It ss more modern and has much better resterant. The rooms are quite spacios and there is a bath in the bathrom. You can have a meal at the resterant... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed for one night; having read some of the negative reviews. The room was clean and good quality. Certainly not in need of updating as some of the reviews mentioned. Staff were friendly, unusually for a hotel chain they actually made the effort to smile and say good morning! Breakfast is a buffet and... More

I recently traveled with a group of friends to birmingham and chose the Thistle on price alone (we got a very cheap advanced Price). Our rooms were immaculate, staff were very friendly and very helpful in providing advice for the surrounding area. Would definately stay here again.

Dear Ryan Thank you for your feedback. I would appreciate it if you could call me direct through the hotel to discuss your feedback in detail as I do not have any details that match our records. Our guests receive a 25% discount at the NCP next door so the price for 24 hours parking is £16, again it would... More
