The staff were helpful and friendly. However, the hotel itself is scruffy, badly maintained and far below the experience that my daughter and I were expecting.

Great location for its close proximity to Manchester airport. Bar and food, plus its staff were brilliant. The only let down was our basin was missing the plug which i made the staff aware of at 5.30 and was told one would be brought to our room. I asked again at 9pm and it never arrived! Overall room was clean, had all we needed and a decent size. Bed was comfy too.

It was good enough, except I requested a Double Room (one double bed) and ended up in a Triple Room (three single beds)

Terrible and disgusting. Avoid at any cost

Don't be fooled by the photos published by the hotel, or the outside appearance of the building. This place is an absolute garbage from the inside. Carpet badly stained and dirty, furniture is from WW2 times, rooms are dirty and very small. Avoid at any cost and stay in a hotel that is clean because this one is rubbish.....

A budget hotel. Quite adequate.

Pros: A 1960's budget hotel at a reasonable price. Quite adequate to stay in. The TV in the room could be updated. Wifi - Virgin - not working
Cons: For the budget price quite OK.
Location: Very little by way of scenery etc in Northenden area to do. The surrounding area is rather run down and nothing much to see. I came up on business.
A budget hotel. Staff very accessible and polite. I observed some rude airline travellers shouting at the hotel front desk receptionist. The hotel management should put up a zero tolerance sign, to protect the staff. Inspite of this aggressive behaviour, I was standing in the queue, and observed how calm and polite the male receptionist was. There was an Indian receptionist, ? name of Jeeru very polite and courteous to all + very helpful with directions for visitors, she deserves praise. The Hotel is a 1960's hotel, a bit dated, but comfortable and clean. Rooms clean, bathroom clean. Restaurant OK. No saucers for the coffee cups. Only one girl serving at breakfast. She has no change in the till to return the change for the paid bill ! I have stayed in many more expensive hotels but they have better decor etc which comes at a price. Happy to return to the Britannia Manchester Airport again. Car parking needs improvement for hotel residents like me, the level one car park entrance was blocked, with cones, but I could see from my room window looking down on it, was empty.
