I was expecting the worst when booking this hotel and I found the sister hotel in Liverpool grubby and dirty. I have to say i was plesently surprised. For the price that we paid I have to say the hotel was very good, execellent location, coming straight out onto the main street in Birmingham - New Street, the hotel is actually connected to Primark!! The bull ring shopping centre is a two minute walk away.
The rooms were sufficient, as we were on a city break we didnt plan on spending time in the rooms, cleaned daily, tea/coffee making facilities, toitletories in the bathroom also refreshed daily.
Had a drink in the bar one evening and the lady who was working there was very helpful and friendly.
2 issues I have with this hotel - on check in, my visa debit card from Ireland wasnt acceptable, I didnt realise this and had to use my cash I had for the break, this was very inconvienient. I asked the lady if i could go and take money out later and that wasnt an option at all, I had to pay on check in! I found that very irratating and wish Id known before I left Ireland and could have brought more money rather than using foreign ATMs.
Other issue, only a small one - the lifts, they would drive you demented, very slow to move, sometimes they would go the opposite way you wanted!! Probably should have taken the stairs but been on the fifth floor i was been lazy!! :)
