I booked this hotel because it was the only one near an event I was attending so I didn't check out the reviews first and I really wish I'd just forked out the money to stay somewhere central and paid for a taxi because this is one of the worst hotels I've ever had the misfortune to stay in.

Ian K, Manager at Awentsbury Hotel Birmingham, responded to this review

There was a slight delay in dealing with this guest as two separate guest had checked in at the same time . We have to mention payment at check in as so many guests who book on line and give their card details assume that the room is prepaid. This is beyond our control and booking.com and others should make... More

The owner was weird and unwelcoming, we got the impression we were causing great inconvenience by paying way over the odds to stay in what might as well have been her spare room. The room itself was fairly dismal and needed redecorating. You could hear the neighbours talking through the walls (in normal indoor voices). The extractor fan in the... More

Hotel is in a old house. The room as well as the breakfast room where freezing cold! Room was small but all clean. The bed was good! I had a room with bath, bath was very small but also clean. In my opinion, the Price was too high for the room... Staff was friendly.

Like previous comments I've seen, no way should this be classed as a Hotel. It is an old converted house. I made a mistake by not reading the small print and ended up with a shared bathroom. Bedroom: quite large, containing 1 double bed, 2 bedside tables, a sink and something bolted to the wall for hanging clothes on. As... More

Stayed here for one night one before attending a wedding. In truth you can stay somewhere more modern and welcoming for the price, the rooms were tired (but clean), but the bathrooms were on a landing outside and were not inviting at all. Was woken more than once by people coming in across the noisy landings, although to be fair... More

Owner was rude and unhelpful, asked me to pay my bi before even seeing my room and Now I know why! Dusty old room with no care taken with an awful shared bathroom , very dated and cold! Also feels far away from anything if you don't know the area! Really hard to communicate with the owner as she is... More

I read the reviews after booking the hotel and wondered what I was in for. In fact I was in for pleasant stay in a comfortable B & B ideally located for my purpose. The beds were comfortable and the room very warm. The shared bathrooms needed updating and decorating but they were clean and there was plenty of hot... More

This was a good B&B for the price. Things were a bit dated in terms of decor but the place was clean and my bed was comfortable. It was very close to the university and a straight 35 minute walk into town from the bottom of Serpentine road which was handy. The area seemed nice and safe, mainly students about.... More
