Fortunately I only had to stay here one night because the establishment I normally frequent when on business in this area was fully booked - both the headline rate and the tariff for food / drink at The Beeches can be bettered by another facility nearby that is more homely / more welcoming / better maintained - thankfully I wasn't...

Firstly, compared to other hotels in Birmingham I paid peanuts for my room. I had a conference at the ICC the following morning and this was a 20 min drive away, a good base considering I was coming up from Kent. Therefore I wasn't expecting lavish rooms with marble bathroom surfaces. What I got was a pleasant little attic room,... More

Arrived on a Sunday at about 13:30. The hotel was all locked up no one around no one answering the door bell. Called the telephone number answer message was the hotel reopens at 07:30 the next morning! Great start! Went back on Monday, the reception staff were friendly and tried to explain what happened. The room is small and dated,... More

Dear Andy D. Thank you for your review. I have investigated and understood the Sunday issue. However, when bookings are made through Navarino, as indeed yours was, a "note" is flagged to the booking agent, which tells them that the check-in time is 3pm on Sundays. I can only apologise on their behalf if this was not passed on to... More

Recently stayed at the hotel when visiting the Birmingham Xmas Markets with friends. We had looked at lots of packages but many were overpriced in my opinion especially when we only needed somewhere to put our head down. The hotel is in Bournville and was originally part of the Cadburys estate. The building is old but the rooms are functional... More

We met a few friends here for a catch up and some food on a Friday night. The atmosphere was great and the food was lovely. Service was very good as were the staff. I will be recommending this place and returning in the future. Wish it was closer to my door step.

The layout to this hotel is very odd In terms of stairs, corridors and rooms. I struggle with stairs and was given an attic room on the 3rd floor. There was a lift which only went to the first floor! The stairs were very steep and the building was very warm (hence nursing home comment). The room was surprisingly large... More

Were it not for the location this place would get one star, it really is that poorly run. Breakfast was mediocre at best, and not available until 07:00 am, a bit strange for a business hotel. Some of the rooms are terribly loud, mine was OK but traffic was loud in the mornings. Best of all? Guests have to pay... More

The hotel is OK. Nothing more, nothing less. Breakfast is perhaps little above standard, considering expectations in the UK. Staff in the reception looks bored or is constantly watching the computer screen. They, however, managed to help out a few times - when requested. The bed was good. Location is perhaps convenient when travelling by car - but the closest... More
