I've never really felt too inclined to review any hotel previously but having had a great night's stay at the Copthorne in Brum, and having read so many negative/average reviews before my night there, I feel the need to express how great this hotel actually is. Maybe others have had an unfortunate bad experience or are just really pedantic, but having stayed in many 3 star and 4 star hotels over the years, this one is definitely 4 star through and through. Where are people commenting on the bad decor? Looked pretty smart to me! Not too clinical or anything unlike some other 4 star hotels which don't feel homely in any way. This one felt very homely for such a big place.
I was shooting a gig at the Symphony Hall so decided to book the Copthorne due to its close proximity (literally a 1 minute walk away). I paid around 63 quid for a single room including breakfast. Turned out to be a complete bargain. The room was incredibly spacious for a single (and with a double bed), well decorated, very clean etc. The reception staff were incredibly friendly upon my arrival and very welcoming. Same for the bar staff too and anyone else I encountered who worked there. Breakfast was top notch too - an impressive selection of cooked food, not too greasy either, plus fruit, cereal etc. Nice coffee too! Just wish I'd had time to check out the in-house Singaporean Chinese restaurant as well as the menu looked rather nice.
I really just don't get all the negative criticisms in the reviews on here. I'll most certainly be back at the Copthorne the next time I need a hotel in Brum. A fantastic place, and I'll be recommending to plenty of others too. Oh yeah, and there's a great jazz club just behind the hotel. A very chilled bar for a post-gig pint or two. Bonus!
