Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taffy2 Very good value
Good size room and bathroom, both clean. Good WiFi and reasonable TV. Also, free secure parking.The staff were polite but very laid back. On the negative side, the stained carpet was a little off-putting and the mattress was due for replacing. The breakfast was o/k, consisting of the usual cold food or scrambled egg and beans, but no ham product, either hot or cold. The sausages were "different", made of chicken I think. I like and expect some pork with my breakfast whether it be sausage, bacon or cold ham. Is this an Islamic Hotel I wondered. Overall, it represents good value and I'd both recommend it and stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marijoy15 suited us
We asked for a ground floor room and it was fine. The hotel was up to the standard that we expect from this group of hotels. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is adequate. All in all, we got what we wanted.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WTL123 Clean room, friendly staff and Wifi worked well.
Breakfast truly awful, although curry night before was ok. Cutlery was like something you took camping, and most of which was crubby.
Room was clean and tidy, wifi worked well.
Would stay again if I was simply tied and wanted sleep, leave early and avoid all contact with the food.
Staff very helpful and friendly.
Very very overpriced.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ian172 Disappointing
This is the second time we've stayed here for one night, and the previous occasion was ok. However this time, although the room was in a quiet area (as requested), our stay was ruined by guests staying in a room opposite. It was blatently obvious that these guest/s were smoking as the odour of cigarette smoke was entering our room. We mentioned this to the night duty staff who, whilst sympathetic, did not appear to take any action.
The following morning, the smell in the corridor was still quite strong and we mentioned it again to the front desk staff when checking out. Whether this was escalated futher we don't know. This hotel is supposed to be a non smoking establishment, so whilst we stayed previously with no problems, we won't be returning again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brayba Convenient hotel for city centre and motorway links
The hotel is conveniently placed for getting in and out of Birmingham and very reasonably priced.
There were plenty of car park spaces and it is just a 10 minute taxi ride from the city centre.
Impressed that there was no noise disturbance given that the hotel was full on a Saturday night.
The queue at check-in took longer than expected and breakfast was very busy but the rooms are comfortable and spacious.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SwingACat Let down by the food
I stayed here for 2 weeks for business and on the whole everything is very good. The location was okay for me for work, but it is in the middle of nowhere. The plus side of that is that the car park is plenty ample and you'll never have a problem parking your car.
All the staff were very good, very friendly and helpful. You can't fault any of them !
The only thing that lets the place down in the food; it's an affrontage to eating. Breakfast is dire, it''s just terrible. The hot section is dreadful and the cold section is little better. The orange juice out of the machine had a head on it, it looked like it had been mixed with washing up liquid.
And the evening meals are just as bad. It's okay for what it is, but it's not okay for the price. £12 or so for burger that is so obviously straight out of the freezer and banged in the microwave (and I know a microwaved burger when I see one). If it was a fiver then fair enough - but not the price they charge. And the beer-battered fish; it was a triangle fish, heated up on a baking tray, the sort you get 3 for a pound from Iceland.
Really, your food is so bad you'd be better not to even bother than what you do at the moment, which is to insult people with the stuff you serve up.
