I tend to stay in Premier Inn when I work away, they are not spectacular but you know what you are getting every time. When I couldn't find one for a trip away in Birmingham I went for the Ramada as I, mistakenly, believed it would be a step up. I was wrong. Start with the positives; the room decor... More

I was surprised at the quality level of this hotel, given its central location close to the train station (easy walking distance with a rolling case), loads of bars and restaurants, the aquarium. The staff were very pleasant but past the front desk and the Starbucks in the lobby, the hotel did not measure up. The hallway carpets were duct... More

I suppose thats why they get away with the negatives. Positives being it's in the Mailbox which is lovely and central to everything, price for the location is acceptable and they have smoking rooms which are a rarity these days which is nice that a hotel considers smokers should have fun too. Negatives, checked in and was put in the... More

The Ramada name is one I believed to be great. This example is not of that ilk. A tired me arrives at a tired hotel. Door key doesn't work. New key. Helpful staff member Chantelle came to the rescue. I get in. Light in room flashing as the bulb has blown. No wi-fi. Ethernet link to web. A fat lot... More

This hotel was booked for us for a work trip. The hotel was superbly located for our needs, within the Mailbox square, and could not have been more convenient. That aside the hotel felt like it needed a healthy makeover and just looked tired and drab. Everywhere was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The coffee shop for... More

The hotel has an odd reception area, from the street level you would walk past it. On the main level, opposite the MailBox center, there you find the real entrance. The staff were very helpful, on checking in to my room I noted the room was cold and the window/door to the balcony didn't seem to close. I called reception... More

I'd not stayed in a Ramada before but had heard good things about them so was looking forward to my stay. The reception staff were very polite and helpful and sorted my room key issue very quickly (My key card wouldn't open my room door, possibly caused by user error). The room was as I'd expected but the carpets throughout... More
