Christmas in Manchester

A travel blog entry by travlondon


This was my second trip to Manchester, now one of my favorite cities in the world. I was elated to discover that I could stop in Manchester at no additional charge after my trip to Windermere, which is further north. In fact, National Rail in the UK allows you to take up to 30 days to return from the furthest point in your destination. So …

Houston, we have touchdown.

... on them if we went this route. Nic was weary about managing the streets by herself, but this would be a good icebreaker for her. We have to break that comfort bubble sometime soon.

I relaxed on the sofa in the bar and splashed down the rest of my drink as I waited for her to return successfully from her mission. Dancing queen amongst ever other flagrant gay 80’s-90’s song blared out of the jukebox as I made myself comfortable. The beer settled ...

I'm. So. Tired.

... outcomes come to mind) Every day i caffeinate myself enough that I don't get tired until about 5 or 6pm. Then I take a nap and usually wake up by 1 and can't fall back asleep. Dan has tried to keep me up and not let me nap but eventually there's only so much he can do before I'm asleep. I'm so exhausted all the time that I can barely make a decision about anything. It's like the decision making portion of my brain ...

UK livin'!

... ideas of what I would do next when someone bumped into me. Instant panic. I turn. There's Dan smiling from ear to ear. The brat watched me walk around all confused to see what I would do. He got a smack for that. Well anyhow now we are in Manchester. We have walked around. Grabbed a pint. Went to the football (soccer) museum. Went in the Manchester cathedral. And now I'm exhausted. And it's not even 1! Ok now to be social again! I'll post more later! But I'm alive! So no ...

The Tour kicks off....somewhere.....

... Lane Farm the following day. I rode up just to look around and then ride back to town. Barriers we going up all along the route. There was bunting and yellow bicycles galore and every pub seemed to have a "jovial" crowd getting ready for the next day. Although there were people along the route it took quite a bit of imagination to visulaize the projected huge crowds for the following ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Britannia Manchester Hotel

    Have to agree, what a dump!


    This hotel has terrible written all over it (or it should have). I wouldnt have minded if the staff were nice, but they were just as terrible! The room was pokey, smelled and overlooked the back of the hotel which was noisy. The bedlinen was stained, the bathroom was just big enough to turn around in and they should have paid for me to stay there. I wouldnt waste your money trying to prove any of these reviews wrong. You also will be sadly dissapointed!

    Where to start.. When arriving I thought the hotel looked great, nice bars and food facilities etc..

    Don't book indicating your credt card number!!!!


    I had made a booking at the hotel earlier this year, indicating my card number - and only afterwards read the bad reviews on this site. So I immediately cancelled the booking and even reiceived a confirmation e-mail by the hotel that the booking was cancelled. Well.... went to Manchester for 3 days, stayed at some other really great hotel, and on my return home found .... an invoice for a no-show at the Britannia!!!!!! I e-mailed them, attaching their confirmation of cancellation - we are all humans, mistakes can happen ... no reply. So I sent one more mail 2 days later, in a slightly harsher tone .... no reply. And there was no reply from them even after my 10th mail. In the meantime I was charged by the credit card institute and I had to explain the whole thing to them that I wouldn't pay, sent them all the correspondence and they did agree that I was right already at first sight. But the Britannia never found it worth to send me a short 'sorry' ....So please be careful!!!

    It's a pleasure to write this review...


    Words cannot express how terrible this hotel is. DISGUSTING. I do not know where to start. Reading what I am about to write may sound funny, but trust me, there is nothing funny about The Britannia Hotel.

    This Hotel Should Be Inspected By The Tourist Board


    this is a formal complaint sent to the manchester local

    Good stuff and really bad stuff!


    The rooms were quite large but very shabby. Window was filthy and net

    Possibly the worst hotel in Europe if not the world!!!


    The Britannia "Hotel" (and I use the term loosley) is a the worst accomodation I have ever stayed in. Our room was dirty, smelly and hot due to the fact that there was no window and the air conditioning was so loud it kept us awake at night. There was one collapsed armchair in the corner of the tiny room near a window pane covered with a dirty grey net curtain with a piece of cardboard behind it painted to look like a view!! As for the reception staff, they were rude, unfriendly,unhelpful and just incompetent. Also when my boyfriend and I arrived back after one night out we were questioned by door staff as to whether we should have both been there. They were extremely rude and leery and implied that I had just picked my boyfriend up in some bar!

    A total Dump


    My mother and I stayed here for the Commonwealth Games last year. We had to move to three different rooms before we found one that didn't smell strongly of smoke. Even so, the sofa in the "Executive Suite" we stayed in was badly stained, the sofa bed sank ominously if you sat on it, the chest of drawers had three handles missing, revealing screws sticking out, the "spa bath" didn't work, the decoration was faded and dirty and the whole stay was deeply disappointing. My mother had just undergone chemotherapy and we paid more than we had originally budgeted for because we knew we wouldn't be going out very much, and wanted somewhere comfortable to spend time in, to make the stay extra special - needless to say, we didn't spend any more time in our room than we absolutely had to. We filled in the complaint form at the end of our stay, and I had a long discussion with the manager in charge who promised they write and apologise - a year later I'm still waiting.



    What an absolutely shocking hotel. Key to the tiny room didn't work so

    had to get a porter to let us back in everytime we left it. I've

    visited Death Valley but it wasn't as hot as the temperature in the

    room. Breakfast was overpriced. If you looking for an overpriced, tacky

    hotel with tiny rooms then this is for you.

    This must be the world's worst and most pretentious


    The room I was offered was miniscule, dirty and smelly. The carpet was
