This place (Lucas House) reminds me of a youth hostel in Bratislava circa 1970. And I have been to such places. The staff is really nice but it is hard to overstate how outdated the place is- harsh and noisy fluorescent lights; dirty carpet; dorm room furnishings. Breakfast is appalling- fake, dried out eggs under a hot lamp, canned fruit,...

The house keeping team opened my door for four times just because I was checking out late, the problem was I already paid for the late check out for £20. Finally, the receptionist said nothing about this while i was checking out at the front desk. It was really awful experience, and I strongly recommend those guests who doesn't need...

This was my second visit in two years. I was allocated Peter Scott building, and this has clearly been recently modernised to a nice standard. The room was very clean, a comfy king size bed (book a king not a standard room), nice and quiet. En suite bathroom had not been modernised but was perfectly acceptable. The restaurant for dinner...

I received a warm and friendly welcome when I arrived at Lucas House. My room on the 2nd floor next to the stairwell was quiet and adequately equipped. The decor and fittings were dated but the shower was hot and the bed was comfy. The towels was thick and fluffy and the bedding was soft. There was shower gel and...

Clean, well equipped rooms, well priced and convenient for the University. If you want to eat in the restaurant in the evening make sure you book as there can be limited tables for walk in customers..

Room was fine, reasonably spacious, bed a standard double and a bit too firm on the sides but ok, shower room again adequate. Tea and coffee making facilities supplied, tv in room, free wifi. All in all decent, not luxurious but that was not what we were looking for. Quiet, temperature good and reception fine.

Stayed here to see nephew at uni, not close to amenities so better with a car, though bus to central Birmingham does stop outside. Breakfast good, rooms adequate. Bar rarely open the weekend I was there.

this is ok for a one night stay. It is a 60sl70s building and the internal decor shows. Breakfast was average fare. The bedroom was dated. The most convenient thing is that it is in walking distance of the university. Also very quiet despite being off a main road.

I booked this venue for a family celebration involving 21 people of all ages. I had seen the venue was nice but the food and level of service far exceeded my expectations. It seemed like nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent. There was plenty of it and people had all chosen what they wanted to eat. There...
