Traveled to Manchester and stayed in the Britannia hotel on Portland street. The grand entrance hall and sweeping staircase are magnificent and a testament to Victorian architecture design but unfortunately this hotel has been left to go in to a sorry state of decline and is in need of renovation. However the staff were very friendly and helpful but would...

What a fantastic location for exploring Manchester. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating and the rooms clean and tidy. The bed especially was very comfortable but this hotel was very noisy, l thought as one point the window was open but it wasn't. The only big let down was the food, both the evening meal and breakfast were...

My wife & I visit Manchester every 6 months for hospital check up! We leave the car at home and travel in by public transport, the bus stop just at the side of the hotel on Chorlton Str.so very convenient. Over the years we have staid at this hotel several times, and it has improved over this time. The reception...

So you're driving home after a necessary but ultimately depressing trip when you decide to make an unscheduled and spontaneous detour to Manchester. We felt somehow drawn to Manchester, I can only assume, by the collective supernatural power of the Mancunian Hipster. Unable to resist the a fore mentioned pull of the beard, my wife jumped on-line and set about...

But could do with a little love. The hotel is in a great, central location. it has an imposing entrance and a stunning lobby, the staff were helpful. Admittedly this was a last minute booking and at a cheap price but the room wasn't too inspiring, it was small, and cold, the 10 minutes free wifi allowed me to JUST...

Stayed on 15th March and booked the room with no window for £37. Arrived and room was bigger than expected and had a window. Yes this place is dated and you do wonder what it would have been in its heyday. Shower was powerful and had instant hot water. Tea/coffee and kettle. Only downside was the radiator was on full...

We have stayed here before and that is why we booked it again - good price for 2 nights and very central. We were attending a party that was literally 200 yards from the hotel - lucky coincidence - and for the price we couldn't fault it. It isn't a top of the range 5* hotel but it is what...
