The "hotel" looks like a council estate from the outside, and doesnt do a particularly good job of shedding this image on the inside.
We had a tiny double bed - at 5'10" I don't expect my feet to be off the end of the mattress! Lowered, industrial-style false ceiling makes the rooms feel like an 80s office building. Bathroom was a decent size, but mould was rife. Internal corridors and common areas were in dire need of a refurb.
Service level was pretty poor - one staff member continued a personal conversation for 5 minutes while a queue of people waited to checkout (unfortunately it wasn't clear she was staff other wise we would have had words!).
Location is ok, easy to get in and out from Birmingham.
Overall, would avoid. This was a last minute booking as there were no other hotels available in the city. Would not return.
