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

Stayed here for one night prior to sons interview. Room was small tv size of laptop screen and the hall leading to shared bathroom was freezing. We were forced to put on our coat. Breakfast room was similarly siberiaesque. Breakfast one rasher of bacon horrid fried egg non heinz baked beans. Felt sorry for Landlady who was extremely polite and... 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

Unfortunately, I think this place is not a hotel, but a fairly shabby B & B. I arrived in the dark and the location looked OK, a residential area. I stood outside for quite a while, having rung the doorbell and waited ages for the proprietor to answer. first impression was poor as the hallway looked shabby. I didn't get... More

I never write reviews but this B&B was appalling. Poor customer service. Dated decor, shabby. Tiny single room. Extremely creaky floorboards throughout the house- I couldn't sleep because as soon as anyone in hotel moved you can hear it! It felt like the people in the room above were going to fall through and land on me. Cheap food products... More

This is a B&B. We had to share a bathroom (which was very run down and dirty). The owners were nice enough when we arrived. Our rooms were dated and not very comfortable. We were not expecting luxury at the price we paid but I can't help but feel we would have had a much better stay anywhere else.

To start with this hotel's advert about rooms with showers is misleading, all the bathrooms and showers which by the way are in a filthy and shabby state are shared. No obvious cleaning materials are available either. The room was the size of a cupboard, the blind was broken so the light came in early in the morning. The mattress... More

I booked this hotel as I was providing 3 days of training to a local business and it was the nearest place I could find to the venue I was training at. First impressions were not very welcoming. The woman who greeted me was standoffish and I did not feel at all like a valued guest. The room was shabby... More

We booked the Awentsbury to be near to our student daughter living in Selly Oak - and the location was great for that. However, that was as good as it got. We arrived at 10pm having phoned ahead, to find the porch door open but no doorbell evident. Several fruitless attempts at knocking on the door before a helpful chap... More
