The only thing that lets this hotel down is the breakfast, which is a shame, because the rest of the hotel is fine. Okay, it’s not at the top end of the market, but Holiday Inn Express does not pretend to be at the top end of the market anyway. But breakfast is just appalling. The hot section comprises of...

I can't believe we stayed in the same hotel as some of the reviewers on this site. For the price we paid it has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed in. To start with it has a large free car park, our room was larger than most, comfortable beds with crisp white sheets and choice of...

I stayed here last night with 5 colleagues . Things I like the car park is free , the rooms are spacious , the bathrooms are bigger than usual . The hotel is opposite star city so lots to do at night to walk to in 2 min. The only problem the road is quite noisy in the morning from...

We enjoyed this Hotel, the room was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed on a Friday night and the Hotel was quiet. The breakfast was much better than we expected, fresh and appetising.

Reasonably priced hotel with clean spacious room and very good service. The hotel is 5 mins away by car to Aston Train Station. The room was quite clean the imply issue was getting the TV to work and the chair available was somewhat broken.

Stayed for three night whilst at a conference in Birmingham. Not much to fault with the hotel and service was fine. Only downside is that is a long way from the city centre and there is no public transport so it's a £15 taxi ride each way.

We searched and searched for a downside for this hotel and the only thing we could come up with is the tv could maybe be a bit bigger for the huge size of the room we stayed in. The staff are amazing, all areas we saw within and outside the hotel are spotless, breakfast was lovely with hot and cold...

It was a big mistake to choose this place to spend two nights. First impression from the reception staff itself is poor. They says that the lift is out of order. But when I says that I'm with kids and heavy bags the lift became operative. Enjoy the Half English breakfast , luckily they had cornflakes so you wouldn't go...
