Was booked into this hotel whilst staying in Birmingham for work. The location is fairly central so, yeah, that's a plus. Sadly the accomodation itself left alot to be desired. Stayed in one of their "Luxury" rooms, blimey, I'd hate to see a standard or executive room. Bathroom was dirty, a big chunk of the bathroom shelf had been ripped...

Good location right in the middle of town just off New Street and close to plenty of nice restaurants. I had a room on the top floor and the water pressure wasn't great for the shower but no complaints otherwise. I would stay there again.

Tuesday is steak night. A large mixed grill and pint of lager for only 9.49. What a bargain! It was well-cooked, although the pieces of meat seemed smaller than usual. The pub is just off the main drag where the shops are situated. The staff were friendly.

Booked for the value, was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality. Stayed for one night- the lovely room was on the top floor, with a big window, tea, coffee and biscuits. Beautiful building. Staff (reception, cleaners and bar) were extremely friendly and helpful. Was worried that it would be noisy because of the bar but it was fine. Great value...
