... for us to go and watch the World Cup final tomorrow. We have found the people here to be super friendly and chatty.

We are trying very hard to stay awake right now. We've been up for over 26 hours but want to try and get ourselves adjusted to the time change ASAP.

Tomorrow we are visiting Anfield stadium. Soooo excited! ❤️ Liverpool FC

... and it was immediately obvious why. The pub bar was lined with gay men of all ages who were completely friendly and referred to me as, “love.” As we toured the streets same sex couples lined the tables, and after a while I caught on to the looks that Nicolette was earlier referring to. It was either A) we were some of the few straight couples roaming the streets or B) they were eye sexing us through our clothes and it was a normal thing. Whichever it was, it ...

... It took longer than planned because of the trail signs being difficult to following in places and with panniers on it is near impossible to get a bike through the gates on trails that have been put in to stop motorbikes. We are rethinking the pannier bags for the rest of our ride through the UK. We are considering cutting down to one each and sending the others through to meet us in Copenhagen. The next few days we are in and around ...

... the very top. The views from the top were amazing, it is way higher than anything else in the city. We then walked to St Luke's church in the city centre. This church was hit by a incendiary bomb during the WWII blitz and the entire inside was destroyed, but left all of the walls intact. It is surrounded by a lovely garden and the inside has also been allowed to become green and filled with wild gardens. It makes for a large contrast between seeing the ...

... 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 Airport Hotel, South Manchester

    Joke hotel without anything 2 laugh at .

    from

    well its all been said and its all true ! absollute pitsville :(

    Laughably Bad hotel

    from

    Staggeringly poor hotel. It has no saving graces (as an airport hotel, its not even particularly near the airport), other than being an appropriate place to commit suicide.

    Avoid at all costs, even if all other hotels in Manchester were 10 times the price (which they're not)

    Nightmare hotel

    from

    On returning to this hotel from holiday we found our car broken into in this supposedly secure car park, we found three cars broken into. We had to report this to the police as the hotel had not bothered to report it . The police and glass repairer did not seem surprised as this is a regular occurance here. Please for your own sake do not use this hotel it is also rather scruffy

    What a total HOLE

    from

    Cripes! I couldn't BELIEVE the staff at this place. They were so poorly trained that they didn't even know how to pick up a phone. They were extremely rude and sloppy (except the young porter outside).

    I was stuck in this DREADFUL DIRTY RAT-HOLE of a hotel without any money (husband forgot to leave credit card with me) - and even though we had pre-paid for the room they wouldn't let me eat or drink anything until my husband returned the next day!!!

    I was appalled. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. And yes, my bathroom was mouldy too.

    Don't use at any cost - read on please!

    Used this Hotel & parking while on Holiday, October 2004,

    Worst Hotel I have ever stayed in

    from

    We read the reviews before visiting this Hotel and thourght people were exagerating,only to find it was as bad as people had written. The rooms were dark and dingy,we were meet by used beer glasses when we got out of the lift. The bath room was disgusting and the food very poor.we agree with the previus people and would not let a dog stay here. I would wellcome the managment views on this Hotel and they are more than wellcome to contact us. However there are complaints about the car parking we found the company secure airport parking first class and would definietly use them again. Beware the hotel has a shuttel bus which only runs ever hour and takes nearly an hour to get to the terminal. Living in Leeds if we had known this we would have just driven. A disgusting Hotel, Managment please feel free to contact us. I am sure they do not know how bad it is.

    Wouldn't put my dog here

    from

    Do not stay in this hotel!!!!! I had room 122. It was an old fashion looking room. That smelt funny! I moved the desk to use the electrical outlet and it was so dirty and dusty as well as when I touched the telephone it was sooo dusty. My room had a hole in the wall with a piece of paper stuck in it. I opened the draw of the night table and there was candy wrappers in it and an empy soda bottle behind the table. The bathroom had mold on the tile. Two days in a row I was not given toilet paper. I went to the front desk and they gave me a stack of tissues that they said was toilet paper. I eventually saw some on the maids cart and took some to my room. The redhaired desk clerk is very mean. I would go anywhere else. I am an ex-travel agent and I wouldn't have put my dog there.

    Avoid if you can possibly can!

    from

    Stayed here on business, Mar 04, had no choice as all airport hotels were full.Booked a "superior double room" which cost £95 plus £9.50 for breakfast.I was given room 327 which is not even listed on the room numbers panel as you exit the elevators!When I found the room, it looked like a broom cupboard from the outside and it took me about 5 swipes of my card to get the damn door open.Once inside I was not greeted with the bright modern decor I was promised on their website, but a dull old fashioned flowery design which looked like it came straight from faulty towers!The radiator was on full blast and the room was boiling, I turned the thermo to make it cooler and the dial came off in my hand. I asked reception for help but they said maintenance were gone for the day and someone might be available in a hour, noone showed up or apologised.There was no trouser press as promised in the room description.The bathroom was clean and modern though, no fault there which was a bonus.The breakfast was "self service", with grotty drinking glasses and below average looking food, I could only manage a piece of limp warm toast.If you are lucky you might get a "modern upgraded" room.The car park did not look safe.Choose at your peril..................

    Car Parking

    from

    Although the Hotel itself was satisisfactory. We experienced problems with the car parking facilities. This was due to the very narrow parking bays. There is no way unless you drive an 'original' mini that you could park within the defined bay and open your car door. As a result when we returned from holiday our car had been damaged. The hotel displays a sign saying 'cars parked at owners risk' therefore, they hold no responsibility. No way would we park here again or recommend anyone to do so.

    Don't Use Their Car Parking Package

    from

    Recently booked one of the hotels stay overnight and have your car parked for fortnight while you are abroad. The hotel use a company called VIP Services who remove your vehicle from the hotel and park it elsewhere ,with the idea being that the vehicle is returned to you at the airport on your return after you phone VIP Services once you have collected your baggage. In our case and other families on returning from the Caribbean on 16 July 2003 the phone line to VIP Services was dead and their other number just rang out with no reply...therefore no car, however on phoning the Britannia Hotel the only suggestion they could make was try the SAS Radisson hotel as the company had an office there. After walking to the SAS in another terminal at the airport...surprise, surprise no one at VIP Services office...however after about an hour and a half the staff at the SAS (who also use this service) found the owner of the company whilst we had found our vehicle in a nearby car park...... but no keys...after a total of two and a half hours we were given the keys to our car without a single apology from the staff at the Britannia who are obviously far enough away not to get involved when the problems occur and absolutely no apology from VIP Services. Another strange thing... I did'nt have to hand over any paperwork for the keys to my car and only gave them a registration number, therefore anybody can get your car ......if you can find a VIP Services staff member that is. On that day we were one of about 10 other owners looking for cars and some of those had been waiting considerably longer than two and a half hours and according to the police and staff at the SAS Radisson the same problem had occurred earlier in the week...Definately not recommended...and no acknowledgement from Britannia after having emailed their head office quality of service overall......zero (park your car in a car park ...its safer)
