“Much better than anticipated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Immediately after booking I was regretting it. I mean, at £24 for a single room with bathroom you fear the worst. However overall I was pleasantly surprised. Check-in was not particularly friendly (it was probably night staff but that's no excuse) and with two huge signs, one saying there was a £2 credit card supplement and the other with a vaguely Stalinist edict that you can't bring in any food or drink. I thought that sort of stuff went out with Blackpool landladies. Presumably you can't bring in cannabis either, but that obviously didn't stop someone whose room I passed. However otherwise I have few complaints. The morning staff were much better.
In many hotels the pleasantly quiet single room without a view would have contained a double bed. It was big enough, and the bathroom was nicely fitted and clean with a large bath which was very welcome after a hot day. Sheets were clean, and I prefer a light carpet which shows a few inevitable small stains to a dark one which could conceal who knows what.
I carry my own WiFi so can't comment on that, but I have to say the ancient TV with only 5 working channels was something of a throwback. Even tiny guest houses have cheap flat screen TV's or at least a Freeview box these days. Fortunately I was too tired to care.
I didn't eat there. Breakfast costs only £5 if you book the night before, but there is a Wetherspoons across the road where a full English will set you back only £3.50 including decent coffee if you don't mind the rather sad sight of ageing men drinking pints of beer at 7am.
I suppose the hotel is looking a bit faded, but not excessively so, and it has quite an impressive exterior. I work for myself and don't have the luxury of charging other people expenses, so If I need to stay somewhere near Birmingham again, I will check if there is a reasonably priced room available here.

Room Tip: Parking costs £5 per day in the station car park if you give your ticket to Reception, but if you do...

Very useful stop off point. Helpful staff and nice room considering the price. Handy for station and far better than staying in Birmingham. Good pubs near by. Clean and unique. Not a plastic hotel the history is there.

Room Tip: Ask for a rooms in the south side are quieter.

Clean room but very basic.
Small rooms with no internet access in the rooms, only in the lobby areas, then when in the lobby area internet kept cutting out.
Hotel very good location surrounded by bars and restaurants.
After reading the room information about the hotel..i noticed check out was 12pm Mon-Fri...only for my room to be called at 11.30 to say check out was 11am. Not good communication at all. Rude reception staff on this occasion!

Room Tip: Dont have a single room...tiny!

having read the reviews before arriving we expected the worst. However, the room was perfectly servicable, despite the rattling lift up to it..

We opted to eat elsewhere, and after speaking to fellow travellers this morning made the right decision. Highly recommend the indian buffet on queen st (johnny spice) and theres a nandos and chinese there too.

Room was airless and hot, but it is the hottest weekend of the year.. Breakfast was acceptable, not the best but not the worst..

Shabby hotel and dated decor but then it is cheap. My bed linen was clean and there were 2 clean towels but the rest of the room was dirty — the bin hadn't been emptied, tea making tray filthy, bathroom not cleaned especially the toilet, carpet dirty, bits of rubbish around. I didn't ask to move as the staff were busy having an argument with some poor guy who'd booked a month ago but they said didn't have a room. Also I have stayed before and know that most of the rooms are very noisy, either facing the street (sirens, pub noise, traffic) or the back road (linen truck at 4am, extremely noisy) so I thought, well at least the bed's clean and I will be able to sleep, which I did apart from the clanging pipes early in the morning. If you must stay here ask for a room facing into the middle not the streets. Don't bother with the yukky food — there's a Wetherspoons across the road. I would say do yourself a favour, pay a tenner or so extra and go elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the middle of the hotel - the ones looking out to the streets are really noisy...

Booked this hotel for one night and one reason only and that was my daughter's university graduation in the auditorium next door. Room decor is basic, bit old but for one night its OK.

WiF-Fi is rubbish, very weak signals in the rooms. Not much else to say about this hotel.

after reading reviews about this hotel prior to my trip, i was very worried about going to this hotel, but as soon as we arrived we were greeted at the entrance by staff, asked if we would like our two twin rooms closer together, as they realised we were a family booked in.The rooms were dated but clean, clean sheets and nice clean towels, toiletries in room for use.The food was just ok, but they id make other food for the kids, which was very kind of them.Didn't get much sleep as the room overlooked the front of the hotel where there were groups shouting and fighting late at night, but that wasn't the hotels fault. The staff were lovely and i couldn't complain about anything. pleasant stay
