Booked to stay here on 24th & 25th November to visit family in West Midlands and do some shopping. The hotel is located 5 minutes from junction1 of the M5. The location is fairly suburban on a cut through road to West Bromwich town centre - not that you'll hear much noise.
On arrival the check in with the owner was quick and efficient and there was a huge well lit car park to the rear.
On entering the room it was a little chilly, but soon resolved by turning the raidiator up a notch. We were in the family room - consisted of a double and single bed. The room was a nice size with 2 windows. The decor was neutral/ white with a splash of colour in the form of some very good quality and very tasteful soft furnishings. The beds were comfortable and the quality fo the pillows and bed linen very good. There were plenty of coffee and tea and even biscuits!
The bathroom mirrored the same quality of the bed room and the towels were white and fluffy. The shower was great and the toiletries a really nice touch. The whole room was immaculate.
Breakfast was a continental affair - However this was far better than I had expected. Hot drinks, juice, cereals, toast (the bread is top notch and tastes great), fruit, yoghurts and even cheese, hams and boiled eggs! The service was great and the ladies serving us were extremely helpful.
The restarant is Italian - However we ate in the restaurant on Sunday and took advantage of the traditional Sunday Roast menu. This was really nice and offered a good choice, well cooked and flavoursome. My only regret is not trying the restaurant on Saturday and having the full italian experience.
