Stayed here on our way back from Italy via Birmingham Airport. We booked late and got a deal. I would not have been happy to pay full price. The first room was tired and the carpet grubby. Due to recent electrical work in the room which had not been tidied up properly we were then upgraded to a penthouse room. This was a huge 2 bed apartment with views of the city. It was great for space, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchenette well equipped. However, it has the feel of an office block - the carpets are very thin and stained, the pure white paintwork a bit marked, and some of the dining chairs had seen better days. See pictures. Additionally the sofa was SO uncomfortable and not in a great position to actually view the very large TV. I'd say if you love ultra modern and lot of space over comfort go for it, but we wont be staying again. We got a deal so weren't too unhappy - but if I'd paid full price for the penthouse I'd have been upset. The girl on reception (Karen) who sorted out our booking was lovely however.
