I expected the midland to be a glamourous historical beautiful hotel but I think it's still struggling from when it was a Holiday Inn all those years ago. The rooms were tiny and we couldn't get an external view - only the view of the unexciting internal courtyard. We were told about the impressive stained glass windows on the maisonette floor - which when we found the window it was repaired badly and not grand looking at all. The pictures on the wall try to be full of character - old letter found in one of the rooms years ago - but most are just a little creepy as they include staff birthday cards and other strange items. And not strange in a good way!
The Colony Restaurant had poor breakfast food. The black pudding was burnt to a cinder, the whole restaurant was badly laid out and poorly decorated. Who's idea was it to cover the chandelliers with horrid red lamp shades???! I thought it would be grand and beautiful - it was not.
The other restaurants were impressive although suffering after the smoking ban - they all smell very badly of stale cigar smoke - please clean the carpets!!!
The gym and spa is bizarrely laid out - you have to walk through the cardio machines to get to the reception! How odd - there is so much they could re-arrange to make the most of the space and just seem to miss the point completely!
The key for the room expired just before 12pm by my watch so when we went to grab bags to check out we were locked out. We then trekked down to reception who were quite abrupt with us - not very nice!

We have just spent a lovely night at the Midland.All the staff were helpful and we were given a beautiful Suite!!! no less with a bottle of wine to celebrate our night.It was great to be right in the centre of the city and a treat to have someone else park the car.Definately a night to remember.

If you want to be connected to the internet, this is not the hotel for you. I paid 15 pounds two days in a row for alleged 24 hour access.. each time, it ran out after about 4 -6 hours, during which time i was down/up loading nothing - apparently i had reached my data limit. Highway robbery! My co-workers also had problems staying connected.
Otherwise - the hotel was ok, the facade is gorgeous - but sadly the frustration with the internet is all i will remember.

The hotel proved an elegant stage for a great wedding. Fine rooms, good service, food etc etc. It seems some reviewers have been unimpressed, but this place is very good for a big function. And praise for the concierge staff, who kept an eye on my motor (I'm afraid in these green times, I confess a little shamefully that it is a bit too big for the NCP) while it was left on the yellow lines outside the hotel overnight.
