Stayed here for a two night break with National and can honestly say that we had no complaints. Room number 342, situated at the back of the hotel so no road noise and no noise from adjacent rooms (don't know if anyone was staying in them but believe there was as we did hear the shower). Hotel is a little...

Have stayed there a few times over the years as so handy for central Manchester. Now fed up with the experience and increased cost so will choose elsewhere. Walls incredibly thin so you can hear everything going on next door. Ludicrous queues at reception. Very small bath. Dispiriting bars and restaurants. £75 no bargain whatsoever.

Me and partner stayed here for 2 nights in February. We were given room 209, awful. The smell of smoke was unbearable, it was in the bedding, towels and left all our clothes stinking, everything had to be washed/dry cleaned. We manged to be moved for the second night to the 5th floor which was better but still not worth...

I don't enjoy criticising, but the cost of the room at this hotel far exceeded the quality received from the hotel; therefore I feel a review is required. The hotel location was okay. However, the reception staff didn't make us feel welcome; the bath was significantly dirty when we entered the room; the bed and chair were on its last...

Lovely grand hotel if a little faded, clean and fairly spacious room but have to pay for WiFi. Breakfast food is plentiful but nothing spectacular I would recommend this for a business stay or to visit Manchester. This isn't the place if you are looking for a luxury stay.

Visited recently for a evening out in Manchester, so luckily didn't spend much time in the room. Ques for check in, only one lift working at the time and room was on the fifth floor. Most of the staff I encountered spoke very broken English. Room ok in size but bed rock hard, stains on sheets and burn marks in...

Checked in and put into a stinking smoking room, reception refused to switch to a non-smoking room. Air conditioning in the room continued to whirl all night even tho it was switched off. Decor of the room was pretty disgusting. Housekeeping maid decided to knock on the door at 8.30am to see 'if i wanted housekeeping', when i asked what...

Thank you for your recent review. The Britannia Manchester is a listed building and reconstruction such as sound proofing walls are difficult as this would cause affects. That being said, The Britannia Manchester is undergoing a gradual refurbishment of rooms which due to the size and location of the Hotel can only be completed a few rooms at a time....

We arrived at Manchester Picadilly Station and a cab ride later we were there.A warm welcome and room upgrade was the perfect start to our overnight stop before a flight from Manchester airport. The restaurant was fab and we would highly recommend the sharing platter. A great find and will certainly return!

Visited for our anniversary. We would not book here again or recommend it to anyone- the bed was atrociously hard, the room was stifling hot so much so that we struggled to sleep. The curtains wouldn't close properly as they weren't big enough for the window. The decor was very dated but we didn't mind that too much, we had...
