Treated ourselves to another weekend at this fabulous place - we were lucky enough to be in the city to enjoy a food festival in Victoria Square too! As always the accommodation was amazing - we made full use of the kitchen this time... the little touches make all the difference, like the oranges for fresh juice in the morning,... More

I stayed in a studio apartment on the 19th floor and the views over Birmingham were amazing, made even better by the ceiling to floor windows. The apartment had all of the necessities you could need, including milk and fresh oranges. It was very quiet and I had a very comfy bed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Very... More

I stayed here with my partner for his birthday and we loved the room. It had everything we needed to have a lovely night and absolutely perfect views!

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment that was beautiful, spacious and had phenomenal views out over Birmingham. We were on floor nineteen so you do need a head for heights to be happy here.

Travelling to Birmingham by train? You couldn't do better than Staying Cool at the Rotunda. Its just a couple of minutes walk from New St station, where the excellent Virgin trains service from Euston ends. There are 8 steps up from the station (I counted them) which may be a little inconvenient with luggage but isn't insurmountable and then another... More
