We were fortunate to have been given a booking here and a voucher for "The French", Simon Rogan's new restaurant here at the Midland. Followed the Sat Nav postcode for the NCP car park behind the hotel and managed to navigate our way down a one way street, watch out! Parking was a bit steep at £18.40 a day and not very convenient with a long flight of steps up to the rear of the hotel. Reception staff very courteous and helpful and said there used to be a reduced rate for residents but this had been stopped.
Room was very comfortable although not very spacious. View was across the tram line to the Premier Inn opposite!
I have left a separate review for the restaurant but would just say that was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
We enjoyed a drink in the lounge beforehand and relaxed listening to the accomplished pianist helping the ambiance.
The hotel website says that only continental breakfast is available, however you will now find that Full English is available in Mr Coopers restaurant at £20 a head but if you order breakfast through room service this is only £15 a head plus a £5 tray charge! We did the latter and the breakfast and service was excellent.
Checkout was simple and quick despite the arrival of numerous conference delegates.
I would certainly stay here again, a valet parking service is available at a charge which may be useful to avoid the stairs from the car park.
So four stars plus to the Midland, one star to NCP!
