I stayed at this hotel for one night to attend a work training course in Birmingham. It cost £60 for a double room including breakfast. The hotel was a 20 minute walk from Birmingham New Street Station so I took a taxi instead for £4.40.
It was a bit confusing when I entered the building as the ground floor was empty with just 3 lifts. I only noticed the small sign saying the reception was on the 3rd floor after a while.
My room was located away from the lifts on the 11th floor, facing the back of the hotel. The room was clean, well furnished, very spacious, and had fantastic views of Birmingham. The bathroom was massive and well-equipped for disabled people. I’m not sure if all the bathrooms are like this, as I did not request disabled access. It also looked like it served as one of two adjoining rooms as it had a door that led directly to another room. Luckily this door was locked!
Breakfast was plentiful with hot and cold options. I was disappointed that they served scrambled eggs but not fried eggs. I was also surprised that they did not at least offer to make fried eggs on request, given the otherwise good standard of the hotel.
I had problems connecting to the Wi-Fi in my room and when I enquired at reception, they weren't very helpful apart from just telling me to open my internet browser and accept the conditions (this screen did not appear when I tried). The line was also bad when I tried to make phone calls on my mobile but this may have just been on the 11th floor.
I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
