Booked to stay here got to hotel at half 1 was told was to early and a £10 per person fee would apply there was 4 of us, I pointed out i was gunna be paying nearly £300 to stay for 3 nights and there was no way o would be paying extra as you also have to pay £8 a night for parking in a car park across the rd RIP OFF. Looking qt hotel it was worn and dirty there was a musty smell as you walk in, Staff HAVE A DONT care ATTITUDE I WOULDNT STAY THERE OR RECOMMEND TO ANY ONE IT HAS A REPUTATION AS WELL GOOGLE IT NOT PRETTY STEER CLEAR CANCELLED BOOKING STAYED ELSEWHERE ABSOLUTELY DISCUSTING PLACE
We know that €40 for a town centre apartment is low budget so done would say you get what u pay for . None the less the Britannia is Grubby, smells of damp and was almost like a huge haunted building The sheets made my skin each and the water want even hot . A b&b would have been nicer in hindsight
was very impressed with the room nice clean and well kept close to train station and shops bars etc staff were very helpfull and plenty of places to eat close by aswell as places to visit and also plenty of places to eat
THe hotel is in a great spot in the city centre.Our room was clean and a good size.The food was good .The staff were very pleasant.For the price we payed for the coach trip this hotel must give really good value to its customers.The bad revues are off putting.Dont be put off.
Unbelievable, dirty , smelly, tiny room looking out onto a beautiful red brick wall, a view to remember, stained sheets and pillow, fur balls under the bed, We were planning on a romantic break but let's say the bugs in the bed sort of spoiled the occasion, The toilet was fabulous really spectacular a ing to pump the flush... we had booked 2 nights but left the next morning via a chemist to get painkillers for bad backs from concrete mattresses, and anti histamine for the bite... this has to rate as the worst hotel I have ever stayed in,
My son went on bus tour which stayed at this Hotel...if he could rate it in the minus he would give it minus 10. It was horrible, smell in the bedrooms, the food was no better. One night they came down for dinner but none left (were not late..just not enough of it) The people who did get some said they were lucky they had missed it. Terrible place to stay. Whole of tour were of same opinion....total waste of money.
Booked a room for a Saturday night as The Bride & I wanted to stay over after attending a concert at the nearby Slade Rooms. Had to wait a bit at reception before being acknowledged by the staff, a young lady eventually booked us in with minimal communication and no personality. Having been given no directions to our room we made our way up the stairs, through the labyrinth corridors to find it ourselves on the second floor. The first impression on entering the room was the smell, made up of something unpleasant such as damp or drains and cigarette smoke. Luckily the small window opened, and was left opened. The carpet was probably nice when fitted in Queen Victoria's reign but is now threadbare, stained and long overdue a replacement. The standard of cleanliness in the room was however satisfactory, and the bathroom was a good size and also clean. The TV remote turned the set on, adjusted the volume and would flick through the channels but the guide or red button services wouldn't work. We dropped our bags and headed off out. After a good time drinking and enjoying live music we came back for bed. The smell had dissipated somewhat with the window being left opened, but was still noticeable. The bed itself was comfy enough but there was only one thin old pillow each. The worst part of the night was being constantly woken by drunken guests in the corridor talking loudly for ages, doors banging, and the very loud noisy floorboards that made me think King Kong was on a sponsored walk in the building. After a night of broken sleep a nice lazy Sunday morning lie-in would have been welcomed, but that was not possible as the maids were shouting to each other in the corridor before firing up the super loud vacuum cleaner. We then got ready and vacated asap! If you want a cheap room for the night in a down at heel place after a night on the booze this hits the spot, but if you want a bit of comfort, peace & quiet and human staff to interact with I suggest the Premier Inn just the other side of the train station.
I stopped at this hotel overnight on Friday the 21st July on a bed only basis. It had been arranged for several of us to meet up at this hotel and spend the night socializing. The hotel is in a very convenient location right in the city centre and a short walk from the railway station. The twin room that I stayed in was reasonably clean and tidy, however that and the location are the positives that I could find. On arrival I was given my key card, which on arrival at my room didn't work, so I returned to the desk to be told that I would have o present the card in the slot and then I should jiggle the door handle until the card work. I had to do this for about 5 minutes every time that I used the key card. I had to carry out a similar action every time that I needed to flush the toilet. I didn't bother reporting this to the staff, based on my experience of the door key card. This hotel is dark and shabby and in dire need of a complete overhaul (including the staff). On a slightly humorous note the hotel has the slowest lifts that I have ever experienced, so if you like spending time in lifts then this may well be the one for you. Other than that I suggest that this is one hotel to avoid at all costs.
The location is awful, drunks all outside the hotel, It certainly didn't feel safe to walk around the area. the hotel looked grim from the outside but this was nothing compared to the inside. we were on a skills mystery tour coach trip. we were given room 241 and 244 241 was awful the carpet was filthy and the floor was so uneven you were constantly twisting your ankle all the time it felt like you could fall through to the room below. the kettle was absolutely filthy with stains all over it and the base was filthy. the sheets didn't even fit the mattress was filthy. (there was no way I could sleep in it). there was human hair in the bathroom all on the window ledge and in the bath. the bedside cabinet was broken and just left there. numerous dirty stains on the doors and walls and the windows were filthy. my friends room was much the same . the toilet still had excrement in it (disgusting, what a welcome), the room smelt so badly of smoke that you felt like you were choking. we spoke to a staff member who said "well it is an old building and the hotel is full so we cant swap you" she then proceeded to open the sash window but it kept dropping shut again. she said "i will get a stick and prop it open" . Surely being old is no excuse for the state of this place. I don't know how brittania dare advertise this hotel. As for a coach company bringing paying customers to this place I personally think it is appalling. We booked a train home and checked out after being in there for about one and a half hours!!! please do not stay here its a disgrace.
never in my whole time have I feel dirtier after a shower. The bathroom was dirty tiles were grimmy shower curtain full of marks rust on tissues dispenser shower pole and towel rails. bath was grey. The. Rom not all lights worked marked carpets holes in woodwork and around door frame. constant smell of weed in and around room and corridor . food very cheaply sourced. poor quality even down to coffee. all beds at an angle. had we not been on an organised excursion and it was only for one night I would have left.To be honest I want to get home get showered and wash my clothes. never would i recommend this hotel to anyone.
