Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Njuku Bathroom stank of urine
I'm a very frequent guest and I'm normally happy with the room but this time the toilet partition stank very strongly of urine. We were there two nights and had housekeeping clean up once but unfortunately the toilet area still stank. They obviously didn't clean except to replenish toilet paper. This marred what is normally an enjoyable stay for us and made the room feel unfresh.
Also I wish there would be family room options with a real bed rather than the unfolded sofa bed because it is a very uncomfortable bed. I have a growing family so this is now an issue which never used to be. It's enough to make me consider looking to another hotel with actual beds not sofa beds, which is a shame because we like the location and free wifi and breakfast offering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MARJORY AND ALB nice hotel and friendly staff
Had a great stay at this hotel. If you are a wheelchair user then this hotel is well suited to meet your needs. Lots of blue badge spaces, automatic hotel doors and lots of space in your room to move about.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RDH17 Good value
Difficult to find entrance off roundabout.
Great value, nice clean comfortable room, excellent sized bathroom. Air conditioning was noisy and room too hot with it switched off, traffic noise audible but not intrusive. There are some good curry houses a short walk away if you don't mind crossing a four-lane roundabout.
Breakfast good value. Only criticism is that when my key didn't work and I went to ask for It to be recharged, staff made no effort to check the room number I gave was actually mine - could have been anyone's.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheeky60 Wonderful Hotel with great staff
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff are very effective and made us all feel welcome. Everything we requested in our rooms was there within minutes which is not always the case in hotels. I was quite impressed with the service.
The food was ok although the restaurant was a bit small for the large number of guests staying there that weekend. The staff did however make up for this by clearing tables really quickly making sure everyone could be accommodated.
I would definitely stay here again.

Used the hotel as a base prior to visiting the Black Country Musuem which is only 10 minutes away in Dudley. Friendly staff and comfortable room and beds and slept very well. Good breakfast with plenty of choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SD47 Nice hotel
This was a second stay at Oldbury and pleased to say that the standard was still as good as it was 2 years ago. The staff were very polite and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We were greeted good morning and were asked if everything was ok at breakfast. Clean and tidy hotel would highly recommend, easy reach of NIA and town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigger G Decent room smelly sink
Comfortable bed and quiet, so no problem sleeping. The problem was the smell from the sink. When you ran the water the smell that came back up from the drain was terrible. I reported it so it has hopefully been sorted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HIE99 Good hotel. Enjoyed the stay.
Clean room, clean toilet. Had all the facilities we needed. It was like being in a hotel instead of a budget place. Cleverly designed toilet. We were 2 adults+2 children. By the time the sofa became a bed (all done and looked very inviting), there wasn't much leg space in the corner, but it wasn't a problem. Breakfast was excellent. Car parking was free. Made our stay in Birmingham a really enjoyable one. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by isha okay, quiet and lovely staff
This hotel was alright for a nights stay. Staff friendly and room clean, my only problem was the bed sunk in the middle when my husband and i went to bed. But not really worth complaining about. The hotel was very quiet which was great, hate staying away and just hearing doors banging all night, didn't hear thing :) Free wifi fantastic !!! Stayed in a normal holiday inn the following night and they wanted to charge for the wifi!!! So go for a express holiday inn!!! Not sure why this is due to them all being holiday inns but hey ho.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SJ75 Great Service
I'm staying here three nights a week for six months. The staff are all lovely which should be a given but I have stayed in some other hotel chains where I have been really disappointed.
When you've had a long day in the office to be greeted with a friendly face makes a real difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liz56 Very comfortable stay
We stayed for two nights and the hotel lived up to the best of what we expect form HIX. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable.
The location was very convenient but missed the turning on our arrival- very confusing when you have never been before.

It was my 70th birthday and had a family get together in the pub next door . I decided to stay in the area for a few days and chose this hotel for the location . The hotel staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble . I was impressed with the cleanliness of the communal areas and the rooms . I will stay here again whenever I am in the area .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Haznixo Comfortable bed and relaxing atmosphere
We only stayed for 1 night as had a conference the next day. All staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel was very clean and freshly decorated. The breakfast was good value but the scrambled egg was not too good and the orange juice tasted more like cordial than fresh orange but rest was okay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by athleticslj Bed not fit for purpose
The bed was so bad - sloped in the middle and more like a water bed than a divan. I ended up sleeping on the sofa under a towel. Not what I expected when I booked and paid for a night away. Breakfast a bit sparse. 2 tea bags and 2 sugars - so hope you don't have a sweet tooth. Shame no hot chocolate in the room too. overall very disappointed

I like this hotel a lot for when I am on business in the area. It is always perfectly clean and comfortable with really excellent staff. The rooms are good and the air conditioning works very well (important for me). The breakfast is good with a wide range of choices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marguerite 05 Maintaining high standards
Once again, this hotel lives up to the high standard set by IHG.
Pleasant staff, comfortable, clean rooms and easy breakfast.
Only down point - possibly a little bit of bacon instead of the sausages. I am not a sausage lover, so find the cooked breakfast items a little restricting.
All-in-all a good visit.

I use this hotel very often. The staff are always helpful and welcoming.
I forgot my phone charger this week, asked if I could borrow one, in 10 minutes of asking, one was brought to my room. Brilliant !

The fact that I have stayed at the hotel on a regular basis for the past year says it all really!
Convenient location with good links to the Motorway network make it a good choice when staying in the West Midlands.
Rooms are comfortable and the Staff are friendly even at 6:00am!
A good choice for the Business traveller.

Pleasant overnight stay had an appointment at birmingham hospital the next day and needed somewhere to stay over. Comfortable beds with coffee facilities. Breakfast included only downfall ( no bacon) but other than that good choice of cereals , hot food, toast and croissants. Good place for a short stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HIEfan2013 Beds need replacing
We always have a good stay here - the staff are great, the location is perfect and there is a nice vibe about the place. This time however we noticed a deterioration in the quality of the beds - the mattress was well passed its best so if you have any back or hip problems, take that into consideration. After 3 nights, we were 2 very achey people! We have always chosen HIE over Premier Inn, however, compared to a Premier Inn King Size bed and Good Night guarantee, future business from us with HIE may be in jeopardy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr_D Reliable service and dependable quality
The staff here are attentive and friendly. Nothing is too much of a problem. They are on the ball. They answered my pre-booking requests and even if we arrived after midnight - they still had staff available to meet my requirements. Express chain seems to be better equipped for the modern traveler. Also got free WiFi. Only concern is in the breakfast - poor for vegetarians and the baked beans are awful & cheap .
The value to great .
