Pub and hotel. Jazzed up inn that was tastefully decorated. Sound defences in windows did try there hardest but its a busy place B'ham at 1 in the morning. Free bottled water is a nice perk but discount food or drinks could make this place a true winner. Staff need more training though. Overall a great stay.

Nice hotel in a great central location. Not for those wanting an early night due to the pub next door being particularly loud until around 1am but wasn't a problem for us.

Very clean room and bathroom. Bottled water provided. Very reasonable price.

Mostly good service other than one guy interrupting the check in process for a personal conversation which was slightly rude.

Only major issue for me was that the pillows felt full of air and squashed down so much that it was like not having a pillow and i woke with a pain in my neck.

Otherwise, a good choice.

By Booking into a Wetherspoon Hotel you wonder what you are going to get, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room at the rear of the hotel was comfortable, and being 2 floors up there was no noise from the often crowded bar downstairs.
The food is good and inexpensive, and a really good selection of real ales.

We stayed here for just one night but were really pleased and will be using this hotel again if we have cause to be in Birmingham. Bed was really comfortable and pillows were fluffy and soft. Particularly liked the shower which was incredibly powerful (very refreshing). For the price and location I don't think we could have asked for anything more.

Room Tip: Room 210 was on the front. No problems with noise etc, except road sweeper which went past around mi...

This hotel without big pretension (forget the luxe and the room service!) is a really good quality price! we booked a familly room for £35 the night!! its in a perfect situation, in the heart of Birmingham, 10 minutes by walk from the sea life and the NIA (National Indoor Arena), the rooms are bigs, you have the essential to do your coffee and tea with some little biscuits. its perfectly clean, and the street is really quiet during the night.

As we said my wife and me, we will plan to come back again to a city break to the same hotel again!

Stayed one night for short break in Birmingham and was a great stay. Location brilliant, 2 minutes from the train station and the Bullring. Room clean and decor modern. Really good value for the price. Friendly staff plus easy to pop to bar for drinks.
