We stayed Friday to Sunday for a city break. It is a short walk to the hotel from Birmingham New Street railway station. Check in was speedy and friendly, and our room on the first floor was spotless and comfortable. It is possible to upgrade to a room with an I-Pod dock, coffee maker etc, but we could play the I-Pod through the TV and we were out and about so we didn't bother to upgrade. The room was spacious, we could control the temperature, we had a large double bed and there was a large sofa bed too. The bathroom was well equipped, the shower was effective and the towels and toiletries were fine. There is a well stocked mini bar but there is a Sainsburys right next door to the hotel so we bought our own wine and water and chilled it instead. Plenty of TV and radio channels, effective hairdryer, in fact everything we needed. Room was very quiet but we were at the back, I don't know what it would be like at the front as we were on the first floor.Breakfast was lovely, there are plenty of tables and a great choice of food. Again the staff were courteous and helpful. There are free newspapers and TVs in the breakfast area for some of the seats so if you are dining solo you can watch TV. There is a small childrens' play area off the lobby with books and games and a playstation. There is a steam room we didn't use. We had booked a late train to go home on the Sunday and so I enquired if it was possible to have a later check out rather than noon. That was no problem and we were allowed to keep our room until 5pm! Which meant we were able to go out and come back and freshen up and pack before our train, it made all the difference. It is a lovely hotel, all you need is there and the location is fabulous. I shall definitely return.
