I stayed here for four nights on business recently. Check in was fast and friendly. I was also upgraded which was very welcome.
The hotel appears to have been recently renovated and the room was spacious, modern and comfortable. The TV was large with plenty of channels to watch. The pay movies were also good. There was a wide selection and they were reasonably priced (£5.95 for a recent film).
The bathroom was excellent. Well laid out and there was an on/off/volume switch and speaker so that you could put on a music station on the TV and listen in the bathroom. The wardrobe was plenty large enough and lit up well when opened. There was another cupboard with fold out ironing board but this idea did not work too well in practice.
My only real complaint was that when I checked in none of the various data sockets in my room worked. I reported this and they managed to get the internet socket working straight away. It took a cuple of days to get the phone working and they never got the HDMI port which would have allowed me to connect my laptop to the TV working at all.
I ate once in the hotel, in the bar. The food was average pub type quality and choice and the service was very good. I noticed though that the same foos was priced more expensively on the room service menu as well as the hotel adding a £4 tray charge! I would have eaten more in the hotel but this put me off. Breakfast was above average in quality and had the usual selection.
Check out was quick and they knocked some of my bill of when I mentioned the socket issue.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel as a very nice place to stay if you are in the Birmingham/Solihull area.
