Welcome and staff are very friendly and helpful. Food i thought was bang on the money. Relatively cheap for a business orientated hotel. Its clean, relatively new and just 5 minutes away from Birmingham New Street.
I attended the hotel on business, 2 x days of high pressured meetings. I needed to perform and be to be fresh. Despite arriving late 11pm, i was able to order a pizza which hit the spot.
Sleeping and feeling fresh was my problem. I found the walls thin. With this i could hear most things from the person next door and just the way it goes, someone who stayed up late. The following evening i was kept awake my a group of hotel guests drunk, moving up and down the corridor around 12 and again 1am. Disrupted sleep. I put this down in part down to possible bad luck or given 2 disrupted nights on the trot, travellers who are either not business orientated or are hear to soak up the nightlife. For me, the lack of sleep impacted on performance, i guess it depends on whether you need value or quality.
On waking, after disruption, the water was cool or luke warm. Having questioned at reception, this would seem to be down to booking a disabled room. Our company books through a third agent and apparently they book the disabled rooms as they are slightly cheaper than the standard room. This simply means that they pocket an extra profit. This is partly for me to challenge back with our third party but if youre looking for a hot shower, make sure youve not booked into a disabled room.
The jury is out for me. 2 x nights on business equated to 4 hours sleep all in all. Whether its the fault of the hotel im not 100% sure but as a result, its just not quite there.
