very handy for shopping
evening restaurant facilities and breakfast very poor
Good clean hotel, very close to Star City for restaurants and evening drinks. Good bus service into Birmingham center from Star City. Saturday breakfast very good with cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, good bacon/scrambled eggs/mini hash browns /beans/toast
Sunday breakfast, no fresh fruit,bacon was the kind you would get in an all inclusive in the carribbean, dark brown/wafer thin/streaky. Not consistent with the previous day
The room is big and comfort.
I was disappointed when I found out that there was no swimming pool as I believed when I booked. It was my mistake. I was also disappointed with the quality of breakfast. Lack of choices. All the bananas were black.
Easy to find, very helpful, cheerful and polite staff. Not overly warm overnight which was a pleasant change for a hotel. Very competitive prices Would def look out for another Hampton after this, our first stay.
Breakfast was def sufficient but could have been a little hotter and on a slightly larger plate. Chasing sausages around around a tea plate was not easy!!! Also I only had one double socket in our room? With 2 phones, an ipod, camera and hair tongs to plug in an additional socket could be a consideration. Apart from these minor points, a great stay overall
It was very clean and although my partner and I were only there one night we really enjoyed it! Staff were very helpful and the rooms were very comfy too! Breakfast was nice esp since we had been out the night before!
Very friendly staff and perfect location for our needs.
Could have benefited from spa facilities - not essential though.
Easy access from motorway. Clean, efficient and modern accommodation. Good breakfast and internet included in room price.
Staff are pleasant and friendly, it's clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent
The cleanliness, it's modern aspect, the free wi-fi, the inclusive breakfast and the efficiency of the staff. The location was very good for the business trip i was on. On site free parking was also a bonus.I will be staying again.
The shower took a long time to warm up, this may be something to do with the position of the room and the few people staying at the time.
The breakfast included and the shower
There was no mini bar in the room
Lovely surprise! Lovely friendly and genuine greeting as soon as we walked in. Excellent layout, bar, food, breakfast for overnight business stay. Room spotless, comfortable and great bathroom. Will definitely return when I'm in that part of the country again.
Design of room was modern look
Did not seem to be very clean
Impressed with the furniture and furnishings. Unusual to have a generous supply of toiletries, loved the pump dispensers. Nice roomy shower and found the bed more comfortable than Premier Inn where we would normally stay. Stayed for a Friday and Saturday night, returned from a day out on the Saturday and was surprised to find the room had been serviced and to a really good standard, some hotels wouldn't bother for a two night stay
It's location and price.
The only thing that we didn't like and other people staying there mentioned the same thing, that there appears to be between 4-7 staff on duty at any given time yet none of them have anything to do, so seemed to constantly be standing around the main reception desk and it was actually quite intimidating, it made you want to avoid going downstairs for any reason as there would always be a group congregating and having a chat. The conversation would then go quiet when you appeared from the stairs or lift. Very strange but sometimes 5 people looking at one customer is a bit intimidating
I liked the rooms which were comfortable, the staff were friendly and willing to assist you.
There was nothing that I did not like. I do not think I stayed long enough to comment.
