... To do this we need many things, not least of which is a strong dependable workhorse to get us around and arguably no better vehicle exists for this than a Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series. So, here's a picture of our latest acquisition. It's nearly 20 years old and has done nearly 167,000 miles and still going strong. It's in standard shape right now and will be base lined for a long trip and have few modifications to ...

Having checked with the photo taker the classic and insightful comment came back that "he was taking a lot of photos in the hope of taking one with the hope that Charles would not be talking". Collapsed cyclists followed in roars of laughter, end of photo session.... Vince: Today we were not in a rush to get out.

They are a well-established ska/punk/reggae band performing their own songs alongside classics and they kicked the day of perfectly with a lively set that could easily have gone on for another hour. They were followed by relative newcomers (although with plenty of experienced members) from Coventry, Barb'd Wire who had plenty of fans in evidence wearing their black & white t-shirts. They kept the mood going perfectly and despite the fact that it ...

It was good but I enjoyed hearing “Promises”, “Autonomy”, “What do I get” and especially “Boredom” more. I barely noticed the bit of rain that came down in the middle of the set.

... They have four glasshouses, the entrance in fact opens straight into one of them - the tropical plants section and it was like we never left Brunei, lol. There was even the fern that Babah used to keep on growing but kept on getting attacked by insects (or maybe fungus...) and dying. They were nice and healthy here though. They are apparently a special hybrid of tree fern that came about as an ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Nitenite Birmingham

    Location Location Location

    from

    Have just returned from a two-night city break at the Nitenite Hotel Birmingham. I knew the room was going to be small but it was so small I found it funny. We could even get our Christmas shopping in the room with us The room was spotlessly clean and perfectly formed, bed comfortable, TV large, shower clean and powerful. I found the air con a bit warm though and craved fresh air each morning. But having said that the location was excellent in the city centre close to the bars, shops and restaurants. I paid the Internet rate of 39 per night, which was good value. I would use this hotel / chain again for city breaks when most of the day and night we would be out of the room. If you just want a bed and shower this is for you.

    Took some getting used to but not bad!

    from

    There's no doubt about it, the rooms at nitenite are teeny tiny so make sure you know your companion well before you share a room here! It took a bit of getting used to but there is loads of room under the bed to stash bags and suitcases. The room was spotless and the fittings are of a high standard. I think I could only stay here for one night at a time though given that it is so small. The location is excellent - just round the corner from the Mailbox and a short walk to Brindley Place and the NIA. There is a Tesco Metro at the Mailbox if you want to pick up some bottled water (they don't have any in the vending machine in the hotel). The bed was super comfortable and it was a bit odd having to check the weather outside by switching on the telly (live shots of Brum on the plasma screen) but, all in all, not a bad experience and excellent value at £49.95.

    Compact and bijoux

    from

    As a business traveller staying on my own for the odd single night this hotel is ideal.

    Wonderful Experience

    from

    I have previously stayed at the Hyatt in Birmingham which is nice but this time I was on my own and didn't have anyone to share the expense with. The room was £49.95 and I booked via their website. The hotel is just round the corner from the Hyatt on Holliday Street and is literally 2 mins from New Street station (follow signs to the Mailbox). Reception was modern and spacious and receptionists were very friendly and efficient. They explained the control panel and gave me a keycard. The entire hotel is brand new and everything feels very good quality. The room itself is very compact but has everything you could want. The TV turns itself on to a view of Birmingham City Centre when you put your card into the control panel to control the lights. The lights never seem to be too bright in fact there are many combinations you can have with them. There are even lights under the bed. The desk is small but adequate with a small kettle, plastic mug and sachets of organic tea/coffee tucked into a cubby in the wall. There are 2 power points next to the desk. The TV has the usual terrestrial channels plus pay movies which cost £7.95 each and get charged to your bill. They also had BBC3, ITV2, The Hits, UK History, Sports channels. The bed was a good size and very comfortable with quality white cotton sheets and duvet and 2 pillows. There were 2 hangers on the wall plus 1 coat hook on the back of the door as there is no space for a wardrobe. I did not hear any noise while I was staying there but I was only there for a night out and I would not recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to spend significant time in the hotel room other than sleeping and getting ready. There was a lot of space under the bed for suitcases, shoes etc. The air conditioner was also under the bed and kept the room nice and cool. The bathroom is also small and decked out in wet room style. The glass door from the bathroom to the bedroom closes with a magnet so you have to be delicate with it in order to get it to stay closed. The shower was lovely and big hansgrohe pan head power shower. The sink was small but adequate and there was a wall mounted bin and a modern toilet. The toiletries were 1 small shower gel (not very nice) and 1 small shampoo and 1 toilet roll. I would have liked a piece of soap for washing hands. There were 2 small-ish bath towels supplied which would be fine for 1 shower but not really enough for 2. There was a big mirror in the bathroom and a large-ish one above the desk in the bedroom. No face-cloths were provided. The doors were open at 3am when I came back from my night out but the keycard I was told opens the door anyway. Check out is at noon and as there are no windows in the room you can sleep a long time without the distraction of the sun. In fact it would be easy to lose track of time if you did not set an alarm. I was not distracted by the panel as if you press the nitenite button it dims the panel. There was an ironing room opposite my room which you open with your keycard which would be useful if you can't hang everything up. I would definitely stay there again. Checking out was quick and easy and the receptionists were again lovely and offered to get me a taxi. I did not feel the slightest bit claustrophobic and in fact felt lovely and secure in my little oasis in the city.

    Interesting for single traveller

    from

    The other reviews give a good overall picture. If there are two of you it might seem rather cramped, and you need to be in a relationship where one of you is happy to climb over the other to get out of bed! The green control panel has a dimming function I managed to fine, so that was okay. The menu of tv/radio claimed they had Radio 3 so I was looking forward to listening to the Prom concert, but they were not telling the truth, it was another station - Radio Bloke I think. There was no soap in the bathroom, very poor I thought, Sainsburys on Broad Street to the rescue. Staff said there was no supposed to be any. Staff didn't know if the film channels were free, eventually rang someone who told them, and me, it was 7.50.

    Shoe box chic!

    from

    My husband and I have just returned from a 1 night break at Nitenite. I don't think we could have stayed in the shoebox for any longer than 1 night!

    Got the concept, just wasn't for me!

    from

    I can understand how & why the concept works. It's easy to see how someone who spends little time in their room would find this extremely good value. A 2 night stay would be maximum for most people as there is no drawer space and only 2 cute coat hangers on the wall.

    Loved the room

    from

    This hotel is fantastic the concept was a bit of a shock when i first arrived but once i spent time in the room i really started to love it. Being a lady traveller i thought the room gave a sence of security because they are so snug. I thought the 42 inch Plasma is amazing enjoyed lying in bed watching the movies. Breakfast was great vaule for money at just 5 for continental. The receptionist are very friendly and extremely helpful and i felt very relaxed walking into the hotel. There were no problem with the shower door which stayed shut nitenite is in a fantastic location and was extremely closed to new street station. I would recommend nitenite to anybody and i can't wait to return.

    OK if you like small!

    from

    Stayed in the NiteNite for one night and not sure it is an experience I would repeat in a hurry. Whilst hotel and rooms are very nicely decorated it definately would not suit anyone who is claustraphobic in any way.
