One night stay. Large wardrobe and plenty of space, decent bathroom, plenty of parking, and staff friendly enough. Badly decorated, worn down carpet, solid bed, more focus on the events side of the facilities and less on the over-night visitors. Very average stay, practical one night stay if you have business nearby but other than this I wouldn't bother.

Even though this hotel is mainly utilised for conferences, I used it for a procedure at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The staff could not be more helpful and the food was excellent. Good selection of continental breakfast till 0730 and the cooked breakfast from 0730 cooked to order. Beautiful surroundings, shame I couldn't take advantage of this area. Would book here again.

This is a management training centre type of facility that sells rooms and meals. The location is off the beaten track, but the local Bournville station is a short walk away. The room that I stayed in was single (as most seem to be, given the purpose of the building). It was basic but had all the necessary facilities and was spotless. The food was acceptable but definitely not something to go back for.

We stayed in a double room for one night at a weekend so it was nice and quiet as this is a business/conference hotel. We were visiting nearby Cadbury World and family who live close by so this hotel was very convenient for both.
Pluses - room was good size, as was the bathroom and this was well set out with a decent sized bath and shower over head.
We asked for a quiet room and it was - set in a block of 4 rooms in the grounds of the hotel.
usual nice amenities tray, trouser press (didnt work), nice settee area too!
On the downside - bed seemed amazingly small for a double! We rang reception & asked but she assured me they were all the same size or smaller...! we are not big people!!
Staff helpful and friendly.
room was booked through Trivago - very good price, £55,50 for the room and full breakfast for two people. A note of caution Trivago take all your card details and it appears the transaction has gone through at time of booking but in fact you pay the hotel direct on check-out-I was worried I'd paid twice but checking my bank it seems I havent...YET!
Would I recommend? Yes if you dont mind plain simple no frills accommodation in a business hotel, convenient for Cadbury World, you can walk from the hotel its 10 minutes away.
Note for the hotel - it would be a nice gesture if the tea and coffee - from a machine - in reception area was complimentary!!!

Room Tip: request a quiet room and it will be busier and I imagine a lot noisier during the week

We checked in fairly late one very chilly evening. The place is very rambling, with some external annexes. Our room was in one of these. On the second go, we managed to find a very clean but very cold room. When we rang reception, someone was there within minutes with a powerful electric heater. He'd also sorted the radiator quite quickly, and we were quite cosy after that.
Breakfast was a standard cooked English. Only small gripe there was the lack of unsmoked bacon, which didn't suit my husband. One morning the eggs arrived cooked wrongly, but a replacement arrived quickly.
We spent very little time at the hotel other than to sleep, but were quite pleased with it none the less. It seems the place is largely set up for conferences. But for our visit that was no problem at all.
