What a brilliant place to stay: excellent location, superb spacious bedroom ( very comfortable bed, sofa, easy chair, desk, brilliant ensuite large shower). Very welcoming, friendly staff, fantastic breakfast fare. Tops most of the higher priced hotels I have stayed in. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone for business or pleasure purposes.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 119 first floor at the rear of the hotel; very quite.

We stayed 2 nights for a visit to the Frankfurt Xmas market in Birmingham.
The Eaton Hotel is easily found on Hagly road ,yet convenient for events in the city..
A clean modernised hotel ,comfortable rooms and charming staff.
We. Only ate breakfast in the hotel,and thoroughly enjoyed the combination of buffet
And full range of cooked breakfasts, everything was superb.
You should not hesitate to book this delightful and affordable hotel

Room Tip: Not all rooms have baths,some whilst having lovely modern bathrooms,are only fitted with a shower,so...

Booked after reading reviews.Just returned from a one night stay to visit the German Christmas fair.We had room 131 which faced the quieter rear of the hotel.The room we had was tidy enough and nice big bed comfortable but the carpet had quite a number of stains over it and could do with a proper carpet shampoo clean .Looks to me that a good "service" is needed to this room as a hole in shower wall and bits of furniture seen better days.Yes the staff are very attentive and helpful generally although we did have to "find" someone to take our Breakfast order as we seemed to have been forgotten.Re the German fair ......well,not really impressed at all and disappointing .The one memory i have of it is that every-other stall sold either food to eat on the spot or was a beer stall and not really anything else worth buying that you cant get in the high anyway.And to cap it all,you just cant move freely as so overcrowded.Dont take children or wheelchairs/pushchairs.

Room Tip: front facing rooms are noisy due to continues traffic through the night.get a rear facing room

The hotel is only a couple of miles out of the town centre. It has parking and a great welcome when you go in. The rooms are very clean with all the facilities you need .the breakfast is exception but the breakfast staff where the best I've seen in years.
I will go back whenever I'm in Birmingham . Top marks staff.

Room Tip: Any room. They are all good

Stayed at the Eaton Hotel bed and breakfast 2 nights for a weekend family celebration in Birmingham. Reception was courteous, friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were modern, clean and beyond our expectations and the shower was great. Breakfast, a full English was served in a lovely dining room by friendly, happy and helpful staff. Perfect place to stay for a weekend in Brum. We will definitely stay there again because besides all the above the cost was reasonable and was terrific value. Highly recommend this hotel.

It is important to note that this hotel does not proport to be 5* and it doesn't have the facilities that one would expect of that type of establishment. However what the eaton does do, it does well! We stayed 2 nights. The hotel is very conveniently located for junction 3 of the M5 and is not far from Bournville and the associated tourist sites. The car park is a reasonable size and FREE a huge plus point for Birmingham. The front of house staff were very friendly and the hotel has obviously been recently refurbished and looks clean and fresh with some nice pieces of art. .Our room on the second floor faced the rear over-looking pretty st Augustines church and the car park. the room was a good size with very comfortable bedding. There are adequate tea/coffee making facilities and a large television the wardrobes are quite generous and contain trouser presses and safes. There are no mini-bars though (please note this). The en-suite contained a newly appointed suite of shower toilet and wash-stand. the shower was extremely effective. 2 small minus points. no1. There is no moisturiser provided, only shampoo and bodywash. no.2 the light is not well positioned above the mirror/shaving point, so me end up having shadow across half their face when shaving....If I was being very pickie, the extractor fan is quite loud in the bathroom, but not a big problem. In general the room was extremely quiet and there was not a great deal of sound transference. We dined out in the evenings, but had breakfast in the restaurant. it is a lovely, light airy and elegant room. There is a good selection available on the buffet. Pastries, fruit, yoghurts, cereals, meat cheese etc. In addition to this, you can elect to have full or continental breakfasts served which utilized high quality ingredients. There were also several egg options. Coffee and tea or chocolate waitress served. Refills were proffered and the staff in all points of the hotel were friendly courteous and helpful. We secured a very good price for these two nights and were very pleasantly surprised with the quality, We would definately stay at the Eaton again if in Birmingham, and would recommend their services to others.

stayed here for one nite at the weekend with my friend to attend the xmas market.

this hotel is lovely !!!!!!!

It cost us £6 each way for a taxi into town

We had a twin room on the side of the hotel and were amazed to get two double beds ! The shower was excellent, there was everything in the room you could need - hairdryer, iron, toiletries etc. The room was very clean.

We had an evening meal which quite simply was superb. we had chicken a la crème and it was a very large portion with lovely tastes. It was silver service and we were treated very well by a mature waiter and waitress.

Breakfast was excellent. We were warned the hotel was full so there might be a wait at 9am so we went down early. Lovely plated breakfast and all you could need on the cold buffet including thick sliced ham and fresh fruit.

We would love to go back here again and again and again !!!

Having stayed at the plough and harrow down the road this is not comparision - far far better

Definitely the place to go if you are staying in Birmingham and visited the markets

well done to the eaton !!!

Room Tip: get a side room
