Reasonably cheap alternative to chain hotels
I stopped here for one night in the very busy run up to Xmas. Most of the other hotels close to Birmingham City Centre were proving way too expensive so i remembered that I had stopped here before. It's about a mile to Broad Street and is fairly handy for shopping in the Bullring etc. The room was fine with a recently updated bathroom. Some of the corridor decor looked a little bit tired but this didn't detract from my overall experience. I only had breakfast in the restaurant so can't comment on the quality of the evening meals. However, there was plenty to choose from in the morning , though £13 felt a bit steep even if this was probably because I hadn't booked ahead. Having said that, I have noticed that the cost of breakfasts has been increasing in hotels generally recently so maybe this is just a reflection of the norm.
