We are a small independent gay run hotel centrally located in Birmingham City Centre. We are situated above the Fountain Inn bar in Birmingham's gay village just a stone's throw from the rest of the bars and nightclubs. The hotel offers clean, comfortable, modern rooms with 24 hour private access. All rooms have an en-suite wet room. Double bed, king size in most. Clean linen and towels, a Freeview TV and an alarm clock. Ironing facilities are also available as well as a complimentary coffee station offering fresh fruit, biscuits and hot drinks. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout. Owing to the hotel being above a bar please be aware that some noise will be heard during the bar operating hours especially at weekends. However the bar does not operate until the small hours and closes during the week at 11pm and at weekends around 2am.

Booked a room here last minute, it was cheaper than the travel lodge! Room was clean and modern with a nice wet room. Staff were great. No breakfast option but plenty of places nearby. Would stay here again.
