This guesthouse offers excellent accommodation with comfortable and clean rooms, good facilities and an excellent breakfast all within a stones thrown of the NEC. It was very easy to find and most welcoming. Highly recommended.

Stayed here last weekend for the classic car show. This was my second year staying here and I have to say the girls are amazing. The accomodation is first class but only outdone by the staff themselves and the best cooked breakfast you will find anywhere. Thank you girls and keep up the great work looking forward to seeing you...

This large traditional property with plenty of on...

“We stayed in a bedroom at the rear of the property and it was so quiet that you could have heard a pin drop. It also had the comfiest bed we have ever slept in and we wished we could have brought it home with us.”
