Individual guest reviews

  • The location was excellent and other members of staff were fine during our stay. Room was done early, the heated towel rail was the only saving grace and the cooked breakfast was delicious, just we needed after a heavy night out in Birmingham.

    Not near to city centre, slightly noisy from the adjacent main road and bathroom decor is looking a little tired. The exterior of the thistle is typical concrete jungle, and not that attractive, the furniture is cheap and the carpets are worn, a £5 tray charge on top of overpriced food is way over the top.

  • Excellent location, hotel clean and clean, friendly good price. The staff were very pleasant, the room was very cheap, and considering this very nice, the hot food at breakfast was lukewarm and served on cold plates.

    Not a great place to stay and very poor service indeed. Bed not too comfortable.

  • The location was great and i booked this hotel on hotwire and was pleased i did. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean. Breakfast was fine.

    Bed was hard, pillows were of low quality and old and the shower was ineffectual and there was no hot water at 9.00 am on a Sunday morning.

  • The location was perfect and hotel rooms were a little shabby and rough around the edges. Staff were helpful and friendly, bathroom was very clean, the price of drinks was too expensive.

    Cost more than the advertised £10.00 a day and reception was very slow and cramped. The water pressure was to low and restaurant was overpriced for was serving, by at least £6.
