“Excellent business hotel, good conference facilities”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stayed at the Belfry for three nights for a conference and tabletop exhibition. This is a 4* hotel, part of a small group of 20 odd hotels, Q Hotels, not related to the original Sutton Coldfield Belfry where the golf championships are held.

The style of the hotel is modern and stylish, rather like a Novotel, but with higher quality fittings. The rooms are spacious and very well fitted with a double bed with feather mattress topper and comfortable duvet and pillows. No waterproof mattress cover which are my pet hate, hooray.

The bathroom had bath, separate shower basin and loo. All very clean and modern. Big thick towels in generous quantity.

Thermostatic radiator giving comfortable heat and a window that can be opened. Not sure if there would be air-conditioning in the bedrooms in the summer months.

The bar area branched off the lobby with a reasonable selection of drinks, though a only a single keg bitter and no ales. Service was adequate with a bonus that the night porter kept serving until 04:00 one night for a modest tip.

The conference facilities were close access at one end of the lobby with good seating, projectors and air-conditioning. Aircon was set to 28 C in the morning to warm the rooms up, but I soon set them back down to 18 C to save us suffocating. The conference buffet lunches lacked imagination.

We ate in the Lawrence restaurant for breakfast each day and for dinner one evening. The breakfast buffet was very high quality with excellent fresh hot English breakfast or an adequate selection of cereals, pastries, fruit etc. A few items such as boiled or poached eggs or porridge could be made to order. The breakfast was included in our room rate.

The evening dinner which we had in the Lawrence restaurant was truly excellent, far higher quality than I had expected for a hotel of this kind. Both the starters and main dishes were superbly prepared and presented with excellent flavours and textures. The red Zinfandel wine was also a highlight. Shame this same wine is not offered in the bar.

We used the gym and pool in the adjacent spa area. It was well equipped and very clean with a 12m pool and hot tub and a good selection of gym equipment.

Overall an excellent hotel from a small group that is trying very hard to give a better quality than some of the big groups with some of the individuality of a boutique hotel. Well recommended.

Room Tip: My room overlooked the main road, but I did not find it noisy. I could see no sign of rooms that we...

Stayed for a two day conference and found the staff very friendly and attentive. Bedroom comfortable, modern and well equipped.

Dined in the restautant one evening - rather quiet but service and food was good.

Breakfast about the norm for a 4* hotel but not a huge choice. Had a couple of buffet lunches, one included an excellent fish stew the other was bit bland.

They did a very good conference meal for us and again the service was good.

Small pool and a modest but saisfactory gym.

A pleasant experience with a one night stay at our first Q Hotel.
Warm, Clean and well appointed modern room with excellent bathroom, duvets and beds. Breakfast was on par with first class foreign travel and staff very pleasant and accommodating.
Will probably use this Hotel chain more often. Thank you.

The conference facilities were very good, plenty of water and glasses available.

The majority of the staff were friendly and helpful, at the reception and the restaurant.

Bedrooms were comfortable and clean.

We stayed one night for a conference. Expensive sandwiches at lunch time but otherwise good.
Didn't have time to use the spa facilities

Had a one night stay on business. Had a room next to the main road which was noisy other than that it was clean, comfortable, plenty of free parking and reasonable value. Breakfast staff cheerful and helpful pity it could not be transferred to the reception staff

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that front the main road

Stayed one night at this hotel for a conference. The location was easy to find, with plenty of parking and painless check -in. The bar area was comfortable, as was the reception area, with plenty of space for a chat and a pre-dinner drink (or two). My room was very good, particularly the bathroom, and was one of a few rooms that opened out onto a balcony. The hotel staff were attentive, the evening meal was very good, with a good menu choice, and the breakfast didn't disappoint either. If I have to stay in this area again then I would choose to stay here.
