We woke to very heavy rain which didn't stop till about midday so we decided to stay put. Mid afternoon, the sky was full of very heavy cloud with the odd bit of sun and we thought we would go further on. While getting the boat ready we realised just how strong the wind was, so we stayed put till morning.
We set off quite early for us and the water was fairly still. The wind had dropped considerably. We set off ...
Off we go into town with oz to make sure they got from moore street to new street.

I say goodbye to Col and Gill as they will be catching the onward flight to Brisbane around 10:15 and after gathering my bags - and not even seeing any customs area - catch the KLIA express train into KL Sentral. From there its only a short walk to my hotel.

We are going to play a game comprising 25 overs an innings, retire at 20 and 4 overs per bowler and got under way around 2.40pm. Recognising the problems of packing wet gear for a 24 hour flight home, the Cannock and Rugeley lads very kindly provided a maroon kit for the visitors to wear, much to the delight of the Queenslanders!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Birmingham Brindleyplace
Great value for money!!!!!!!!
Overall this hotel was of a very high standard. The room we had was very spacious, clean and modern. The staff were friendly and the location (5mins from Broad Street) was excellent. The price I managed to get was an amazing price of £37.50 per person for a weekend night. I would certainly stay here again.
Rooms spoiled an otherwise good hotel
The staff here are very friendly and attentive, breakfasts are good too however the cleanliness of the rooms left a bit to be desired, the bedding was stained and spill marks on furniture had not been cleaned.
Very modern - a nice change!
We stayed here the Sunday of the second bank holiday weekend (2004). The hotel is very nice and if you are not a fan of chintzy, traditional hotels this is the place to stay. It has very modern fittings and decoration and the shower / bathroom was great, also nice touches like a CD player and funky tolietries etc. The room we stayed in was not enormous but I would rather sacrifice space and have such nice furnishings and fittings. IT had effective aircon (which was nice as it was dead hot).
The precinct it is in looks like some really new re-development around a canal and there are coffee shops and bars/restaurants are very close at hand. Parking was close but the advertised "discount" you get is not that great so bank on forking out a bit but hey, this is central parking in a biggish city after all. The girl at the front desk was very, very friendly and apart from a requested ironing board being a bit long in coming (although not unreasonably so, and being Pride weekend I think they were fully booked and probably very busy) from room service, service was great. We didn't eat at the hotel but the food options looked good. They do a deal on Sunday nights and we paid only £55 for a double which is absolutely a bargain for such a high quality hotel. Whilst I wouldn't choose this hotel for a very special ocassion, it was brilliant for a quick visit to see friends and I imagine would be really handy for business trips. We definately would stay here again.
Early bleeping rise
The hotel facilities, location etc are great. But I have stayed twice and on both occasions have been woken by a little road sweeper scurrying about at the front of the hotel reception. Every time it reverses, which is a lot, a warning reversing bleeper goes off. At 5am this is most annoying. Happening once I shug it off, twice and I stay somewhere else - (City IBIS if you want to know - not as pleasant but full night sleep and cheaper). I know this isn't the fault of the hotel, but I need my beauty sleep and as I found there are other choices.
Also 50GBP quoted is way cheaper than I have actually had pay even with company discount. 1st time £79, second time £87 (not inc drinks, telephone etc)
A bit of a bargain
Very good indeed considering the price. But do be aware that rooms don't necessarily have a bath. It didn't bother me, but if you are desperate for a soak then you might want to reconsider. The location is very good, the service in the bar and restaurant were excellent and the room was very nice. No complaints at all - we would use it again with no problems.
Best value for money in Birmingham
This places offers the best value for money in Birmingham. For £60 per weekend night you get a modern, spacious, soundproofed bedroom with air-conditioning, a cd player, a powerful shower and a full English Breakfast in the morning. The public areas are impressive with an excellent bar and terrace. The staff are cheerful and do all they can to help you. Considering the room only rate at the grotty Premierlodge next door is £56 I really have no idea why anyone would stay anywhere else in Birmingham. Highly recommended!
Loved the City Inn
Have just returned from a weekend spent at this great hotel in Birmingham. We arrived in Birmingham early on the Saturday, (09:30), and we were allowed to check in straight away.
The hotel is located in an area called Brindley Place which is jammed packed with bars, restaurants and entertainment. The excellent shopping facilities of Birmingham are located about a 10 minute walk away.
The hotel is very modern in design. The rooms are bright with floor to ceiling windows, modern furniture and the usual amenities. A nice touch is the 'goodie box' containing Doritos, Dairy Milk and Celebrations. This would be good for a midnight feast. My only complaint about the room was the size of the bathroom; it was tiny and did not contain a bath - although the toiletries were nice.
The hotel bar is really nice with a good selection of cocktails and really squashy sofas to chill out in.
We had breakfast in bed which was delivered right on time. It was fab and absolutely massive. Bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, croissants, pain au chocolate, the most fabulous almond croissants and hot chocolate. Yum!
Altogether a really nice stay/ hotel and a bargain at £85 per night including beakfast and VAT!
Every Business Trip to Birmingham our company uses City Inn
We have used this hotel for every business trip since we found them 2 years ago. (approx 10 visits)The only complaint is we could not stay longer!

Good hotel, Great location.
Stayed here one night to see Miss Saigon. Staff very nice and the room was ready on arrival early pm. The room was lovely and cleanliness was excellent. Did not eat here but the restaurant looked as good as the rest of the hotel. Parked the car in the award winning multi story next door without any problems and its location in the newly developed Bridley Place could not be better.
I stayed at the City Inn on 26-07-03 for my Anniversary. I asked for a double room but instead was given 2 single beds. I asked for a newspaper which was never delivered even when I asked a member of staff to get one. As I was sleeping in my room a lady entered the room with her swipe card and asked me why I was still in the room (she didnt know I had booked for 2 nights), when I complained to reception they said they would get back to me and I was confirmed for two nights but I never heard from them again. Avoid this hotel and try one of the other hotels Birmingham has to offer. Room service was slow and the incorrect order was given.
