Much needed bed

Arrived at around 2.30 am after a super holiday. Just needed a comfy bed to crash out for a few hours before my onward journey. I rang for the shuttle from the airport and was given clear instructions by a very nice lady and delivered to the hotel within 15 minutes. Checked in in a few minutes and hit the bed. It was clean and comfy. The downside - no toiletries in the bathroom and I could not get the TV working to watch the news with my morning coffee. The young man on morning reception was extremely helpful and pleasant. Woudl I stay there again - yes - no frills but did the job.

Appaled

I was appalled with my stay. I had to change my room twice as the room was very unhygienic and not clean at all. I was not happy with my stay and I will certainly not be booking this hotel ever again.

All that we wanted

Needed a low cost hotel for a night for family purposes.Also added extra night when it was needed and an extra room with no price hikes - so good on you Britannia. Easy to book,friendly, well received, room good and breakfast great. Evening meal not too good. Should concentrate on main course and forget about the rest. Good place to stay, but the group would be better having a Phone number that does not charge for use - tacky ploy to get a bit more.

quick stopover

Booked a quick stopover as flying out early am. Arrived to find no parking spaces available. Advised to drive to sister hotel to park however on arrival no spaces there either! Had to drive back and ' abandon' car 1.5 hrs later. Not the start we wanted to our holiday after a 4hour drive. Also it was not explicit that transfers were extra at time of booking. £6 per adult. Fib Nally requested an early morning call from reception but this did not happen.

Excellent airport hotel

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel, just an inexpensive bed before an early flight, but the hotel was clean, had a decent bar/restaurant, friendly staff and quiet, well equipped rooms. The airport shuttle in the morning was on time and convenient.

Good location for airport

It is close to manchester airport and the shuttle service to and from worked well although the shuttles only run at set times. Hotel could do with a bit of updating but served our purpose of a stop over before our flight.

Cheap but comfortable

Our experience at this hotel was surprisingly good considering how cheap our stay was. Ok, it is not 5 star quality but it certainly was not 5 star price.

Fine

The hotel was nicely situated for what I wanted, the room was fine but a little tired looking. The bed very comfortable. But in the age of wifi no signal in the room. Had to use the draughty lounge The meals were good and straight forward and the staff were professional enough. The person the pat cleans the room vould do with a little more pride in their job. The tv remote did nit work, and it I was a very very old TV set with a video tape player. It worked, but a bit if a puzzler to switch ion. But for a comfy bed for the night it was fine,

The staff was less than enthusiastic, Room was tidy but could have used a deep cleaning. There was hair in the shower.
