I stayed here for a week in November of 2010. The hosts were a Polish couple I believe, they were very friendly and accomodating, without intruding themselves on you. My room was clean and well maintained and had WiFi. It is close to a major road but the noise is not intrusive and actually I don't even remember hearing it. Not too far from Birmingham airport, and if you do not have a car there's a bus stop right around the corner.
The only glitch I experienced was the (typical for some areas of the UK) low water pressure pressure in the shower in the bathroom.
