Stayed here before an early morning flight from Birmingham Airport. Booked a Dinner, bed, and breakfast rate at a reasonable rate. The price also included transport to the airport, which was excellent for the price.
Firstly I would like to add all the staff I encountered were extremely helpful and polite, this included the staff on reception, in the restaurant, and the shuttle bus driver.
However the rooms were a let down. I did book a standard room, but did not receive an upgrade for being a platinum membership of their Priority Club membership.
The first room I checked into was in the basement and when I walked in, it was extremely cold and smelt really badly of mould. I then went back to reception and asked for another room, the receptionist was helpful and moved me to the 1st floor. The second room was just as cold but didn't smell. The room itself had its usual amenities, but nothing amazing. The bed itself was comfy but the duvet was small and thin, so didn't provide much protection from the freezing temperature!! They did have a portable heater which I plugged in, but took ages for it to warm up the room! The bathroom did have a slight smell of mould. Also the hotel must have an issue with its drains because the water in the sink took ages to drain.
A three course dinner was included in the price and was very good value.
Due to the early morning flight, I wasn't able to to have breakfast in the restaurant, but was able to order a breakfast tray at a specified time, which arrived on time!!
Check out was quick and the shuttle bus left on time at 5am to get me to the airport within 10 minutes!!
