Stayed here as part of an organised trip to Manchester for 2 nights staying Dinner, B&B. After reading the reviews of the hotel all our party were quite apprehensive about staying here, but to be honest it surprised us. The Hotel itself is quite splendid when you walk through the doors with a fabulous staircase ascending the 5 floors. The...

Stayed here for a night and it was nothing short of perfection. Helpful staff. great huge breakfast and absolute beautiful decor. The hotel is very centered in Piccadilly close to all sites and attractions. Buses leave right across the road. I was surprised at the price because it was very affordable for the quality. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Brittania before we flew to Turkey and had two full days in Manchester. We had evening meal and breakfast which was very nice just nice for setting us up for the day, we visited Salford quays and the Northern Imperial War museum which is well worth a visit alone.

I recently stayed at this hotel as was attending a conference in Manchester City centre. £45 on booking.com, was unite excited about my stay, as the room was discounted. I had asked for a bath and a quiet room. I had just completed a 5 hour journey on the train, so was quite exhausted. But did not get a good...

I think a lot of people are being rather unfair to this hotel. It's clean, the beds are comfy, the staff are friendly and efficient, the rooms are large and it's centrally located. It's also a total bargain for a city centre location. Our room faced the main road and I didn't particularly notice the noise either. The building is...

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night whilst travelling through the north, we had decided to stay over at very last notice and finding this room for £45 on late rooms was a obvious bargain. We arrived early evening and had to hunt a nearby carpark as we hadnt been instructed on booking where the actual carpark was,...

We were given a voucher for this Hotel as a 30th Anniv present and we stayed for 1 night on 3.6.14. It was an enjoyable stay - food both at the carvery and at breakfast was poor!! Brittannia Hotels are of a particular style and you have to adopt a certain expectation. The building is of an age and era...

Imposing building,........ However tell tale signs of what was to come we're indicated by missing bulbs in the hotels name, mainly the 'T' in hotel, making an anagram of 'HOLE'... Which is exactly what this hotel is!...... £139 for room only is an absolute atrocity... Cramped, claustrophobic, dirty, tatty, Jurassic are just a few ways to describe the room and...
