“Great hotel in great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

I stayed here with a friend for a weekend in Birmingham.

The location is brilliant, as is the price, and the rooms were clean and stylish.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

This hotel is a fantastic place, really well priced and thanks to some hard work from Wetherspoons and some serious spending, this is now a clean, bright tasteful hotel, at budget prices.

I have one adverse comment only. I walked into the reception and was greeted with

"hello there mate" ...

Now, I don't need fawning and grovelling, and the guy on reception is certainly a friendly go to guy, BUT....

I'm not his mate! So please Wetherspoons explain that "mate" is an informality too far..

Otherwise great, it's my hotel of choice when I work in Birmingham.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front of the building ... At the back can be noisy with bottle emptying at terribl...

Chose the Briar Rose because of its price and location. Both very good. A refurbished hotel with good sized, comfortable, clean, modern rooms. Well secured and the breakfast in the pub very good and reasonably priced too. Disappointed that Amex isn't accepted, however, a very small inconvenience. I would certainly stay again.

We stayed here on a Friday/Saturday night in October. The Briar Rose is within walking distance of all city attractions, we walked to a concert at the O2 Academy, Bull Ring, Mailbox, Brindley Place Canal and all were easily found. You can have a good cheap breakfast in the Wetherspoons downstairs. Rooms were clean, had coffee making facilities, hair dryer, tv. Only complaint is that the soap dispenser was empty in the shower and there were no cups in the bathroom for your toothbrush - however for the price, can't fault it!! Would stay here again when in Birmingham.

As other reviewers have said, this is a decent B&B above a weatherspoons pub.

The only problem was a rather noisy extractor fan during the night.
