I remembered staying here before only when I was walking up to the hotel. It's located on New Street, just around the corner from Birmingham Intl train station, so the location is great. Check-in was quick and they've got free wi-fi in the lobby. The room was OK and fairly clean, but in general, I think the hotel needs some refurbishment. I took up their offer to eat as much as I liked for GBP 9.95. The meal was supposed to include a complimentary glass of table wine. I didn't ask for it because I didn't fancy it, but I still expected them to offer it to me. Well, they didn't. It was self-service and the plate I took first was dirty, the food looked really stale, especially the green salad and cakes. So I had some fish and chips, which was the only thing that evening that looked good enough to eat. It tasted OK, but the whole experience was a complete disappointment. No wonder the restaurant was empty. Next evening I walked up the street to an Italian restaurant for a pizza - which wasn't perfect, but much better than the food in the hotel. I may stay there again if I get a good price for the room, but I am definitely not eating dinner there again.
