Booked into this hotel as i had an early morning flight from birmingham airport. The price for an executive room was very reasonable and i was looking forward to the stay. upon entering the hotel the surroundings are what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. very nice looking restauarnt, Apple computers in the lobby for use(nice touch), however i was greeted on check in by a rather unfriendly looking fella called Piotr.the term "service with a smile" was definitly lost on this guy as he tapped furiously on his key board after asking "name". I think in total he spoke 4 words to me "name" and "enjoy your stay". not the warm welcome i was expecting.
The room itself was nice. however they have the toilet and bathroom facilies in separate rooms. I dont know about other people but i found it annoying having to go another room to wash my hands after using the toilet. TV is bog standard with bog standard channels available.There was plenty of bottled water in the room which was great as many hotels ive stayed in have overlooked this minor detail. there was also a nespresso machine which was a nice touch.
The bed is great for people who like really soft mattresses, which i dont. that coupled with a musty smell of someone elses head on the pillows ensured a restless night for me.
Overall, if your looking for decent quality at a reasonable price before your early morning flight i would recommend this hotel.(provided you can suffer a soft mattress), however i would not stay more than one night in this hotel and dont expect a warm welcome from Piotr on reception.
