A nice clean friendly b & b not far from NEC or Birmingham airport. There is a bus stop almost directly opposite the guest house with buses every 15 minutes. The bus takes about 10 minutes and drops you at Birmingham international station. From there you can walk to the arenas or get a free monorail to airport. Lovely breakfast...

It felt so homely rather than a b&b. The breakfast was cooked by the owner and she does an excellent job, wide variety of foods and...
