Dear 647benr, Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback on your stay. Our prices are set in line with similar properties in the area and can change depending on a number of factors including how busy the city is, events in the area etc. On your chosen stay dates, Birmingham was extremely busy due to a conference at the NEC, located opposite our hotel. We regret that you feel our prices weren’t in line with what you would’ve anticipated. We’re sorry that you felt disrupted by other guests coming in and out of their rooms. Our friendly team are on hand 24/7 to make sure our guests have an enjoyable stay and would be more than happy to resolve any issues Regards Fiona F
