Myself and my wife stayed at the Mint Hotel on 29th July for one night to celebrate her birthday. Living locally we knew the area well so had no issues finding the hotel. We booked the hotel as it was cheaper to do this than pay for taxis back to Cannock, allowing us both to have a tipple! Although be warned the price of "tipples" around Brindley Place are a tad over-inflated!
Check in was easy and the hotel appeared clean and modern. The room was not overly spacious but as we were only here for one night it was not an issue. The room contained an iron and ironing board, hairdryer and an apple IMAC TV! I have never seen this in a hotel before and it gave you access to TV (inc Sky Sports 1,2 & 3), radio and the internet, although I was to scared to use it in case I started occuring extra charges! :-)
The bathroom was again on the small side, but the shower was lovely and complimetary tolietries were provided.
The night we stopped was warm and the instructions to use the air conditioning, while appearign simple, didn't seem to work as it didn't appear to have an affect on the temperature of the room.
We had breakfast included in our rate, and the food was very nice. We were invited to use the buffet section for cereal, fruit etc while we ordered a full english. However the Full English came a little quicker than expected and was taken away to be kept warm, although it then failed to re-appear for 20 minutes.
All in all a good stay and would certainly book the hotel again if the price was right (compared to taxis home).
