Newest Review: ... staircase and lobby. Apparently, the building is a former warehouse and as such comprises a large central staircase, with a number of floors of guestrooms arranged around it. The décor is relatively sumptuous. In the large lobby area, a number of leather sofas are arranged around tables and chairs, and the walls are decorated in rich colours. The staircase is covered in a deep pile, red ... more

Those of you who regularly watch ITV1 may recall the trailers advertising the return of Bet Lynch to Coronation Street some years ago. In the trailers, we saw Bet garbed in full leopard skin splendour, descending a rather ornate looking staircase. At first glance, the location looked not unlike a stately home - but I knew better. As soon as I saw the trailer, I recognised the staircase immediately. It was actually the main staircase for the Britannia Hotel, which is situated in Central Manchester. A few years ago, I chaired a recognition event in Manchester for a project team. As a number of members of the team had travelled a long way, I also arranged ... Read the complete review

The most prominent and beautiful building on Portland Street. With a sweeping movie like stair case, Chaise longes scattered on each landing area, crystal chandeliers inside a Grade II listed builsing, 363 bedrooms, conference facilities, a night club, bars and restaurants, cheap advance room rates, what better place to use as a base to explore Manchester from? Location The Britannia, Manchester, is located on Portland Street. It is situation around 5 minutes leisurely walk from Piccadilly Gardens / Station, with excellent Tram, Train and Bus Links. The National Express station is next door, and it is very easy to find if you go to Manchester by ... Read the complete review

I stayed here in the lead up to Christmas 08 and the hotel is simply ok. Its not the worst hotel I have stayed in in Manchester but it certainly is no where near the best. I had heard good reviews so I was dissapointed when I arrived to find the rooms were slightly old and tired. Could do with a lick of paint and some renovations. The bathroom was also not entirely clean , however when i pointed this out to reception they moved me. What lets down the hotel is the service and staff. Leave plenty of time for the check in and check out. I spoke to a friend on my return who also experienced similar issues. The positive of the hotel is the ... Read the complete review

To sum up what happened upon my arrival, it began going wrong when the doorman put his arm across my throat as I went to check in. "Are you a guest?" he asked. A bit rude and physical I thought but I let it pass without comment. Then at reception I spoke to two people about my reservation who could barely speak English. Worst of all was the duty manager who refused to speak to us, as he had to fix a printing machine first. We watched in stunned silence from the other side of the counter. Somebody was complaining and getting nowhere so I decided to give up waiting as we'd been left unattended for quite a while (i.e. 20 ... Read the complete review

The Britannia Hotel is quite easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We travelled as a party of 14 requiring 7 rooms each booked in 7 names. We arrived at different times and the receptionist couldn't be bothered to make sure we were allocated the right rooms and told us to sign for any of them. Once in the rooms, it was like being at Granny's house. The standard of cleanliness and decor was exceedingly poor. Our twin rooms had two single beds which were as wide as bunk beds in caravans. The y were not even standard singles. They were covered by what looked like a rough car blanket. The bedding did not match and the beds didn't even have a ... Read the complete review
