I've stayed at this hotel several times (including last night), but have never reviewed it as it's always for work, so have never thought to.
The rooms are spotless, bathrooms pristine and all staff I've ever met have been excellent - I can only remember the names of Sam, Melita and Eduardo, but the ladies on the front desk have also always been efficient and dealt effectively with any queries and unexpected turn of events.
Rooms have everything you'd expect (bizarrely, it was actually the cleanliness of the kettle that prompted me to write this - it looks brand new, but the PAT test stickers show that it's not), mattresses are quite firm - which I find very comfy.
Breakfast has the usual range of hot and cold options - nothing unexpected, but all done well, staff on the ball with coffee and tea.
The lunches we've had have all been buffets - again, plentiful, a good range and helpful and accommodating staff when someone doesn't eat a certain dish. I've eaten in the bar in the evening and all the dishes I've had have been good - veggi-burgers, noodles and fish and chips.
All in all, nothing out of the ordinary, but all is good and done well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for business or if you were staying in Birmingham for leisure - short walk (5-10 min) to shops.
As some have mentioned, the location is in the city centre and as such is surrounded by roads and buildings... but you can't really complain about that!
