Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This is a lovely hotel with a friendly welcome, lovely clean rooms and good facilities.
The FREE WIFI through the hotel and rooms was so convenient.
The breakfast was plentiful and absolutely fresh and delicious.
I would most definitely stay in another Holiday Inn Express hotel again no question. Highly recommended.
Had their been a swimming pool at this hotel I would have rated it a 5*
It was a really good hotel.

Room Tip: Lots of non-smoking rooms you shouldn't have a problem requesting a good room.

My friend and I were visiting Birmingham from South Wales for a weekend shopping trip and chose this hotel as we wanted somewhere relatively close to the city centre but far enough away that it was quiet. Great location, 2 mins off the M5, close to several nice pubs and an Asda just up the road - we walked there and took about 8 mins - and we always like Holiday Inn Express hotels so we were confident this one would be ok and we were right. The room was lovely, it all looked brand new and spotlessly clean, beds were comfy and good shower which is always a bonus. Plenty of safe parking, staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were fine - what more can you want? Def recommended and would stay again if in the area.

Stayed here for three nights this weekend. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Details of breakfast times, parking was explained to us. Our room was clean and well equipped with air conditioning unit, wi-fi, drinks making facilities, hairdryer, TV, towels, pillows, en-suite, soaps and shower gel, hanging and storage space for clothes and our luggage etc. It felt as though everything you would need as a guest staying here had been considered and was already in situ for our convenience. Our room was serviced daily. All the staff we encountered (reception, housekeeping and restaurant staff) were friendly and attentative; nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience was enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and shall look forward to returning.

Stayed on 11/7/14 and had booked the room in advance so got a great price with free breakfast.

Check in was at 14.00 and arrived at 14.05 to find a very friendly lady on reception who booked me in with no problems. You need to put your car registration into the computer on the front desk as a company called parkingeye record your registration by camera when you entre the carpark and leave. (I have had a run in with this company before when I put a wrong letter down and got a ticket).

The room was nice with a sofa (sofabed if needed). Normal size double bed with a heavy duvet and pillows (some firm) all clean and crisp white. Room was clean and so was the bathroom. The only things that let the room/bathroom down was it only had a shower not a shower in a bath but a lot of hotels are going that way. The shower cubical leaked at the side so when I went to the toilet I stood in a lot of water. Toilet paper is cheap and breaks up so not good for ladies. My room was round the back by the bins and thankfully there was no smell and it was a warm day. I kept turning the Air conditioning off however it kept coming on again which was a little annoying as it got very cold but eventually it did stay off. Overall the room was big enough, clean and very comfortable.

I went for a drink in the bar and was served by a very plesant young lady who was training. As an IHG member I got a card to enable me to get 20% off my drinks when I checked in. ( every little helps). The hotel does not serve evening meals but there is a pub serving food right next door. You can also order takeaway or heat up your own food using the microwave and cuttlery provided for free. The staff put out extra tea, coffee, sugar and milk for you to help yourself to. This makes a massive difference to you stay if you dont want to go out.

Had a good nights sleep but could not find a soft pillow at all. Breakfast was good with all the normal food for continental breakfast, cerial, yogurt, croissants, toast, cheese and fruit juices. You also get tea, coffee and hot chocolate. You can also have scrambled eggs, sausage and baked beans but they run out quickly so you may have to wait like I did for more to come. Very friendly staff in the morning as well.

Overall for £38 it was a great stay and I will happily use this hotel again.

Dear QuadGirls,

First of all, thank you for leaving a review on Tripadvisor which we take on board all feedback.

Regarding the showers, all Holiday Inn Expresses are showers only I'm afraid. We have already sorted the leaking shower out and the Air Conditioning too.

We do serve meals in the weekday, Mon-Thurs but over the weekend we just serve Pizzas and Snacks too. We are sorry, if you couldn't find a soft pillow, our staff would have rectified the problems you had here if we knew about them.

We hope to see you in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Simon Roberts
