Stayed at this brand new holiday inn express ( opened this week) for 1 night. Excellent opening rate of £ 49 B&B for 3 of us which included £10 for parking overnight in the adjacent NCP car park.
Adjacent car park not easy to navigate, quite a walk with case through the car park. Lobby very attractive and welcoming. Staff pleasant and considering it was only day 3 very efficient. I had requested a higher floor room as the hotel is next to a hospital and in the centre of town. Room allocated was on the top floor(19). Very quiet apart from two guests arguing in the corridor at midnight which wasn't the hotel's fault.
Room clean, could still smell the paint! Sofa bed made up ready, tea and coffee supplied tv with clock hair dryer next to full length mirror in the bedroom, choice of firmness of pillows, all ideal for a short stopover.
Bathroom small but had large shower with shelves for toiletries. Basic shower gel/ hand soap in wall dispensers. As our room was booked for 3 people I would have liked an extra bath towel, but for one night it didn't matter too much.
Only fault would be that the mattress didn't seem good quality, the weight of one occupant of the bed meant the other rolled into the middle of the bed. As I weigh 8 stone and my daughter 6 stone we just about managed ok, but had I been sharing with my husband I would have been catapulted out the bed every time he turned over!
Breakfast excellent good choice of pastries, cereals, toast, yogurts and fruit. Hot items included baked beans, scrambled eggs and sausage. Very good value for money particularly bearing in mind 4 of us could have stayed for the same price, making it just over £12 each. My 15 year old son probably has full value on breakfast alone!
Mattress issue aside I would recommend the hotel and return if a similar rate was available. Birmingham does have a good choice in this price range so if the price increased much more I would look elsewhere.
