The amenities are efficient and comfortable. Good buffet breakfast with excellent vegetarian and gluten free options, although the coffee could be stronger. All staff were outstanding - helpful, friendly and gracious. They would fit well in a 5* hotel. Due to their attitude, a functional work trip was both very easy and a pleasure. Thank you - I'll certainly be... More

I stayed here for one night on business. The accommodation was adequate and ok for a night or two. The breakfast was certainly the best part of the stay – really tasty food, plenty of choice and very friendly staff. This was in sharp contrast to the reception staff who were completely disengaged when I arrived the day before. A... More

I work at the University of Birmingham and have stayed at this hotel a few times before when I had a lot of work to get done. It is a nice short walk from the campus. The main building (Lucas) is nice and the outbuildings are okay- although I am pretty sure they were dorm rooms before. I have not... More

The conference park reception is easily reached by all forms of transport with only a short walk to one of the many accommodation buildings. The venue is perfect for visiting the University given the highly congested roads if travelling by car at peak times. Car parking at the Conference Park is free for the duration of the stay which is... More

I have stayed here a number of times now. It is perfectly located for visiting the university, being virtually on campus, between the halls of residence and the campus itself. The rooms are in a few buildings all very close to one another. The rooms are clean, warm and comfortable, and bathrooms fine. This is not 5 star accommodation, but... More

My daughter is at Birmingham Uni and lives in Selly Oak. This venue is ideal when we go down to see her. Nice clean accommodation and a good hearty breakfast at a very reasonable price. Would recommend to anyone on a short visit to see loved ones.

Perfect for a one night stay. Stayed here on business and was perfectly functionable. It's quite far out of the city centre and it does kind of feel like student halls, a little shabby but perfectly comfortable. The food offering is very reasonable priced, tasty but nothing overly special. The bar area is small and cosy. Would stay again but... More

Stayed for one night in December, it was clean, warm and quiet, it's nothing fancy but it's also cheap, for a one night stay it was great. Clean bathroom, good warm shower and nice towels. The bed was comfy and the breakfast was also good.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic - a huge variety of freshly cooked tasty food. The room was clean and spacious and I had a fabulous view of the grounds from my bedroom. WIFI was good. The TV channels were limited.

Very comfy bed, nice warm room. Good service, breakfast was tasty. Plenty of choice to suit everyone. Good size rooms so there's space to breathe. Found it strange that reception was across the road from the rooms, but no complaints at all! Would stay here again.
