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

I stayed here on several occasions during 2009 and 2010 on residential training courses, and really enjoyed staying at the Beeches. The accommodation was nice, the food good and the staff very friendly. The setting is pleasant too, quiet and relaxing. Recommended.
