The Team from SSP have stayed at the hotel a number of times, and we generally impressed with everything about the hotel. However, there was a bit of an issue with the breakfasts on Friday morning, all the 'hot' food was cold....it was subsequently remedied quite promptly, but not before we had to make a move to catch the train.........

Great location to visit B'ham city centre. Hotel is quirky and fun. Has a 24hr bar, which is great, a beer whilst checking in! Although 24hr, I didn't hear any noise from the bar during my stay. Will definitely stay here again.

I had a good stay at Pentahotel in Birmingham. The staff were very helpful and the food was awesome (although a tad expensive!) My only problem was that I couldn't turn the heating down in my room so I didn't sleep very well. Other than that it was a really good central place to stay.

Stayed here as an alternative to Hotel Du Vin. Gloomy, dark rooms. In the morning we both had cold showers . Only when we checked out the receptionist told us there was maintenance problems. Why not tell us before? Wasn't very apologetic but reluctantly offered us complimentary parking. When I went to drive out of the car park, they knew...

Friendly and helpful staff. First floor lounge and breakfast area very nice. Excellent breakfast. Good hotel if you need a city centre location and street surprisingly quiet at night. Discovered this when I opened the window because the room was far too hot! Tried to adjust using the controller, but nothing changed. Reception doubling up with the bar was a...

This is such a cool hotel and it has absolute brilliant conference facilities. I have recently used it for the first time as a training venue and it is by far the best service I have ever received whilst conducting training. All the staff were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed at the right time throughout...

Stayed for one night for work. I rather liked it! It's fairly basic but still manages to be stylish and a bit trendy. I think they've made a real effort with the look and it's paid off. The room was lovely and the bed was comfy. Nice shower (although needs a shelf for the shower gel to perch on), big...
