Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sri04 Couldn't get to work IHG
The overall hotel is very very good, but whilst booking the hotel the IHG rewards didn't work where I could have taken the advantage of club member and could have earned some points for future bookings .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cornwallchris Good stay and very handy
A typical holiday inn experience. All clean and tidy. Very handy to the M5, finding it was a doddle as long as you get in the correct lane on the roundabout. The free parking was fine, noise levels at night, in the room, were good for such a location.
The staff were helpful and went to a lot of trouble to find some mint teabags which turned out they had run out of, not that unusual.
Breakfast was typical with small portions of scrambled egg coming out to keep it nice and fresh. The toaster was the normal warmed bread or burnt and no other choice toaster. The Breakfast TV was slightly less obtrusive than they can be in some Holiday Inns which was a bit of a result

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ar786 Brilliant service will definitely use again
Stayed with my wife and two children for 7 nights. Room had everything we needed. Enough space for the four of us. Beds were comfortable. No problems. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Plenty of variety. Staff were very polite and helpful. Service with a smile even though they were there over the Christmas break. Excellent location for everything we needed to do. Would definitely recommend as great value for money. Thanks to all the staff at Holiday Inn for making our stay so welcome and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gillon1981 Beautiful hotel
This was an absolutely beautiful hotel. Gorgeous rooms clean and the staff had got the extra bed ready for my son. Great staff very nice and helpful with extra requests like take out food, late check outs, a taxi service just to name a couple of things. It was honestly in my top 3 for over night stays. Totally worth the money and I am looking forward to staying there again soon

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KikiRyRy Clean, Great Customer Service But Did Not Read Requirements
The room was clean and freah. Staff were friendly and helpful. However, I had writeten a comment in the specific requirements section and asked for a double bed not two sing beds pushed together. When i got in the room there was just two single beds myself and my partner had to push them together.
Otherwise the hotel and stay was perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dardanian Very clean property
This property offers excellent value for money, and has excellent staff and service. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel. Even the manager helped with keeping the breakfast area clean, which was nice to see. Overall, very pleased and will be back next time I am in the area. The only suggestion for improvement is the breakfast itself. Sure, it is included in the nightly rate, however it would be great if there are more healthy options to choose from. It still gets a 5-star from us though.

I have stayed at the hotel on a number of times over the last 10 weeks. The staff are very good and help with any minor problem that you may have. Sue and Amy are two of the staff that have made a major contribution in this area. But well done to all the team. I look forward to my return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by V1Iyer A fantastic value for money hotel with superb members of staff
My wife & I use this hotel frequently for spiritual days at the nearby Sri Balaji Temple as it is only a stone throw away. We stayed for 10 nights from 26/10/2013 to 04/11/2013. The staff in the front desk - Sue, Adam, Abbie, Kay, Amy to mention a few went out of their way to help. The ever smiling Steven was always at hand to help with our luggage, which was very much appreciated as I am a registered disabled person.
The room was comfortable & clean. There were 2 problems - 1. The heating did not work in the room but we were given an electric heater which was sufficient. 2. The toilet seat weighed a ton, disabled person user unfriendly and was the most uncomfortable one I have ever sat on!
The public area was always kept clean with flat screen TVs but with annoying loud background music. Please change to some soft music. It was handy to find an ice dispenser & a microwave & the Independent Newspaper 7 days a week!!
Breakfast was good but with no choice for Vegetarians - how about including some porridge, hash browns, mushrooms & tomatoes?
Overall, great value for money & I strongly recommend this hotel while thanking all the members of staff for their valuable support & help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dees1234 Fantastic, comfortable stay
I stayed for one night as I came up for a family occasion. Other members of my family (young and old) were also staying.
All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful and made us feel most welcome!
The breakfast was plentiful and tasty! The rooms were clean, comfy and there was hardly any noise despite being on the ground floor.
Great value for money! Would highly recommend and definitely stay again! Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abcool Satisfied.
This was the second time we stayed st this hotel, it is a great location for ease of acess from the motorway. Rooms were clean, towels changed everyday even if we didnt request it. Breakfast is great,excellent choices, dining room clean and turns into a licensed bar in the evening.
The hotel as ample parking however during the week all spots were mostly taken so dont come back too late if your going out.
There is a pub next door that serves food for both lunch and dinner, you can order food in ( pizza and Chinese) or walk to mcdonads over road,otherwise you will need drive to find restaurants.
On the eve of our departure we asked the front deck for a wake up call as no alarm clocks in the room, an we needed to be on the road early to catch our flight home,we were told they do not provide this service, he mentioned something about tv's not working as they somehow act as an alarm. Overall we would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jo36 Excellent service, friendly staff
I requested a 'quiet room' and was accommodated with my request by very helpful and friendly staff. The following day I noticed that I had lost a bracelet that had sentimental value. When I called the hotel and spoke to Adam to see if I had left it in the room, I was delighted when he told me that the bracelet had been found in the car park by hotel staff and had been handed in to reception. My bracelet was returned to me by return post and I cant praise the hotel staff enough. Well done to all the team at Oldbury and I look forward to seeing all again in the near future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by knightstyle Nice clean and quiet hotel
I find it hard to find fault. The hotel was clean and and the staff inviting. There was no problem with our pre arranged early arrival and the room was ready.
The room was quiet and of a good size for the two of us, the double bed was comfortable and the sheets and towels good quality.
Good self service breakfast but no bacon!
Car park directions confusing when exiting, we and another car went round looking for the exit to the M5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bionicatomicuk Tell us about the Car Park
We were attending a wedding In Birmingham and needed to be there for 2.15. We called and asked if we could check in early at 1.00 pm. That was all arranged. Nice friendly welcome form a young lady that was very nervous as she was new. She offered us the choice of 300 extra points or free drink and snack at the bar, because I am a Platinum member. As usual the standard was high, as we find in all the IHG hotels we stay in. Breakfast was excellent. The building seems fairly new. My only small criticism is about the car park. The hotel uses a management company to prevent non-guests parking there. You need to register your car when you check in. We weren't told this and only found out at breakfast the next morning where there were small signs on each table telling you to register your car. There should be a big notice at the check in desk and the staff should also tell you when you check in. We told the person at the desk as we checked out and they entered our car on their system, telling us if we got a letter from the parking management company we should call the hotel and they would get it cancelled.
