1/ Good convenient location for Birmingham / NEC
2/ Free WiFi and parking
1/ Room dirty, the floor hadn't been hoovered - really dissapointing!! Especially after the first room we got allocated stunk of cigarettes so had to get moved.
2/ Room was far too hot, no climate controls, I ended up sleeping on the window sill for the first time in my life.
3/ Booked a double room yet it was two single beds pushed together with the annoying gap down the middle.
4/ No bedside table so everything had to go on the floor
5/ Breakfast; served 8 - 11, went down at 10.30, got the dregs left in the coffee jar, a bowl of cereal, toast and was told there was no croissants left. At 10.45 i asked if another coffee was going to be put on to which i was told no, its too late and breakfast had stopped being served. A few people had gone to the coffee jar to find it empty, how hard is it to put a simple coffee on to keep guests happy!?
Be all and end all - i will not use this hotel again. It has the potential to be really good, with what looked like a modern onsite gym, but unfortunately, they lacked the bare basics!!!
