Visited this hotel as part of a coach tour to Coronation Street. I have stayed at many of the Britannia Hotels but have never encountered one like this. Obviously nobody from Britannia reads these reviews as I encountered most of the criticisms made by previous reviewers. The rooms were still dirty and dated. The lift floor was still bubbling and was a dangerous trip hazard. Room doors were still difficult to unlock using the keys provided. The corridors were still grubby and all the brasswork was covered in fingerprints. My room had dated furniture, was extremely hot, the window did not open sufficiently and there was only one bedside table. The bathroom was disgusting. There were screws sticking out of the bath panel and door and the bottom of the door was rotten.
The food at Britannia Hotels is usually excellent but not here! The menu choices for the evening meal were tasteless beef in gravy, lasagne and so called deep fried cod. I had the beef and my partner had the cod. This had obviously come straight from the freezer and the colour was nowhere near the white you expect cod to be. She said it tasted dreadful! Accompanying this dreadful food was a choice of overcooked chips or undercooked new potatoes and a mixture of peas and dreadful cauliflower. Dessert was a choice of gateaux or cold apple pie with cream. Nothing else was offered. Breakfast was no better; a limited choice of cereals and a dreadful cooked breakfast. We waited in a queue and asked the waiter three times for bacon. He said it was on its way. It never arrived! Someone pointed out that the toast machine was only toasting one side of the bread. The answer was "I know. It is broken!". When my partner went to get her cooked breakfast the bacon had arrived but the scrambled egg (the only variety of egg offered) had gone, as had the fried bread.
My advice to anyone contemplating visiting this hotel is - DON'T
