We stayed here one night when we were in Birmingham to see We will rock you at the Hippodrome. We booked using airmiles which was for one night with breakfast in a standard room, However we decided to upgrade to an executive room for extra £15 cash on arrival. Check in was quick and easy although the young girl checking us in kept getting interrupted by one of the other girls at the desk which we thought was rather rude and unprofessional . We were given room 805 and we soon there using the fast elevator. The room was pretty large with a huge very comfortable bed a 40” flat screen TV with freeview and a limited amount of pay movies. It also had a very nice work station so if you are staying on business it would have everything you need. There was the usual tea and coffee making bits and pieces. We had robes and slippers and the bathroom had a nice selection of toiletries also dove liquid soap and lux shower gel dispenser on the wall. The room was showing some slight signs of wear but on the whole was of a good clean standard. In the morning we opted for breakfast in our room which only cost us an extra £3.50 for tray charge, it was hot and fresh and we both enjoyed it. The girl checking us out was the same girl that kept interrupting our check in girl the day before and she couldn’t have been less interested if she tried , she didn’t offer a good morning or a was your stay ok in fact all she could mutter was that’s £3.50 tray charge. I paid and left without the offer of a smile or safe journey or anything really, I did notice she had a book open at the desk and maybe I interrupted her reading. It’s a shame after such a nice stay that’s our parting memory. I would not let her put me off though and we would stay here again.
