being inaccurate; and not... More

I stayed here with family for three nights in May. The hotel seemed very much a high turnover airport hotel. Reception was very variable ranging from friendly, to inefficient, to frankly disinterested. The public areas, particularly stairwells, gave an impression of being very tired. The corridor on the second floor was well kept, and the rooms we stayed in were... More

This hotel was one of the poorest I have stayed at. If you are only staying one night then its ok i guess. The decor is old fashion. Rooms did not have a phone that connected to the reception so I had to use my mobile. Bath was falling to bits. No wifi in bedrooms. Food was very average. Poor... More

Can I start by saying that I don't usually write critical reviews as I know how much work goes into running a hotel, but feel compelled to inform others of my group's experience at the Britannia. I and my colleagues used this hotel while working in Manchester and every experience - rooms, food, facilities - were all very disappointing. We... More
