Unfortunately I have nothing to say about Hogarths that has not been said already.
My wife and I have stayed there during the last week for a couple of nights due to a Secret Escapes offer. How fortunate I selected it, the hotel and it's staff are excellent.
We were in a superior room overlooking the hotel patio area and the grounds, extensive and a very pleasant view (we usually get the car park or a wall). Check in was very efficient and the room was not to small, I have stopped in a number of higher price hotels with smaller rooms.
Hogarths is obviously a wedding venue and a conference centre. During our stay there was neither so it was very restful and the staff attentive but never obvious, they just seemed to appear when you needed something. What it would be like if these events were happening will have be left for a different reviewer. Also we noticed the rooms seemed to have effective walls, we never heard anything from the adjacent room (which was occupied) or the corridor. Recent stays at other hotels have been affected by both.
The food in the Bar 8 Brasserie was of high quality and the price comparable to other establishments with this quality of food and service. Also unlike a large number of hotels the breakfast is cooked to order so no queuing in front of the stainless steel hot buffet. That alone increases it's appeal.
Outside of the extensive grounds and a 10 minute drive Solihull has a large pedestrianised shopping area and a mile or so away from the hotel is a railway station which brings within range the city of Birmingham without driving the car there.
Would I return? Definitely!
