The Carlton Hotel
The reception is very dark and not welcoming.
We were put on the 3rd floor which is actually the attic. The first problem is the lift only goes to the second floor so you have to carry your cases up a flight of stairs, however the second problem is the lift is so small it would only hold me and 1 piece of luggage. It said max 4 people. (perhaps it was made in lillyput). Just getting ourselves and our luggage to the room took more than several journeys and was very tiring. I forgot to mention the carpark which is situated round the back of the hotel and there is no rear entrance. It's not a massive walk but just a bit frustrating especially when you realize you have the above to navigate. The room it's self was small but tidy. However it was in desperate need of redecoration. Very dated Woodchip walls with a paper border that was hanging off in several places, the velux window wouldn't close which wasn't a problem weather-wise as it was very warm, but there was a seagull perched just above the window which decided to scream, Mine. Mine. Mine. (finding nemo style) intermittently through the night. I'm not blaming this on the hotel management but maybe they should fix the window. Another problem was there was an old plastic shower cubical actually in the room. Old pipe work coming out of the ceiling down into the shower. Difficult to describe but shoddy workmanship indeed. The only reasonable experience was the breakfast. Nothing special but the lady taking our order was friendly helpful and smiled. When we left we didn't see any staff, so there was no, thank you, hope you enjoyed your stay, safe journey or how's your father. Just dropped the key to the room in a box and left.
Not quite what I expected
Booked here as it was by far the cheapest: all the budget chains charging top whack (because of half term?).
A bit down-at-heel, and i suspect people had been smoking in our room. The simple Yale night-latch didn't seem to offer enough security, and I felt that the area was a bit seedy, especially at the back where the unsurfaced car park is. Lots of loud talking from balcony of room below, and you could hear conversations nearby. In Birmingham, an establishment like this would have 'asylum seekers' in it. We paid only £25 for B&B, but I wouldn't want to stay there again, as `i didn't feel totally safe. Left before breakfast, so cannot comment on quality.
