          Perfect location. Could do with a refurbishment as looks a little dated, pool area a little shabby and there was no air con in the bedroom (the fan provided didn't alleviate the humidity!) Staff were all polite, kind and as helpful as they could be. Service was always quick. Car parking fee was a bit of a shock and rather expensive as per day not per stay particularly as guests for events parked free seemingly!

          For, what from the outside, is a lovely looking place the hotel is dated, feels old and due to the nature of the room doesn't feel clean. The fittings felt old worn and I wish I'd have gone to a travel lodge or chain

          Hidden charges”
          Stayed here as a cheap option for a night stay with a friend to be close to Solihull Town centre. They charge £10 car park which wasn’t made clear. When booking. They should build this in to the room rate to avoid confusion. Apparently they have ALOT of people complain about this. We took two cars as it was a central meeting point for us both, so this was an extra £20 on our room rate that we weren’t expecting. What was a reasonable hotel became an overpriced hotel for value for money. There are other hotels in the area of the same quality, better value for money. The lady on reception was really lovely/helpful and very understanding.

          unimpressed with this 4 star hotel - please read review”
          I booked this hotel with my girlfriend as we needed to be in Solihull. On arrival at reception, we waited around 10 minutes to be served. We arrived in our allocated hotel room and it was too hot. The window would only open very slightly due to a safety cable. The hotel website misled us on their website claiming it provides air conditioning in the guest rooms when in fact it does not! After complaining to reception, we were moved to a different room but still too warm and no air conditioning. We were unimpressed with the breakfast service. On arrival, almost all the empty tables were dirty and not cleaned. We had to ask several times for items like bowls and cutlery. The swimming pool showers were out of order. To add insult to injury, the hotel charges its own guests £10 for 24 hours parking. Whilst this was waived by the hotel, we shall not be returning to the St John's Hotel unless they make us an offer and I shall therefore be spreading my concerns to other people.

          Old, Outdated and Overpriced.”
          Room had dust on almost every ledge, the net curtains were filthy. Bed and linen were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a fixer upper.( shower dial came off in my hand. Shower door leaked. Have to pay an additional £10 per day/night carparking( not mentioned on line or over the phone). Gym and Spa had seen better days. Several showers out of order. Clean but tired. Is past ready for a makeover. Staff helpful, found me a USB plug to charge some electrical items. (No charge). Seems to be a popular function venue for large parties. Can be a bit noisy at night. In summary, needs a revamp, as tired and dated. Room needed a clean. Staff helpful. AdditionL charges for parking that you only find out about on arrival. Would not give 4* perhaps 2*. Not value for money, but comfortable nights sleep. Would not stay again.

          We were booked into room 351, when we got in the room it was like a sauna so hot almost unbearable, the air con was working window open abiet a small opening, we had to sleep with two fans going all night with the air con, noisy but needed. The receptionist was good and the hotel works well as we have been there many times, but we will never go in the summer.

          Couldn't find my booking, 20 minutes to check in.”
          Arrived at the hotel approx 6pm one member of staff on check in desk. When I gave my name he could'nt find my booking on their system. Showed him my confirmation email from Agoda on my phone as proof, all the while he kept looking at his screen giving me no feedback as to why I had no booking. I was fearing the worst and expecting to be told I had no booking and no rooms available, as I could see that a large wedding was being held there that day. After about 15 minutes a large queue had built up behind me with an increasing volume of tut tutting noises, the guy gets out his mobile and calls another colleague to the front desk. I am then given the hotel email address and told to forward my Agoda confirmation email to them which I do. After about another 5 minutes he prints off a sheet of paper with just my name on it and I have to fill in all the other details. I never received any explanation to why my booking wasn't there, I know my credit card had been charged so no problem there.

          Staff in breakfast restaurant were not well equip with service skills. Several other guests kept asking for basic service, i.e tea and coffee for their tables. Buffet not kept stocked up regularly. Food was excellent, well cooked and hot. Main restaurant advertised as open until 9.30pm, we were turned away at 8.50pm for a table.

          I had asked for synthetic bedding, but the pillows on the bed were goose down. We did, though, find synthetic ones in the wardrobe. Also, may I suggest that you inform people that there is a car parking charge as this needs to be calculated into the cost of the stay. On a positive note, the receptionist was very helpful and the location was great for what we wanted to do.

          Nice hotel shame about the noise”
          Liked spa facilities, very comfortable bed, room was good. Breakfast had some good The main issue for my wife in particular who sometimes has trouble sleeping was the noise. They have a number of function rooms - Friday night the wedding celebration went to midnight - fair enough - though the noise down the corridor outside our bedroom continued for an hour or so. Saturday night the 21st birthday celebrations continued to 4 am with lots of noise from the people smoking in the car park lots of arguing and then banging down the corridor. We mentioned this to one of the receptionists and she said she would get one of the team to contact us about it - so far no email. Shame as nice hotel in a good location.
