Convenient location. Very hard to find car park.

It did not feel like we were staying in a hotel. More of a college/dormitory experience. The room was very small and not easy to find.

It's like staying in a Halls of Residence

Posted 02-May-2016
Pros: The breakfast was nice, but overpriced. There was nothing else to like
Cons: The rooms are noisy and hot, the guests are noisy and drunk, the parking has drug-users in it. Basically everything
Location: This hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Birmingham.
This hotel should definitely not be considered 4*. Even based on Expedia's own ratings it is 2.5* at best; the standard and facilities are akin to a Travelodge. The rooms are small and clean with basic facilities, but absolutely none of the trimmings you would expect in a higher-rated hotel. This hotel is on a University Campus and it unfortunately took me back to my student days in a Halls of Residence - drunk guests going in and out all night, shouting in the corridor, and having parties in their room. I don't know if there are actual students in this hotel, but this is certainly what it seemed like. At one point I asked a group to be quiet and got a mouthful from one particularly pleasant individual, so had to ask security to come up. The heating pipes in our room were also clattering loudly and incessantly all night. At about 2.30am, with the noise of the pipes and the other guests making sleep entirely impossible, I went downstairs to ask for an alternative room. This was provided promptly and without fuss, and the new room was much quieter, but it was still almost 4am before I managed to get any sleep. I also did not appreciate having to park my car in an area where there were locals smoking illicit substances in the corner of the car park. I informed reception of this, who did not seem phased at all and simply said that there was not a lot they could do! Overall, I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone unless you want to re-experience your student days

Good quality business style hotel

Posted 17-Apr-2016 on Hotels
Clean and convenient, a good quality conference/business hotel. The reception staff are particularly helpful. There is a carpark (with a charge) but you are supposed to call and book it before arrival, which I didn't realise, the security man was also very helpful and let me in and explained i had to tell reception and pay to avoid getting a ticket. The lovely victorian pool is a 2 min walk. It is a busy area with students during the day but was quiet at night.

Short stay whilst we visited the NIA, excellent location and lovely rooms, £5 taxi available to the NIA and well within walking distance of Bullring and city centre. Parking available nearby and nice setting in middle of university campus. Beds could do with being a bit higher and a little comfier but they weren't uncomfortable to sleep on and extra pillows in room. Huge flatscreen TV with limited channels. Very thin walls and can hear anyone talking in the corridor outside the room but overall a nice place to get heads down for a night after a gig at NIA.

Good hotel but not the vision of luxury we hoped

Posted 04-Apr-2016 on Hotels
We were visiting friends in Birmingham. We are Londoners and wanted a hotel in the centre so we could visit the local bars and sights. The hotel staff were lovely but the hotel itself was in fact in s business school which was not particularly cool and definitely not upmarket. The pool looked amazing but as it wasn't in the hotel we didn't use it which was a shame. The first room had a door that didn't lock (!!) so we were immediately moved without any fuss and went into a far nicer room (on the 'upper' fifth floor). The hotels location was decent enough though bang in the middle of a student campus - although we went in the Easter holidays do was very quiet. Not bad hotel but we'd probably stay in a more central location next time with everything in one building.

the hotel was clean comfortable welcoming and modern in design. the car parking was however not the best and a little confusing. Having located the hotel easily we were provided a map on how to locate the car park which was not so straight forward but manageable. I think some people would have found it difficult to locate. staff courteous and welcoming

Nice hotel close to the city centre and on campus of Aston university. Good place for dinner.
