Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GPJ1198 Good because of location
having stayed at this hotel 12 months ago on the same journey to the south there has been no improvement. The hotel needs a refurb which I understand will happen next year. The pillows are still uncomfortable, I now take my own. The location of this hotel is great, hopefully when refurbished it will meet all my expectations.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pandjw Never again
We stayed at this hotel earlier in the year and left a day early due to the noise with people running up and down the corridors into the early hours.
On our second visit - Our room was clean and tidy although a bit musty smelling. Then we went to the bathroom - What a shock - there was BLACK MOULD all over the ceiling and the tiles. Black mould above the mirror and rust running down from the hinges on the door.
We used the restaurant and had to send my meal back because it was COLD!. Cold Lasagne YUK!. My guests had finished their meal by the time mine came back.
Needless to say we will NOT be staying at this hotel ever again. It was appalling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marc123 Awful room dirty dated and worn out.
The room in the hotel was in a very bad condition, furniture covered in cigarette burns, foul smell in room, decor cracked walls and dirty paintwork.
The Bathroom was disgusting. Sink massive crack running through it, cracked soap dish in wall, long blanco hairs in bath and smelly shower curtain.
Very disappointed I have emailed the hotel to complain and not even got a reply. Not the usual standard of Holiday Inn.
This hotel badly needs attention or removed from holiday inn brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trogface1958 Relaxing Escape and So worth It
I had a really fabulous stay at this Hotel. after a bit of a stressful time at home, I had decided to spoil myself with a little escape weekend. When I arrived I must say that I thought it looked like it had been a old Care Home or College facility, but it didn't deterr me , as when I entered the Hotel I was pleasantly surprised. Bright modern surroundings and helpful cheery staff greeted me and I soon found my Room on the Ground floor facing onto a pleasant courtyard which was so quiet and peaceful. All the facilities were excellent, the staff were lovely, the food was really good and I will definitely be back for another escape from the rat race soon !! Thankyou ...totally chilled. !!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Corfe traveller One night stay
A very welcoming Hotel, the staff at check in were attentive and helpful, the room was more than adequate for 2 adults and 2 children. Rooms and beds were clean and comfortable, but the overall appearance tells a story of a well used and in need of refurbishment hotel. Would recommend this hotel for short breaks and ease of access to the M6.

had a great stay for a weekend in birmingham shopping and going to the theatre, without the hassle for driving as the bus stop right outside takes you to the city at a cheaper rate that car parking fees or a taxi.

Stayed one night whilst attending a family wedding nearby.
Thought that £14.99 for a buffet breakfast was a bit steep.
PLEASE REMOVE ASHTRAYS from near the Hotel entrance.
SMOKING SHOULD BE ABOLISHED!!!!!!!!!
As a Non smoker I had to walk through people smoking outside front t door of the premises.

We stayed for three nights at the Holiday Inn Birmingham M6, Jct 7 the staff really went out of there way from reception, restaurant in house keeping and the chefs brilliant.

Breakfast well laid out everything you could want staff again excellent service.
Myself and partner would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to all the staff at Holiday Inn Birmingham.
All our very best wishes to you all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aisala Excellent break wih good leisure facilities
Overall the hotel was excellent, all the facilities worked well and the rooms were very clean and perfet. The only thing I would like to mention was the choice (or lack of it) for dinner, there was not much to choose from for vegetarians and the choice of dinenr was a little basic, that said the rest of my experience was absolutely perfect (including breakfast which offered a very good variety). I would stay there again no doubt but may be next time I would not be taking dinner at the hotel.

Food is nice and a large choice at breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Helen248 Budget hotel, valur for money & O.K for 1 night but poor housekeeping
2 adults and 1 child stayed on Fri 22nd Aug 1 night with Cadbury World tickets. I booked this hotel as we attended an event at the Ricoh centre in Coventry and all hotels near the centre were fully booked. We decided to stay 1 night after the Insomnia event and visit Cadbury World the next day. Pre booked online. Arrived at 5pm, receptionist friendly (Asian young lady) but could not give me a resturant menu which I thought was weird. Room 353 - The room on first inspection was O.K, double bed with sofabed, desk, tea/coffee making facilities, bathroom with bath and shower complimentary bath foam and shampoo (apparently the bath foam is shower gel). The furniture is worn and slightly scuffed but no big issue.
We did have a problem with housekeeping. Phoned down to reception at 9pm as went to use ironing board and it was completely broke in half and stained something horrid (see photo's). Reception said they would send a new one up a.s.a.p. We explained that we wanted to go to bed and they said they would not be long. One hour later we were still waiting! In the end I gave up and phoned down to cancel it as we were going to bed. I tried to iron using the top part of the iron on the desk but it kept sliding around. Upon closer inspection I found dirty tissues on floor next to bin and used loom bands on carpet floor next to bed. Bathroom also had rust around fittings. Also in the literature stand there was a weird note left by previous guest and they had ripped a corner off of one notice and this was left (see photo). Housekeeping need to be more vigilant and spend 2 minutes inspecting the rooms.
Tried to sleep and was kept awake by 2 ladies next door giggling and laughing/talking until 2am! We complained at midnight and again around 1.30am. This is not the fault of the hotel as I praise them for their effort. They sent a member of staff up twice but these ladies ignored the staff's polite requests to keep the noise down. I was so frustrated and wanted to knock on their door as our 12 year old could not sleep. Really annoyed me and so rude and inconsiderate. Also heard a lot of doors banging until around midnight.
Friday night we did not eat in resturant but went to Harvester just down the road where have a lovely 3 courses for a very cheap price. Breakfast was good at the hotel, arrive early and you have an excellent choice of cereals, fruit juices, pastries, cold meats, fresh fruits, pancakes, toast and full English. My only negative point would be that instead of serving tea/coffee in a cup which gets cold. A pot of tea would have been better. I would of liked a top up but the waitress serves you a cup then you self serve the food yourself. After breakfast we sampled the spa - pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Changing rooms and showers a little tired but nice facilities. Jacuzzi was so hot and you get complimentary towels. You need a pound coin for locker. Whizz machine to dry costume in changing rooms and an extra sauna in ladies changing rooms if you don't want to share with the men. Age for jacuzzi, steam room and sauna is over age of 5 which I thought was strange. What 6 year olds use a sauna? Surely for health and safety reasons should be over 12 or 16, just my opinion.
Large car park included in price which is good. This hotel is conveniently located for attractions and a budget option for 1 or 2 nights. The walls are paper thin and unfortunately we got little sleep. When we checked out we shared our concerns with Matthew who was a very chirpy friendly chap.
I would have given this hotel more if I didn't experience the noise from next door and the issue with the ironing board and housekeeping. Also price on wall when arrived for 1 night was double what I paid, definitely not worth this make sure you book in advance for half this price!

Had a lovely stay at the holiday inn, staff were very helpful and the inn itself was in good condition very clean and tidy! It does not deserve the bad reviews it gets the only thing that lets it down is the food prices that are very steep meaning we went down the road.
Also needs better advertising board outside we drove right pass it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CheesyNut Old property
The Holiday Inn at Birmingham M6, J7 is an old hotel that is past its prime. The guest rooms have clearly seen better times and the mattresses reflect the age of the hotel. The bathroom gives me a flashback of the 70's and is held together by silicone. The hotel is in dire need of remodeling and upgrades. Internet access is cumbersome, speed mediocre and frequent log-ins are required. Several floors are only available by stairs which is problematic with a lot of luggage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dart1 Good value, great service and facilities
We stayed one night with two grandchildren 6 and 11 years on our way back from the Lake District. The hotel is easily accessible from the motorway and despite being so close the room was very quiet. The children especially enjoyed the pool, the children's evening buffet in the dining room and the pancake machine was a big hit at breakfast. Due to a wedding reception taking place in the lounge - another room had been set aside for guests use - the hotel had also setup two rooms for children's use with a pool table and table top football. These were an added bonus and much appreciated. A very enjoyable stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gingerwhitch Easy to find
Just off motorway was given clear directions. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. However Hotel is on two floors and I was not told about any lift. I use a walking stick so found it difficult to climb the stairs to get to my room. Used the restaurant for dinner, quite late in the evening. Service was slow, tables not cleared, some staff setting up for breakfast, very slow in taking our order and the food was even slower in arriving. When it arrived it was hot and tasty and there had been a reasonable choice but it with a little more effort could have been an outstanding experience, instead we were fed.

It's value for money staying at this hotel, the one difficulty we experience was the absence of lift to the third floor and level one down stairs. Free car park is a big plus, access to the M6 is just 2 minutes from the Hotel, there is no traffic noise from the Motorway in the room, we had a quiet and peaceful night sleep.
