The hospitality we were given was excellent.Especially the staff who were serving us in the function room Saturday evening/night. I think one of the ladies was Karen or Caro I can't remember her name. I just want to say thank you.

Couldn't fault the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and rooms were clean and warm. Would definitely visit again. Friends on the same trip had an issue with their room, but this was sorted straight away very professionally.

I managed to get this hotel for half the price due to some New Years deal. Personally I wouldn't have paid anymore than that. The staff didn't overly make us feel welcome upon arrival, the atmosphere between them seemed hostile. It wasn't until waking up during the night I realised we wasn't told about breakfast. Unfortunately the phone in the...

The room was clean and a good enough size. A shame we didn't have a bath but hey ho. Good proximity to town. Parking is far from cheap at £16 for 24 hours. The entrance bar is cool but it wasn't until we were leaving the hotel that we accidentally found the equally cool bar on level 1.

Whilst looking for somewhere to stay whilst in Birmingham for a mandatory 2 day training course, I took the time to peruse the local hotels. At first they all appeared to be typical corporate hotels, cookie cut from the somewhat repetitive and often vaguely depressing format adopted across the rest of their estate. However this time, I threw caution to...

A hotel with a bit more personality and an intriguing quirkiness about it as an extra rather than as an alternative to the general expectations for a hotel in this class. Eating in has more to offer in terms of atmosphere and ambiance than competitors and the food and service was more that acceptable - staff in particular being genuinely...

The atmosphere is great, friendly staff and the bar is quite simply amazing, chillout music in the background, free pool tables and PS4 to amuse...

Second time we've stayed here and again we can't really fault it. Great location, comfy beds and a great price. I've never had the breakfast here as it's not included and to be honest, is a little too on the expensive side, but the bar is great and they do room service meals too.
