We stayed there on valentines night - we did get it cheap £99 for the night. I have stayed in other HdV's in Bristol and Brighton and they were fantastic! This one was mediocre.
The building itself was beautiful just like all the others - check in was easy and efficient.
The rooms were comfortable but very small and didn't have that "something different" that adds to the experience like other HdV's - just like any other hotel room, this we found very disappointing.
We stayed there with another couple (my partners business partner as they had meetings in Birmingham that week) and couldn't get a table unti 945pm. So we drank in the bar which was beautiful. A couple of the bar staff were a little rude but a couple of staff made up for their colleagues lack of customer service.
When we got to our table the restaurant was empty - so I think we may have been able to go through earlier and we did let them know 2 hours before that we would wait in the bar.
The valentines menu was £45 per head and the food was mediocre - one of the dishes we had to send back as it wasn't cooked properly - however the staff were friendly and reasonable.
Between 5 -530am the fire alarm went off so all residents went outside - it was chaos! No communication was given from the staff so we didnt know if we could go back in or if there was actually a fire. Myself and my partner eventually went back in to the lobby, all other residents followed and started to go back to their rooms. We asked if there was a member of staff around who could let us know whether it was safe as we were told they were still checking all other residents streamed past him and nobody was stopped!! Good job there wasnt a fire!
I would definitely stay in a HdV again but definitely not this one!!!
