Rather tired hotel in need of refurb typical of the many medium sized hotels along Hagley Road. We used it for a conference so I did not stay over night. Parking good and has small lawns so can sit outside. Food very average. Decor dated and worn in parts. Functional hotel does it job but not luxurious or romantic. I... More

We booked 1 night at the Cobden for a weekend visit to Birmingham. The cost was 60.00 through booking.com. The previous reviews were mixed but I booked any way. The hotel is OK but the rooms need attention. Finishing touches are lacking. It does look tired in parts. The bed was uncomfortable and an electrical socket didn't work. But what... More

We booked this hotel because it was good value and had a swimming pool. It turned out to be a great choice. It has a pool, sauna, gym, steam room. All very good, even though not quite as 'posh' as some the bigger hotels. It's also very spacious and suitable for business or leisure stays. Good parking and close by... More

Dirty stinking hole, taps not working, toilet not flushing, front of drawers off, holes in door, no control to use tv, splintered bath, shocking service, dirty crockery. For £50 a night I expect more. On one night I even thought I'd pay for wifi - they said they'd bring IT up, it never arrived. You can hear banging from 5am,... More

This hotel would have been perfect for groups of young people looking for somewhere to party. However, be warned that the rooms are in serious need of renovation and do not expect to have any sleep on friday/saturday nights with continuous groups of drunk hens and boys returning from nights out and drinking in the corridors.

Stayed here for a night out and it was not bad at all! Rooms are nice enough, clean and tidy. Bathroom was clean. Slept well, was not too loud. Staff were polite and helpful, checking in and out was quick.

Let me firstly begin by saying that I don't like leaving negative reviews before I give the hotel a chance to rectify their mistakes. However, having emailed twice on the 25th March 2015 and received no reply I shall now post my review. The hotel itself is in a good location - it is close to the centre, has a... More
