Arden House
Reviewed April 1, 2012

It's our 18th wedding anniversary we arrived at Arden house at around 5 in the evening.It was not at all what we expected we had the picture of a bigger place in our minds,we were in two minds whether to cancel our booking and go on to a bigger place as this guest house did not have a bar and my husband being a lover of beer wanted a place to stay where it wouldn't be too far from from a place to drink and not having to drive . After talking to Raj( who I have to say is a very helpful host) layed on a complimentary bar and assured us that we would love our stay at his guest house and he was right . Very comfortable accommodation and wonderful homely service . Would we stay there again? I'd have to say we definitely would I loved it and my hubby loved it too see you soon raj and our love to you and your lovely wife and children too good luck in the future xxgood restaraunt recommendations x

I stayed in the Othello room which was surprisingly spacious for a single! everything was clean and tidy and the staff were very freindly and helpful.
If I was being very fussy, I would say that the TV in my room needs to be on a movable bracket as it is quite difficult to see when sitting on the bed.
And, although the scottish breakfast was lovely, it would benefit from a single, quality sausage, rather than 2 cheap ones!... but I'm being very picky!
overall... excellent

Recently stayed for 5 nights during the NEC Spring Fair and it was like a 'home away from home'. It was a welcome refuge after spending long, hard days tramping around the NEC. Very clean, comfortable rooms with all the necessary amenities, delicious breakfast and great heating system - especially valued during the recent cold winter weather! Everyone at Arden House is very welcoming, friendly and helpful - would highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed at Arden House and had a fantastic stay. We were welcomed by the friendly owners who made every effort to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The room was very spacious with a modern ensuit bathroom. They recommended a lovely restaurant called Longfellows where the hearty english food was a cut above the rest. Breakfast at the Guest House was made fresh and had plenty of options to choose from. I would definitely return, thank you for a lovely stay.

This was the second time we have stayed at Arden House. First time we booked a double room there back in April. The hotel met all our needs - located about a mile from Birmingham airport(we were coming back from our holiday); the price was reasonable compared to some of the other hotels we looked at; no problem with late check-in.
We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Our Hamlet room was nicely presented and spotlessly clean. It had the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in, a quality of bedding was excellent. There was everything that you could need in the room; all the facilities were good(shower, TV, tea&coffee). We were nicely surprised with the quality of breakfast. It was plenty of choise and cooked to order(as you would expect it at 5star hotel). We had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on the v.tasty granary toast. I was particularly pleased with my coffee - strong and full of aroma. It was very enjoyable stay!
Last week we went to the Classic Motor Show at the NEC. We booked a room at Arden House again. It was nice to come back after 7months and find this hotel at the same high standarts. From the moment we checked in the service was brilliant (personal attention of the owner/manager, excellent information - directions, taxi cost, restaurants). This time we stayed in Portia room, which was very comfortable too; a big nice bathroom.
Breakfast was delicious again. The staff were very friendly and chatty. This hotel has a homely feel about it.
Would definitely stay here again and again and would highly recommend to anyone who wants comfort, cosiness and excellent hospitality!
