If you are looking to stay near Birmingham airport overnight with car parking thrown in this place is fine - good value for a weeks parking and complimentary taxi to and from airport - it's around ten to 15 minutes drive.
It is rather run down and in an eighties time warp -if you stayed for longer than a night you may have to start yourself on a low dose of Prozac or similar as it has a very depressing, souless atmosphere.
We booked a double room but for some reason we were given a 'suite' - dingy sitting room, bathroom, bedroom all smelling of cigarettes which was how I imagine a bail hostel.
We were surpised that the meal in the bar was actually quite good pub grub, our flight was early so we didn't have breakfast.
It's fine for an overnight stopover , booking in and out was efficient, and that's about it - does what it says on the tin.
