“Beautiful afternoon tea”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

What a very pleasant afternoon tea I enjoyed with my friends at Hotel la Tour, with gorgeous food and cups of tea. Excellent service and friendly staff. Easy walking distance from Moor Street Station too.

As afternoon tea gets more properly its gets harder and harder to stay ahead on the competition and do something different that stands out! It is always marvellous to hear our guests appreciate our efforts. Thank you. Regards Jane Riley

A brilliantly up to date modern hotel with all of the amenities, some added extras and great staff.

I can not speak highly enough of my stay. The rooms were very well appointed, immaculately tidy & contained many gadgets and nice features. A definite recommendation for anyone wishing to stay close to the heart of Birmingham and enjoy a good quality hotel.

We held a special recognition dinner (45 people) and although the food was run of the mill, the staff made up for it. Very well organised, very curteous and all had smiles.

Thank you to jess for making my it so easy to book a special valentines afternoon tea for my hubby and me, jess ensured the special dietary requirements were catered for and even let us book and earlier time then advertised, on arrival our host Karen was very friendly and double checked our dietary needs as well as our preferences, she was knowledgeable and so smiley, the afternoon tea itself was delicious and plenty,the manager also introduced himself and took the time to ask how we enjoyed the experience and jess also asked if everything had gone well, which of course it had, the hotel, the staff and the food is all great and I can't wait to go again.

Very modern, and I think recently built hotel near the shopping malls and center of Birmingham, featuring spacious and quiet rooms full of fancy electronic gadgets. I especially liked touch screen controlled alarm clock, do not disturb sign and room lights. Wifi is free and it works. They even have autometed check in / out machines.
But I cannot forget to mention the service - we have received free drinks because of a wait for dessert. Was no issue, but still, very nicely handled by one of the waitresses (slight black haired girl - sorry, I didn't get her name). Menu in the restaurant is not very good though, but if you don't want to walk anywhere, it is enough, it has one of each basic food groups - fish, steak, chicken, salat :)
I would recommend this place to anyone.

myself and my partner stayed here for our 10yr anniversary. I'd looked at several hotels and went for this one due to the reviews. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite free of charge (I'd booked a superior room originally) and wow was the missus impressed (so was I infact). loved all the modern gadgetry as well.
The cocktail bar was great as well, we enjoyed a few before venturing out to Purnells for dinner.
Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and I'd like to say thank you to everyone at Hotel La tour for making our anniversary special.

We Will Be Back!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: If its for a special occasion go for a suite, you won't regret it.

Great to hear you enjoyed your visit and the fact you were recommend is even better, As a stand alone privately owned hotel playing against the big boys is hard, and it is great that word is getting out, as our aim of being the hotel of choice is Birmingham is our goal. Recommendations and repeat business is so very important to us and I looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Regards Jane Riley
