Holiday Inn Express Birmingham South A45

Reviewed 26 October 2011

The hotel is new - and it shows. Everything feels fresh, vibrant and clean, up to the usual Holiday Inn standards. Room size was good for the money. No complaints about that, or the furniture and fittings. Bathroom was sparklingly clean. As mentioned in other reviews, the breakfast could have been as fresh as the decoration. There's no excuse for powdered eggs in a hotel of this standard. Let's hope this is something which can be addressed through the chain on a national level.

My wife and I stayed for 1 night and found the hotel very good for the price. Its still fairly new judging by the decor and our room was a good size. The bathroom was very impressive for this category hotel and was modern and clean. The shower was also nice and big.

Unfortunately the hotel made a huge mistake in their furnishings by selecting the most uncomfortable beds you can get. Is this not the point of a hotel to surly make sure the beds are perfect and then focus on all the other furnishings and finishes in the room? The aircon in our room(305) was not working either and I had to keep the bedroom window open all night and listen to traffic noise.

Next morning we had breakfast and this too is was a let down. The scrambled eggs was not fresh and was made with pasteurized egg powder or liquid. The sausages was the cheap frozen type and very rubbery. Everything else was OK. I think they should just leave the hot breakfast selection and keep to continental if they want to bring the room and breakfast in to budget. Do a decent hot breakfast and charge for it.

All in all this is a good hotel for the price. If you are looking for a clean fresh look then this is for you.

Stayed here for four nights and enjoyed everyday. The hotel is new. Rooms are spacious, bathroom shower very spacious and clean. Fresh towels everyday if you need them and room cleaned. Breakfast has hot bread, delicious croissants, hot eggs, sausage and lots more. Only complaint is that the parking garage is not attached to the hotel so you have to walk down where the cars come in to get back to the hotel after parking. Great place to stay if you are on a budget.

To get in the car park, you need to be heading out of Birmingham, the entrance is just immediately past the hotel. Knowing that in advance would have saved us about half an hour. There is roadside parking but I have no idea how to get to it! The car park is very tight indeed so will be a struggle if have anything bigger than about a Ford Focus, unless you get there very early. Rooms however are large for this class of hotel and very comfortable. The bed linen felt a little rough but perhaps it was because it was brand new - we were there just a few days after the hotel opened. Breakfast was excellent, and the service all round was great. We'd stay here again.

After arriving late after a heavy day's travelling my family and i were dreading a long check in you usually get but were so pleasantly suprised at how quick the night staff working were able to get us checked in and up to our room in a matter of minutes they were both friendly and helpful and even helped with our luggage as we have a young child . Our room was very clean and comfortable and the comfy beds added more pleasure to our stay. When we are in birmingham again this is our No.1 choice of hotel.

Stayed for 1 night in this brand new hotel. Room facilities first class with huge shower and lovely bed. Large flat screen TV and new towels and bedding. The included breakfast is extremely good value for money. Would definitely stay again.

Staff 10/10 everyone was very pleasant and helpfull
Cleanliness 10/10 Well done Lynn!
Food 10/10 breakfast was excellent - well done Andrew
Front desk 10/10 always a smile - well done Jan/Kate
Location 9/10 ideal for all the local attractions.
Bar 10/10 all the above really - well done Tamvir.
Price 10/10 we actually got a very good deal, but even if we had payed the full amount i would still recommend this hotel
The reason i can name the staff is that they all were prepared to speak to you in a friendly way NOT because it was their job.
