I stayed at the Strathallan along with a number of relatives whilst in Birmingham for a family wedding. The check in was quick and efficient and throughout my stay the staff were pleasant and helpful. After checking in, I had afternoon tea in the lobby with my mother with scones, clotted cream and jam. The scones were gorgeous and freshly baked, and whilst the consistency of the cream didn't seem thick enough to be clotted, it was nevertheless very nice. I had a single room, which was very small, although for me personally, this was not a problem. The room itself was very clean and tidy, although there was a small chip in the plaster on the ceiling beside the smoke detector. The room was quite stuffy, but it was OK with the windows open, though obviously that means having outside noise, which may bother some people (personally that doesn't bother me). The in-room ironing board in my room didn't fold down when I wanted to iron a shirt for the wedding, but the staff promptly brought me up an ironing board and iron. I also had a problem with my key card a couple of times. On the first occasion, it let me in on the forth or fifth attempt. The second time round, it just wouldn't let me in. Fortunately a maid was close by and let me in. As I was about to check out anyway and was just collecting my bags it wasn't a huge problem. Noise from the corridor was a bit of a problem on the sunday morning as another guest was shouting in the corridor at 7am. The breakfasts are really good quality and have a good choice available. Its definitely worth getting the bed and breakfast options! I should also thank the woman who was manning the bar late on Saturday night (June 15th) for putting up with us when we returned from the wedding and had a few drinks in the hotel bar, as we were in high spirits!
So, a few minor issues, but in general, it was absolutely fine and I would happily stay at the Strathallan in the future.
Some of my relatives were in 'inner' facing rooms and opening windows didn't prevent the...
