This is a Quaker conference centre and so one would expect simplicity but it is much more than that with friendly staff and outstanding public rooms. The bedrooms and beds are excellent although the shower cubicles are small and the water flow is not good in contrast to the hand basins where water flows in a torrent. But against any... More

I recently stayed at Woodbrooke and felt it was a haven from the bustle of the city. Convenient,comfortable,affordable and tranquil.....can't ask for much more! My only gripe was that I stayed four nights and my room was not serviced at all during that time.

Needs to decide if it's a charity or a business. Using volunteers leaves reception too much to chance in terms of welcome. One or two could barely raise a smile. One went out of their way. Disappointing.

Travelling on my own to Birmingham to write up a research project, Woodbrooke was a convenient place to stay. Within easy walking distance of several hospitals and university buildings the centre provides an island of tranquility in Birmingham. My room was comfortable and well furnished with everything I could need for a short stay at a B&B. Breakfast was also... More

I was partaking of a Quaker study course and my partner wasn't. I can find no fault with the accommodation other than the en suite bathroom was a little small, but still perfectly adequate. For me the whole weekend was fulfilling and relaxed and my partner could watch tv in the room, use the library, walk in the lovely grounds,... More

What more could you ask for? Good room, friendly atmosphere, good food, very reasonable rates, parkland & gardens to explore, and all a 10 minute bus ride from the city. Why look elsewhere? You can even join a silent meeting for worship, if you are so inclined.

I stayed here recently on retreat and discovered that it's everything it's said to be. I agree with previous reviewers - this is a very special place; welcoming, tranquil, good food and hospitality, and endless pleasure walking in the beautiful and peaceful gardens. Perhap Woodbrooke's greatest asset amongst many is its staff, who were always friendly and helpful. I was... More

At Woodbrooke as a solo traveller - speaking at a conference and then writing up an academic paper. Couldn't have been better. A pleasant walk to the university (though I could have used bus as the stop is right outside the hotel) and ten acres of gorgeous grounds to stroll in to collect my thoughts before composing my article in...

We booked rooms for nine of us in March as we were planning to be in Birmingham for a college reunion.

Woodbrooke is a haven of peace in a busy world. Very welcoming, comfortable and excellent food. The building is lovely in beautiful grounds. The Quaker nature permeates the care and attention paid by the staff. Nothing is too much trouble.
