Budget

Basically you get what you pay for at this hotel. The hotel is very dated and room condition therefore is not great, housekeeping not great either and ignore do not disturb signs. Basically feel like you're being hounded out your room and hour before check out. Very central however if you can live with staying in a hotel which would've been at its peak in the 60's-70's!

Hotel break

I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel it had a very warm & welcoming greeting from staff on the reception. The room was nice and cosy however when I asked for a double I didn't except two singles just pushed together and the beds were quite hard and uncomfortable. My overall stay was good I would visit this hotel again at the price I paid.

unpleasant staff

The worst hotel in UK. Unpleasant staff, booked a room from 26 Dec to 1Jan, came 27 Dec and my room was still not ready. I was told to wait with my 5 years old child 4 hours for check in! Outrage!

Nice if you just need somewhere to sleep

We only needed this hotel for one night on new years eve. Location was brilliant as it is located within the outside but of the Bullring Shopting Centre. I wouldn't say it was value for money as it is literally a bed bathroom dressing table and old TV nothing amazing about it. It's a shame as it has a lot of potential but overall the reason for the stay was just somewhere to sleep and it did just that
