We had a large window with a nice outside view. The bathroom is dated but clean and functional. There is a separate shower cubical. There was a wardrobe... More

It was raining and late therefore I just got my head down. The décor is tired and needs an upgrade, There are not enough plug sockets available, this was a... More

The best thing about this place is its location - my room overlooked a garden and trees, yet is close to university, Edgbaston and local amenities. The focus is mainly in groups and there is no dinner at weekends apart from functions - Friday night dinner was only a buffet for this reason too. So, the dinner was rather expensive... More

It is a similar price to some city centre hotels which offer a higher standard of accommodation, but I needed to be at the University first thing so felt happier staying on-site rather than risking public transport. The room I stayed in was in definite need of modernisation (beige bathroom items, beige marble-look-formica etc. you don't need planning permission to... More

At a time when student residents have gone "luxury", this accommodation holds to the traditional University values of poor paintwork weak showers and generally tired presentation. When you can get a well presented Travelodge for £40, this is poor value at nearly twice the price. Positives: location (that's it) - it's on the campus. So if you're here for a... More

Does what it says on the tin. Comfy bed, spacious room for a business stay and all your main essentials in place. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest with sticky marks on the taps. Reception staff seemed passable with all guests, not personal or friendly, just passable. Breakfast staff gave a lovely welcome in the morning and the food was good.

Stayed here recently on an overnight trip to Birmingham. Located a fair distance from city centre- I got the train to University and walked about 15 mins- probably not the safest to do at night alone as a portion is along a poorly lit road. Check in procedure easy and efficient. Room is an ex-dorm, reminds me of college days.... More
