This hotel is in a great location, close to the station, shops, bars and restaurants and the Utilita arena. |The rooms were very clean, bed comfortable and bathroom a good size with a decent walk in shower. Only downside for us was that our room (406) was next to the lift so we could hear it going up and down and pinging when it stopped on our floor. Not much of a big deal as we did sleep ok. |Breakfast was great with plenty of choice including gluten free options. Everything is self service so great for that second helping. |Definitely stay here again if going to do an overnight in Brum.

This hotel is very modern and nicely decorated. The room was spacious and very clean, very nice modern bathroom and nice large walk in shower. The breakfast and reception area are nice too, very modern and airy, on the first floor of the building. The breakfast is pretty standard, the usual buffet style with the standard hot and cold items for full English or continental. The staff were great throughout. Great value hotel for the quality you get, would recommend. Only downside is that I didn’t have a specified room so I got a twin, would have been nice to have a double since I was traveling alone.
