No seriously, what else do you expect with these prices? I've read a few valid very bad reviews about security issues and noise but apart from that, my experience was 4 star. We paid £32 (+booking) for a double room last minute. THIRTY TWO POUNDS - in very central manchester. What a bargain. Any staff member I met was lovely.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Britannia Manchester Hotel in August 2016 for a short city break. Booked through a well-known discount website, we paid a modest amount for BB&E for our first night and BB for our second. Both nights included a bottle of house wine - not exactly the best vintage, but at just a little over... More

Where to begin, no the friendliest on reception. Very old decor. Needs a good refurb in the corridors and around reception. Looks scruffy. Big chandelier with bulbs out that need changing. In the room the wardrobe door was broken. The table and chair wasn't sturdy. No window in a smoking room, and no fan or extraction. A fan on the... More

We have been going to the Britannia regularly now for several years, and we are very fond of it. It is a large, even very large, Victorian building right in the centre of the city, with chandeliers and a magnificent wrought iron staircase - that's the grandeur. Rooms are very comfortable, some very spacious, with good beds that guarantee a... More

Well what can I say. Booked this as it was half price what a mistake! Upon arriving in my room i found what I can only describe as human faeces in my toilet. A little worrying as no paper with it.
