The owners are very kind and gentle. The B&B is clean and comfortable, with lots of facilities near by, restaurants, market, stores, etc. Easy to reach, with a very nice breakfast on your choice for english or continental breakfast. The room and bathroom are very nice, clean and comfortable. I really recommend.

It’s a cosy and comfortable B&B run by a retired couple. We stayed for just one night and left the place hoping to come back soon for a longer stay. It’s located between the city centre and the NEC and airport, about 10-15 min from each place by bus. There are more than one bus lines that connects all three... More

This place is perfectly situated for the airport, city centre, Solihull centre, shops, banks, church, everything really. Run by a lovely couple who serve a fabulous breakfast with pride. Keep up the good work guys, it shows how much you care about your guests.

I stayed for three nights with my daughter while attending a convention. The room was perfect for us, the breakfast was beautiful and Marilyn and John were the perfect hosts. If it wasn't for Marilyn's help with transport etc, our weekend would have been a total disaster. When we arrived my daughter commented that it was just like 'staying at... More

A nice little bed and breakfast, perfect for what we were staying for. Stayed 3 nights whilst exhibiting at the NEC. Marilyn was very friendly and helpful, felt like we were staying at a relatives. The room was a great size for us (only 2). Clean towels everyday and really enjoyed the full English. Thanks for the lovely stay, WeDo3DPrinting

Was looking for a well-priced stay on the outskirts of Birmingham and this place was just that. To start the main faults were really the small three bedroom accomodations we had, the narrow stairs, and I'm not a huge fan of the busy road/parking situation. But those few faults weren't that bad for us and I was still more than... More

Tiny bedroom and very narrow bed overlooking one of the busiest roads in Birmingham, traffic thundering past the bedroom all night. The landlady is only interested in guests money, not their wellbeing. Would never go back there!

malatgables, Owner at Gables Nest, responded to this review

Yes we are on a very busy road because we are very close to Birmingham airport and the NEC and also four miles from Birmingham city centre which is where most people would like to be. You had a single room at £30 which is very reasonable for where we are situated as this also includes full english breakfast, heating... More
