“Wonderful hotel!”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

Spent a night here while in town for a concert. It was the most wonderful experience. Staff were pleasant and attentive (enjoyed our chat with Marc on reception about old music stars!) . Room was way beyond expectations, clean modern and the bed was so comfy. Enjoyed a meal in the restaurant which was exceptional. Looking forward to returning in April when we go to another concert!

I have just arrived home from afternoon tea/high tea at this beautiful hotel. The Christmas decorations upon entrance to the Hotel were beautiful and very effective, from the icicle lights on the stairs to the amazing silver trees scattered throughout the hotel. Kelly our waitress was delightful knowledgeable, friendly and professional. She attended to our every need and gave excellent service. The high tea was superb. The sandwiches were tasteful, the scones, still warm were amazing and the desserts were out of this world. You could tell that they were made in house and by someone who loved their job and we were delighted when Rachel, the pastry chef popped out to say hello and to tell us what the desserts were. The mulled wine, made by Nicholas was warm and festive and one of the best that I have tasted. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, with a surprise plate with chocolate writing and beautiful truffles. A must for anyone visiting Birmingham.

I usually visit my best friend in Birmingham. She booked for us to stay at this hotel as its new and came highly recommend. I must say we did have a great time!! However, the rooms are a bit on the small side, well the room we had was. The service was great, however, the housekeeping could have been better.

From reception to leaving the staff were personable and efficient.

The hotel is contemporary with modern electrics.

Good breakfast.

Only criticism was my room 412 had very poor wi fi reception and no phone signal on two networks.

I would definitely return

We bought a groupon voucher for a six course tasting menu in the alto restaurant and booked on a Saturday night. Hubs said shall we stay and so we booked the night . The food was superb and our waiter David was the most polite and unassuming personality that spoke volumes about his pride in his role not just on behalf of the hotel but for his customers . We had the opportunity to fill out a survey based on who you would want to nominate as a star of the month in the hotel and so we did hope he got it . Everyone we came in contact with was a credit to the hotels staff and after filling out the survey we received a thank you from the director. Rooms fab we will go back this is up to the minute and full of all you want for a brilliant stay

We stay here on a Saturday nightbookedan offer for room dinner and breakfast, there was a slight problem that there was allowance for dinner but we booked on there website which said two course.This was sorted out without a problem thanks to Daniel. It was our wedding Anniversary and at the end of themeal they brought a plate with chocolates as a treat such a nice touch and we were offered a glass of semi spark;ling desert wine on the house.
The beds are so comfortable and two great pillows product fromthe white company.

Could have done with a bottle of water in the room. Breakfast was good

Parking was 5.00 for your stay and you didnt have to depart when checked out you could stay in Birmingham as long as you want.

Planning on going back to try there afternoon tea
