I stayed here with my husband as my daughter lives in Birmingham. The Hotel is stunning, you can tell a lot of thought has gone into this place! I wasn't sure about the fancy checking kiosks at first (being older I'm not au fair with technology) but they were actually very straight forward, a bit like airport checking.
The rooms are very comfortable-great beds, with a choice of hard/soft pillows which my husband liked. The newspaper on the loo made us chuckle, which turned out to be the menu/hotel brochure..we took that with us! The view wasn't great, but we weren't really worried as we were going out.
We had a drink in the bar, which was very pleasant my husband was spoilt for choice with the selection of beers and Ales, and the furnishings are lovely. We didn't have dinner, but really wish we had as the menu looks fabulous..but we made up for it at breakfast,I liked that breakfast ran until 11am and was definitely worth the extra £12 we paid when we booked.
We had a trip out to Warwick the next day, 30mins on a train which was a spur of the moment thing, the train station is just next to the hotel.
The biggest thing for me though was the staff, they just can't do enough for you, (checking train times for us and delivering them to our table at breakfast) everywhere in the hotel we were greeted with a smile and a hello, they clearly love theyre jobs! I definitely would recommend staying here..and for such a classy hotel, it's not expensive!!
