Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel in November. We wanted to visit the Birmingham German market and make a nice weekend out of it. Although we only live 20 miles away from Birmingham centre, we wanted to stay in a hotel to save driving back on the night.
After reading the reviews I must say I was a little put off about going, however I tried to stay on the positive side. The hotel itself was easy enough to find, the first impression of the hotel was nothing special, it was just decent. The staff were very friendly and held our bags for us in a store room because we arrived a few hours before we were supposed to check in. Me and my boyfriend caught the bus into the heart of Birmingham and this wasn't a problem the busses came every 5 minutes if that! After a bit of lunch we returned to the hotel and checked in, we we're given our room key and followed the directions for the room. Yeah I must admit, it wasn't a 5 star hotel but it doesn't deserve a bad review either! We found our room just fine and soon as we arrived to it, our first impression was great :) decent sized bed, nice bathroom with a shower and a TV :) the next day we went to the pool, it was WARM! Just what we wanted in the winter :D best to get to the pool early though, it started to fill up within the first half an hour it opened. They were doing some refurbishments around the pool side, I was slightly disappointed that the jacuzzi wasn't even there like it stated on the original hotel page but oh well, I could see they were building a brand new one. The hotel had a lovely steamer and sauna with an extremely friendly man on the reception desk by the pool area.
I would recommend this hotel for a cheap and cheerful night however. I wouldn't recommend it for longer than 2. It could do with some new carpets I must admit! The doors were a little loud on the night time, they could do with an anti door slamming system fitted on the top.
I'd recommend this hotel for couples looking for a cheap night in Birmingham, I wouldn't recommend it for families. It could do with a little touch up.
