Me and my boyfriend stayed here last weekend, mainly to see the Christmas markets without worrying about how to get home. This was the cheapest hotel we could find throughout Manchester and this hotel worked out at £180 for one night. When we arrived we was told breakfast was not included in the price, so had to pay extra for...

Dated rooms. Filthy and stained carpets, broken furniture in room. Noisy heating. Leak in bathroom. Shaver point not working. Bathroom towels and walls covered in other peoples' hairs. Disgusting breakfast. Had to buy my own wipes to clean the room as obvious staff didn't care about cleanliness Felt like I was staying in the hotel from The Shining and just...

We stayed last night for one night to visit the Christmas market. We had a turret room at the top which was perfect for what we wanted. Room was clean and comfortable, perfect value for the £48 we paid online. The hotel is perfectly located for the centre for shopping & Christmas market. Would definitely return in the future, good...

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...
