... walk out the door.... (Cos') We're leaving on a jet plane, Six weeks before we're home again. You know when we come back we'll have a lot to say.... We could email you, we could text you too. We might even try to FaceTime you, But we'd rather travel far and go explore.... So kiss us and wave to us, Tell us not to make a fuss, Hug us twice and then we' say no more....

A trip to the castle

A travel blog entry by ldschaub

Today was the warmest day yet! Probably 17C! That meant we were going to take an outdoor adventure for sure! We walked to and from the gym to enjoy the sun. After the gym and getting ready we decided to go to Stafford castle. The castle was about a 2 mile walk down a foot path. The foot path starts right behind our apartment so it was an easy way to get there. The walking path was full of families and people walking their dogs. We walked past a ...

Shakespeare's Home

... like spokes on a wheel, all radiating from a huge round about. As long as you could find your way back to that round about, you would never be lost. We kept walking past numerous clothing stores, book stores and of course tea shops. We finally got to Shakespeare's birthday place, a house which has been a little restored but for the most part left the same as it was. If you weren't looking for it, you probably wouldn't have noticed that it was a point of interest. It ...

First day

11.34 from York, coppers everywhere, weather getting better by the hour. Train to brum delayed and onward train cancelled, turning into a long trip but weather now glorious. Brums rough as ever, Moor street very old worldly. Got on train eventually an hour late. B&B nice, excited to get started. Missing my superbly fit and awesome ...

    Ok.... At The Right Price....

    from

    This is not a bad hotel in a good location for night life and shopping. I would agree about the NCP car park but I come to Birmimgham by train and its a short walk to the hotel which is fine.

    Some of the rooms are shabby and need refurbishment but the upgraded rooms are nice and if you are just looking for a decent place to sleep I would recommend here.

    The breakfast is very good and room service when I have had it is also good. All this said I would not stay here when they are charging full rates or anywhere near them. I have found some great rates on their website and sometimes if you call the hotel you can negotiate a good rate.

    All in all I would recommend...

    Food OK --- otherwise poor value

    from

    After a bad experience with this hotel chain in Paris I vowed never to stay in a Holiday Inn again. But I was booked into this one for a conference so had no choice. My expectations of the rooms were realised --it was small, shabby and extremely noisy. I have stayed in hotels in the centre of Munich, Berlin, Bergamo, Bari, Genoa and Barcelona without any disturbance because of triple-glazing. Yet Holiday Inn can't be bothered to upgrade this mediocre hotel. The plus points --- the breakfast was pretty good and the chef would flourish in a better environment. And the staff were very obliging. They, too, deserve somewhere better.

    Not bad

    from

    Not a bad place to stay over for a night out in Brum, centrally located and very handy for the gay village.

    Our room, on the second floor was in need of a refurb, but it was clean and the bathroom was fine.

    Breakfast is good with a good buffet selection and as much to eat as you want.

    Holiday Inn should invest some of cash in this place though.

    All our yesterdays

    from

    I stayed in Room 301 for 2 nights in the middle of August. If you've never been to the hotel before and are driving, it's easy to miss as the sign at the front is obscured by a tree. There's an NCP car park close to the hotel, and this doesn't inspire a safe feeling, particularly in the evening. The walk from the car park to the hotel is along a back alley, and past some dustbins!

    At least the mouse liked it !

    from

    Not a good choice - reception had 'lost' our reservation and treated us to the third degree treatment as if it was our fault, or we were lying. It was very very badly handled.

    Totally unhelpful and unwelcoming, so the poor quality room desperate for a refurb was not a surprise.

    It would really help to have English speaking staff on reception - much of the poor attitude seems to go with staff from other (East European) countries where clearly procedures are more important than customers.

    Never mind, the mouse my colleague saw in the restaurant obviously thinks it's agood place to eat !

    My second favourite Birmingham hotel...

    from

    It's hard to say exactly why I like this hotel so much - probably location mostly.

    Pokey, shabby and slow

    from

    Stayed in the hotel for 1 night on a business trip. I was given a single unrefurbished room. Cramped and shabby with a very worn bathroom - I've been in better student digs! The breakfast is good but crowded. Check in and out took forever. I'm sure there are better hotels to be had for similar prices in Birmingham.

    Not Bad at the Right Price

    from

    This is a perfectly reasonable stop-over place but is nothing special.

    A 3 star hotel

    from

    This hotel was very good for "teletext" offers - which offer inexpensive rooms with breakfast.

    Good Solid 3-Star Hotel

    from

    This hotel is a bit of a bargain! Compared to some of the 'three star' hotels found along the Hadley Road this place really stands out. By booking online you can secure a standard room for about £40 - excellent value considering you're in the heart of the city. Within a five minute walk you can reach the new BullRing shopping centre, the main city centre shops, New Street railway station, the chinese quarter and the gay village - pretty much something for everyone then! The public areas of the hotel are refurbished and modern as are the superior rooms. The standard rooms are pretty dated - but remember you'll be paying less than most lodge style accommodations. My only gripes with the place are the fact that the superior rooms are no larger than the standard rooms - they just have modern decor and come with a few extras and the fact that the superior rooms are located on the lowest floor rather than the highest seems a shame - certainly no views to be found! Overall this place fits the bill perfectly for a no frills stay in the heart of the city.
