Stayed here on Monday 26th Of Septemeber 2011,and It was ok.
Few things let the hotel down; the room was extremely dusty, looked like it had been cleaned and nobody had stayed in there for a while. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and both me and my partner had little sleep. The room service we had ordered to the room was cold, yet was a "warm chocolate brownie" and the hot chocolate looked like muddy water and didn't taste a thing like hot chocolate, so god knows what had happened to it.
We booked a queen size room with lake view but were given a double bed and a small view of the lake. We didnt see the need to complain there and then as we were there for only 1 night.
However, the credit to the hotel were the staff, the 2 women who helped us on our stay at reception were lovely, warming and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble!!!
I would recommend this as an over night stay especially if going to NEC, as great location and quick access to Birmingham City Centre, but I wouldnt recommed it for a long stay.
