After a night out drinking and partying, found a great place to have a full english breakfast. Was pleasantly suprised because I have been to a few places where the breakfast has been eexpensive and not too much for it. Would recommend after a hangover :-). Good value for money.

I stayed her for a few nights and it was grim. The room was old and stale, musty, dark, dingy and noisy and stank of damp. When I got home all my clothes smelt musty . The room was not cleaned properly and the floors were dirty. On one night my bed was left un-made and the glasses were not... More

We stayed at the Briar Rose when attending the Barclaycard Arena. Just a two minute walk from New Street Station and less than 10 minute walk to the venue, this location could not have been more perfect. The room was very clean and well presented.

Second time I've stayed here for a 'Gig weekend break'. Its part of the Wetherspoon hotels therefore equals good breakfast for a small additional fee next door! This time the rooms have been refurbished which has improved the decor of the bathroom and bedroom. Friendly helpful staff. Room 204 has its own sound effects...when windy it sounds like a haunted...
