Part of the Britannia Hotel chain, this hotel about upholds the standard of the chain.
I have to agree with the comments made so far - do not book this hotel for anything other than a one night in/out stay if you are flying from Birmingham airport.
Myself and partner stayed prior to our hoiliday. The outside of the hotel dosn't look too bad in the dark, however when you see it during the day everything becomes clear.
Firstly, the pro's - it is easy to get to, it is very cheap and they have a big car park and our car was still there on return.
The con's - formerly a Forte property and has not been touched since. It needs around £1 million or more spending to bring it into the 90's never mind 2006. Beds are uncomfortable, rooms not really clean and freezing cold.
The bar is like a working mens club (bright lights and net curtains) you expect the bingo tickets to go on sale at any time - if only, that would provide some entertainment at least. Got so fed up asked reception where the nearest pub was (10 minutes walk was more like 20) -however The Elms in Allesley village is lovely. Did not dare eat in the hotel restaurant.
At check out the night porter was not impressed that I had rang the bell and woke him up to hand in the key - apparently you do not have to check out, just drop the key in the box,
Excellent taxi service to the airport however.
In short, if you only need somewhere to stay overnight before flying and are not willing to pay for the Crowne Plaza or Hilton (or even the Quality) then choose this hotel as a last resort.
