Although it is located in the centre of Birmingham the hotelrooms were dirty and uncomfortable (old beds, bathroom below standards) Hotel needs compleet renovation
Location, the price I stay here 3 or 4 times a month and there are always niggling complaints; 2 out of my last 3 early morning call requests didn't happen. Heating not turned on in my room until 3rd request; no iron in the ironing room (stolen!) but no offer to pop next door to Debenhams to get one. Location and price, plus a decent breakfast, save the day
location very good and very cheap and the staff are very helpful. The breakfast is very good. outdated furniture's and the room we stayed not was facing closed wall and very dark
the only thing good about this hotel was the guy that night on the reception he was shaking from the stress ,but we got dealy with ,and then the day after we were un happy again as my room had bee re booked to some one esle and i was sent to a yob hostel to put in polite where i had to share a lift with a skin head gross
great location for shopping etc and near station no staff about at breakfast no tables cleared to sit at when one did appear they still did not seem on top of the job. lunchtime in bar was short staffed one person behind bar doing everything not enough seats.
Quite noisy location
Location ! Location ! But clean rooms but not dirty bed was on wooden legs !! Not quiet at all and breakfast was not great
We stayed for one night, paid £40 so couldn't moan at that as other hotels in the city were much more. Rooms are very basic and you get what you paid for Hotel seems to be stuck in the 70s with the decor, we had a room with no window and air con decided to turn itself off half way through the night.
Room was dark and dirty, matted ball of hair on window pane( which faced another room, no natural light) awful room lighting, i asked for more lights and they did nothing to help.shower had no hot water and water poured out from a crack all over the bathroom floor and the t.v did not work unless you fiddled with the exposed wires!! the only reason i stay in this hotel is the location to workplace.This hotel needs a very huge renovation.
I have nothing good to say about the experience except that the restaurant staff were friendly. It took 300 minutes of queuing to get a key and a further three ascents / further quesuing to get into the room as the magnetic strips did not work. Arrived early to be greeted simply with "You can't check in here" - no welcome or greeting. the most appalling service I have ever experienced in a city centre hotel, and for the price entirely unacceptable. Surly reception staff, overwhelmed by long queues and too few computers. Poor rooms small, dark, - wall paper peeling; paint rubbed off in bathroom
Hotel room was tiny, also walls and carpet were dirty. funny smell in hallsway and lift. Bar staff were very rude.
Excellent location, high standard of room, comfortable bed, excellent en suite with bath and shower. Breakfast was not very hot and we had to wait until we had nearly finished before coffee was served, but the choice was good. The plates should have been warmed.
The location, comfort and cleanliness of the hotel.
Staff very helpful, nice location. Room was in need of decorative updating, bathroom was scruffy and tired, heater did not work well
very close to town centre
Breakfast Room was cold. Staff unable to get fixed so put up with it rather than repack and move.
The breakfast was excellent Excessive car charges £24 sterling for one night was excessive, I presume rooms are going to be updated ...
Large comfortable rooms, well heated and great bed
Great, location, good food, and comfortable quiet room!
Staff really friendly without fail.
the breakfast was fantastic.
Well appointed and central location However you look at it £170 can get you overnight anywhere
Good staff Want to charge you for water bottles in room No batteries in remote control Cheap toilet paper For the price you pay you would think the hotel would get all these little points right!
Luxury and modern styling, lovely lobby, restaurant and classy bar, clean and felt quality, professional and smart staff The drunk young italian thug at the bar....... The lack of free satellite tv channels...... Plus the parking that had to be in the NCP around the corner was closed at 11pm when I got back to the hotel!
Excellent facilities Comfortable bed overal good We presumed breakfast and car parking was included in the price as it was the previouse year and cheaper then.
Dining room staff excellent all staff very helpful Telephoned to change from one room to two. This had not happened on checking in. However we were accommodated a room each and next to each other which was great
very helpful staff nothing outstanding stood out but it was a very pleasant stay with no problems. too much chlorine in the pool and jacuzzi
Late check out at 12.00, which means you can have a lovely lie in Unfortunately the temperature was minus 4 degrees and the hotel is not built for cold weather. The rooms were just at a reasonable temperature for someone that doesn't feel the cold too much. The restaurant and lounge area were very cold and whilst the food was excellent, we left as soon as we had finished eating as it was uncomfortable to sit and enjoy.
Easy walk to NIA. Staff always polite & friendly. Nothing
Excellent service Nothing
Wonderful Room Wonderful View Wonderful Spa!
helpful porters at the entrance and the pool.
Close to Birmingham New Street rail station
The service in the bar was appalling and the hotel is starting to look shabby and neglected.
The room was comfortable. The check-in experience was very amateur for a hotel of your calibre. Also I found that the carpet in the room was quite stained.
This is the second time here and we had another wonderful time! We especially love the position as its very close to the canal network and various bars and restaurants - plus very near to the City Centre. Lovely atmosphere too as, although its an incredibly comfortable hotel it also has a 'warm and inviting' feel. Your staff are 'second to none' - well done! Hope this assists - thanks.
room was lovely Checking out was long winded as only one receptionist on, we were checking out at 07.15am (not a busy time!) to be at an appt for 07.30 but receptionist was back & forward as couldn't find a receipt for customer in front of us and never once asked for someone to serve,so we were late for our appt by few minutes....poor
The availability of an iron and ironing board in my room. When I went down to breakfast I was seated and then ignored for about 25 minutes. I had to ask one of the staff if I could order as I had a tight schedule.
The comfort of the rooms and big bathrooms along with the atmosphere in the bar/restaurant area. gorgeous breakfasts with very good attention to detail with what was on offer. The shower was a bit low in both pressure and height and the room a bit cool.
Clean comfortable and staff are very helpful and accommodating.
Stylish decor the very poor service!!! both reception and in the restaurant!!!
massage chairs in the spa were a big plus
I have stayed at this hotel before and all was as before. The room was clean, the bed comfortable. It was of concern to me that the receptionist did not appear to have my booking - it turned out my name had been spelt wrongly. I had asked for non feather pillows due to an allergy. There was a feather pillow in my room, I had to ask for this to be removed and replaced. There were problems with turning on the water for a bath through a shower mixer.
Traditional comfort with up to date facilities, warm welcoming staff and very good food.
I stayed there several times and always been very happy, however on this occassion I was very dissapointed in the room wasnt what I expected or value for money.
What wasn't there to like! We could not fault it. It's unusual to have a perfect stay with no negatives. No parking on site. It was difficult to find.
Beautiful hotel, felt right at home. The bed was comfy and the decorating was extroardinary! Nothing!
Nice,clean and comfortable Not that easy to get to in a car.
The hotel was very nice and it is in an excellent location for all the shops. The room was very hot, there was air conditioning but it was very noisy.
Convenience Old and foul smelling
The location is excellent, right at the heart of prime shopping outlets and 30 meters from all transport. The room was spotless, spacious and very comfortable.
The hotel is nice for business trip.
The staff were friendly and informative, great location for shopping and restaurants. Room was clean and comfortable. Requested some hot water for a cup of tea at breakfast and had to ask again as it was forgotten.
the wonderful Italian Restaurant across the way!
The rooms were not how I imagined from the pictures or describtion
Good value rooms and included full breakfast Hotel is in need of some TLC and getting to it was not simple due to road works!
The location was very convenient Rooms were very hot and the breakfast was so expensive that we went elsewhere
Ideally placed for shopping. Quiet and able to work in my room when required to do so. Room service very good.
The location is excellent, convenient for concert hall, theatre, museum, cinema, shops etc and a short walk from the station. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms are very tired and those facing the road very noisey, better double glazing would help. The meals are expensive but the hotel is close to the canalside bars and restaurants so it is not a problem.
Room was very comfortable, staff very helpful.Good experience. Cuisine choice was limited.
Superb location, very easy to reach by car, 5 mins walking distance between New Street Station and the main shopping centre, and the Symphony Hall, but just far enough out to be away from the hustle and bustle if you want time out. About 15 easy minutes walk from the Jewellery Quarter Mattress was a bit lumpy, so didn't get a good night's sleep, however it's the first time that has happened to me when I've stayed here
How accessible the station, NIA etc were to us Taxi company used by hotel (Falcon)
Very convenient to all ameneties. Also a nice relaxed comfortable stay. Will use again.
Oriental brasserie was unusual & food was excellent It was a little hard to find
Clean,friendly staff, very good location, free wifi, 5 minute walk from city center Room is very small,Not much room for luggage
It was very close to the Birmingham Symphony Hall and I was able to walk to and from the venue I was attending. I'm elderly and disabled, and it was very convenient for me. I liked the hotel although I'm not absolutely comfortable with the concept of no windows and relying on air conditioning for ventilation. This might be simply a factor of age, it was my first experience of this type of accommodation. I'd stay there again if I was going to Symphony Hall again.
good location for birminghambusiness trip the acoustics from the corridors are poor.
bed was very comfortable, very conveniant for centre of birmingham.Liked the free papers and fruit at the desk. room was too warm, thought there should be more milk and tea in the room.Bathroom door was hard to close.didnt like that there was nowhere to hang clothes.
compact room, comfy bed
Very unique hotel, inside in the style of a ship. Very clean, comfy, modern and very friendly staff, great central location for everything.
Location, internet, breakfest, the building is nice, the reception with stairs are nice, the staff was corteous. Room is too small for the price, no windows, smells dump.
Excellent condition of room, great shower, huge plasma screen at the end of the bed! No windows in the room!!
hotel was clean and good price great loctation loved the rooms very cosy
Although the room was on the small side it was very comfortable and the room was very clean and just right for an overnight stay. The TV in the room was a bit to big and made your eyes go funny after a while!!
the television it was hard to heat up the room, the shower wets up the whole floor when you go to the toilet
Clean and tidy Charge for wifi
Well located and clean. Good facilities. No view from room
Our beds were not done and bed linen not changed.
Central location. Room too small, air vents in the wall meants draughts over the bed! Bed seemed a very small double!
the central location, the value for money and the clean modern environment of the hotel the bar/restaurant was very crowded and noisy - but it is a city centre hotel! no shaver point in the bathroom or room.
Extremely comfortable, very clean, everything I required for my stay. very good value for money. I would certainly recommend the the hotel and I will use the chain again.
Excellent central location, near both train station and high street, as well as icc. Hotel spotlessly clean. Room well furnished - tea / coffee, hairdryer etc. Very comfortable bed Could be somewhat noisy at times - could hear every noise in the corridor. Breakfast pricey & not included in price.
The friendliness and courtesy of staff. Nothing was too much bother! None!
Only stayed 1 night whilst attending a ball at the icc but found hotel comfortable breakfast excellent. Car parking
No Hotel Literature. Not enough Coffee,tea, Milk.
The staff were very friendly, the hotel was central, room, bathroom very clean. Overall a nice experience
Welcome and hotel quality Cab firm supplied by the hotel charged an excessive fare for a short journye, namely £29 for a journey to Wythell
Excellent staff, good breakfast Small room -a bit gloomy
Staff very friendly Only 1 bath towel and hand towel for 2 people,the headboard was sticky minor things really and we didnt complain
friendly staff and a good evening meal Room size was very small
Convenient to Broad Street. Good breakfast (extra cost though). Parking.
Good location, good cleaness Poor booking process
the location of the hotel.comfortable bed. The room is very small and cramped.
