reception staff were well informed and professional. Location of the hotel is close enough to most things you'll need to visit in Birmingham. the Restaurant was an OK experience. Furniture and decore need renovating.

Horrendous experience staying in this hotel, arrived at check in at around 6pm to find out that most of the rooms still hadn't been cleaned.

Our stag party of 16 spent 2 weekend nights in this hotel. It is well situated for shopping and clubbing, was clean and breakfasts were great. Whilst we were there, they had a problem with their boiler system but reacted very well to our complaint/concern. I would happily recommend this hotel.

Dear Simon_of_Barr, Thank for the kind review and comments given the issues we faced at the weekend. Obviously the breakdown of the boilers was outside of our control and & due to it being the weekend the part was not available for delivery so I created a very tense situation for everyone in the hotel. I'm really pleased the team...

On the edge of the centre (easy access from Motorways down the A38) but within a short walk (20-30 minutes to the Bull Ring / New Street Station) Hotel rooms are large, but dated.. although everything is clean and works. Breakfast is typical English fare, and excellent quality (may be limited for non UK visitors who prefer wider choice of...

Dear Shuttie, Thanks for the great review. Historically we had more cold meats and cheeses on the buffet but they were not being eaten during breakfast so we added some other items to compensate. If any guest would like a variation to what is on display we would be happy accommodate any reasonable requests but it great you have raised...

Not much you can say about this hotel as it has been built to perform a function and there is not much more to it. The rooms are a little dated and the handle on the window in our room was hanging off and could have been very dangerous if it had fallen three floors down and hit a passer...

Nice room on 6th floor, only wish it wasn't on the side of the motorway as it was loud all night. Even with the window shut it was quite noisy. However, it was clean and we only stayed there after a concert so was good location to get back to, easy to find.
