Arrived for a weekend with some mates for two nights out in Birmingham. Was one of the cheaper hotels in the area and the pictures looked promising so we booked it.
The hotel itself is easy to find and in a good location, Tesco Express just across the road and only a fiver taxi to get into the centre where all the bars/clubs are. Nice secure car park too.
Service was ok. One of the male members of staff wasn't particularly welcoming. The reception is quite drab, makes you feel a bit like you're in a haunted hotel. No lift either so the treck upstairs is no fun when you're drunk hehe.
The room itself was quite nice, however on arrival none of the lights or TV were plugged in so we had to pull the fridge out to access the multi socket and plug everything in, really this should have been done for us in advance.
TV is small, Wifi reception is dreadful, ended up using my 3g. Shower was about as powerful as a watering can, and the complimentary soap wouldnt clean a little kittens paws. The room had a fridge which was very handy, so we didnt need our friend Little George.
Bed was comfortable and had lovely pillows despite what my trolling friends said. Sound nights sleep.
Breakfast in the morning was hit and miss, the first time it was a bit cold but the attractive waitress offered a lovely service, her smile lit up our day. The second morning breakfast was hotter, but the waitress came across quite impolite and unwelcoming. Too many plants in the windows too, looked a bit like a greenhouse.
All in all, for the price, location and all important secure car park, it's worth the money!
