Good location for visiting the NEC, and access to motorways. In a quiet leafy green location, so traffic noise was not a problem.
Quick and easy check-in, breakfast was very good, a lot of choice. Staff which were all British, very unusual in this day and age, were helpful, responsive and interesting to talk to.
Room was a good size and comfortable.
The only problem were the entry keys to the room, they often didn't work, so it meant going down to the reception to get new ones.
The swimming pool was good and not busy.
The staff were polite, friendly, helpful and obviously well trained. 24 hour reception so my arrival at 2 a.m. was no problem. The hotel is just at the end of Solihull High Street and so 2 minutes from the shops, a few minutes from bus stops, 10 minutes walk from the station and a further 14 minutes train ride from there to the centre of Birmingham. The hotel is also only minutes drive from Birmingham airport.
I only ate breakfast in the hotel. The food was good and a wide selection. A bit pricey at £12 if you're only having a continental breakfast but perhaps, as an overseas visitor, I'm a bit out of touch.
Hotel was lovely, you'd never think you were close the NEC or M42!
Grounds are beautiful, they have little bunnie rabbits, ducks and geese!
Our Superior Double room was nice.
Food was lovely.
Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Would definitely recommend.
Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was OK (although it is more a 3 stars than a 4 stars) and clean. I would expect for example a short selection of teas and some biscuits. But only English Breakfast was available. In the bathroom, not much shampoo/soap was supplied (just a little sample of each… for 2 people).
The room we occupied was right outside the kitchen so we had to put up with the extractor fan running all night, to cure this problem secondary double glazing could be installed in rooms at the back of the hotel to keep the noise down
"Nice hotel and reception staff was very helpful."
Nice hotel and reception staff waves very helpful when a mistake had been made with our booking, we where a family of 4 but was given a room for 3 after calling reception staff the lady was very helpful and sorted problem out within 5 mins. The only set back was the cleaniess of room had a lot of dust on radiator and bathroom taps were not polished had water marks all over.
