    we thought the hotel was grubby, shabby and dated.

  • Couple

    the stay was good for what we needed , the bathroom smelled slightly of smoke , room a little dated.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    friendly staff at reception, the dining room and the bar. The room was clean and tidy. Extra towels were provided without any difficulty.

    On a very cold day, the heating was switched off in the room and it took quite a while for it to warm up. There was no heating in the corridor outside, which did not create a good impression. The full breakfast was overpriced, compared to the reasonable carvery charges.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The food was good as were the staff in the restaurant. Good value for money. The rooms used for the salsa event were also excellent - good floors and sizes.

    The reception staff were not very friendly or efficient. I expect to pay my hotel bill after my stay, not before.

  • Couple

    The breakfast was good although the coffee was instant not real coffee or even nescafe!

    It was very tired, needed lots of updating, not very clean and not very modern. Also there was an extra charge to residents to use the pool or gym facilities.

    not alot - plenty for breakfast

    cobwebsi n room - cheap breakfast sausages - housekeeping tried to clean our room at 9am. -

    Friendly welcome and location very near to the m6

    There was nothing to really "not like" It was good value for money. On principle I like the quoted cost to be what I pay to the hotel reception. Please make your website clearly state any "add-ons" on arrival.....it was only £2-00 but there's no need to hide it in the terms and conditions.

    The locality suited my needs for one night

    On arrival there was no record of our booking and we had to wait for over 20 minutes for a room. The rooms we had requested (1 twin and 1 double) were unavailable, being given 2 twins. The rooms were in a bad state of repair and cleanliness was poor; one room was so bad we had to be moved. The pool facilities were unavailable. The restaurant was booked out to a party and guests had to find an alternative for dinner. Breakfast was advertised as a 7am start which suited our needs as we had to leave early, but did not open until 7.30 giving us insufficient time.

    Location & Breakfast.

    Having to pay for the leisure fascilities which were not the cleanest.

  • Couple
    4.6

    Room very dated,the bed itself was extreamly uncomfortable.Would not Recommend this hotel to anyone,did not meet our expectations.

  • Single
    7.8

    Staff at the britannia very helpful & polite the food was good and very good prices on meals ,Buffer breakfast form 7 am .Lots of shops and take aways resturants supermarkets close to hotel.

    Only one gripe with this hotel was when resturant opened for breakfast in morning we had to wait 10 to 15 min for food to be brought out which made me late every thing should of been ready at 7 am when the doors open .apart from that all good.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    The staff were helpful and friendly.

    The ambiguous information we got. The fact that we couldn't pay by Debit Card without a £2 charge. That is ridiculous.

  • Single
    8.2

    Ideally situated for motorway network. Professional and friendly staff. Competitively priced - very good value.

    Cleanliness in room behind beds (which was were socket was) - looked like hadn't been cleaned in months

  • Group of friends
    3.2

    Smell of damp and unclean rooms. New beds urgently needed!!

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Convienant location for our business trip.

    There was a very limited choice for food and it was very poor quality. It was all left on hotplates, which looked like it had been there for a while. When we first arrived at the restaurant there was nobody to greet us. The whole hotel was very tired and dated looking both inside and out.
