Driving past the Britannia Waterside Hotel which has an enormous sign outside offering Afternoon Tea - our party of 4 thought this would be perfect so drove in around 4.45pm on a Sunday. Asked at reception initially for coffee and cakes as we'd had a large lunch earlier. Advised we couldn't have this as they were about to start serving... More

It's not now Appearance - more duck tape than carpet in most public areas. 1/5 Room - had to move rooms on 2nd day. No lights & no maintenance staff working at the weekend. Holes in the curtains. 1/5 Reception - no complaints, friendly... More

We stayed in this hotel a few years ago, we were horrified at the moth eaten curtains in the lounge area and were told the place was soon to be refurbished. Here's where the disappointment comes in. The motheaten curtains have been replaced by cobwebs! It's obvious that the carpets in the public areas have been replaced, but the corridors... More

The initial impression was of a once prosperous hotel, now struggling to survive. My bedroom was clean and comfortable, but painted blockwork walls look, and are, cheap. The swimming pool was closed. Despite a notice in the bedroom advising that lunch was served from 12:30, the restaurant was closed as there is no longer a chef on duty for lunch.... More

My husband was competing in a local pool competition, the Waterside was recommended to us as a cheap place to stay nearby. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, and our room was spotless, with a really comfortable bed. Decor isn't luxurious, or right up to the minute, but what do you expect for the fantastic rates? The room was... More
