“Hagley Road's Finest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Every other building on this part of the busy Hagley Road seems to be a (cheap) hotel. This is the best value and most homely of the half dozen we have stayed at. Whilst the headline rate of others might be comparable once breakfast and sometimes parking is added the Fountain Court comes out on top.

Terms that are unsuitable for the place are: “trendy”, “minimalist”, ”modern” and “designer”. Think more of a visit to your grandmother’s house – patterned carpets, flowery duvet cover, pillowcases with a fringe and teapots in every room. Some of it might be worn around the edges but that might be the result of repeated cleaning over the years and yes, the dividing walls between the walls could be thicker . But for the money we have found it unbeatable.

This hotel is worth considering if you are looking for a conveniently placed hotel which is low cost - I paid £37 per night, it's a quiet hotel (but on a busy road), comfortable, with friendly/helpful staff, and a freshly cooked breakfast, car parking and wifi in the lounge. Admittedly, this is an older property, a little creaky with not all matching furniture but is by far the best I can find at this price.

Stayed for 3 nights. This hotel is just superb value for money.. The owners can not do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The food is top class all home cooked. The rooms are a good standard for the price you pay.
Have stayed in other hotels in the area
& will not hesitate to go back to this one.
Outstanding value & friendly.

Will be staying there again very soon.
Would say to anyone Stay at the Fountain Court Hotel you can not go wrong with this Hotel.

The owners couldn't be more helpful I am currently lodging with my dog who the owners welcomed with open arms..
This really is a family friendly hotel and very welcoming 5*****

Very friendly reception, we arrived later than expected and the staff still accommodated a lovely meal for my wife and myself on Valentines night! Dog friendly and close to the city centre. Homely accommodation, 55 pounds per night with breakfast included is excellent value. Thanks for a lovely stay.

I love staying at the Fountain Court Hotel in Birmingham as I work away from home all week it has become a second home to me and I tried out many hotels prior to finding this one which suits me perfectly. Rick, Stella and their family go the extra mile to help you out and nothing is a problem for them - the rooms are spotless and provide a great nights sleep. I would recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: I love the room at the back with the fantastic free standing bath which is over 100 years old

Great Hotel, central location, really friendly staff/owners, good food in the restaurant. I looked at the reviews before booking, and yes the decor / style is out dated, however, its clean, homely and welcoming, BUT if you want a faceless/plastic hotel with no charactr there are plenty up the road! We used the "large family room" it sleeps six comfortably, with a young family its great to all be together in one room. Would definately stay again ... especially for the breakfasts!
