Location is excellent, at 3 minutes from the Mailbox, with restaurants, cafes, shopping, etc. and 10-15 minutes from city center. Beds are comfortable. Building and apartment are modern, clean, spacious, well- equipped and functional. Staff are friendly and accommodating.
Location is a little bit noisy in the middle of the night, if windows are kept open, which they must since there is no air-conditioning. One or two more chairs would have been welcome. Extra bed provided was unacceptably uncomfortable.
The staff were fantastic, when we arrived and all during our stay. The accomodation was first class and perfect for us. We would stay there again and have already recommended it to family and friends.
I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment. Spacious, well appointed good location next to the Mailbox. Helpful couteous staff. I extended my stay by one night primarily because of the comfort of the apartment.
Slight difficulty finding the entrance./check in. But once found, good location.
The location is great, the flat was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were a group of girls and we all agreed we would stay there again.
There was no washing up liquid. Seeing as the kitchen is all well equipped it seemed a shame there was no washing up liquid provided.
Clean / Well appointed, location absolutely top end.........
Internet access at 5 Pounds per hour is simply unacceptable if you wish to cater for Business Travellers. In a venue of this class - it should be freely available to guests.
Friendly and helpful staff - thought parking prices were too high considering you could park outside - could not open a window to get some fresh air all locked. Bed in main room was uncomfortable and creaky. No tin opening in kitchen or fish slice to fry eggs. all small nigley complaints but generally a very enjoyable experience - would use you again.
Nothing - it was a very nice apartment, close to amenities very helpful and friendly staff which makes all the difference.
the hotel rooms were a good standard for appart hotels
reception was not well signed for arrival or departure( via the car park).The window blinds were cheap and almost all had lost their mechanism for opening the slats. I have never been asked for a deposit re damage before .. bad feelgood factor
apartment was exactly what we wanted. 2 young children were more than happy.
No air conditioning and it was a little like a sauna. Did not spoil the trip.
We had the vip apartment which was nice. The large windows were a bonus and it was very spacious.
There are a few things that were not in the app that we thought would be. Firstly there is no mirror in the second bedroom. There is also only one hair dryer between all of us. There is no ipod docking station and most people have ipods with all their music on rather than a cd. The kitchen lacked a few essentials too, a jug for water, a large bowl, no washing up liquid. We loaded the dishwasher twice and used the only two tablets and then had no means of washing up. Surely it is in your interest to provide a few basics like washing up liquid?
Room was lpvely modern and clean also peaceful.
friendly welcome. excellent location. well equipped flat. very comfortable quiet in the evenings close to shopping. excellent service from the handy man.
We rented a two bedroom/two bath at the Postbox for three nights this past week as my son is moving to Birmingham and we were looking for a flat for him. The location is perfect-close to the Mailbox with restaurants,shopping and the fabulous canals. The apartment was very large with full kitchen,washing machine,etc. The bathrooms were huge along with the large bedrooms with full closets,comforters,etc.The sitting area with large TV was nice for quite a few people to sit around together in the evenings. Our family liked this apartment so well we were hoping that my son could have gotten one similar to this for his move to Birmingham!
Lights in the bedroom were so small and dark that it was hard to read at night in bed.
Excellent location for the Mailbox. 2 bed apartment was spacious and had everything we needed to make us feel at home. Staff really friendly and helpful. Will definitely book again.
Good standard apartment. Very clean and modern. Very helpful staff. Excellent for travel with children, lots of room. Good to have dishwasher and washingmachine/dryer. Good location, nice neighbourhood and within walking distance (15 min) to city centre (The Bullring). Has a small Tesco supermarket 2 min away and a big Tesco 3 min drive away.
Expensive internet wi-fi access and only for 1 device - had never came across this in any hotel/apartment! When you book a 2 room apartment for 4, you almost certainly have several devices like mobile phones, computers and ipads. We ended up with no internet for 5 days, except for the computer. This is very important specially if you come from abroad and have expensive roaming. The kitchenware was almost nonexistent, could not cook for 4 with what you got.
Loved the location really close to The Mailbox and wharfside with lots of restaurants. apartments really modern and had all amenities you could wish for.
