You get what you pay for in this life. So when you pay 25 sheets a night for a twin you know you're not getting Burj Al Arab. However the problems started when we couldn't get into our room due to problems with the card. We were quickly moved to another room and got an immediate radiator in our face... More

Booked into this hotel as the one I normally stay in was full due to an event at the NEC. I booked it prior to looking on Trip Advisor and after reading the reviews I was very tempted to cancel. But being the optimist I am I decided to see for myself how bad or good it was. I checked... More

The two lads on Reception were friendly and very helpful and suggested somewhere nice to eat as the restaurant is currently unavailable. The room was cold with stains on the carpet, marks on the walls, damage on the back of the door. Radiator top bent up. Light hanging off the wall and light over mirror not working. Window didn't shut... More

We booked this hotel last minute and regretabley didn't read the earlier reviews... On arrival the hotel pretty much looked deserted and in the whole of our stay we didn't see one other customer. We went up the maze of stairs where we found our room which definitely hadn't been cleaned. The bathroom was a dated, burgundy coloured suite, there... More

Myself and 5 friends stayed here for a night whilst visiting the German Christmas market in December. We were looking for a budget hotel to say the least but at £60 per double room per night I think we could have done much better. The rooms were spacious but definitely in need of complete renovation, awful decor, the carpets were... More

Recently stayed for one night for a night out in Birmingham. Yes it's shabby and could do with a good refurb , but our room was comfy and clean and bed was surprisingly really comfy! Staff were friendly , hassle free check in and check out. Free parking was a massive bonus (and saving) and only minutes away from broad... More

One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed it, at £50 a room it's not that cheap, close to the station but there's not exactly a regular service into town. Every half an hour on the Saturday and non at all on the Sunday. The rooms smell, the walls are damaged and peeling the shower was powerful but you couldn't... More
