Do not recommend this hotel. The rooms are very dated and freezing!! The radiator is on a low heat with no way of altering the temperature. Reception staff told me this was an ongoing issue for the hotel and that management won’t do anything about it. They initially offered me a portable heater but after waiting in reception for half an hour, was then told they had all been distributed to other rooms and there was nothing they could do. There was also a strong smell of cannabis in the hotel which management didn’t seem to care about!

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.

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.
