            The foyer and everywhere downstairs looked classy. Upstairs not quite the same appearance. Our room was clean with all white linens, basic but fine for a weekend away. Only one problem the room smelled of sweaty feet!! Not ours!!!

            cheap and cheerful.”
            The hotel itself was lovely but the area surrounding was not. Room was small but useful for the amount of time we spent in there. Shower was good but the water didn’t drain down the plug so you could only have a 2 minute shower then you had to wait a hour for the water to drain back down the plug. Windows in the room were rattling in the wind which was noisy through out the night. Our room looked out on to dirty back street roads. Ironing room was available but the irons didn’t work.

            You walk in to reception and this could be a reception of a 5 star hotel. Things started going down hill when i went in the lift. Crisps and liquif, all over the floor. I don't want to think what liquid. By the morning thy were joined by pizza. The rooms are small. Ok for one person. Bathroom waa nice. The bedroom, thats a different matter. Stains on the carpets, walls and curtains. The mattress was old and had a huge dip in the middle. The area is very run down. Didnt feel safe and the carpark was an old derelict building. Nothing about this hotel felt safe.

            Okay hotel in not a particularly attractive area”
            Pros, the reception and bar were smart and the staff were courteous and friendly. Cons, the car park is a rather rough looking warehouse. Didn't feel particularly comfortable leaving my car there. I was kept awake until the early hours with loud music from outside. Partly because the windows are old let road noise and drafts in

            Horrific - don’t stay here”
            The hotel is located in an area which is very run down, I felt uncomfortable walking through here in daylight. On first appearance the hotels reception is nice and welcoming, however, it just gets worse from this point. The corridors need serious refurbishment and are lined with dirty washing and empty beer glasses. They even smell of weed. The rooms themselves are the most horrific I’ve ever seen. The walls are covered in dirt and the bed sheets are dirty and covered in black hairs. The kettle was full of grime so it was unable to be used. The bathroom looks relatively refurbished, however, around the shower is black with muck and the toilet had faeces marks within it as well as pubic hairs. Me and my companion chose to book new train tickets to return home as the hotel room was not suitable to stay in. Upon speaking to reception they were very blunt and unhelpful.

            Hotel was very tired looking. Bed had a hole in it and the shower fixture was hanging off. The room wasn't that clean and the whole hotel smells. It is a twenty minute walk from the centre in a dodgy area.

            Upon arrival everything looked nice the lobby was clean, fresh and welcoming. Once you got to the rooms it all went downhill! Smell of damp, peeling paint, missing wallpaper. Rooms; walls so thin you could hear everything and people walking in the corridors. Bathroom not clean, tile grout all mouldy.

            Good for a cheap stop over”
            We got this hotel very cheap for a one night stop over in Birmingham after a night at the glee club. For the price we paid (less than 30 pounds) we were happy with it, the room was basic but clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit tired and outdated in the corridors etc but for what we paid we couldn't really complain. You get what you pay for, if you just need somewhere to lay your head in Birmingham and aren't looking for the ritz then this is ideal. A twenty minute walk from new street and the bull ring, its not in the best area of Birmingham so I would maybe recommend getting a taxi late at night if you're on your own but we managed alright on a Friday night.

            Terrible ”
            This was the worst place we’ve ever spent the night the only reason we booked the room is because on the website it clearly said there was a spa , after we paid they informed us there was no spa. The tv in the room never worked the signal was fuzzy and it kept skipping was impossible to watch anything. Then to top it off was forced to have a cold shower in the morning as apparently no hot water unbelievable. Honesty avoid this hotel at any cost.. hotel hmm maybe it should be called a hostel
