I struggled to find a hotel at the last minute in Birmingham, due to sports events taking place, and fell upon the Wetherspoons Hotel, Briar Rose.
Not sure what to expect, I was taken aback by the quality of my room, the size of it was great and the comfortable bed made for a great nights sleep.
The bathroom was gorgeous, but if I have one criticism it is that the bath surround was very wide and so getting in to the bath to use the shower was difficult and did feel dangerous (I made this comment on my feedback sheet), but the shower was extremely powerful and the bath very deep too.
A great location, New Street with the main shops runs past the bottom of Bennetts Hill, and as the Christmas market had just started that day it was great to be so close to everything.
I ate in the wetherspoons pub itself, and the food was good but the service was extremely slow and it wasn't that busy at the time of ordering - just a minor whinge.
I would definately stay again and have already told a few people about the hotel.
