The following are examples of some of the poor customer reviews on Britannia hotels from Trustpilot

  • · “Disgusting sacking staff because of Covid-19 and turfing onto the street out of hotel accommodation with under 24hrs notice will never stay in Britannia Hotels again. The government is even underwriting 80% of salaries what a dreadful hotel chain” (Trustpilot, 2020).
  • · “Stayed once. Really, really poor quality. Staff good but Management atrocious” (Trustpilot, 2020)
