We stayed one night prior to attending and event at the NEC which is about 20 mins drive away.
The location is ideal being only 10 to 15 mins walk into the centre of Knowle with its myriad of eating establishments.
The bedroom was of a decent size and comfortable. Our hosts were pleasant and friendly.
The big draw back from our point of view was that eating breakfast in the kitchen, which seemed to have very little ventilation, resulted our clothes smelling of fried breakfast for most of the day.
