We stayed at this hotel like many others as it is ideal if you are travelling somewhere from Manchester Airport. It's a cheap hotel and therefore is about what you would expect in terms of it's decor etc.. which is a bit tired and needs a good refurb but you get what you pay for - the carpets really could...

I didn't read the reviews before booking (a first for me) and thank goodness I didn't, as the reviews would have put me off. But I am glad we stayed at the Britannia Country House Hotel. Yes the hotel is very dated but it is clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. The spa/pool was great value for £5... More

Air conditioning in the room was noisy and it was annoying. Mattress was hard, uncomfortable so I had difficulty sleeping. My room was located on the first floor, above the main entrance and when other guests smoke there, the smoke fills my entire room. There were no available complimentary shampoo and conditioner bottles except for the broken liquid soap dispenser... More

Anniversary weekend away to visit Green's restaurant, Didsbury. We had booked in at this hotel for one night B&B. After reading previous comments I was a little apprehensive to say the least. On arrival we were treated with a friendly welcome and given our room which was on the 4th floor (room 472) and was pleasantly surprised. It was large... More

Handy hotel for night out in Didsbury. Large traditional hotel. Large bedrooms with large, comfy beds. Good night's sleep. Nice caesar salad for lunch and plentiful, tasty breakfast. Spent an hour or so in gym and spa which was ok - the pool was a bit on the cool side for a spa. Enjoyed it-would definitely go again.

This was our second time staying here using the stay and fly service. Once again it was very nice and clean and the transfer service is brilliant. Would 100% recommend it to anyone flying from Manchester airport. We will definitely be staying again next year.

Staying here for one night after returning from holiday. Had to wait at reception, no acknowledgement were there and not greatly welcoming. On way to room hall and stairway to room had unpleasant lingering smell. This did not smell clean and was attempted to be disguised through air freshener which made the bad aroma even worse. Room reasonable size. Very... More

Stayed only 1 night (thank god) in what I can only describe as poor crack hostel type facilities. My only positive is the staff were friendly. The room was appalling.. small, foul smell, broken door lock, broken window, stained carpet, broken shower door and no iron available for in room use ... an ironing room was available to use instead...
