We ate here on a Friday evening just before going to a gig at the O2 institute, a couple of minutes walk away. It's a lovely traditional old pub, one of the oldest in Birmingham. We had fish n chips which was very nice, they also serve a great selection of real ales. There is a nice outdoor area with...

Very old building which requires much TLC and investment in badic renovating. Relatively cheap. Dinner stops at 9 pm plus a limited vegetarian menu. Unfortunately we were in the front of the hotel (upstairs facing the main road) and it was incredibly noisy. Woken up several due to this. The lights were not all working which made the room appear...

Check in was very relaxed, and we were shown to wonderful room 8! It's huge! Massive room with such a comfy bed and a large separate bathroom with beautiful roll...

Amazing building and great food. Atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were friendly and helpful. Played great music. Room 5 has a really comfortable four poster bed. Would definitely stay there again if ever in Birmingham.

Clean friendly location we have used before. Staff very happy to help and accommodating. Foods good although they might think about expanding the menu and the residents breakfast was first rate. On the down side parking is a lottery (Cheap parking a short walk if not) and the area is very noisy at weekends.

The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was warm clean and comfortable. The somewhat sombre nature of the hotel indicates a need for management investment in lightbulbs! I shall be taking a LED reading light when I return next week.

There is not a right angle in the place, we had the family room with bathroom. You have to walk up hill to the bathroom. Daylight shows through the walls and some parts of the ceiling are low. This hotel is awesome and I can not recommend it high enough. The staff were brilliant, the food was gorgeous and the...
