We're leaving on a jet plane!

A travel blog entry by john-and-anne


... 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.... (Cos) we're leaving on a jet plane...... ...

A trip to the castle

A travel blog entry by ldschaub


... There was a great view. The castle wasn't nearly as impressive as some but it was a nice day and free! The birthday party stormed the castle to look for the chocolate coins one of the parents had just placed there so we decided to leave.
On our way out we decided to take a less muddy path through town. We stopped by the town center and grabbed a cup of iced coffee and a snack. It was a good afternoon and a nice way to start my way back in the ...

Shakespeare's Home

A travel blog entry by ldschaub


... 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

A travel blog entry by lesdowson


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 ...

Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

... great start to seeing the world i know) a man crossed my path, dressed in his smartest birthday suit. To save himself from grace he had tastefully covered his swim suit area with two small sheets of cardboard, and was patrolling the streets for cigarette butts. However it took several hours, and a few thousand miles for this realisation to sink in. During the moment, it was taken in ...

    Great value


    This hotel is great value for money. The rooms are basic and small; perhaps more like ship cabins than traditional rooms. They can sleep up to three people in reasonable comfort (with a double bed and a bunk bed above). It's best to see it as a good hostel rather than a mediocre hotel. I was impressed by the pleasant manner of the staff, the free secure car park and free wi-fi. Not somewhere you'd go for a holiday but great value for a functional stopover after a night out in the town. Gets an excellent rating from me based on value for money rather than luxury.

    Clean and convenient


    Me and my boyfriend stayed in the hotel when we visited Birmingham to go christmas shopping. The hotel itself was easy to find although i would get the directions from the aa route planner, rather than relying on the hotels directions.

    Great little place


    This place is the easyjet of hotels offering no frills accomadation.

    The room is bright with double bed, desk and tv. No tea facilities in room. Had its own heating/aircon system. The shower is in the main room with a perspex door so be warned only to use a shared room if you dont mind your room mate seeing your ----

    The breakfast is danish, cereal and toast but good and have as much as you like. No bar or catering facilities but lots of surrounding restaurants. If you need somewhere to rest your head this is the place although its def not for those special weekends or events. Free car parking at rear of hotel.

    Very Good Value for Money


    When my friend first told me about this hotel, I was amazed that you could get a room for £35 that sleeps 3 ppl. Location of this hotel is great, although we did have trouble finding it. Hotel Parking is very limited so if you want to take advantage of their car park, try and check in early.

    Flying visit


    Made a flying visit to this etap last night. Got there late. Unfortunately my reservation hadn't come through but that wasn't a problem. The lady on the desk checked me in efficienly and quickly. The room was basic as I expected but the bed was ok, the room clean and the hotel quiet. nothing fancy but I was thoroughly satisfied with my stay, 35, a bargain. Thanks.

    More like student halls of residence than a hotel


    We just returned from a Saturday night stay at the etap hotel, and I am glad that we did not have to stay any longer.

    Not bad!


    Not at all bad for what you pay.

    its within walking distance of the bullring and new street station (about 10mins).

    Its clean and comfortable. we got a taxi to broad street but it didnt cost much and recption was more than happy to call the taxi for us.

    Just be aware that when you step out of the shower you step back in to the main room!

    Overall extremly good value for money and hey you get what you pay for,

    Just the job.


    This hotel is great. It is very inexpensive. Birmingham is a very noisy place because the traffic is fast moving and it is the city of the car with roads going in all directions right through the heart of the place. The top three reasons in my book for a hotel are, one - quiet, two - quiet, and three - quiet. There are no quiet hotels in the city centre. This hotel is right on the A38 but the double glazing is superb. Keep the window closed and you will have perfect silence. This may prove to be a problem in the hot weather because you would need to switch on the air conditioning which is also noisy, so you tolerate the noise or suffer the heat. In the winter I wouldn't stay there because I couldn't stand the noise of the air conditioning. It should be fine in the spring and autumn but be sure to ask for a quiet room if you are staying there at a weekend as it is favourite with youngsters in partying mood.

    OK for budget travelers


    Departing from the premise this is a budget Hotel you must not expect any fancy commodities from this one.

    Fine for a weekend


    Just spent a weekend here whilst visiting relatives and was pleasantly surprised by the small but adequate room- double bed with a single bunk over. Very good value for 3! Wash basin in corner and separate shower and toilet.

    Good security as they are near the city centre and clubbers come and stay over once they have had enough. Most of the hotel is taken over by a mix of travellers of all ages. There were also lots of Crufts candidates with lovely dogs! Pity some of them let the dogs excercise in the car park if you know what I mean.

    Simple buffet breakfast for 2.50 with sandwiches, hot drinks and other alternatives available 24 hours. The pub next door did full English very reasonably too.
