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.

Another good stay at The Great Barr Hotel. Great location for exploring the area and access to the motorway network. Rooms are quite large and have all the usual facilities. Bar/restaurant area good and staff helpful. Buffet breakfast is huge and lovely. Parking is free and secure with the added reassurance of being gated. Highly recommended

The Double Room was a bit on the small side and the bed being only a standard double, and with a well used mattress, was not exactly comfortable. The in room WiFi did not work either.

Very pleasantly surprised for location and price”
One first arrival the sign was a bit tatty and wondered if we had booked a mistake but once we entered the building worry’s disappeared we found a nice cosy little bar with the most friendliest barman whilst waiting for our room . Once in our room it was basic but clean and comfy only con we came across was there’s no iron in the room but pros there’s lots of nice little toiletries and tea and coffee supplies , restaurant in the bar was delicious a nice range of food very quick service an again nice staff . Once in our room for the night due to its location was lovely and quiet no noise at all for a good night sleep in what was a very comfy bed , breakfast in the morning was again met by nice staff an had lots of choice being constantly topped up with fresh foods left feeling very full

Looks good but that's about it. ”
First impression as I drove up the gate was impressive, plenty of parking is available. One receptionist who was constantly answering the phone. Quite a small room (I had a superior single) but adequate space. Milk in room was rancid, however and there was some difficulty getting replacement. I couldn't log onto the WiFi although the signal was strong, which was very disappointing. I out out a breakfast card with a request for toast and cereal as I was leaving early in the morning but this was still on the outside door knob when I left. Room cleaners very squalid in turning out rooms in to the corridor when I returned to my room later and had to pick my way through the detritus to get my bag. Could have made a better impression.

Random Tapping”
My colleague had a sleepless night due to a constant tapping coming from the adjacent store room. No idea what it was. Rodents perhaps? The lock on his door was poorly fitted - not offering much security. To cap it all off, 2 lads returned back to their rooms at 3:30am making a racket. Very expansive drinks at the bar. Also, the Malt Shovel round the corner is pretty rough - but incredibly cheap.

Very small room which smelled damp and smoky ”
I have stayed at this hotel many times both as a solo traveller and with my partner when visiting relatives mainly owing to its location. The room allocation has varied considerably from a room which can only be classified as a broom cupboard to a kind gesture of a free upgrade. On the whole it is a reasonable choice but there does seem to be emphasis placed on guests who are there as part of a function over loyal and returning guests when it comes to quality of room allocated.
