    Exceptional

    Everything. The price was excellent for the service and facilities.. Everything was clean, breakfast was warm (a reviewer wasn't keen on it), room had a nice power shower/cubicle, which had shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, the sink area also had handwash and hand lotion! Plenty of tea and coffee, iron board, tv etc. Very comfortable. The hotel had plenty of free parking and the Star City entertainment bit is walking distance. Aston Station is also a 15 min walk, and close to main roads. I definitely recommend it and would go back.

    If anything, location wise, amenities were a bit far off...we had a car so it was fine, but if you're not travelling by car, then it might be a small problem!

    Very good

    We got lost trying to find hotel from m6, it was raining and getting dark. On phoning the hotel for directions we received superb directions from a member of staff.

    The breakfast set up and experience was not great.

    Very good

    Room very clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated. Plenty of light to enable comfortable reading. Copious buffet breakfast.

    Self-service breakfast from hotplates, not cooked to order. Some way from city centre in a not particularly attractive area. Buses in evening only every hour.

    Clean, crisp and spotless facilities. Staff are quick to please and friendly to boot. An excellent location for getting around Birmingham being right on the main road artery.

    I've been impressed about the cleanliness of the room and bathroom and also the quality of the bed. Breakfast was a bonus as,for the price I paid, I didn't expect it.

    The Check in was the best I have ever experienced and the quickest. Top marks for the efficiency of the desk staff.The Hotel room was most comfortable clean and all I could ask for. Great value too. Despite the Hotel being near the road the room was quiet and the air con almost silent.Congrats well done!

    Everything was great. I enjoyed the visit and I was sorry I was not staying longer.

    Exceptional

    Ideal place to stay when visiting the area close to entertainment and restaraunts but has own cafe bar if you just want to eat a snack style meal with a drink before then bed. The breakfast was excellent which is surprising as its free was expecting a continental at these prices and got a full English. Would definately stay agin.

    Superb

    This is a great budget hotel that I have stayed at 3 times now. Excellent services all round and spacious rooms.

    Only thing was the pillows are poor. 1 is too low and having 2 is too high.

    Exceptional

    Friendly helpful staff, very comfortable bed and ideally situated for Xmas shopping at the Bullring, which was the purpose of our visit to Birmingham. Really enjoyed Star City too,especially Kebabish Original!

    Breakfast was awful! Included in the room rate or not, was awful. Sausages were ok, NO bacon, dried up beans and scrambled egg that had turned grey where it had been held too long. Terrible!

    Shower cubicle was smelly - possibly the drain? Hair dryer was faulty however reception did send another one to the room very quickly.
