After staying one night in Wolverhampton at the Baron Court Hotel (a wonderful quirky hotel) for a Buzzcocks gig, we decided we'd make it two nights and chose this Wetherspoons pub. It's central, has a pub which is relatively cheap and the reviews were pretty good. I booked it, thinking even if it were awful, we were only there one night.
The entrance to hotel is separate to the bar, and it's very art deco - a huge plus point in my opinion. The note at reception directed us to the bar to find the manager and they rang for someone, who came down to greet us cheerfully. We were early and couldnt check in but they happily stored our bags in a locked cupboard behind reception.
We took advantage and had a couple of pints in the bar, which itself was nicely decorated, although very busy (it was school holidays, I recalled), before setting off to wander around Birmingham. Upon our return, we checked in and were on the fifth floor.
The room was a lovely surprise - very nicely decorated, a spacious bathroom with bath AND shower. The only slight disappointment was the shower gel/soap stuck on the wall rather than individual but given the relatively cheap price of the hotel room, understandable. The bed was large and comfortable and there was also a flat screen tv there. Given we were on the fifth floor, there was no noise whatsoever from the pub.
All in all, we had a lovely stay, just a shame it was only the one night actually. I wouldnt hesitate to rebook. 5 minutes from New Street Station too.
