Great Value!”

My room was amazing value and the location was great too and really easy to find. I enjoyed the tasty, free breakfast and would definitely stay there again for that price. My only issue was that the heating didn't seem to work in my room and the hot water was tepid, so I was put off having a bath or shower for the one night I stayed.

Dirty Room”

We stayed here in April and had a super room. Unfortunately on thus occasion the superior room we booked had a temporary heating source. I'd have put up with this if the room had been cleaned. Full bin, unmade bed with dirty sheets! I didn't look in the bathroom for fear of what I might find. The receptionist did find us another room, but the damage was done. We won't be returning.

The Great Barr Hotel Birmingham”

Located 10 km out of Birmingham City, the Hotel caters for a range of guests. The room I stayed in had a single bed, wardrobe, TV, tea/coffee facilities, bath/shower, toilet, basin. A complimentary breakfast was available on the 2 days that I stayed, with a selection of cereals, toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, tomato, mushrooms and fresh fruit. Tea/coffee/juice was also available. The Hotel itself is set back from the main road, and is relatively quiet. However, on the 2nd night of stay, guests in the adjoining room had returned from a night out and were quite noisy until 3:30am, making it difficult to sleep. Other than this, I would recommend this hotel as representing excellent value for money.
