Our experience at the Rotunda was incredible. We had booked the penthouse suite which slept four and we were not disappointed. Really spacious, immaculately decorated and with the most incredible view. A huge balcony and floor to ceiling windows. There are a few board games and books in the room and a large TV. I would highly recommend this place... More

We stayed here for one night over August Bank holiday weekend. First the good stuff - great room (1910), amazing view over central Brum and very good facilities although we couldn't bring ourselves to open the sliding door as we were on the 19th floor! Now the not so good- the first room we were offered (1904) had a large... More

I arranged to stay here for my pre-wedding party as well as our wedding night on the 19th Floor. Really was a perfect stay in many ways, the staff were friendly and helpful, the apartment was adequately resourced and clean (thanks to a lovely Simone) and all of my guests were astounded by the view. Paying the extra amount compared... More

Bad location. Took me and hour driving around trying to look for it. No on site parking, no bag drop off point. Middle of the night, two children, luggage, unable to find hotel. Ended up staying at another hotel. Hotel arrogant enough as to not provide any refund.

Dear Unicorns99 As myself and our front of house team said in our email, we're really sorry to hear you had a problem finding us. It’s not been an issue we have encountered before (some guests have trouble finding the entrance, but not the building). We have actually been praised for our directions by the inspector team at Visit England... More

Fantastic apartment in Birmingham, with very attentive staff! It's a great location and has excellent facilities. I loved the huge windows with the fantastic views. All the little extra touches make your stay feel really special. Hope to go back soon.

Hi Aithmac Thank you for your fab review, it's lovely to hear you enjoyed the little touches we provide. We'd love to open in London, hopefully we can find the right conversion project somewhere central. Please rest assured that although the windows open up fully, the toughened glass barrier in front is high enough to stop anyone having an accident.... More
