What are we doing?

As of today, not much much other than the usual. I have a new client, Halfords, so that's why I'm in Birmingham travelling home each weekend. However, the plan is that from around May next year, we go off driving around the European land mass visiting hot countries when it's cooler there and colder countries when it's hotter. We are spending the next few months planning so there's not much detail to be seen here yet. Watch this ...

Flattest but longest day!

Charles: Well the big hills day is now behind us, thank goodness for that, as my legs are absolutely shattered. Nice rolling hills today with lots of flat smooth roads, although Graham does insist on taking us up some real rough old roads if we're having it too easy. No punctures or breakdowns today so our average speed increased to 15 mph. My tip from Graham today is "don't just eat one snack bar when you can have two" ...

... indie rock band who have been on the scene for years and have done pretty well, with a new album “TV en Francais” this year were the penultimate act on the stage. I didn’t mind their stuff at all. I would have enjoyed it more, perhaps, had I spent some time listening to their music before the festival but time is always precious and I’d spent some of it revising Buzzcocks. Pleasant enough in the late evening sun and definitely not lacking energy.

... it was suddenly borderline whether she would need it or not. Our first priority was to get some ciders from the beer tent, after which we walked down to the main stage where Stone Foundation were finishing off their set. They sounded pretty good and we were sorry that the combination of weather and delayed trains had prevented us from seeing more.

Next up was The Selecter, a band that I had enjoyed a lot during the 2-tone Revival era in the very ...

... Eat Sushi buffet at Woktastic. For (I think) about 12 pounds, you can grab as many plates of sushi as you wish from the conveyor belt. That sounds pretty decent to me. I'm not a huge sushi fan so I had the ala-carte option. The sushi is apparently not excellent, but definitely more than edible. For that price, you can't go wrong really.

Since we had a couple of days before Qawi's graduation ceremony, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Malmaison Birmingham

    A nice place to stay...if you avoid the staff!

    from

    I often have to travel to Birmingham on business and always try and get my company to book me into the Malmaison. I love the stylish rooms and comfortable beds, and the breakfast is very nice. I've always found the staff on reception to be aloof though, and they're not the most competant in the world. However the restaurant and bar staff always seem to be helpful if a little unfriendly.

    I've only ever stayed in the standard rooms, but they have always been huge, clean and comfortable. The wide screen TV and CD/MD hi-fi's in each room are a nice touch.

    Good - if thats what you are after

    from

    This is the 4th time in a year we have stayed here. The rooms are modern and fairly simple. All seem to vary in size. We just stayed in an extra large room for an extra £40 which was much bigger with 2 sofas but not special. I would be interested in seeing a suite for an extra £20. All room have large tvs cds and well stocked minibar - good bathrooms aswell. The bar serves food all day. The burgers are great. Restaurant looks a little pricey for what it is and is next to the bar which gets really busy.

    THe worst stay in my life

    from

    The worst hotel ever, pretencious, very unfriendly & unhelpfull staff, dirty rooms. The nice decor does not compensate for such a horrid treatment

    Amazing

    from

    Wow. Boyfriend booked us into a suite here and it was amazing. Huuuuuuuuge room, very smart, clean, chic (yet also comfy). Had a massive king size bed, the longest sofa I've ever seen and a bunch of comfy chairs too Can't say enough good things about it! The jacuzzi/sauna/steam room area is fantastic - lots of 'mood' lighting which changes colour every few minutes - v different to anything I've ever seen before. There's also an adjoining relaxation room which has huge (electric) massage chairs, loads of candles and relaxing music - was a wrench to leave! For a weekend of pure relaxation it is absolutely perfect!

    Very good, but no X-factor

    from

    My wife and I stayed in one of the suites at Malmaison.

    Good points:

    Very large room

    Excellent bathroom

    Very friendly staff, except at reception - the lady dealing with us seemed more interested in the computer screen than us.

    Convenient location

    Excellent sound-proofing

    Bad points:

    Niggling mistakes - room was only set up for 1 person, so we had to asked for more towls etc.; had to send food back to kitchen; but these were all dealt with very efficiently.

    Overall a very good hotel, but didn't have any particular X-factor to make it truly memorable.

    Amazing style and convenience

    from

    Had a late night in Birmingham and couldn't get a train back to London. Search for three hotels and was directed to MalMaison. Imagine the W hotel in the US, but without the annoying staff. Great service, great bar, excellent room. I travel frequently for business, so this was a nice treat. Price was a bit high for Birmingham, but well worth it.

    Poor hotel rooms and bad service

    from

    Dull dark brown rooms, tiny gym, 50 minutes for room service and not a smile to be seen. Not at all a nice experience

    Malmaison (The Mailbox)

    from

    Malmaison Hotel in Birmingham. Very nice restaurant, bar, spa with friendly staff. Upscale restaurants and shops next door.

    Chic hotel, great location

    from

    What a lovely hotel! My boyfriend and I stayed here at the weekend in an open plan king size suite and I agree with the last reviewer in that it was beautiful. It looked very chic and was very spacious. The bed was incredibly comfortable and cozy. We ordered some room service which was very quick and the food yummy. We also had breakfast in bed which came in the form of a huge box left outside your door with fresh pastries, fruit salad and cereal (at ?9.95 p/p). Having been to the malmaison in manchester and experienced the same high quality I would definitely stay at this chain again.

    Had one of the best rooms.....worth every penny!!!!!

    from

    had a kingsize suite...was really really worth it...beautiful decor, outstanding size room! will definatly stay there again in one of them rooms.
