In all honestly- what do you expect in the centre for £47?! Yes, the bath was dirty and o had to call twice for towels, and the curtains would close properly but it was £47..... pay your money and take your pick! Bed sheets appeared clean.

The Britannia is a very grand hotel with lots of character . We had a double executive room , dinner, bottle of wine and breakfast all for...

Public area and facade give a false impression. Public areas look amazing and well cared for. The rooms however are disgusting First Room a DELUXE was so small you could barely move. Looked like water had run down under the window - The previous occupant clearly had a good time going by the greasy hand print above the bed and...

This really is a case of you get what you pay for. Room was adequate and clean though tired and run down, it was merely a room to rest our heads after a heavy night. Corridors stunk of cigarette smoke. Don't expect anything fancy for £45 in the centre of Manchester

Breathtaking Victorian entrance with huge bright chandelier and opulent wide staircase . Glamorously dazzlingly, marred only by the hideously McDonald's style wall posters advertising meal-deals plastered everywhere. The atmosphere added a damp or stale odour. I walked about a little and visited the bar which had worn and delappated furniture and dirty scruffy cushions. The staff were polite and friendly.

Ended up here after walking straight out of the little northern hotel. Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Had a room with no windows but it did have a ceiling window, lovely room. Would stay again

Booked single night in a double room. I know the room was economy but have paid less and got a lot more. The foyer looks amazing with an astounding staircase and chandelier. Reception was painless and we were directed to our room. The corridor to the room had a funky musty smell, carried on into the room. The heat in...
