Stayed as part of a training course - the training room facilities were excellent, but the rest of the facilities and the food was average at best. Typified by the breakfast - on coming down we found bread laid out for toasting, but the toaster was broken and after confirming this with the staff, no replacement was available. They did... More

The bedroom was second rate, not very good bed; shower was shoddy; staff were not very welcoming or attentive; lounge was a good area and the bar was quite good with a helpful barman. Not a hotel that I would recommend.

Dear NWWJ. Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your bedroom was not up to your expectations. Refurbishment is always a rolling programme, however, we are looking directly into the bedroom you stayed in and will rectify any issues. I'm pleased you found the bar area good and I have passed on your comments to the barman. Kind... More

The other reviews for the hotel made me think this would be better than I had expected however everything about it was average/fine!! I was told on check-in I had Bern upgraded to a larger room, if my original room had Bern any smaller it would have to have Bern a box. Positives it was clean (ish) and furniture was... More

Dear alison r. Thank you for your review. I guess that's the thing with Trip Advisor - it is all very subjective. Everyone's expectations and enjoyment are different. However, I'm glad you had a comfortable stay and that you found all the staff to be extremely helpful. Kind Regards Debra Jones More

We stayed at the Beeches to break up a long journey and to have dinner with relatives who live nearby. Our room was not in the main hotel, but in an adjoining building. The whole effect was for all the world like a university campus and not in a bad way. The room was perfectly good enough for our needs,... More

The building itself is an old Cadbury red brick affair with loads of character in a lovely location. On booking in at around 9pm the chap on reception was very helpful and checked me in without a problem.

This place is ideal for travelling building trades. Its too basic, lacks quality. In a nutshell cheap and nasty. The food, well did not even try it. The eating area did not appeal. Good choice and decision.

I recently stayed at the Beeches conference centre/hotel in Bournville. The hotel is an old building that has been extended and added to over the years. It has quite extensive grounds, most of which are given over to car parking. There is a lawned area at the back. The area, for those who don't know it, is one of the... More
