I used this hotel as a base last weekend with my Mum as we met each other halfway between university and home. From the off, the hotel staff were so friendly and polite, and as we arrived a bit early, they also let us into our room early. If you need directions or taxis to anywhere reception are always happy to help.
The room was spotless. The television wasn't up to date, but you could get enough freeview channels to entertain you in the early hours if you, like me, are still awake - Family Guy on BBC Three for me ! :) The bathroom was sparkling clean. We did notice on the Sunday morning that the cleaner had obviously popped in when we had breakfast as there were new towels present in the bathroom - always a plus! The beds were extremely comfortable and I got the good nights' sleep that I really needed!!!
There is a wide variety of choice for food and drink in the restaurant. Breakfast is catered specifically to what you want - 3 sausages are 3 sausages, and 1 tomato is 1 tomato - never more or less than what the customer asks for :) I would like to say a particular thanks to our waitress over the two days, Bernie. She was very pleasant, engages well with customers and is very helpful. Considering it was only her and two other girls in the restaurant on the Saturday night, she had done a marvellous job.
The hotel has a good location if you need transport to the city, but don't necessarily want to be 'in the thick of it' either. Nearby attractions include Star City (highly recommended for families with children) and Aston Villa football grounds, but is not too far from the Bullring or Birmingham New Street/Birmingham Moor Street railway stations. It's about a 30 minute drive from the airport, but I don't know, seeing as I commuted into Birmingham New Street via train.
All in all, if I were to visit Birmingham in the near future again, I would definitely stay here. It's cheap, it's friendly and it's got an ideal location with a beautiful view of the canal, if you are lucky enough to have a room that faces onto the back.
