Parkview on Hagley

This is most certainly NOT a five star hotel, and the ugly exterior might be off-putting. It was clean, spacious, quiet and quite acceptable. And it had a bath - always a tick in my book.

No in-house restaurant, but the rowdy around the corner downstairs serves quite good food with generous portions.

Room Tip: Try to get one with a view over the park.

I stayed here for 5 nights. It is right by the park and in walking distance to a lot of things. The bed is very comfortable and has a toaster, microwave, kettle, and fridge for use. It has large containers of soap, lotion, shampoo, and conditioner for use along with a very nice hair dryer. The room is nicely decorated and was a perfect stay.

Putting in some fancy controls in the lifts and quality bathroom fittings do not make for a 5 star hotel - i am sorry to say. This is my 2nd night at Parkview on Hagley and most certainly the last. The place appears to be run by one 'mature' lady who delivers your continental breakfast at 8pm, so you can enjoy your stale toast when u wake up. Thats it - 2 slices of stale toast and a glass of OJ. The tiny container of long life milk in the fridge is a bonus thou! because it would be such a hassle to give out some fresh milk for coffee when u check in.
Yes, im getting picky here, my bad for expecting 5 star Hotel when booking this place.

My stay at ther Parkview on Hagley was very enjoyable. The room was huge and very well laid out. It had everything i needed for my two nights stay.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
From the minute I checked in to when I left I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
The room was very clean, the small kitchen was well kitted out if there was one thing I thought was a bit lacking it was a proper wardrobe. One of the larger kitchen cupboards was designated as the wardrobe which was a bit small.
The bathroom was very clean and even had a jacuzzi bath which was lovely! The products in the bathroom were really nice to use too.
I took advantage of the hotels room service from the adjoining restaurant and it was fantastic, huge portions and the chocolate brownie was just devine!
My room was at the front of the hotel at a busy roundabout but the double glazing was brilliant I couldn't hear the traffic at all it was pretty silent. The views over the park were lovely too. Because it was a business trip mid week I didn't get into the city centre but I got the feeling it wasn't too far out and would be within walking distance there seemed to be plenty of little shops and restaurants around the hotel. All in all a lovely little hotel that I would be pleased to use again.
Well worth a visit.

Very nice hotel, but a bit weird you can only get room service from the restaurant below, breakfast is only avaialble via room service if you order before 7pm the night before..we arrived after 7pm so missed out!

TV was on the same wall as the bed, so you couldnt watch it in bed...again..strange.

Noisest heat pump ive ever weve ever experienced....we turned it off in the end, and the road noise started at about 6am.

I've stayed in plenty of hotels all over the world - some of which being 5 star and some. But the little things are always what counts and customer service is key. That's what Parkview has achieved. Friendly and helpful service, and rooms are clean tidy and include all the necessary comforts. Also lloved the views to Hagley Park, particularly as the autumn leaves are starting to turn. Would stay again and recommend to anyone to also.
