In terms of my employment I regularly stay in hotels up and down the UK, week in week out. My first impressions is from the outside the hotel appeared welcoming and is well sign posted from Hagley Road. But my impressions soon dwindled. Upon arriving there was no one at reception. Ironically there is a buzzer on the Reception desk... More

I stayed over night and ran a one day training event there. The staff were all friendly, helpful and very efficient. They had done everything I'd asked for the training event without chasing and had double checked it themselves. They took trouble over handling our dietary restrictions for lunch so that all those attending enjoyed a nice lunch and which... More

Mouldy wallpaper peeling, heating broken so they put a free standing "Argos" type heater in the room, no bath, noisy and draughty windows (had to see if it was even double glazing!) and main room lights were fluorescent tubes behind a plywood plinth with screw holes showing, a badly cracked sink and a blocked shower tray that overflowed onto the...

Such was the disappointment on arrival at the Cobden hotel, it's tired and dated front matches the appalling room design and colour scheme... I would suggest looking at the real photos on the reviews from actual people than the photo shopped model pictures on their website. So then on arrival, I was charged £80 for a double room that was... More

Me and a friend were in Birmingham for 2 nights. We were looking for somewhere cheap and not too far from the centre. We had a long and stressful day which ended with an extremely rude taxi driver on our way to the hotel. As soon as we arrived Sam on the front desk was SO lovely - she went... More

It is clear on arrival that this hotel os undergoing a change of management so it is only fair to judge the quality with this in mjnd. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The foyer is a clearly a work in progress but perfectly functional. The room we stayed in had not been renovated but was clean and comfortable.... More
