First, a warning. There are two sections in this hotel. The older section has the cheaper "classic and some "standard" rooms. Avoid them. The newer section has the "superior" rooms. These are spacious, comfortable and quite. Fortunately I was warned about the former from a contact at Aston Uni and was able to wrangle an upgrade on arrival.
Overall, a good hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, comfortable room with strong, hot shower, freeview TV, free, fast internet, good hearty breakfast. Only negative was the lack of aircon which in muggy Birmingham should have been an essential feature.
