    Comfortable stay

    We came to Birmingham for a funeral so stayed in the hotel where the wake was held. We were able to check in early - to a room with a bathtub as requested. It was a very comfortable room and we were able to have lunch before going to the funeral. The only problem preventing us from giving top marks to this hotel was a problem with the heating - the radiators were cold. However, an electric heater was provided which did the job! The bathroom was warm with a heated towel rail. In fact the bathroom was luxurious. Breakfast the following morning was excellent -cooked to order.

    Value for money

    Rooms a bit dated but clean and tidy. Good powerful shower, but the fixed shower head was at my shoulder height (I’m 6’2”). Food in the bar was fine and average prices I guess. Breakfast was the same. I would stay again
