Britannia Hotel Wolverhampton3.0 out of 5.0

Location is perfect. Very central. Breakfast was good, and the lady who was greeting for breakfast was the best staff member we encountered. Now onto the rest... The room was rather small, not an issue to us, but pictures shown are hugely deceiving. The lamp shades were filthy (pictured). The bathroom was dirty and mouldy (again pictured). There was what looked like a tampon under the bed (pictured). Overall, we were really dissatisfied and didn't really want to bring this up at the time as we saw how they brushed off someone else's complaints whilst we were waiting to check in. The no food or drinks to be brought into the hotel from elsewhere is ridiculous. I have never had that rule in a hotel ever! We ended up going out for dinner as the restaurant was only open from 6:30pm - 8:00pm, which is no time at all really! But for someone like myself who needs to take medications with food at specific times, this wasn't really useful. We had to ask when and where breakfast was. No explanation at check in until we asked after we'd been wished a pleasant stay. The hotel advertises there is free WiFi, but we were not told about this until we asked and we were then told the signal didn't reach the rooms. What use is that!? Dust and damp all in the room as well. Also, there was no tv remote, which meant we had to get up every time we wanted to change the channel on the tv. Overall, I am severely disappointed in the hotel. The only reason I have given 1 star happily is because the breakfast gave it some bonus points. Oh and you can't give none! I would never recommend someone stay here, as I'm sure there are much cleaner and nicer places to stay locally for only a slight increase in price. I would advise people to avoid like the plague!
We booked a twin room as a last minute overnight stay before an interview. The room itself was OK ish. Tidy but very tired decore, lumpy carpet and the bathroom was just terrible, musty damp and in great need of refurbishment. Dealing with the staff was a pleasure they were polite and really helpful especially when I needed to print something last minute it was not a problem. WiFi does not work in the rooms apparently but I did manage to get on it, we were on the 2nd floor at the front. The hotel has a 'smoking' floor which will be a plus for some. Very close to transport links (I could hear the trains being announced). OK for one night but I would not recommend for longer. NCP Car Park nearby was £7.60 for a 24 hour stay which I thought was OK but as with most city centres its a bit of a mare to park.
We stopped at this hotel overnight when attending a Christmas party at the molineux stadium and it was in close proximity. The corridors we had to walk down could only be described as very old fashioned, and reminded us of an old people’s home!! The room was tiny, walls paper thin but it was clean. The whole place smelt like very strong disinfectant which was very off putting but showed that the cleaning was at least done! We also were disappointed at the fact we couldn’t take food up to our room, and was made to either throw it away or eat it outside on the street which we have never found in any hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Sorry, but wouldn’t stay here again regardless of the price being low.
This is the first hotel that i have stayed in and there are smoking rooms on floor 1 so that to me was a bonus. What i never expected was that i would encounter the smell of weed and other drugs. Not just from one room but it seems like from every other room on that floor (i am sure its illegal even in a hotel) me and my partner went away for a break away from kids in the same city we live as we didn't want to be far away so a quick night away would be great. To have your room stink of weed and being up all night due to loud laughing and shouting is not a great look and as the floor was full of people who had 4 5 6 or 7 to a room was not what i expected and the staff or manager could have done more to curve this. @ 0800 the next day the staff finally got the police to kick people out -WHATS THE POINT AT 0800 when check out is 1100. Very very bad experience staff was apologetic but did they really care?? Britannia has always been a good hotel but the rooms are pokey dated and old and floor 1 is like a cafe from Amsterdam -SMOKE ALL YOU WANT - Britannia i am so unimpressed disappointing and to not be offered a refund or a free stay or summat is really disappointing so i will be spreading the word to all
It's nice hotel if you just want some where to stay for the night.It has really good location to train and bus station.The hotel and staff are very helpful.clean room and clean beds and nice and warm.
The location for the City is excellent, but be warned you will need to park at one of the nearby car parks and that will add around £10 a day to the cost. The hotel in it's day must have been very grand, unfortunately those days seem behind it. My room was fine, clean but noisy, the drone of a air conditioning unit (or something similar) could be heard all night. My shower was poor, a warm (not hot) disappointing experience I however was only there one night and never intended to or did spend much time in my room. If you want something cheap and convenient then it's OK, if you want a bit more comfort then look elsewhere Last tip, don't pay for breakfast eat over the road at Weatherspoons, safe yourself some of your hard earned cash and get more choice.
I asked for a earlier check-in but no reply to my request. The receptionist wanted to charge me £10 for 40 minutes earlier check-in, I said I would wait. The single room was small, in need of some updating, when I moved the bed I do not know when the last time the carpet had been hoovered. In the bath, black hairs, the hand rail above the bath was full of rust and the damp in the ceiling was terrible. Plenty of hot water and a bar of soap was provided. Plenty of selection for breakfast, especially the hot buffet (water heated), very friendly staff. Wi-fi was a nightmare in the bedroom and hit and miss in the lounge. I booked the room on Booking.Com at £35 (no breakfast) and then 2 days later I could have booked the room for £25 (no breakfast).
Beautiful architecture, but in desperate need of some TLC. I stayed here 1 night and it was difficult due to how dirty it was. The toilet was not cleaned and immediately put me off. Location is good. City center is walking distance, bars and pubs are across the street. The pub across the street does a nice breakfast for £3.50. Staff were nice.
I stayed here for 3 days, the room I was in was outdated, small and needed redecorating urgently, wallpaper was hanging off the wall, paint missing from woodwork - but the bed was very comfy and the room was clean - which I think is the most important.
Can't complain. Room clean and warm. Plenty of hot water for the bath. Soap and body wash provided. Had a pint in the bar and Heineken was on promotion at £1.50. For the price I have to say this is value for money especially if you don't come by car. Take cash to pay as its 50p for credit and debit cards.
