Perfect location for what I wanted

I chose to stay here because I was attending a conference in the main university. The hotel is great, the price is good 73gbp for a double room bed and breakfast. I would definitely stay here again if I attend another conference training course. The only real negatives I have are as follows, the room had no air conditioning and only one very small fan, this is probably ok in mild weather but when I checked in it was sunny and the room was very warm. The other issue is the free wifi. Incredibly slow connection and a 300mb a day allowance then it stops unless you buy more. I had a presentation to write and was hoping to finish it the evening I stayed and as I use a lot of graphics, downloading these took forever. That said I will stay here again next time it's needed.

Pre book parking on site but bear in mind it is a university campus so everywhere is a walk which is a pain if you are carrying lots.

Cheap, clean and lovely

If you are looking for a travel lodge price but a lovely room, great food and cheap drinks this is for you. I am working in Birmingham most weekends and can not recommend this place highly enough. If you are on business by yourself it`s perfect

Room for Improvement

It satisfied the purpose to an extent. The room was stated as an Executive Twin well I'd like to know what was Executive about it. The general maintenance could have been better and the decor was very disappointing within the room. I would recommend but set expectation of standard quite low in room decor.

Central Location but early check-out time

I've stayed here twice now. The main motivators being cost and central location, which this hotel has more than satisfied. The hotel can be hard to find, being located in the Business School building. Only criticism is the check-out time of 9:30am; I'm sure this is just fine for business/ conference visitors on weekdays but for leisure visitors (I stayed Saturday night) this is a tad harsh! Don't bother with their breakfast; there are abundant better-value establishments within 5 mins walk of the campus.

Lovely hotel for the two.

The room I stayed at was very lovely. Like the fact that there are different setting of lights in the room (confusing at first). There are complimentary drinks in the room and the fact that there are a few selections of hot drinks (as I stop drinking caffeinated drinks) very thoughtful. Big and spacious the room, bed is very comfy, have everything I need in a room which I don't need to ask for help. The location is great as it is near enough close to everything. If there is any hotel deals in Birmingham I made sure to check this one first!! This is my second stay in 2 month and was very please I had this on the autumn sale!!

Suprised

As it was the 5th time i was staying at this hotel i was very suprised to see my room. Every other time, i enjoyed staying there n it felt comfortable and homely. However this time it was a cramped and dated rom. I didnt like the carpet it was stinedthe decor was old fashioned and the shower was a bath shower. It has made me consider going back

couple getaway

We enjoyed our stay, it has everything you need in a room. Nice deco, interior, which give a warm welcoming atmosphere. I also like the fact that there is a bath tub. The location of the hotel is by the city centre, great to be close to everything!!
