I am currently sitting in my hotel room and feel compelled to write this review. Everything about the stay has been excellent - the lunch food (a buffet) was varied and well-cooked, the service professional and friendly, all the staff efficient, polite and helpful; the coffee and snacks provided for conference delegates plentiful and tasty. The room is compact but...

I did this and returned to find she was busy but had actioned my registration. I watched her handle a 15 minute telephone request and...

I stayed here for one night. The hotel is about 25 minutes' walk from Birmingham New Street Station. Arriving at the hotel is a bit confusing, as even though there are street signs directing you toward it, the building itself is simply labelled "Aston Business School" - it's not at all obvious where the hotel reception is. I was greeted...

I booked a stay at the hotel based on complimentary TripAdvisor ratings; reality was decent but not inspiring, so I would want to adjust others' expectations. Obviously, this is not a regular hotel, but a mini-hotel of a university, located in the university's business-school building. The location is convenient, and the surroundings are unobjectionable, in a contemporary-state-funded-architecture way. The advertised...
