I stayed at a number of hotels in the midlands in the past couple of years, Holiday Inn Solihull is one of them.
The staff are helpful.
The rooms do need a updating with the deco, the TVs have been updated with flat screens. The rooms comfortable, good night sleep.
The gym is a good size for a hotel with a swimming pool.
Perfect location if you are staying in Solihull with walking distance to all the bars and restaurants.
The breakfast available it very good.
The rate can be a little high.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dan786 Helpful staff and excellent service
On arrival which was later than i expected the night staff were very welcoming specially after my journey had been delayed due to the M25 being closed for 3 hours AT Junction 10.
The kids pool was a treat for the children as not many Hotels have this facility for children.Touchwood shopping centre is a stones throw away. I was asked to leave my credit card details at the deck just in case i purchased any items at the bar when it was not accept ing cash. I refused this request and paid most purchases with cash.

I have recently changed jobs and now find myself having to stay away from home during the week. I find the Holiday Inn in Solihull a friendly, welcoming hotel that I can easily relax in. The gym is well equipped and the location opposite the Touchwood centre works well for me. The staff are excellent, attentive and always willing to help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dede56 Superb as always, the staff are exceptional very comfortable stay
Great stay, the staff couldn't do enough, asked for an extra bed as we were three women on a shopping trip nothing was too much trouble. And the towels were fluffier than some of the best five star hotels I've stayed at.
Great value for money and so convenient for the shopping centre.
Highly Recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MsStress1 Another Great Stay!
My wife, myself and our 2 little dogs enjoyed another excellent stay at Holiday Inn, Solihull last week for 2 days celebrating our Wedding Anniversary & a Birthday.
Not only was the Executive room spacious and clean, the Air Con worked like a dream, the bed was very comfortable, the room service brilliant and the Restaurant food excellent!
There was also adequate parking and disabled access in their well maintained grounds and good Internet access.
We have nothing but praise and thanks for the Staff for another memorable stay and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting to stay there for either business or pleasure.

We choose to stay at this hotel when ever we visit Solihull. It has a central location with easy access to shops, pubs and restaurants. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and staff are always friendly and eager to please. There is a very pleasant restaurant and the breakfast offered is excellent. In our experience the hotel consistently meets very high standards.

I would like to say a massive thank you to the staff of Holiday Inn Solihull, it was our first wedding anniversary and my wife emailed you prior to our visit. What a lovely surprise for myself to discover that you had upgraded us to a lovely executive room. The upgrade alone would have been fabulous but we were both thrilled with our room decorated with flower petals, our bottle of wine and a lovely anniversary card.
Thank you so much to all the management and staff who were very welcoming and helpful from our check in, the bar staff, the gym and leisure personel and obviously house keeping.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to visit again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRCTS Very good value and facilities
This was our second stay at this hotel at a weekend. For the advance purchase price, and with the available faciliites, this is very good value. The hotel is crisp and clean and has a decent health club and pool. For a weekend stopover, ideal. The restaurant is pleasant but pricey (there are other restaurants across the road...).
Off the motorway network (M42), but easily accessed.
Much better value than other reasonably local HIs and HIEs as a stopover hotel, and not crowded at weekends.

I was amazed how lovely our room was when we arrived. It was defaintely value for money. I rated the room and comfort good as the bed was too hard for me but fine for my husband. I would defatinely go back and stay again. When we arrived there was a robe on the bed, I just found my whole experience excellent and was so pleased . Thank you so much Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BlancaJohn Fire alarms, fire alarms....
Flew in from USA drove up from LHR and checked into this Hotel for two nights. The following morning I had business in Coventry and left my wife to sleep off the jet lag. Fire Alarm test mid morning, oh well they have to do it some time.
After dinner in Solihull went to bed around midnight for the second night and guess ? 2.30am. Fire Alarm, evacuate the building stand around for 30 minutes whilst they check the building, ok it's false alarm.. A little note of apology but nothing else.
Not much rest, charged for internet, charged for parking but it was a half way decent rate for the second night. Came back a week later hoping for a similar rate on the same night, no such luck more than double.
Check all the available options if the rates are high.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by allblack71 Not the best night of sleep
Stayed Friday and Saturday night. I shall just tell it exactly as it happened....
Arrived Friday approx 2100hrs after working all day and 2hr drive. Requested 0600hrs wake up call (needed to leave approx 0700hrs). Allocated twin room at extreme rear of hotel, on 1st floor. Very warm night so slept with windows open.
Woken at 0215hrs by fire alarm & evacuated to car park where fire engine was arriving. Waited outstide for 40minutes until allowed to return to room.
Woken at 0430hrs by collection of bins (from rear of hotel).
Woken at 0600hrs by morning call, left hotel by 0715hrs, rather tired!!!
Reception staff friendly. Good standard of accomodation. Had good night's sleep on Saturday night. Didn't eat or drink at hotel BUT at previous stay, breakfast was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by allblack71 First stay and already booked return visit
First time at this Holiday Inn and it left good impression. Booked 2 night stay when attending ICC Champions Trophy cricket match at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Enjoyable stay - all members of staff were really helpful.
Complimentary breakfast was kindly offered/accepted on Day 2 with lovely choice of products and nice dining atmosphere.
Plenty of parking around hotel building, barrier on entry.
I've already booked another 2 night stay this coming weekend. Excellent customer service!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie2013 What a delight!
I travel a lot for work and have experienced a lot of hotels. Staying at the Holiday Inn in Solihull so I could attend a friend's wedding nearby was a very pleasantly surprising experience.
The service was impeccable; from the extremely helpful and friendly check in staff, to the bar tender to stayed open later so my friends and I could have a night cap to the F&B manager who was very patient with my friends and I as we played 'musical chairs' trying to work out where to sit at breakfast.
My room was large and the bed very comfortable with all the amenities you'd expect.
The jewel in the crown was the free access to the gym facilities. What a treat to have a morning swim before heading off to a wedding.
I honestly cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nomad2 Not 4 star and expensive parking and internet
Hotel location is excellent with a shopping centre and mall just across the road. Stopped here for an overnight stay while travelling. Reception was very friendly and helpful especially when we had a small problem. Didn't use the restaurant as there was a selection across the road. Initial impression of the room was poor with very visible stains on the carpet. However the room appeared clean and was nice and large. Once again a poor shower. I put the poor pressure down to being on the top floor but am now thinking that this is a standard pressure for HI UK - is this correct?
The Hotel charges £5 per night for the car park and incredible £5 per hour for internet. There is a health centre with swimming pool and these are available to guests. Presumably this is why it gets 4 stars but I'm sure guests would rather have free parking and internet instead of the health centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cazillen Comfort in central location
We had a very comfortable stay over two weekend nights. Positives were the room (good size), the outlook (over gardens and fountain), and the staff (pleasant and helpful).
Great location: very handy for the shopping centre Touchwood, and the town centre.
Negatives was the water in the swimming pool, with dirt visibly floating in it and lying on the pool floor, and the grubby floors in the male changing area. We also missed an obvious towel rail in the ensuite bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark7117 Great Serv ice
We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Solihull and found the customer service to be 2nd to none, particularly on the reception. When we arrived in our room, we found there wasn't an extra bed for our 9 year old son who was staying with us. One call to reception and the bed was there in 5 mins! Also, on returning back home, we found we had accidently left some clothing in the hotel room. Again, only one call to housekeeping and the items arrived in the post very quickly. Well done all at Solihull.

My family have been staying at this hotel for twenty years now.....my son was 2 when we first stayed there ! We have seen the development of Solihull Touchwood, celebrated our daughter's 18th birthday there, and have many memories of exciting trips e.g. Cadbury World, wrestling at the NIA in Birmingham and more recently, a great day out at Shugborough. The hotel maintains its high standard, and is perfect for us ! The Health Club is an added benefit......we foresee ourselves continuing to stay there for many years yet !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NeilR Great location and fantastic staff
As a frequent business traveller I'm never disappointed with the customer service I receive whilst staying at this hotel. Check in / out is generally very efficient and staff are always extremely polite, friendly and attentive, particularly on Reception (with Hannah and Chloe never failing to exceed expectations).
With such close proximity to the Touchwood centre the Holiday Inn is always No.1 choice when in the Solihull area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Waitingtoolong Slow Dinner Service
Room good, staff pleasant, yet we had to wait almost two hours for our main course in the restaurant. Our table had 11 people, and there was only one other table occupied, so why the kitchen could not cope is a mystery, and really took the edge off an otherwise good experience.
