We were looking for a hotel in the centre of Birmingham, and it was the quirky photos and excellent reviews that encouraged to choose the Penta. How right they were. What a wonderful hotel. Everything was superb - initially the outstanding decor, then the warm welcome on check-in, the view from our room on the 7th floor, the same quirky and unusual yet magnificent interior design of the first floor, and as for the standard of breakfast provided the next morning - I have never ever seen a breakfast like it. The presentation was perfect - there was every different item you could think of; in addition to the usual drinks and hot choices usually found on a breakfast buffet, there was every type of fruit, sliced, diced or segmented, every type of bread and pastry product - each beautifully named accordingly, many different fruit juices including bottles of water laid in ice - and specially for those with a sweet tooth there were hot pancakes with maple syrup. I may not have remembered every item but suffice to say I was amazed. Not only by the very high standard of presentation but because of the careful way it was set up, it was nicely tucked away into quite a small alcove. I should also add that the 2 breakfast girls kept on top of the service, quietly ensuring that everything was always kept to a high standard. If I had to find a grumble about this exciting and vibrant hotel it was that the bottom of our bathroom door needed a touch up of paint - but during one of our chats with the lovely staff we learnt that the bedrooms were being refurbed within the next few weeks - So we can't wait to return to see how on earth they can be improved!! Thank you so much for a superb weekend spent in a hotel with a difference.
