The room was a good size and clean.
My only complaint was that the mattress on the bed was very uncomfortable we hardly slept a wink due to this
a good value overnight stay
My friend and I stayed in a twin room to enjoy the birmingham christmas market, which is a regular event for us, but it became apparent to me that a stopover in the city centre could be at least double the price.
The Birmingham Hotel was relatively friendly, after a slightly awkward start, and the man behind reception was reasonable and helpful in booking the taxi. After a drink at the hotel bar we went to the festival and returned to the room around midnight. I feel the bathroom could have done with a little work, with the shower/bath facility stuck on 'bath' and the shaving mirror light was out of order, but my friend felt the room was well-sized for the price, clean, not too far from the city centre by taxi and the lady behind the counter at breakfast was friendly and helpful, and also helped when we had a slight issue using the card to get back into our room, which was quite well soundproofed. In conclusion then, for the price this was good value and I would consider staying here again, probably best for a group of friends on a light-hearted night out. Laurence.
Hotel needs considerable updating otherwise nice staff & friendly welcome.
Don't forget your ID and if you don't like stairs this isn't the place to stay
It's been a long time since a hotel has asked for ID before allowing me to stay.
I had to provide my driving license which was then copied. There was no life and no assistance to the 2nd floor. Restaurant was being refurbished so it was go out or have a takeaway in my room. Rooms were a great size but obviously decorated in the 80's including the bathrooms. Very outdated. This could be a lovely hotel but it's lacking in basic ameneties like a lift, up to date bathrooms and comes across as old fashioned.
room 20 was a massive let down
Toilet seat kept falling off.only 3 channels on TV and there unwatchable the brass double mains sockets spark and crackle when you plug into them .the shower had no thermostat so it either burnt you or froze you as for rest of hotel the majority of the walls looked like they were damp
Very nice, clean and spacious room.
Comfortable bed and really good hot shower.
The staff when I arrived and night staff very friendly.
Room was clean and tidy but very dated. Two out of four plug sockets worked. I had my daughter with me so need a TV to entertain her but only had three channels. Also disappointed with breakfast device. I'm glad I didn't pre pay for breakfast as the dining room/restaurant was not in use and all that was provided for breakfast was a few boxes of cereal and a loaf of bread by a toaster and tea and coffee. On arrival I was told a continental breakfast and this was clearly not the case. Therefore my daughter and I had to go into the city to buy breakfast as I refused to pay the £4.95 each for the above. Also the reception service in the morning wasn't the best as when I was quering things the staff members was on his mobile phone and even kept the person on the phone whilst dealing with me, therefore I didn't have his sole attention or the best service he could have given.
black curly hairs in sink (not mine) no pressure to shower .
dirty and ripped carpet , tv remote didnt work with tv , hotel under refurb !
poor but clean
The room was tidy and we'll laid out very traditional styling probably not touched since it was built though, the shower wouldn't stay on the wall as hook was broken and taped over with duct tape so I had to try and hold it whilst I showered also the bath shower mixer was broken and replaced with a bolt, there was a TV provided but no remote or option on side to turn tv on.
The light in the room the pull cord had been broken and not replaced. When paying the card machine had been unplugged so they couldn't take my payment by card luckily I had the cash but that left me short for the night after. The staff were just sat on the work tops one with headphones on just chilling and there was a girl slouched over the customer side whilst I was paying. Not very professional.
not worth the time, money and experience
After a long day full of meetings, I checked in at 11:30pm in a place that looked more like a run down hostel than a good value hotel.
My room was on the 2nd floor, by the time I got there I witnessed a common room fit for a squatter not the table tennis that was in it. The corridors and stairs (either nor elevator or the receptionist was not bothered to tell me about it) got that creepy feeling of something bad and nasty about to happen. First impression of the room were of a place that not very well looked after - old and dirty, full of broken staff. The internet was not working. No TV remote control. There was a problem with the shower - no hot water and they need a plumber to sort out the pressure. Cautious: the management of the hotel treats kids cereal and bread as the main ingredients to a healthy, diverse and invigorating breakfast. The only good thing may have been the free parking. Yet, I may have been lucky with the two guys parked next to mine who looked too stoned to cause any damage. Overall, never again in a lifetime.
