Expert Hotel Review – Clayton Hotel – Birmingham, UK


The Clayton Hotel is located in Birmingham city centre. It is located within a 5 minute walk to Birmingham Bullring Shopping Centre and Grand Central. The location is ideal for anyone looking to spend the night in the heart of Birmingham City Centre. There are an array of restaurants and shops nearby within walking distance and lots of nightlife entertainment.

Parking is readily available nearby. We parked in the NCP Birmingham High Street which cost £11 and this can be paid at the hotel reception when checking out. The car park is located just a short walk from the hotel (around 3 minutes) the price is pretty good for Birmingham city centre. Just take the entry card at the barrier when entering the car park and the hotel staff will scan it on checkout. You then use this when exiting the car park.


The hotel offers 218 rooms which are all what you would expect in a 4* hotel. Each room has its own en-suite and tea making facilities and are a good size for Birmingham. The rooms were clean and tidy and serviced well. There is a bar located on the first floor which can be accessed via the lifts or a staircase in reception. There is a hotel restaurant which serves good food and an outside smoking area within the lounge/bar area.  

The hotel itself has a good feel to it. It does feel like a good 4* hotel. Reception was manned well with at least 3 people serving guests. check in / check out were pretty quick with no issues.

You will find all the usual amenities you expect from a good 4* hotel:

  • Conference facilities
  • Free Internet
  • Bar / lounge
  • Restaurant
  • 24 hour reception
  • Housekeeping / room service
  • TV
  • Tea/Coffee making facilities in the room
  • Non-Smoking hotel

Value For Money

We paid £90 for a 1 night stay in the Deluxe King & Single room. This gave us 1 x King size bed plus a Single bed for a child. There are cheaper hotels and room rates available nearby but we believe this hotel offers a good value for money stay.

For the location, the £90 is good value for money we think. You can sometimes pick up rooms for around £75-£80.

Service / Staff

The service is exactly what you would expect from a good 4* hotel. The 24 hour concierge is always available for questions and help where needed. We had an issue with the Air con in our room so had to move rooms. We were given a free drink each at the hotel bar for our trouble. The room swap was all completed within 5 minutes. Good service from reception.

We asked a number of questions to see how knowledgeable the Reception staff were about the surrounding area and were pleasantly surprised with how friendly we were answered. We were also given their opinions on which restaurants to try which was great! They seemed to be able to answer each query with no issues and were professional and polite.

Lastly – Would we go back


We believe this hotel offers good value for money, a good location and very good service. All in all, it was a good stay and we would recommend anyone visiting Birmingham City Centre to give this hotel a try.
