Stayed 3 nights care of tesco club card deals (£100 per night) b&b . Just at the edge of town and also On the edge of the main nightlife street! (Make sure you don't have room having Main Street!) Lovely room, staff at reception very pleasant and staff at breakfast couldn't do more for you. Room clean and tidy , comfortable . Only issue we have is that they do not replenish the tea / coffee in the room and do not replace the mugs and glasses. However we did ask for extra supplies at reception which we were given without hesitation . All in all a lovely hotel

After staying here for a course in March, my friend and I vowed to return for some Christmas shopping. We were not disappointed and were warmly greeted like old friends. The room we had on this occasion was identical to the room we had stayed in previously. Although a 'twin' room it consisted of a very large bed and an equally large sofa bed that had been made up ready for our stay. My friend said that the sofabed was extremely comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. The receptionist told us that, because there was a party going on downstairs that they would move us to the upper floor so that we weren't disturbed by the DJ. This was very considerate. The breakfast was lovely, with plenty of choice and our coffee pot was topped up on our request. The hotel was very busy with guests, but it was calm and not noisy in the evening. It is extremely well situated for the cinema, and the German Market. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Broad Street can be a little boisterous on a Saturday night, but this is the city and we felt safe walking to and from the hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The room attendants deserve a special mention, always a cheery wave in the corridors and entertaining to talk to. I would certainly stay here again and look forward to my next visit. I particularly like that fact that you cannot access the stairs or lift without your room card, which is a bit of added security, especially for female guests. I think the manager and staff should be congratulated on their professional yet friendly approach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors if you are a light sleeper. However, this will not help with cit...

I think the receptionist saw us as two young girls who wanted a drinking night out. We made it clear that we were there for shopping purposes... We were placed on the first floor which was very loud. There was a private party downstairs.

We payed £89 for the room for the night without breakfast. The beds were uncomfortable put up beds. The walls are rough, carpets run down, heavily in need of re plastering and decorating. Not impressed with the price and quality.

After staying in about 15 different hotels in Birmingham over the last year this hits the desired requirements.
Central enough, an extremely warm welcome from attentive staff. Quick check in.
The rooms are perfect. Not sure if its true with all rooms but a separate loo and a cool bathroom.....all I booked was a standard room.
Novotel does not sound like a quality branded hotel but trust me it is and worth a stay if you need quality at an affordable price.

The hotel is in a good city centre location. The staff were very helpful and went out of there way to accommodate our requests.

The beds were comfortable and the the rooms were of a decent size.

We required a room which was suitable for a wheelchair user, the bathroom had a bath however we were able to select a chair to assist with bathing.

The food was enjoyable.

Stayed here whilst visiting the good food show. Great location close to the city center and local to night life. Room was at the side of the hotel, which we were glad of because I guess this hotel can be noisy at night. Room was relatively clean and had all the things you need. However toilet was quite offensive smelling and very small and has this room was very hot the smell was quite intense at times. I did report this at checkout and was told "OK"???
When we arrived at the hotel the gentleman that checked us in was quite rude and did not even explain where breakfast was how to get to our room so hence we were wondering around looking for our room and we did not know you needed your room card to make the lift work. Whilst security is excellent at this hotel it would have helped if these things were told to us. He also was quite rude when we asked why he needed to charge our pre paid room with 1p ?? I understood the principle BUT felt there was no need to be so curt!!
Breakfast was excellent with everything you could possibly want hot and plentiful.
