Staff very welcoming and helpful but the cleanliness wasn't quite up to scratch with things like hairs left in the shower, light missing in the bathroom ceiling leaving a very dusty cobweb filled hole, lamps in the room not working, blood spots on the pillow case. They have nice touches in the rooms like biscuits and snacks but then ruin... More

Not sure how 4*. We stayed in Hamlet (definitely not a deluxe room.......we have stayed in cleaner travel lodge rooms). Although the room itself was nice and reasonably clean the en suite was the worst we have seen. The pictures say it all. Breakfast was ok (no bacon) but not a huge issue. The issue I had at breakfast time... More

Booked this based on trip advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. We had been looking for a place to stay after a concert at the Genting Arena and I was staggered by the price of the hotels on site. Arden House is just 10 minutes from the venue and easily accessible by taxi. The owner booked us a taxi in advance... More

I was welcomed by the charming owner who showed me to my room, provided some fresh milk for my tea and morning coffee. She suggested places to eat nearby. The B&B is a modern house, with proper central heating, double glazed against the noise of Birmingham, except, the house is situated on the edge of a modern estate with parkland... More

When I walked through the door, instantly I fell into the world of Shakespeare. It was amazing. The rooms were classic yet modern. The staff (Shama in particular) were so welcoming and nice! Unfortunately I broke a wall by tripping. No problem for the swift hotel staff however. Breakfast was delicious and cooked just how I like it. Will definitely... More

Arden House is a surprise, nestled in a very comfortable and well to do estate. The staff and manager were hugely welcoming, and made me feel extremely relaxed after what had been a stressful and busy day. The room had everything I required (and more -- a snack box), and when I asked to borrow an iron, they took my... More

This B&B answered our needs as it is very convenient to the NEC. It was very clean, the bedroom was a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. But the bathroom was extremely small and would not be suitable for a larger person. There was plenty to eat for breakfast and a good choice on the menu. But was... More
