Very enjoyable stay overall (2 days for business) Very friendly staff - you just need to avoid the rooms with inter connection as you can hear people watching TV. Great breakfast with nice coffee. The gym is very small but will do the job for a business trip.

Stayed here recently on business. Hotel centrally placed and a great price. No reception on arrival which was a bit confusing but when I found out check in was the bar. The process was fine. My room was nicely done and spacious but the blocked sink and light switch hanging of the wall didn't impress. I did try and report...

A very quirky but modern hotel, some very good features and friendly staff. The rooms are on the slightly small side but there's a lot of nice features packed into them, slightly dissapointed 'Let's go to prison' the popular 2006 movie didn't work on the T.V but everything else was spot on, even got a top view.

Lovely hotel in a perfect location. Loved the free pool table & pin ball machine and the fact that starbucks was served in reception. All staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The beer was great too

The hotel was nice and the staff wee pleasant and attentive however the bed wasn't that comfortable and it was quite noisy in the night due to drunk people outside and cars. But this aside overall it was a pleasant stay

Overall very good. Friendly staff, quiet rooms and facility to watch movies include in charge. There was a full breakfast which I don't usually have and the evening meal was good. I would use this again.

Stayed one night as we went to see Micky Flanagan at the Barclaycard Arena. Walked from Birmingham New Street and it is a short enough walk if we knew how to read the map correctly! A lovely hotel in a shabby area to be honest but the friendly staff, great bar and 1st floor area and the beds made up...

Awful internet connection. Small choice and only snacks to eat at restaurant. Bad smell of feet in the room. You can hear your neighbours since wall are very thin. Great breakfast. Personnel great and warm. High price for what you expect.

This was my first visit to this hotel group and i was very impressed, after an initial confusion of whether or not i had walked in the right door we were welcomed by a very helpful receptionist. She explained all the facilities (of which there are many) breakfast times and locations and even recommended places to visit. I was surprised...

Room is modern, only downfall I would say is room too small not enough space but apart from that good place. Staff are quite friendly and our bedroom door was a bit faulty. Hotel is close to bullring which is great if your a visiting tourist who wants to see what brom has to offer.
