We have stayed at quite a few Britannia hotels and they do vary quite a lot and having got a great deal online for this hotel we were expecting a very average stay.The hotel was a very nice surprise right from the start with the ease of parking (£2 a night but worth every penny).
Reception was friendly and we were given room 30 which was lower ground floor so the light from the window was limited but the room was huge with an enourmous bathroom with a spa bath.The limited natural light didn,t bother us as we were out all day and the room itself was very comfortable but if you want a bright room any room number under 40 is no good for you.
Another pleasant surprise was the restaurant.Plenty of room and the sort of seating we have only had in Premier sections in other Britannia hotels.Most dinners were a roast of the day carved by chef and 2 or 3 other main dishes from the buffet.Breakfast was good and tea was brought to the table in a teapot,another touch we have only had in Premier restaurants before,usually it is those bloody awful flasks of warm brown lliquid!
Staff couldn't have been more friendly.
No night entertainment while we were there but loads of pubs around the hotel including 2 Wetherspoons.
I would recommend this place to anyone if a quiet comfortable place in a great location is what you are after but might not suit anyone after bright lights or entertainment (no bingo either thankfully)
