Arrived for a business trip and was asked on arrival if I'd like a room facing the front or the back. I asked what the difference was and was told the back was quieter, so I chose...the back!
Meeting went fine - well catered for and very helpful staff in the business centre. Had a good meal out and retired not too late into the evening to my 'quiet' room. Didn't sleep a wink! During the day I'd noticed through the meeting room window a large derelict building opposite which had become home to a variety of seagulls. Fair enough - given our Summer this year I would probably want a break from the seaside, but I seem to need the ozone-rich sea air to knock out the sound of seagulls squawking all night and Birmigham can't deliver that!
So...I'd use tis place again: nothing wrong with it, but the back rooms aren't necessarily the quieter ones! Maybe when the derelict building is either flattened or likelier redeveloped it'll have some sort of bird deterrent applied to remove the issue, but meantime study the birdlife as you arrive and be guided by it in your choice of room!
