                            • The location was quite central, hotel was beautiful and rooms were really clean and cosy, lobbies were nice. The staff were excellent, the bed was comfy and our meal in the Pizzeria was wonderful and delivered to our table very quickly.

                              Not the best in Manchester thats for shure and one being the house wine reduced from just over £10 to just over £6. Not worth the money and old style tv. The internet was written free and the curtains were filthy. The breakfast , was awful.

                              My rating for the hotel:

                            • Location brilliant for City Centre, near Manchester Piccadilly and mostly because for the price of £109 we excepted a better standard. The lobby is impressive, staff all friendly have booked to go back already and the rooms are perfect &.

                              Hotel is looking dated, a window would have been nice and breakfast is awful.

                            • Accessability of many sites and great value. The Britannia is a magnificent building and the lobby is gorgeous. The reception looks lovely you walk in and nice rooms all you need for a couple of days. Breakfast buffet is great, loads of hot and cold food.

                              Hotel is quite dated, the bedroom has a tiny window and the music really is that loud.

                              The decor was very old fashioned, and i felt at times like i was on the titanic, staff were very rude, all in all the room was dated and needed some major refurbishment.

                              For an executive room was very poor quality, staff were also rude we complained and the air conditioning system was broken.

                              Hotel above loud nightclub, old style TV's and bed small and mattress not comfortable. Dirty looking sofa's, we ordered pizza.

                            • Great location near several districts and nice style hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly, rooms we're fine. Very large mirrors, breakfast was fabulous.

                              At a cost of £97 this is poor value for money.
