Stayed there last night for one night with my husband. Every floor board in the room creaked. Even if breathed heavy the bed would shake/creak despite the head board just lean against the bed/wall. The heat of the room was awful, AC didn't work. Went down to reception several times to complain and no one on the main desk. To...

Stayed at The Britannia Manchester for 5 nights whilst working nearby. There's a lot of regeneration work going on near to the hotel, so on approach, it does look a bit ramshackle, however, on entering The Britannia, the vast reception area and grand staircase give you an idea of the grandeur that once was. I was nervous as I waited...

The room was basic, nothing wrong inside and we were only there for the night so can't complain about the decor I'd have given a higher rating if we hadn't been put on the smoking side of the hotel without being asked (bearing in mind none of us smoke and had nothing about smoking rooms on the booking - didn't...

Welcome to Hotel Brittania, Manchester. Reception appears to have two queues. One for check in and one for complaints. The latter was always full. The staff were full of christmas spirit and joy. Not. The double room had a bed big enough for one of my bum cheeks. The matress had more burst springs than a car garage. Cobwebs on...

We had arranged a lunch time check in, so we arrived at 13.00 hours and we were given a room on the second floor, when we entered the room it really smelled of cigarette smoke. We turned around and went reception to complain. Our views were heard and another room was going to be made available but unfortunately not until...

It was advertised double bed but it was nowhere near the size. It was a three quarter bed. Ok for one night but wouldn't stay any longer. Felt a little uneasy at night time as a lot of homeless people hang around outside hotel, hence hotel had all night security staff stopping homeless trying to get in (which we witnessed)....

Stopped overnight at this hotel on a recent visit to Manchester. On arrival you can see that back in the say this would have been quite a grand hotel, although now the decor looks a little tired. We waited about 15 minutes to check in at about 3pm. I got very confused as I was asked if I wanted a...
