Stayed here on Friday night. Hotel is in a great location for theatres, nightlife and the bullring. Clean and modern rooms with good amenities and the lounge bar area is nicely done out old school British design, lots of candles for atmosphere and comfy seating, would recommend

The hotel is an Oasis of calm and grown up relaxation in the middle of busy Birmingham. Surrounding area is not as scary as some people think - we felt safe walkign around at night. But the hotel is almost to good to leave anyway. Chill out lounge with its squishy sofas, newspapers, Xbox, pool table and candles for mood...

Expectations were high having previously stayed at hotels in this chain and I wasn't disappointed. Room was clean, toiletries were really nice, I needed a change of pillows due to the fact I'm allergic to feather Ines and this was done within 10 mins of my request. Signs to the gym could be a bit clearer once you are on...

Approaching the hotel I had concerns, near a busy road, car wash and two large tower blocks my thoughts where that this could be a massive mistake! However going through the doors in reception all of this changed, firstly it smelled amazing (never did ask what that was), the service at front desk was spot on and quick. The rooms...

Good effort, a few rough edges. Front of house staff were good and friendly, room was nice and clean, albeit small. Adequately furnished, my friends suffered with the skinny pillows although the mattress was good. Very little in the room, no “complimentary” bottle of water as mentioned in the booking and some of the basics like pen and pad, local...

The rooms are quite small but the reception workers and staff are very friendly and helpful. Helped us with directions and were always smiling. TV only had bbc 1 and no other channel would work but I couldn't be bothered to complain but I hear they have sports and movie channels?

Staff were friendly and helpful. First room had a very strong chemical aroma. Staff did swap our room promptly but moved into a twin room not a double as had booked. Gutted as valentines treat. Room next to noisy vending machine. Wet room flooded and had to be sorted. Smell of weed in corridor.

The hotel is located close to China Town and it's a 10 minutes walk to the center. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is kind. Do ask for a room without connecting door to the next room, because you can hear the TV program of your neighbour.
