We stayed at the Strathallan Birmingham City (bit of stretch,that description!) hotel on a Friday night, after a day in the city and prior to visiting the NEC the next day. It was convenient for both - 10 minutes out of the city, 20 minutes off the heavy traffic route to the NEC.
Having stayed in 5-star hotels aound the world who haven't a clue, the following list gets them 5 stars from me:
Everything clean and not worn down in a decently-sized room; comfortable bed good linens, with additional pillows, etc.; large flat screen TV; table and chairs; plenty of hot water in a nice bathroom; plenty of hangers in a wardrobe with a light!; plenty of storage; quiet (7th floor) room, despite overlooking the road; opening windows; adjustable radiators; reasonable cooked breakfast in a nice lobby area restaurant; free, good-quality and easily accessible wi-fi (hang your heads in shame, Hilton, Starwood; IHG, etc. etc.); free and easy car parking. Get the picture?
Add to that pleasant, efficient and attentive staff and our ridiculously reasonable packaged deal that included a Murder Mystery Dinner (fun but overlong), we had no hesitation in joining their loyalty scheme and will seek them out when we want to stay somewhere they have a place. Well done, Menzies!
