    Location to meeting

    The hotel was aged and in need of updating and repair.

  • Group of friends

    More television channels in rooms would be good idea not just a few of the freeview channels. Breakfast too expensive cheaper to go elsewhere

    Second time even better than the first - if you come by coach is the place to be but the train station isn't far either. Wi-fi also works perfectly. Enough said

  • Couple

    The Hotel got the the good location in Manchester city and very easy to move around.

    The Hotel got the goot architectural look but the only problems its rooms especially the fifth floor they are very poor, they need proper refurbrishment from the carpet to interior decoration and the tele are old model. Also the shower facilities there very poor, because they are fixed not move around, so its very difficults when you get shower to get on the other parties of your body.

    Location

    Our room was in a terrible state, wallpaper ripped in several places. Paintwork and wallsvery grubby. Carpet worn and filthy. Tiles in bathroom and grouting need good scrubbing.not enough lighting in the room especially as no window.

    Decor Looks a bit shabby:-(

    What a gem of a place! I have Passed the Britannia on countless occasions and have never really considered staying there (thinking it would far too expensive). As I was going to a gig at the men Arena, this necessitated an overnight stay and as my usual hotel,close to the men was full, I looked on-line at The Britannia. I was amazed at the bargain price, and and on arrival at the hotel was delighted with the standards of comfort and cleanliness,the style and decor, and of course, the friendliness and courtesy of all the staff. Breakfast in Jenny's restaurant from the self-service bar was excellent, with you being able to opt for a healthy version to a calorie busting Full English (a perfect start to set you up for "doing the city"). My expectations of the hotel were more than met on my visit. The next time I stay in Manchester, the Britannia will be my First port of call ........not an "I'll give it a try" venue!

    I could not find anything wrong at all.

    We were given a beautiful room with a wonderful jacuzzi bath. We have stayed several times at Brittania and always have a wonderful experiance. No problems with anything. Thank you

    Location, 5 min walk to China Town, 10 min walk to Shopping Centre, 10 min walk to Train Station, no other hotel has better location than this.

    I stayed in this hotel 15 years ago, it was one of the most lux hotels in Manchester. Now it is just a hotel in an old building, room and facilities are quite old. A major refurbishment is needed to be able to compete with hotel booming environment in the city.

    The foyer of the hotel is grand and beautiful, staff are friendly.

    We payed for an executive room however it was cramped, underwhelming and squashed on the very top floor.

  • Single

    The staff...location...cleaness

    What i only didn't like is the BED...which was not compfortable and was hypermobile...
