Stayed here as part of a trip to the NIA. Before we arrived we rang to find out where we could park and were told the car park was full. Almost as an afterthought the girl on the phone said, "oh, but you can park in the multi storey next to the hotel at the same rate." Amazing.
Upon arrival were greeted by a surly receptionist. Aimee? Why some people choose to go into the service industry is beyond me. Maybe she was having a bad day/week/life.
Room was ok, pretty small and with a lovely view of some houses and a road. But we are in the centre of Birmingham so it could be worse.
We made the mistake of thinking we had turned on the air con when we went out. When we came back after a night out, the room was hotter than a footballers armpit after 90 minutes. No amount of button switching and knob twisting would make cold air come out. We ended up turning it down as much as possible and opening the window. Mistake. When we sobered up and read the poster in the morning it informed us that cooling was not available in March.
The Apple TV thing in the room looked quite cool but the remote ended up annoying me and I kept losing it in the bed.
Would probably not stay here again as it's a bit generic although if I wanted a quick sweat weight loss treatment I might come back. But only if Aimi was on reception.
