... as we will be camping in between hotel stays. The plan is to upgrade and renew a few of the things that wear out over time so we end up with something über reliable. For those who know a thing or two about 4x4 cars, this has full time 4 wheel drive, electronic diff locks leather seats and will seat 8 comfortably, though in our case it will be two plus a boot full of things you need when doing a trip like this.

... travelled through almost 700 miles of the UK's most spectacular countryside today we reached the pinnacle of picnic spots and had lunch on a grass verge in the middle of a housing estate. As we parked the 4X4 and laid down our tarpaulin, many net curtains started to twitch. They must have thought many caravans and horses would follow. Ironically around the corner from our chosen comfort spot there was a huge ...

... For me, the whole set could have been like that and it would have been much better.

Last year at Godiva we went to see Neville Staple, former leading light of Specials aka/Fun Boy Three, not really knowing what to expect. I understand why musicians, singers and song-writers don’t always want to be doing stuff that they were famous for 30 or more years ago, especially when they continue to produce new material that they want people to hear but at the same time at ...

... wet. It’s still a decent walk from the entrance to the festival arena but it was still teeming down when I went through security so I headed straight to the nearest shelter, the main tent where an evening featuring local rock bands was underway. I’m guessing that the weather had done the performers some favours and increased the size of their audience somewhat. The band I watched was actually pretty good and according to MC Johnny Doom (that might not ...

... kind of cool, you could also go up to the 9th floor and have a view over the city of Birmingham. I'm always up for that kind of view so off to the top of the library we went! Was a pretty nice view, I suppose, although it looks like any other city from the top. It was a good opportunity for me to try out the polarising filter for the camera, and it was decent. The end. XD Not much to say about a library ...

    Nice & pleasent

    from

    me & my partner stayed at the novotel on the 29th jan we arrived to a very polite receptionist who gave us everything we needed to know in detail & then when we arrived at our room it was very nice, spacious clean, the bed was comfy...everything was perfect we only stayed for one night but i wish we could of stayed for more. well worth the price & breakfast was included which was lovely & a good range of choice, even yoghurts!!!

    me & my partner would defo give this hotel 10/10

    Brill weekend

    from

    we have just returned from the novotel birmingham were we enjoyed an overnight stay. this was our second visit and we were even more impressed than last time. the rooms have all been redecorated in nice neutral tones and everything was spotlessly clean, the breakfast is superb with an excellent selection of fresh fruit,breads,cereal and the usual choice of traditional english bacon ,eggs ,sausage etc. the hotel is ideally placed for the nia arena and all the bars and restaurants of broad st. overall it makes a good base for for a few days away. one word of warning there is a big price difference depending on who you book with. we booked through superbreaks and four adults in two double rooms with full breakfast paid less than the price of a double room booked through the hotel with breakfast an extra £12.00 each so check out the bargains

    Very Good

    from

    Very nice hotel, Prices are great. Better than when we stayed at the Hilton!!! Staff are pleasent, food was great and the rooms and bathroom were very spacious. great for a nite or two stay!!

    Disappointing

    from

    We stayed at the Novotel for 2 nights in May 05. The first room we checked into was totally appalling. It was grubby and dark and the bath had dark hairs in it! The room was so bad we didn't even want to sit down. When we complained we were told we could move to a recently renovated room but this would cost us an extra £15 per night. Having already paid £140 per night (for a room worth £20) we were not very happy about the additional charge but could not possible stay where we were. We paid the extra and moved rooms. The new room was great but not anything special, to be honest it was what we expected in the first place for £140!!

    Over priced mediocre hotel - you can do better

    from

    I've stayed in many Birmingham city centre hotels on business and I'm afraid this is not one of the better ones. In my opinion it is way over priced for what it offers - I suspect you're paying for that Broad Street location.

    Don't believe the hype

    from

    booked a room here on basis of previous reviews and feel misled and disappointed.

    location is good, but room was equivalent to poor travelodge holiday inn express standard (though apparently new rooms are better) breakfast very ordinary.

    Very ordinary: must try harder!

    from

    If this is the 4th best hotel in Birmingham then the competition must be dreadful!

    Excellent

    from

    Hotel on busy broad street, with hundreds of bars and restaurants nearby. Not that noisy inside though due to tripple glazing. I am not one to enjoy staying in chain hotels but I have to say Novotel get it just right. The staff are the best of any hotel I have been to - and this seems to be the case across the chain. The bar and restaurant serve good quality food and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Rooms good size and well equiped. New "novation" rooms are step up from normal rooms (good size bathroom, queen bed, light colours etc). Nothing is too much for the staff who seem to enjoy their jobs. Puts a lot of other hotels to shame. Would definitely recommend for a night or two.

    Fabulous room

    from

    This hotel was wonderful. The staff are incredibly friendly and courteous. The superior novatine room was fabulous! My boyfriend and I have stayed at many hotels abroad and the Novotel in Birmingham City Centre was amongst the best. We only stayed for one night, but we are planning to go to Birmingham again in October for two nights and we will definently stay at the Novotel.

    The amazing novotel

    from

    This amazing little hotel is just about as good as it gets! The rooms are spacious and modern, and extremely welcoming. The food is delectable. But most of all it has to be a first class award to the staff. I have never felt such at ease in a hotel, the staff are friendly but profesional, and nothing is too much trouble for them, their customer service is the best i have encountered. They give a first class impression or the Acorr group, and of the wonderful city of Birmingham.
