Great value and good location

Couldn't ask for anything more! This hotel is not quite in the centre of Birmingham but its only a short taxi ride or walk down one road. The price was perfect, the room was clean and the staff were friendly. Perfect for our shopping trip and child free night out!

Never again

We booked 2 rooms as a family. ON check in, we asked for rooms to be adjoining each other. Reception staff told us that wasn't possible, sorry no vacant rooms. Rooms were smelly - carpets couldn't be dirtier. We requested twin beds for one room, instead of double - no, that wasn't possible either. At breakfast, we were sat on two different tables although we requested if the two tables could be joined together. Overall, the attitude of the hotel is 'take-it-or-leave-it' On the positive side, the location great, and price was good.

Cheap and sleazy

First room - radiator would not turn off, so needed window open, then could not breathe for gloss paint fumes. Also no toilet roll, and room size approx 5ft x 11 ft. After much insistence that there were only suites and family rooms available, they eventually moved me to a twin room in the adjacent hotel, which did have toilet roll, but not one drawer. It also came with a full complement of gray, stained towels and sheets. No remote for TV, which only received 4 channels. Also the window in this room did not close - old sash style window in disrepair. Wake-up calls were either non-existent (when I had moved room) or at the wrong time (4 am instead of 5 am when the clocks had moved back). Internet was 10GBP per half hour, and they posted draconian rules like no food or drink not purchased at the hotel allowed in your room, likewise no visitors allowed in room. Good points - very cheap, good location. In future I would be happy to drive further and stay somewhere reasonable.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Use Birmingham Public Library (in City Center) for free 1 hour Internet access, rather than pay 10GBP for half an hour in the foyer of this hotel
