Reviewed December 5, 2010

All these reviews are actually quite generous - this was one of the nastiest places I have every stayed at. Months, if not years, of dirt and dust were spread over half-broken 1970s furniture, and the bathroom was spattered with toothpaste stains and a hank of hair. There was no hot water the first two nights and cracks in the ceiling. The smell of dust and old food was everywhere. The staff accused me of lying when I objected to the standard of cleanliness, and said they had gone into my room and seen my " clothes and underwear" lying on the bed which I found inappropriate and disturbing - why were they looking at my underwear?

Avoid this place like the plague - sleep in a cardboard box under a bridge first!

What ever you do, do not under any circumstances book a room in this place. We had booked and paid in advance for 2 nights stay. When we arrived the door was locked and when you rang the number it went to answer phone. After banging on the door for about 15 minutes one of the guests let us in and said he had the same trouble getting in. There was a mobile phone number of the owner at reception so rang that number only for that to go to answerphone. Left a message saying we were in reception and to ring back as we were tired and wanted to gain entry to our room. About 10 minutes later the owner turned up in his fancy car with personalised number plate demanding to know how we had got in. We asked for him to let us into the room we had already paid for and denied ever having taken a booking. He is out to just rip you off so be warned and never book into this dreadful run down smelly building

Horrible experience. Had booked 4 nights there but had to leave after 2. Never saw anyone at reception, the rooms smelt of years of dirt and body odour, and I didn't see another soul for my whole stay there. The advertised bar was closed.

Never again!

I feel a bit bad complaining as it is cheap for a hotel a short bus ride from the centre of Birmingham, but there really isn't much to say for it. Its like somebody converted their house to a B&B 40 years ago and not a thing has been changed since. Room was fine, just very basic and like everywhere had suffered from wear and tear.
Ok if you're not spending much time there basically.

Very basic. The rooms were clean, but the staff otherwise seem largely uninterested in their hotel, to the point of appearing surprised when you ring the doorbell. A 2003 desk calendar wrapped in dirty plastic forms part of the check-in desk. The decor is pretty hilarious 1970s--four poster beds, carpeted bathrooms. It's in a residential area.
