Last weekend I had a rather lovely two night stay in Birmingham thanks to Travelodge. I've never been all that fussed about staying in a fancy five star hotel if the plan is to be gallivanting around a city - give me an easyhotel over the Ritz in London any day!
So two nights spent in the hustle and bustle of Broad Street sounded like a win to me. And it was. It really was. Titanic Reference.
I won't lie, the rooms are pretty basic which is what you'd expect in a cheaper hotel, but mine was spotless and so quiet! I was expecting stag and hen groups a plenty, and phallic shaped straws to be littering the corridors, but once the door was shut I didn't hear a peep. I'd recommend taking your own hair dryer though, especially if the idea of drying your hair in five minute intervals because it keeps overheating doesn't appeal to you....
That being said price is always the deciding factor for me, and if you're booking a few weeks in advance then this seems to be the cheapest hotel on Broad Street by a few cocktails.
Speaking of cocktails we went to a bar named "Players" which I know sounds horrendous (at least it wasn't PLAYAZ), but their cocktail menu was amazing. Not only were there a million to choose from but they were half price before 12. If your ever in those endz then try the Jammy Dodger, it's delicious.
Food was scoffed in GBK and Jurassic World was viewed for the second time. I won't give away any spoilers, just my thoughts on the boy's swishy hair - terrible.
