Very cold room which had recently been refurbished, the staff tried to help initially then quickly got bored when the problem continued. I have 20+ people staying here during Jan/Feb every year but next year we will be moving

Hotel itself was faultless. Very clean tidy and staff friendly. Only downside was the 'free wifi available in all areas' , could not get wifi in our rooms, kept getting error messages. We are returning in May so hopefully it'll be sorted.

I had a very confortable stay. The breakfast was superb. Location is an issue if you want to use public transport, I had to use a taxi which was expensive to go to the Ramada in Sutton Coldfield. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed herself thoroughly as well. The staff was very friendly eventhough we were a bunch of hijab's... More

I am very sad to say that based upon a working life spanning 20 years staying away on a very regular basis, this is without question of doubt the worst ever hotel. My room was cold (far too cold to sleep) due to a window casement defect which was obviously known by the management as portable heating additional to the... More

I thought I had booked a Holiday Inn but it is now an independant hotel. I had a very noisy room overlooking the M6 and the worlds slowest WIFI. On checkin I was told that I was put in a "good" room with strong WIFI. This was either a lie, or everyone else had it even worse! The hotel does... More

We stayed here on a quiet Sunday on our way through Birmingham- it 'used' to be a Holiday Inn but any traces of that are long gone. The walls were as thin as the sheets, the mattress old and the atmosphere was zero. We heard a constant alarm bell from the next (vacant) room from 7am and the TV was... More

Stayed in the Castle Bromwich Inn for one night before flying off on holiday from Birmingham Airport. Service was very good, staff were friendly. No frills accomodation, perfect for an early start for the airport. Excellent breakfast.
