Great value

An interesting location - actually on the campus of Aston University and the reception hall looks like you are entering a conference building, which actually you are. My room appeared to have been recently refurbished - clean, modern, with a nice bath and shower. The bedding was comfortable though the bed was average. About a 10 min. walk from the station and great price compared to other hotels in the city.

Delicious food

I stayed here overnight to attend a study day at Aston University. It was very modern, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were friendly and helpful. The lighting was a bit subdued for my liking in the bedroom, however there was a spotlight for reading in bed. It was not particularly obvious to me, where the hotel was as it is in the Business School.

Handy location close to university

Being refurbished

I was not informed there would be no catering facilities owing to refurbishment. Only one lift working. The weather was bad and it took several minutes to walk outside to another building for either dinner and or breakfast.

Ashton Hotel - Used for business

Conference Hotel was nice and in the very centre of Birmingham but a lot of refurbishment work is underway which is due for completion in October 2013, consequently no proper dining room, bar or coffee making facilities (only available in your room which I had to check out of at 09:30). Had an exam at 14:00 so needed some facilities to work/study and not available.

Newly refurbished room - very nice.

Lucky to stay in one of the newly refurbished rooms which was very nice. Bed was clean and comfortable but it hadn't been renewed in the refurbishment. Breakfast was excellent. A full english, with cereals, toast, fruit and wide selection of other items too. Room was quiet, Internet was OK, only minor complaint was the room was a long walk from the reception, and I couldn't find the hairdryer.
