Local from Liverpool

The grand old man of Manchester's hotel scene, a stay at the Britannia is one spent amid history. The building itself is a gem, a sprawling 19th century structure with a location that's hard to beat. There's a sweeping staircase in the lobby with a chandelier suspended above, making things very dramatic indeed. Whilst it may not be the most luxurious or coolest hotel in town, it's still a solid option. Rooms are kept simple yet clean whilst there's a bar and restaurant too. There's free wifi throughout and even a pizzeria on the ground floor.

Just like when buying a house, location location location is one of the main things to look for when booking a hotel and in a city the size the size of Manchester it would be easy to find yourself far from all the action. I know, it happened to me once but never again I promised myself!

You'd be hard pressed to find a better location than The Britannia. You're seconds away from the fabulous and flamboyant canal street, a stones throw away from an array of tantalising foods from all cultures, not to mention the fantastic 'China Town' where you won't have to compromise on quality if you're on a budget. Not to mention the free bus that will take you to further pastures should you tire of the surrounding area (trust me, you will not)

The hotel itself is a marvel in architecture. Window after window, standing proudly against the hustle and bustle of city life. The inside does not disappoint. From the grand, sweeping balcony bedecked stairway (where one would not be blamed for pretending to be Scarlet O'hara) to the glistering chandeliers and lush carpets.

They have rooms for everyone, from the basic to the deluxe and there is always an offer to be found to get a cheaper nights stay.

Should you not feel like leaving, the hotel boasts two bars which serve food all day. Not to forget the carvery and pizzeria. This hotel has something for everyone, so why not give it a try?

This was clearly once an opulent and prized hotel, that now lives on its past glory. The inside of the hotel is still a sight to behold, with an amazing winding staircase that goes up 8 or so floors. The rooms are nothing all too impressive, but the rates reflect it, and the location is prime for exploring Manchester, with city center and Chinatown a couple of block away, as well as a short stroll to the train station.
