“cool experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

A lovely hotel with brilliiant staffs dishing out sweet services. My experience is whaoo! The price is relatively affordable, the hotel location makes moving around tyhe town easy and pleasureable. Although i did have a part in the breakfast buffet due to the choice of food available the price is okay.
The service could have been too good for me if the beddings are changed daily, because throughout my stay in the hotel (26th- 28th) only one bedding was given to me and that is not too good.

me and 8 friends just got back from my hen night stayed at this hotel, found the staff very helpfull and friendly, the room as alot nicer than what i expected good size and clean, we had 9 people in 1 room having drinks b4 we went out, shower cubicle leads straight into room but glass is tinted so cant see through.
we did have problems with tvs ours didnt work my friend had no tv just a bracket but we didnt go to watch tv.
was a little dissapointed with the location i read it was in walking distance to pubs clubs, it is about a 20 min walk if you no your way around, dont walk if u dont u will get lost the hotel is located a bit out the way ov the main streets, think was 6 quid in taxi.
this is a great place for people on a budget on stag or hen doos or just visiting for a few days, cant comment on food as didnt eat there, we paid 18 quid or the room for 1 night s got a bargain would reccommend this hotel and would go back again and would pay the normal full price.

Room Tip: we had 3 rooms on floor 3 which were better than floor 1 where other friends stayed.

Although i found the etap hotel very minimalistic, and didn't like that there wasn't an actual bathroom, i found the hotel to be fine for what i was looking for. I just needed somewhere clean and simple to stay for one night. I would choose premier inn or travellodge over the etap if my purpose was for leisure or a longer stay, but it was suitable for my business trip. i have recommened the hotel to a friend who is planning a night out in birmingham as it is in a good location and good value.

We knew from the price it would be basic but didn't expect to have to pay extra for a kettle & teabags! Not enough towels (2 supplied for triple occupancy room). No bathmat, even though floor outside shower is hard & slip hazard. Toilet door difficult for child to open. Pillows small & thin.
