The hotel was as it was described, you cannot fault the value for money. The room was abit small but this expected from the type of accommodation it is. The staff were very friendly and helpful and advised us of everything we needed. No food in the evening time but a great pub/restaurant next door which was recommended by staff at hotel. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a one or two night break using the hotel as a base as its location is ideal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sue293 A good venue for the business traveller
I stay at this hotel regularly and always have a very good night's sleep as it is quiet. I am served quickly and efficiently at breakfast and in the evening. The ample car park is appreciated.

Only comment is there could be a change to menus as it gets a bit monotonous for regular guests. So end up going out for evening meals

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacks25 Great place to stay.
My family and I were traveling to Birmingham with a pet and this Hotel was very accommodating. The staff was very nice and helpful. This was a great place to stay, weather you are traveling alone on business or just because. The room size was great and the beds were so very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the Birmingham area. The city centre is not to far of a drive and the Hotel staff can provide you with a list of shopping Mall and other things to do on your visit.

We stay at this hotel a lot when visiting family in Birmingham but our last visit stood out because I forgot our iPad in the room on checkout. I realised this about an hour later and rang the reception who told me to give them 10 minutes to check with housekeeping but my husband was already driving back there. About 15 mins later they rang back saying they'd found it and handed it over to my husband. It was such a relief and I really appreciated the good service around reuniting me with the iPad! Thanks a lot housekeeping and the receptionist on duty on the morning of Sat April 1st 2013.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PAAS123 Cold Showers & Not much Breakfast
On one of the coldest winter mornings of 2013, got up early only to find no hot water for a shower. On check out a lady complained about this before I could mention it. We were told this was because everyone must be showering, and it would be OK in 15 minuets! Now I was in the shower at 6.00am, I don't think everyone else was!!
Anyway, to breakfast, well it was as though a plague of locust had been through the place, and there no signs of more food coming, this was all at 7.00am. Not much for those coming after!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue99 A pleasant evening meal, a good night''s sleep and a decent breakfast
I stay regularly at this hotel when working nearby and I am a very satisfied customer. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. A real bonus for a light sleeper is the fact that your bathroom extractor fans do not make a noise - unlike in some other chains. The heating system is efficient and easy to control and the card that you put in to maintain the temperature when you are out of the room is a good idea. I look forward to my next stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SunderlandFan Comfortable and Served a Purpose
We required a hotel to stay the night within easy travelling distance of West Bromwich Albion - this hotel suited these requirements.
The hotel was clean, good value and just what we required.
The only negatives were to do with an old fashioned TV in the room which wasn't widescreen (part of the picture was missing from the edges) and the lack of a restaurant for a wide selection evening meal. However this was not really a problem as we walked a 100yds to the neighbouring pub / family restaurant.
We would recommend this hotel as a convenient place to stay if visiting the local area.

Stayed three nights over a weekend in February. Found the hotel to be practical and sensible with facilities that worked and were used.
Good choice at breakfast but did not try the limited weekend food.
The basic comforts such as heating, hot water, cleanliness and normal service were excellent for a short working stay.
Downside, we thought the bar expensive and charges for wifi unusual these days. But there is a pub alongside.
Altogether this is a good/excellent working break hotel providing just the right level of services to keep cost down . We would book again the next time we visit the area.

My work colleague is Gluten intolerant and your staff went more than the extra mile to ensure that her meals met with this condition. They even went to the local supermarket to get her product for the evening meal and her breakfast. We have never experienced such service, so top marks to your staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandrah Excellent value for money
Myself, daughter and grandaughter stayed here for 1 night when visiting family. We have stayed here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff are really friendly and the room was spotless. We had a family room and the sofa bed was double size and really comfortable. Plenty of clean towels in the room and everything worked including the shower. The breakfast was average but considering it:s included in the price I certainly would not complain. We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cardiff Bay it was double the price and not a patch on this one. We will certainly be staying at the Oldbury Inn again in the future.

we stayed at the holiday inn in oldbury, and this was our very first time a t a holiday inn and we were very impressed. there was nothing we had to moan about, except my younger daughter moaned about not having any drinking chocolate in the room.
But other wise it was a all round great experience, and yes i would stay again and recommend anyone else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by holiday100 Fantastic stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For several years now I've stayed at the Oldbury Birmingham Holiday Inn (M5 jct2) Every single stay has been amazing! The staff couldn't be kinder more helpful and so friendly! The Manager James is so nice and I feel as if they are family to me now after all the visits there! This year I have stayed there several times as I have a close relative in Kidderminster who is terminally ill and I like to get down to see him and his wife, my cousin to support them through these trying worrying times. I look on line for the dates I desire but usually then ring straight through to the hotel and book my stay. I have a particular 'back' room that is quiet and away from the lift where late night fellow guests can sometimes be noisy arriving back. I'm 'always' telling family and friends of what good value the Holiday Inns are and particular this one at Oldbury. I always give it top marks for 'EVERYTHING' The food is excellent, nicely presented, plentyful and hot! The variety is also excellent! In all NO WHERE ELSE IS AS GOOD AS THE OLDBURY HOLIDAY INN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A big thank you to all the staff for making my stays so comfortable and enjoyable! I also, being a disabled driver appreciate the disabled bays at this hotel and usually manage to park near to the entrance which helps me a great deal!

The televisions in the room were old portables, this didnt really leave me inclined to buy any films as they wouldnt be great to watch. i suggest you buy some new flatscreens to ensure that the viewing experience would be better and then maybe more people would buy films from your service.
