“nec visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

this is the third time we have stopped here. The setting is very nice with a big garden to relax in if the weather is fine. The owners are very friendly and service is great.If you are going to the NEC they will give you a courtesey lift to and from. The rooms are situated in the gardens and the fridge is stocked with water and milk as it has coffee making facilities. If you like a big fry up for breakfast then you are in luck or alternatively ask for a smaller one. Also there is a range of cereals and yogurts, fruit and toast and jam, all very fresh. All being well we will be going again next year.

Positives - very well equipped room including microwave, crockery and cutlery; quiet - we had the room furthest away from the house. Only noise was from aeroplanes which didn't really bother us; very clean; very comfortable beds; excellent transport to and from the arena for no extra charge; excellent breakfast; very good directions to hotel
Negatives - breakfast time limited to 8.00-8.30 so no good if you want a lie-in; check-out time also very early -10.00 a.m. Twin beds results in cramped room - no space for a chair or even to leave your case on the floor. However, positives far outweigh these minor negatives.

Stayed at the Redlands for two nights when going to NEC recently and could not believe the level of service and friendlyness of the lovely couple who own the property.

Rooms are all in the garden in small brick or timber units, each room is an suite and all have fridge,TV, kettle and tea making facilities. Some even have microwave oven. Small but adequate rooms, well decorated and furnished with good units etc. Summer stays would be good as there is a large garden with pond/fish and plenty outdoor seating. Yvonne and Phillip the owners are great and very helpful, even to taking you to your local venue or airport in their mini bus FREE OF CHARGE. What more can you say other than THANKS FOR A GREAT STAY.

After a none too friendly welcome from the owner, (we arrived at 2pm, which is their earliest specified check-in time, however we were told that we weren't expected til 3pm) we were shown to our room which was very clean, well equipped, and decorated nicely.

The owners drew us a map to help us get to the centre of Solihull, which is beautiful, and told us about some local places to eat and drink, where to park, etc.

However, the walls in the rooms were very thin, we could hear the guests next door having a conversation! I would have liked a bit more flexibility regarding breakfast times, it seemed it was 8.30am or you did without, even on a Sunday.

The free shuttle service was useful, the breakfast was massive and there was a good selection. I would stay again but would request a room on its own to avoid noise.

We recommended this lovely B and B to friends and Family when we held out Wedding at Home on Hampton Lane and everyone loved it and would highly recommend it. They "pods" were unusual but unique and lovely.

Very surprised at this "little" guest house. You pull up in front of a house and you think it's just a normal guest house..... Until Phil calls you from the side gate and takes you through to the kitchen, then you meet his wife Yvonne.... I actually felt like I was popping in to friends it was instantly welcoming.... And then for the next surprise.... The rooms..... I loved it. Imagine a big playhouse at the end of your garden, with fountain as well (in garden not room LOL)... It was a mini wood cabin....In the room was a fridge, microwave and the usual tea etc.

Breakfast was at the main house in the conservatory... And trust me when I say the breakfast will keep you going all day.

It's not spotless, cold and clinical, there might be the odd cobweb but I would thoroughly recommend as it was very friendly and homely.
