We checked in at 3.15pm on new years eve for one night, two adults and two children, all looking forward to a short spa break, the children were particularly keen to have a swim, only to be told that the Spa facilities closed at 4pm and wouldn't open again until Jan 2nd. We decided to make the most of things...

Visited recently for a night before our flight, parked car here for two weeks, pleased with the service. The decor and carpets may not be the smartest but for the price you pay you dont expect 5*. The spa is good and the staff there are lovely. The pizzas are delicious from the restaurant and are half price early evening....

We stayed here for one night, it is a big rambling place that has seen much better times. Carpets are worn and also dirty not just with ingrained muck but also surface dirt that simply need a hoover. The wi-fi worked great on the corridor but not at all in the rooms. We had an excellent pizza in the pizza...

Stayed at the Britannia as a close location to Manchester Airport. Hotel is rather okay, some parts a bit tired and needing TLC. Duvet was in a sorry state. Black marks and stains not very welcoming. Room only has lamps however no actual up lights, a bit odd. Room service was exceptional.

I stayed at this hotel for work in the area. This is the oddest hotel I have possibly stayed in. The room was clean and the check in staff were friendly enough.The rooms are an odd combination of 1920 furniture and 80's glamour. I had a four poster bed in my room which was wonky on one post and a...

Will not be staying here again - granted it was a cheaper option compared to other hotels in the area but basically this hotel needs a massive overall in all areas! Fine example of cheap English accommodation at its best; TV in the room was so small you couldn't see if from the bed, Slot machines in the bar, peeling...

Stayed overnight before a long haul flight. Very convenient for airport and reasonable (£6) single transfer. Car park is massive but hotel is poorly signposted from main road. Very easy to go past. Only criticism of room is the very small TV. Set dinner is adequate but lacking choice. Buffet breakfast is plentiful but dishes can be luke warm. Tables...
