This place is a dive. Reception staff were impolite and unhelpful, I had a pint of beer at the bar one evening and it was watery like it had been diluted down, my room smelt of sick. The shower didn't work properly, the TV's reception kept fading, two of the plug sockets in the room didn't work.
The 'Full English Breakfast' was one cremated '30% pork 70% who knows' sausage with two fried eggs (chef had popped the yolks) with a tomato that looked like it had been fried on a griddle uncleaned for decades, and some value baked beans. Safe to say it wasn't the best.
When issues were raised with reception, the response was 'well we're the best at what we do in Birmingham' repeated several times. No problems solved. It was so bad that I actually checked out a night early to go to a hotel ETAP (the only other hotel available) which at £24 for the night was a 5 star hotel in comparison.
Nightly rate was about £50-60 here, I can't remember. Either way it was £50-£60 too much.
