The Edgbaston Palace Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We booked 2 rooms as a family. ON check in, we asked for rooms to be adjoining each other. Reception staff told us that wasn't possible, sorry no vacant rooms. Rooms were smelly - carpets couldn't be dirtier. We requested twin beds for one room, instead of double - no, that wasn't possible either. At breakfast, we were sat on two different tables although we requested if the two tables could be joined together. Overall, the attitude of the hotel is 'take-it-or-leave-it' On the positive side, the location great, and price was good.
First room - radiator would not turn off, so needed window open, then could not breathe for gloss paint fumes. Also no toilet roll, and room size approx 5ft x 11 ft. After much insistence that there were only suites and family rooms available, they eventually moved me to a twin room in the adjacent hotel, which did have toilet roll, but not one drawer. It also came with a full complement of gray, stained towels and sheets. No remote for TV, which only received 4 channels. Also the window in this room did not close - old sash style window in disrepair. Wake-up calls were either non-existent (when I had moved room) or at the wrong time (4 am instead of 5 am when the clocks had moved back). Internet was 10GBP per half hour, and they posted draconian rules like no food or drink not purchased at the hotel allowed in your room, likewise no visitors allowed in room. Good points - very cheap, good location. In future I would be happy to drive further and stay somewhere reasonable.
