Stayed here for T20 final 2014. Before I start the room was a bargain, £48 for a double, plus there was free onsite parking, which is a big bonus. The staff seemed very polite and helpful. The room was very old and tired looking and smelt damp/fusty. The bed was lumpy and very uncomfortable. I doubt I will go back,... More

You pay for what you get and this was a good deal for £40 a night including breakfast. The hotel is worn and needs an injection of TLC but the bed was comfy, sheets clean, bathroom clean with a good shower and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was a buffet and adequate to set you up for the day.... More

Just home in Ireland following a trip to Birmingham where we stayed at the Cobden Hotel. We were greeted by very pleasant reception staff who allocated our rooms efficiently. We thought that we would never reach the rooms as we seemed to be walking forever...up firstly on a lift to 2nd floor and then down corridors, down ramps, and eventually... More

Firstly I attended a wedding so cannot comment on bedroom facilities. Found the hotel quite easily which can not be said for some taxi services- maybe due to the name change! First impressions very clean and well presented, no signage though for where the wedding reception was being held. Met my friend who was looking to buy a coffee for... More

Stayed here for one night in a family room. The room was exactly as required, two single beds and one double. I can not fault the room and price. Breakfast would have probably been better if it was not self service from bain maries. and it would have been nice to have a pot for the tea rather than keep... More

Friendly staff but the whole place felt run down and in need of a deep clean. Lovely buffet breakfast which was well cooked but left to go cold! The pool was was like a hot bath and again the whole area had a run down feel, mop buckets left in thoroughfares etc. Hopefully the change of name means new people... More
