The hotels.com listing for this hotel states that there is transport between airport and hotel. There is not. It cost me £45 in taxi fares to get to/from Airport. Check-in staff told is that they had repeatedly told hotels.com that the listing was innacurate but they had failed to correct it. I strongly suspect that this was not true. Room was shabby. Breakfast was poor. Avoid.

I’m literally sat typing this at 3:03am because I can’t get any sleep. - When I arrived, the 2 members of staff working at reception were arguing with each other and the girl who served me was in a foul mood (unprofessional) - The bed is uncomfortable - Charged £7 to use wifi for one night stay (most hotels offer it in the package) - There were hairs in the bath from the last person (during covid-19 pandemic) - The soap dispenser in the bath was empty - The hotel seems to be used as a hostel for some people to live in and as it’s after 3am, I can still hear people with the TV on in their room loud. - People chatting outside whilst smoking. It means when I open the window, I smell the smoke and risk setting the fire alarm off. I didn’t realise it was a Britannia hotel. I’ve had shocking experiences in these hotels before but until you get here, you don’t realise as the name isn’t obvious on the booking. If I’d known I’d have avoided it.

If your looking for somewhere cheep & cheerful this is the place. Staff were friendly food enjoyable, kids enjoyed the pizzas and they loved spending time in the pool. We have used this hotel many times when using Manchester air port as the discount on parking is really reasonable.

It seemed ideal. On the doorstep of Manchester airport, a hotel to stay and leave the car in a secure environment. The run up through the grounds looked promising. The car park however looked overgrown with weeds popping through. I got as far as the reception to be told we were staying at a sister hotel (not a pleasant one). No real explanation. No prior warning. There were plenty people going about who were residing there.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night before we travelled on our holidays. We left the car for seven days which was good and got a shuttle bus to the airport and back. What I didn’t like was having to walk past residents smoking some sort of drug by the front door into the hotel not very nice. I mentioned it to the receptionist and she looked at me as much to say yes I am aware but not going to do anything. We bought evening meal and breakfast the following day which I have to say was very poor. The rooms were ok warm and comfy. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is the bar prices were ok. Won’t be staying again.
