“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

Me and my partner arrived to this hotel and was met with a very friendly welcoming smiling receptionist. She check in us in with no problems and told us about the free breakfast and dinner options.

The room we had was large and in the bathroom there was complimentary shampoo and conditioner, hand wash and mosturizer.

The hotel also has free wifi which is always a bonus.

The location is perfect if you are going to star city as me and my partner where. Its just a stones throw away.

We will be returning to this hotel. Its great value for money and as I said great location for star city.

However if I was wanting to go to birmingham city I would not stay in this hotel as its a bit to far.

I always try to book this hotel when I am in Birmingham as it isn't too busy and, provides good value for money and has lots of parking.

The rooms are clean and there is free wi fi.

I am not a big breakfast person but there is enough choice if I fancy something other than tea and toast.

My only criticism is that it can get busy at breakfast especially in the summer when they have big coach parties but I have in the past taken my breakfast back to my room and no one has said anything.

All in all, good value for money for a hotel that is just on the outskirts of Birmingham City.

Room Tip: I try to get the King Room as it is really spacious but they also provide adjoining rooms for famili...

Arrived here with my partner- booked online and paid however they denied this and made us pay again, turned out we were right and are waiting for the second charge to be refunded. Room nice, good size, free parking and good varied breakfast with lots of choice. A drive into centre not really near anywhere so do need transport. Didn't get offered anything as a Hilton member however. Might go back if in area however would prefer more central.

I would give this no stars if I could. I had to stay here as it had been booked and paid for by the company I work for when working long shifts in the area. Whilst the room was OK and the bed comfortable, the food was abysmal and they ran out of the only half decent meal, the curry, on the Sunday night. They switched the toaster off at breakfast between guests causing problems when you wanted toast and the check out staff did not understand paid for company. A rubbish hotel, avoid at all costs.

Used the hotel overnight on the way to Ludlow Market. The rooms were spacious comfortable and clean. Chairs available in the room which saves having to sit on the bed. Bathroom was good with a shower with a seat in which was very useful. hairdryer and iron in the room would definitely stay their again. Breakfast is self service and room only small but adequate and basic breakfast but includes most things you want such as toast, bacon scrambled eggs, cereal, etc

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and next to the staircase which was a little noisy but slept well anyway...

The rooms are very nice, but the food is below average pub food with little selection. The beer is also watery and tastes the same no matter the brand. Some of the staff were friendly and helpful but the later night staff were dismissive and abrupt. The WIFI was very slow and struggle with connection, however the close proximity to star city is very good.
Breakfast..ok nothing special.

Stayed here for 1 night as we were visiting our niece for her birthday. It is not centrally located but that was not an issue as we had traveled by car so were more interested in a hotel offering free parking.

Stayed on the ground floor and our room was clean and modern. Bed was comfortable and the room was quiet.

Considering we had paid £50 for the night, I was expecting just a continental breakfast but was pleasantly surprised to discover the hotel offered a hot breakfast. Eggs, bacon, sausages, baked beans and mini hash brown potato thingys. There was also fruit, yoghurt, cereals and bread items too.

Will definitely stay here again at this price.
