We stayed overnight, two adults, and we had payed extra for an upgraded room.
Firstly let me say, we only saw our room and the bar/restaurant, but I think this hotel could do with a full refurb.Britannia hotels seem to have just bought it over, changed a few name plaques from travel lodge and let it roll on.
We stayed in room 19 in the old mill part of the hotel, if we hadnt had THE most uncomfy matress in all of our world travels it would have been an adequate stay.
The staff were lovely, helpful people, the bar restaurant was good, nice cold draught beer and decent bar food at reasonable prices.
Buy some new mattresses,if people get a good night's sleep they can forgive most little problems, it honestly was the worst mattress I have ever used, my wife and I kind of rolled into the middle of the bed without having to move!!!
God help anyone who isnt talking to their partner when they stay here, they wont have a choice,getting up close is what this bevelled mattress does to you.
Seriously though, good staff, good food, including a buffet breakfast, let down by sub standard accommodation.

My boyfriend and I stayed here as part of a groupon deal. We got a 2 course meal, a bottle of wine and a standard double room for £89 pounds so couldn't complain. On entering the room it was really cold and had a strange smell. It was very basic and small. I noticed what looked like pubic hairs on the towel in the bathroom as well as dirty walls. The food was average, nothing to boast about. The bed was really uncomfortable neither my boyfriend or I got a decent sleep. I will definitely not be returning and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Outdated rooms, bathroom not clean, toilet flush didn't work properly, bath badly damaged, bed very uncomfortable after walking round a beautiful city all day, this was our 2nd visit as had to complain the 1st time has no hot water, this was a free stay on the back of the original complaint after being assured by the operations manager that there would have been a re fit when we returned-and there hadn't been and found the operations manager had been fired. Think senior operations need to visit and stay and implement changes

A friend and I booked a twin room for the rugby at Murrayfield, on way to room for first time hotel looking well used, on entering room it smelt very strongly of cigarette smoke and one of the offending fag ends was susequently found in the sink. Tidy.
Mattresses didnt fit or match bed bases, scuffs and dents present on most walls and some doors, bathroom hardware in need of repair etc.
£150.00 for b&b is too expensive for this establishment, half that amount would be plenty.
The guy on reception friendly and efficient and the barmaid was also very helpful, friendly nothing was too much trouble. They both deserve to work in a better hotel tbh.
The Brittania would be perfectly described as student halls of residence, very basic rooms in very basic condition.
PS breakfast surprisingly good.

We picked this for the location as we are going to Murrayfield. Firstly tried to give us a standard despite paying £200 for the executive. The place is dirty, dated and dire. Expected to pay more because of the six nations but I have been in nicer travel lodges which would have cost £30. I will not go to a Britannia again after this experience.

Would never stay there again. Room was cold. One of the windows panel in the bathroom was off so we had to put a towel over the window so no one could see in. No hot water in the morning for a shower so it was either u did not shower or you had a freezing cold shower. Walls had dents n.bashes.on them
