We booked a night here for no better reason than we'd enjoyed a night in the Novatel in St Malo last summer, and thought it would probably be OK. One of the good, or bad things, about chain hotels (depending on your view) is that they're usually consistent. This proved true down to the smallest detail, as we discovered with the room layout in Birmingham. If you suffer from sleepwalking, the Novatel is a safe place to be!
We had a superior room and we were delighted to find both a kettle and Nespresso machine. My son had been concerned that it might be a bit noisy, but our room fronted on to a quiet side street and I slept until 9.30am which (as my partner will testify is unprecedented).
Finding the Hotel was easy on sat-nav, although if you're driving East along Hagley Road, do remember to take the underpass which saves negotiating a horrendous roundabout. We had no trouble parking, and - to be honest - £14.00 is about average for 24 hours in any city centre; and this was secure parking right under the hotel.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and we had a couple of drinks in the bar after our evening out. Breakfast was extremely good and, since we'd paid extra for a late checkout, we were under no pressure and stayed until late afternoon.
The location, on Broad Street couldn't be more central. We really enjoyed our stay and will undoubtedly stay again.
