I found this Wetherspoon to be not only very well located, but also the food to be higher quality than the Square Peg. I only had a tortilla as I had a 2-3 hour coach journey ahead of me, but it was served quickly yet piping hot, allowing for me to let it cool down slightly yet still have time...

The single room (103) I stayed in has been renovated since my last visit five years ago although lacking in natural light it is clean and well furnished. It is excellent value for money especially as it is close to transport links, the Bull Ring shopping centre,Grand Central and an excellent variety of restaurants to suit all tastes. My only...

Stayed here on a Saturday night when I was going out in Birmingham with my other half. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. I had trouble opening my door with the key card as it was a bit temperamental, but the girl on reception happily came up to my room with me to sort it out. The room...

I've stayed in this Wetherspoons Hotel in central Birmingham several times before and I remain a fan. Book in advance and it can be very good value and cheaper than the indicative price on this site. You know what you will get with Wetherspoon, reasonable food and well priced quality drinks. The rooms are furnished to an acceptable modern standard....

Receptionists were very friendly and helpful, particularly the one who let me store and take my luggage twice with a big smile. Felt very welcomed. Wi-fi was perfect, hotel room was up to standard, good for business stay as ironing board and iron were provided.

Ideal location for city centre break as only a few minutes walk from New Street Station and The Bullring. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and fresh. My only complaint would be the lighting in the room - great for everything apart from putting make up on. A woman thing I know :-)

We have stayed in quite a few Wetherspoon hotels now, the experience has always been excellent. We found "The Briar Rose" check in and bar staff very friendly and professional. The room large, clean and well appointed. We would definitely stay again

So I stayed here whilst on a course a couple of weeks ago and it was honestly a great stay. I was a fair way from home in a place I didn't know and the staff were great. The room was fresh and the food was fine. They kept apologising for the lift been bust but it doesn't really matter...
