“clean off the mould”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

When you enter the reception area it looks OK, even entering the bedroom it looks reasonable at first sight. Certainly the bedroom looked clean enough and fresh.
It is only when you enter the bathroom that you see the big problem.
There is a lot of disgusting mould between the tiles and the once clear silicone seal around the taps is now completely black with mould,fungus and who knows what else.
It was obvious that the tiled floor had not been cleaned or even brushed for some time.
We were only staying one night with a coach break so I didnt complain.after all the hotel management must be aware of the rooms condition.

I now invite Senior Directors from Brittania to stay here and enjoy room 204.
It is incredible that they expect guests to put up with this nonsense.

Room Tip: hard to tell if the other rooms are any better you could try telling the reception that you are on...

Stayed here on Saturday 15th March along with 4 friends travelling with National Holidays. This is the WORST hotel we have ever stayed in! The rooms were absolutely filthy with months full of dust and grime on the carpet and under the beds. The chairs were not fit to sit on they were so dirty. The covers were ripped and foam stuffing spilling out. The net curtains were grey and shabby. After several complaints to reception and the manager the rooms were re cleaned but still left a lot to be desired. The only plus point was that the bed linen was clean otherwise we would have been over the road to The Premier Inn!
The restaurant did not not fare much better either with dirty cutlery and half opened portions of jam returned put back amongst the new ones. Yuk! Needless to say we didn't eat much.
Seriously National Holidays you need to rethink before sending paying customers to this hotel!

stayed on a friday, drove up from south so was very tired. checked in.
room was a bit unclean if I am honest, nothing disgusting but just felt a bit unclean and rough round the edges... had got at a bargain price.. lovely big room though.. However, i was on ground floor and near the stairs and there was a coach load of people staying and a lot of them spent evening in bar.. all well and good but doors from corridor to bar were wedged open so very noisy.. and when doors were eventualy shut they were not doors that closed quietly. so every ten minutes till gone 1am there was a loud bang as someone walked through them. so a bit of a noisy so sleep quality awful.. that aside was ok. would stay again but only at discounted rate.

Room Tip: would request not going on ground floor

Well to start on the positive note the Receptionist was very friendly and that's where it ends everything else was terrible. On arrival at the Britannia the car park and surrounding area is really untidy, on getting to the main doors I thought they had smoked glass but they were just so dirty! The Receptionist was very pleasant and helpful and told us where our room was, once we got into the room I nearly cried with horror the bed was untidy and the room absolutely filthy, you wouldn't have kept a dog there, the curtains were falling off the rail the surfaces were very dirty and the top of the radiator didn't look like it had been wiped in months!!! The bathroom wasn't much better, the tiles were full of mould and the shower rail was so rusty and just generally awful, and the TV is something from the Antiques Roadshow. we went back down to Reception and told the lady that we couldn't stay as the room as it was so dirty and she was very apologetic and gave us a full refund there and then, we then went across the road to the Premier Inn and was totally satisfied with the room as per usual, so if you are thinking of booking the Brittania Hotel, Standish.....DON'T DO IT!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't book a room here its terrible

We stayed in this excuse for a hotel on Wednesday and can honestly say if I had booked 2 nights I would have been across the road to Premier inn.On arrival there was no welcome just have you booked im sure Basil Fawlty did have a daughter after all.Our room was a smoking one even though we don't smoke thanks for the offer ....The room wasn't clean mould on floor at bathroom door water not just hot but scolding thankfully we don't have young children.We decided to see if restaurant was open huh nobody around or at bar and nobody to ask so we decided to go across road to Brewers fare .The television in room only worked in black and white and it was about 10 yrs old on tv stand on floor must be we get spoiled by flat screens in hotels we normally use.On departure we weren't asked if we enjoyed our stay im sure they don't get many returning visitors I know I will NEVER use this hotel group again
