Nice but not what I'd call 4 star

Overall our stay was OK-to-good. It's a shame because with some tweaks it would have been good-to-great and those 3 stars would turn into 4or 5. Those little extras that you expect weren't there - free wifi (in fact, ANY wifi in the rooms would have been nice!), bottles of water. However, the staff were all great and very friendly, the food was good, although I'm not sure if they were understaffed but it was always took a touch too long to be served regardless of which of the 2 restaurants we were in. We were travelling with our 9 week old son and the hotel was very accommodating with providing a crib and finding us space in the restaurant for the pushchair. What was annoying was that there only appears to be one lift for the entire hotel which is right by reception. Our room just so happened to be at the very far end of the hotel building which meant quite a walk, through MANY doors, with the pushchair anytime we wanted to get anywhere. Word of advice if you're travelling with kids - ask for a room close to reception! There was no hot water on our first morning but I was told there was a temporary fault that had been fixed so these things happen I suppose. In short, a good option if you need somethign close to Birmingham/Coventry but don't want to stay in the city. We weren't there for the golf though so if that's what you're after then I'm sure you'll have a different take on the place.
