Close to Birmingham Uni
Great for a quick stay to drop daughter back to Uni after Christmas.
Very nice staff, friendly, helpful. Breakfast simple but plenty of variety. Would recommend. Cheap and cheerful.
Simple basic clean friendly place to stay
Arrived to this hotel to be greeted by the manager Keith who also assisted me with my luggage.
He was polite and helpful. He showed us around. I was immediately able to settle in right away. The place isn't 4-star its more 2-star but the place is clean as were the rooms and beds. I used the facilities to heat up our microwave meals and make pack lunches for the next day. The room I was given was lovely, however unfortunately the bed was placed under the window so the light from outside caused me to have a really unpleasant stay. I couldn't sleep all night. I will choose a different room next time around but I would definitely stay again. Location is close a 12 minute drive from town centre and a 5 minute drive to Birmingham tower ballroom. Cabs are cheap. Very affordable compared to London!
Ok for a stop over
Room was ok.
you get what you pay for.
Cheap and Chearful
There were a few constructive points I feel obliged to make: This was a mixed smoking building.
Even though I booked a non smoking room you could smell the smoke from the other room. The room was clean though - which is great. So many people get that wrong. Everything in the room was very cheap. And there were cigarette burns in the bath to go along with the smell. The internet did work - however dropped out a lot. Breakfast was a help yourself budget equivalent of someone taking out their home cupboard contents. Which worked ok for me. The host was lovely. And you did get served a hot drink. Everything else you did yourself in a tiny corner. For the price I think it is an ok deal in terms of value. After actually experiencing it I am not sure I would stay again.
Nice hotel, friendly service
Enjoyed my stay, which was overnight for work.
Owner was friendly and helpful. Hotel was nicely presented and comfortable. The bed was especially comfy. The carpet in my room didn't feel that clean under foot so I kept my socks on. It was great value for the money though, close to the centre by car and I was happy with the accommodation. Breakfast in the morning was nice - coffee, toast, fruit, cereal.
Cheap and Cheerful
I stayed in the hotel for business on 3 nights but after the first night I didn't really want to go back.
It was very cheap and therefore I suppose I should not expect too much. The owner was very helpful and friendly and I didn't feel uncomfortable. The room was small and extremely tired and I had to keep spraying air freshener because it smelled of cigarette smoke (when I returned home my clothes smelled of tobacco smoke). The furnishings were definitely in need of replacement. Apart from a rail there was nowhere to store clothes so I had to live out of my suitcase. Parking was good, and the establishment is well situated. It was surprising quiet and I wasn't really disturbed during the night. Most of the guests were people who worked in Birmingham and stayed there during the week. I would be reluctant to call it a hotel, more of a B&B/hostel. Breakfast was cereal, toast, fruit and eggs, for me that was fine, but if you expect a cooked breakfast, it is not available. Would I stay here again, probably not.
Excellent value for money, very clean rooms, well furnished, nice bed, excellent breakfast selection
Don't be put off by the outward appearance of this hotel, it does look rather austere, the inside is a different story, the rooms are very well cleaned, beds and bedding clean and comfortable, rooms very nicely furnished.
Manager is very helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast is served in a very nice warm lounge area with a huge selection of cereals, toasts, boiled eggs, spreads, fresh fruit etc. This is an ideal centrally located hotel for a business person with a limited budget. Very popular place with contractors.
Could be a great hotel
I loved the garden and location, but the room was tired.
Cheap and good value
Good for access to the M5 or Birmingham.
Rooms fine and breakfast great. Proprietor welcoming.
Good value for money - clean and comfortable although basic.
Friendly customer service who were very helpful and gave me a quiet room. Would stay here again.
