A friend of mine booked an afternoon tea for myself and two other friends for a 'get together'. She had an Amazon voucher for all of us at half price. I am glad to say she didn't pay full price as what we had was not worth the money. The sandwiches were fine, we had nice fresh scones but had... More

Had a Amazon Voucher for 2 for half price! Glad i didn't pay full price because half price wasn't worth it! Arrived to find my booking hadn't been wrote down in the diary, not a good start. Got seated and had to wait 20 mins before tea was served. Nice tea, sandwiches and chocolate eclair. The scones were hard to... More

I booked this hotel with a friend just a place to lay our heads after a night sampling Birmingham's great nightlife. This hotel is perfectly situated to hop in taxi for 5 mins and your in the heart of the city. Excellent room rates, cost £55.00. Clean bed, towels, linen, hot powerful shower. But furniture is really old, scuffed and... More

We went on a Living Social deal. It was a very good deal to get B&B and a family ticket for £78. On entry to the hotel the entrance, lounge and bar area are more impressive than the rest of the hotel.However the hotel is quite tatty and in need of a paint and some loving care. The staff were...

Just returned home after inviting three friends to the Christmas Afternoon Tea (Amazon discount voucher for half price). Oh dear... The restaurant was empty, cold and unwelcoming. Considering the promotion was offered at half price (£12.00pp instead of £24.00pp) the meagre portions and poor quality of the food was appalling. Very mean servings of finger sandwiches per person - fillings... More

Well I can honestly say this was one of the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! We arrived to The Plough and Harrow one hour before check in. I asked reception staff if it was possible for an early check in but she said it was not. This was disappointing as many other hotels I have stayed in (including... More

I booked a Living Social deal online for Cadburys world and a night in a hotel which happened to be the Plough and Harrow. The hotel is on a very busy road. There is no right turn into the hotel car park, you have to go to the end of the road and double back on yourself. The reception area... More

We booked in for two nights dinner bed and breakfast with a mini tea on the first day as part of a Classic Lodge deal. The room was very comfortable with a great corner bath in a large bathroom. The tea was lovely and the food in the restaurant was also good ( can recommend the flat iron steaks). Breakfast... More

Plaster falling off the walls, threadbare and stained carpet, especially on the stairs, paintwork scratched and again stained, came here 30 years ago and did not recognise the place. I understand from other guests that there are new owners, I hope they have a lot of money as the building needs a complete refurb, they should look at the food... More

My family and I stayed on 24th October. On arrival all looked ok. Got to our room and it was very cold. Beds were so hard it was like sleeping on the floor. The fitted furniture was old and dirty. The lounge was very nice. Beautiful furniture. There was no one on the bar but lots of staff running around... More
