Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by iffybee Very nice hotel
Hotel was very nice compared to other holiday inn expresses. Mathew at front desk provided fantastic customer service. Only thing I would fault was the poor selection of breakfast and the tables not bring clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mr. W Our trip to Birmingham
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed a short break in Birmingham, centred around a visit to Cadbury's World.
We chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Birmingham South, due to its close proximity to the attraction and its easy access via the motorway network as we travelled from the South of England.
The hotel turned out to be a great place for us to base ourselves.
Everything exceeded our expectations, except for a couple of less than good meals at dinner and a very uncomfortable sofa-bed in our Family room.
However the staff were superb and when one of our children accidentally spilt their glass of orange juice from the bar, it was quickly cleaned up and replaced with no fuss and a big smile .... we really liked and appreciated that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roshaz Good service, comfy bed
Stayed with my mum and daughter for a birthday treat before visiting Cadbury World the next day. Arrived later than intended due to traffic but receptionist efficient and helpful. Room easy to find and very clean. Beds comfy with ample pillows and nice towels for us all. Breakfast lovely, plenty to choose from hot and cold choices - toaster worked well! Recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marcus1963 Lovely stay
My wife and I stayed for 1 night whilst visiting family. I was most pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room, the service from the hotel staff and the value for money. I was impressed by the buffet style breakfast which included warm breads and a hot option. It was absolutely perfect. I cannot commend the staff highly enough, lovely, friendly and attentive people who made our stay an absolute pleasure.

Room very clean and nice. Room was noisey due to people in the next room, and the pillows were a little on the hard side.
Hair dryer not working and no replacement could not be found.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adrian147 A good base in this area
I booked this hotel because it was within walking distance of the company I was visiting.
The room was clean and modern looking and had everything on hand.
The free WiFi was easy to connect to; it was a bit slow, sufficient for e-mail, but marginal for skype calls.
The staff were excellent, but they were very busy at peak check in / check out times.
The included breakfast was good with a limited range of cooked and good range of cold options.
The local area is what you would expect, and there were several options for evening meals nearby.

The room at the front of the hotel are really noisy with the windows open. The food is not very good. It appeared to be microwaved and the Apple Crumble was still frozen in the middle. Lovely bathrooms though.

We so enjoyed our stay, the staff couldn't do enough to help & we're so friendly.
The room was spotless & the bathroom looked brand-new.
We loved that you made it easy & welcoming for families by allowing take always, even supplying cutlery, plates & condiments.
Thank you for a great experience, we'll definitely stay at Holiday Inn Express again!

Modern new hotel very clean with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay, shower was good and room well appointed.. Staff were great. The menu for the restaurant was too limited but food was fine, there's a good indian restaurant within 40 yards of the hotel and this was superb and reasonably priced. I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Penton A warm welcome and excellent facilities
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel where I was welcomed warmly and checked-in quickly which was appreciated late at night. The room was beautifully appointed and decorated, the bed was huge and very comfortable, the shower was large and everything was spotless. There was a really good choice of hot and cold food, yogurts, fruit juices, cereals, breads and pastries for breakfast. Some reviewers have complained that there was no bacon but the sausage, beans and scrambled eggs offered were fine and considering the price of the hotel I think it was all excellent value. I would be very happy to stay here again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Migrosmarket EXCELLENT VALUE
Happy to give this hotel 5 stars for everything.
The only caution for those who need to use the 1 lift...it can take ages to come especially when loads are booking out the same morning. We use the stairs anyway, so not an issue for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Traveller 123 Great Hotel, Superb Customer Service
My Wife, Daughter (16 Months) and I stayed here on Sat 12th April. What a breath of fresh air the staff are! Courteous, welcoming, helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble. We have stayed in Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels around the world and would not hesitate in saying the staff at this hotel were the best we have ever come across. We would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Birmingham area, the rooms are fitted out better than most Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza Hotels - for instance the power shower and bathroom were superb. Many thanks for a great stay, we will be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mickyboy Good stay shame about the "Free" breakfast
Reasonable sized modern rooms. Comfortable bed. Modern room with large shower. Very clean.
Attentive and courteous staff. Pleasant bar staff and good light and airy bar. Evening food limited but adequate with a good service.
The problems started at breakfast. On entering the buffet area it was crowded with no distinct order of direction to use the buffet efficiently. There was only a small remainder of beans in a dish on the hotplate. I returned a little later but still no hot food and mentioned this to a member of staff. A food cooking sign appeared on the hotplate. After 45 mins scrambled eggs appeared but never we saw any sausages. By this time I had given up and decided upon the cold options, using the last bread roll (only saw one over all the period we were at the buffet) My wife had toast and preserves, of which there were plenty. On checkout I mentioned this and was told that the hotel was full and they had staffing problems. This is not really acceptable even with a so called free breakfast.
Not an edifying experience, but having said that, I would definitely use the hotel again and hope that they can learn and resolve this problem for the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mrsmurlio Lovely hotel, convenient and clean
Really convenient, only challenge was finding the car park, signposting could be improved.
Restaurant menu was limited but the hotel hold takeout menus so ample choice.
Staff were great. Really helpful and pleasant.
Sleep was interrupted by other guests but can't hold the hotel to fault for 2 people deciding to have a corridor conversation at 4am!
I'd recommend to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bertieb EXCELLENT STAY
Our first stay at the holiday in and will definitely be back next year. The room was very clean and comfortable with excellent bathroom/shower.
Really wide range of options for breakfast, both hot and cold.
The staff at the holiday inn couldn't have been more helpful , they went beyond their duties to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible.
Would recommend this for anyone to stay at.
