“Absolutely amazing guest house”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Me and my friend stayed at the black firs guest house as we were going to a show at the lg arena that night! We were made to feel so welcome as soon as we got there! We were given a little tour of the facilities and shown to our room! Our room was lovely we had the comfiest beds I have ever slept in! We were also provided with refreshments such as teas coffees hot chocolates and biscuits in our room which was a nice touch :) Julie is a lovely lady and she was so helpful when we couldn't get a taxi to the arena! Breakfast was gorgeous and I would absolutely stay there again and again and again! Thank you Black Firs Guest House!

Fabulous! Lovely room and ensuite facility. Loved the breakfast room (and yummy freshly cooked breakfast) which had been redesigned since my previous stay. A real home from home, I'm always made to feel welcome by Julie. Superb!

We stayed the night here in the premier room , and every thing was just as we had hoped , immaculate ! The room , and the property in general was spotlessly clean. The bed was extremely comfortable , and i slept very well , which is unusual for me ! The breakfast was cooked to order , and delicious too. I would recommend this as the perfect place to stay if you're needing accommodation for any attractions at the NEC/ LG arena.
Thankyou so much Julie and Tracey for making us so welcome , will be seeing you again !

Room Tip: We had the premier room , and it was extremely quiet and private.

The decor is a bit old fashioned, for example floral carpets in the hallway and wood pannelling.

However, the whole place is spotlessly clean and the breakfast perfectly cooked and served with a smile.

Perhaps a little expensive for a B&B, but it is close to the NEC, so maybe that's the going rate.

I'd certainly consider staying there again.

I strongly recommend this B&B having recently picked it as a convenient place to stay to access the LG Arena. It is beautifully maintained, in a lovely residential area and run by Julie who is a wonderful host and really goes out of her way for her guests. It was home away from home - immaculate with all the little touches that make a place special and personal. The breakfast was absolutely delicious !! Thanks again Julie (and Tracy) for your hospitality.

This is the best B&B we have stayed at, we visit the Birmingham NEC twice a year and find this guesthouse not only ideally located but perfectly presented. The accomadation is absolutely spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, no attention to detail missed. Julie makes you feel most welcome in her home as does her sister Tracey. The breakfast cannot be faulted, you are spoilt for choice with good quality food from the cereals on offer, to the mix of fresh fruit to the fantastic English cooked breakfast. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at this place to everyone. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Our favourite room is number 8

We have stayed at Black Firs during August each year over the last five years, and never cease to be amazed at the friendly yet professional exceptionally high quality of service and hospitality we receive from Julie and her team. We do a lot of international business travel each year and we can confidently say that Black Firs is the best B&B that we have ever stayed at. It is exceptionally clean and meticulously presented, beautifully decorated and the dining room is just exquisite. The garden is also exceptional in its beauty and presentation and Julie, the hostess is very hos pitiful, charming and extemely helpful and it is clear how much pride Julie takes in running the Guesthouse.
The breakfast is superb with every little detail thought of, perfect perfectly cooked!, fresh seasonal strawberries, blueberries, just the best! The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean,the rooms and beds are extremely comfortable with the bedding fresh and luxurious.
We leave for home in NZ today, but have already booked for next year!!!
Regards, David & Christine
