    Convenient for City Centre and NEC. Fuss free business stay.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were given an upgrade to a superior room, which was nice. The room overall was spacious enough and generally clean and tidy, with complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities.

    The rooms could do with a smarten up in terms of attention to detail on decor. Even though we had a superior room, there were cracks in the ceiling and the windowsills weren't particularly clean. The 'leatherette' on the chair in our room was flaking off but most importantly, we had a comedy shower! The shower head feel off and I had to fix it and the shower extender rail cam away from the wall whenever you tried to adjust the shower height!

    Excellent value, I must commend the receptionist - he was incredibly kind and helpful. I don't know his name but he was also on duty the morning I left - 9th May. Really, he gave five star service and should be promoted and given a big raise!

    Not dirty, but decor tired.

    when i book into the hotel i go to the rainbow warehouse to uber as a few friends dj dwn there.........

    the last time i stayed at the paragon hotel i got a double room for £35......but this time i was given a single room for that price n found it very tiny....i really hope i get a double room nxt time for that price because i do not think it is worth £35 for a single room the last time i booked with the hotel n they gave me a double room..............also the shower cubicle was disgusting n very dirty too.......my friend stayed there also n had to pay £60 for a single room.............i will be staying at the hotel agen when there are other nights at the rainbow........

    We have stayed here several times. The rooms are small, but clean and quiet and comfortable. I like the old building which the hotel occupies.

    Bar closed quite early around 10. We had to go to reception and ask them to send someone to serve us.

    Price was good,if we had paid full price for the room i would have definately be disatisfied and complained

    The shower was mouldy and dirty,both my daughter and myself declined to use it!

  • Couple

    Friendly and informative staff, unusually old fashioned hotel for the centre of a major city.

    The shower tiles were old and therefore looked dirty, also the shower curtain wasn't good at preventing water from spreading to the rest of the bathroom.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Excellent, very professional staff.

    Horrible, scary location, even quite close to the center. Bad working, paid internet.
