We decided to stay here on a whim. It was a Saturday and fancied to get away for the day. We chose this place as Britannia hotels provide evening entertainment.
The hotel is very out dated and not clean. The room had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The was lipstick on the cups and the dregs so someone's tea was still in another cup. The was a boiled egg under the bed!!!!! And tortilla chips in between the two twin beds.
Our stay included breakfast and dinner. The evening meal was fine had lasagne and salad and was ok. Breakfast on the other hand was not good. The sausages are famous I believe as they are cheap and nasty. Sugar for your tea was in those cafe style pourers which were clogged up with dirt.
The entertainment was the only thing stopping this place getting a 1 star. Although not brilliant it was fine. We enjoyed the bingo (quite expensive though). Man playing his guitar was ok and the singer at the end of the night was very good with swing style songs.
I would not return to this hotel and this has put me off staying with Britannia again. They seem to have some good hotels and some which need bulldozing and starting again!
