Just got back from another great Christmas Break at Britannia Birmingham - and we're off for our New Year stay in a few days too. They are actually promoting a last minute offer of 3 nights DBB with entertainment for just £99 per person.
Let me explain a few things for those thinking of using this hotel.....
The TVs are old but the picture is fine for the 10 or so channels available. If you can't manage without 50+ channels for a few days then you should probably stay at home.
The decor in the rooms and corridors is a bit old fashioned and the carpet on some of the stairs is a little worn BUT our room was clean and the towels/linen were sparkly clean.
The food was served Buffet Style - if you are scared that you can't control the serving spoon and might over-indulge then you should of course blame the hotel and complain about the quality blah blah blah. IF you like the option to leave things off your plate which you don't like but pile your plate full of your prefered items then again it gets a huge tick.
We were sat on long tables for our meals and made some great new friends whilst there. Some complained about this seating arrangement but didn't bother to ask if they could have one of the smaller tables available.
The restaurant staff will go out of their way to help you IF YOU ASK THEM. They are not mind-readers and they won't bite just because they may come from a different Country to you.
This hotel is located on New Street; right in the middle of Birminghams shopping centre and 2 minutes (mostly covered) walk from New Street Railway Station - please don't complain that car parking is difficult; just use your brain cells before you plan your journey.
Those who complained over Christmas probably chose not to thank the hotel for the unexpected free bottles (plural not singular) of wine they received at Christmas - maybe their principles stopped them from accepting these free gifts (??). They probably didn't appreciate the free boxes of chocolates they received on Christmas Day either.
Ash and his team in the restaurant worked flat out all over Christmas to ensure everyone had an enjoyable stay. A HUGE thank you to them all.
If you want 5* luxury then please go and pay £150/night to receive it and let those of us wanting a great value break enjoy our time without your moaning and whinging in the background.
Well Done Britannia Birmingham.
