... and stopped at Brewood to get some shopping. The canal here is lined both sides with tall trees; heaven for kingfishers. We were lulled into a false sense of security.
A mile or so further on, we went through a bridge and suddenly the wind hit us from the left - there was a big break in the trees so our wind break had temporarily vanished. We were going past moored boats so were moving in tick over and the wind blew us over onto the moored boats. ...
Off we go into town with oz to make sure they got from moore street to new street. Two cathedrals, two towers, 275 in york....325 in durham Viking tour done, sherry in the room....johnnie walker for lunch. Up and out today.... Cotswolds, roman villas, tourists, chocolate box pictures. The wind is ...
... from going around one round-about a couple of times the journey is un-eventful. We had allowed 3 1/2 hours, expecting traffic issues but it only takes us about 2 1/4 hours and then we drop the cars off and are ferried to Terminal 4. A quick coffee and I look through the duty-free for some Glenfiddich Caoran but to my (and Bryony's) great disappointment I was told that it is no ...
... hardy lot and when the rain stops, they work feverishly to get us underway. 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!

... even done something so bold as we did. We talked and laughed and reminisced about all of the good moments and the bad ones too. About how not a day goes by where Leandra doesn't trip over or fall over or trip and fall and how I can't manage to get through a period of 24 whole hours without the word grovvy rolling off my tongue. I thank the world everyday that I could have experienced every single moment, the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, the contentment and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Styles Birmingham Centre
Good central location for nia and symphony hall but nice and quiet.Room was clean, bed comfortable and the included continental breakfast very adequate.Good value would use this hotel again.
Quiet and cool
Stayed here for a week while taking a short course at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, which was about a ten minute walk away. Despite seeming pretty full, it is the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in! And the room was blissfully airconditioned in what turned out to be a very hot week indeed. The room was clean, bright, modern and well thought out with a convenient place for everything and a very comfortable bed. There was an ice machine in the lobby and the continental breakfast was perfectly adequate considering it's included in the room price. Very centrally located with everything you could want in easy walking distance. Paid £69 a night and was more than satisfied. Would definitely choose it again.
First choice budget hotel in Birmingham City Centre
The Express By Holiday Inn in Birmingham City Centre is a first choice budget hotel and I strongly recommend it.
I booked a double room through internet for 6 nights in June 2005. The Hotel's location is very convenient close to the ICC, the room was clear, nice decorated and quiet, the staff very friendly and the check out instant. The breakfast is basic continental.
Superb Value for Money
This hotel is the best value for money I have yet stayed in, and I've stayed in a few. The rooms were beautiful. The location was superb, as long as you go the right way out of the lobby. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Although not really my kind of breakfast it was great value for money and I would go again tomorrow.

Very good value and location
I've stayed here now on a number of occaisons and find it very comfortable and very good value for a city centre hotel. The staff on reception are excellent and very helpful.
The rooms are adequate for the price and I always sleep well here as the hotel, whilst central is, in a side street and very quiet.
Breakfast is a bit basic but very good value for money.
Happily recommend this to business users, tourists and shoppers alike.
Clean and comfortable, good value for money
This hotel is in a great central location, staff very friendly and quick check in and check out. Free newspapers a good touch, self service breakfast fine. Rooms a good size for the money. Lots of space int the car park underneath the hotel.
Nice Place -good location
In late February 2005 I stayed at the Express by Holiday Inn. The front desk staff were helpful and polite. The room was nice and quite clean. In addition, the included breakfast was good.
I would recommend the hotel and the location is good. For the area the price is reasonable.
We stayed at the Express By Holiday Inn for a week in July 2003 and found it to be a good value. The hotel is new and the rooms are bright and extremely spacious. The included continental breakfast offered great variety and quality. Located on a quiet street, just a short walk from the city centre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for its excellent comfort and value.
Good value, good location
I stayed at this hotel recently for 2 nights. Good location, just a short walk to the city centre. Staff were friendly, room was clean (no bath - just shower cubicle). I paid £65 per night including buffet breakfast and would definitely stay here again. No frills, but a good hotel and value for money. Only complaint is the £10 per '24 hours' parking charge - very excessive!
