The Great Barr Hotel became my home from home when my house was flooded recently. The staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and went above and beyond to make my stay as happy as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I'd like to thank them all so much for helping to make... More

Are we glad our usual Hotel was fully booked as we would have missed finding this comfortable and well presented Hotel. We needed a disabled room with twin beds and as this was not available...

We stayed for one night on the 30th July in a club suite room, although it was small and basic, it was comfortable and for a cheap overnight stay whilst visiting family it was perfect. Full English breakfast in the morning was delicious, tea and coffee bought over to the table. Fresh fruit, toast, yoghurt, cereal etc. Would stay here... More

We stayed in club rooms which were really spacious, clean and relatively new. The Take That Tribute act and the disco were really good fun. The meal and breakfast were good too for the price paid. The staff at the tribute act and disco were very nice. Overall we had a lovely stay and are hoping to return to see... More

Many thanks for your review and raising your concerns. Firstly let me apologise for the issues you encountered, we do indeed have cots that are available as long as they are not already in use as we do have a limited number of these, this should have been put in your room by the housekeeping team. Unfortunately we do have... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Great Barr Hotel. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean (Club room 132). It was spacious and in particular had an excellent ensuite wetroom. It was at the back of the hotel so there was no view from the windows to speak of. The facilities (tv, tea/coffee making) were excellent. The breakfasts... More

Just returned from a good night out. The tribute band were very good, the food was very good, a nice selection for all three courses. Our room was one of the club rooms, looking forward to going back soon.

General Foyer – nice and clean and welcoming – but no staff to greet or give directions to the function room or bar (or to check in if you were staying). Rest of the hotel was in disarray – uneven floors, warning tape everywhere, sheets hung to cover unfinished areas, obviously only part way through extensive refurbishment which was no... More
