Im currently staying in the corus hotel, Solihull (room 122) booked through laterooms for £70 (should have been £180) with work. All I can say is its not even worth £10 per night. The bathroom looks as if it has never been cleaned with tissue down the toilet and mould in the soap dish. The bath would struggle to fit a midget in in let alone a normal sized person. All the tiles and grouting are filthy with sealant coming away from the whites. The towels are at least clean.
The main room itself fairs a little better, however the carpet and walls are stained and filthy with decor straight from 1980. The bed is at least comfy and the room has a decent sized tv.
I didn't use the pool facilities as if they can't keep a small bathroom clean they've got no hope with a pool and all that it entails.
The receptionist had a stinking attitude and just couldn't be assed with anything.
The only upside is the local (approx 1mile away) restaurant called 'the farm' which serves amazing food.
If you need to stay in Solihull avoid the Corus at all costs, I certainly will from now on. Premierinn may not seem the best but i'd stay in one anytime over this hotel, at least you know they will be clean and hygienic.
