“Absolute Bargain, sound owner and staff”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We arrived late and thought the place was shutdown completely but we banged on the door and then got the best quality and service we have ever gotten from a hotel. Absolute bargain, not too far from airport. Parking nearby too.

Room Tip: Its difficult to get three separate single beds on the one room in most hotels but they have them he...

Reviewed 24 June 2013

Those who have reviewed before us have done us a disservice. The immediate area around the pub looks like its from war torn Sarajevo. The pub from the outside looks derelict and does not improve much once on the inside. The room was neat but that is as good as it gets. The twin beds had no head boards, very puny pillows and no valance.The mattresses could not be described as comfortable. The furniture was rickety as were the windows, which had cracks in them and appalling curtains. Unless you live in a major city you will find the noise from the street during the night unbearable. The lid from the toilet cistern was on the floor and the flush mechanism hanging out. The walls were dirty and there were cobwebs in the ceiling corners around the room.
on the plus side, the staff were friendly and very helpful.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Brighton Arms, made feel very welcome on arrival and the standards were maintained during our short stay. Met two real characters in the bar named Sid and Leeds, would happily have paid double just for their company!

The Hotel was good quality for the price. The service was amazing, really friendly staff and management. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The hotel provided a good and timely cab service, and is located only 10 minutes from the town centre. I Would stay there again in a heart beat.

Our first look at the Brighton Arms nearly convinced us to keep driving - it looks like a fairly run down back street boozer in a down market part of town. Once we got inside, that opinion was reinforced...

On the plus side, the greeting was friendly, our rooms were ready early and the pub is seemingly open until all hours. The standard of hospitality throughout was great, chatty staff and owner (Wendy), breakfast cook/server/barmaid. And the kitchen seemed spotlessly clean.

As the rooms cost us an average of £18 per person per night, our expectations were pretty low and they were fully realised. The rooms were pretty shabby. Wardrobe doors hanging off, shower cubicles falling apart, fire alarm point hanging off the wall, door handles wobbly. They were clean ehough, showers were hot, bedding clean - but the place screams out for a bit of basic maintenance that could be done in half a day with a basic toolbox and by someone who gives a s**t.

What I will remember forever were the bar regulars - more tattoos then LA Ink and a seemingly inexhaustable appetite for strong lager. If I had just walked in off the street for a beer I would have walked straight out again - but they were all actually very friendly and after the initial impression not scary at all!

Would I recommend it? Although it has provided one of the most outstanding memories of my Stag weekend you would need to have a pretty strong constitution and sense of adventure to enjoy a stay here. But thanks to Wendy anyway for a fun time!

I stayed with a friend one night (Saturday night) and we liked very much the hotel. Nice people, specially Wendy and Chris. The room was very clean, and the situation is good; 1 hour walking from New Street Station. If you're looking for a cheap, friendly and clean hotel, "Brighton Arms" is excellent!!

The brighton is located in the South of Birmingham & wefound the rooms to be very comfortable & all ensuite. We were up there for a party on the Friday night & ended up staying an extra night as we enjoyed Birmingham & we were made to feel very welcome. Its a good bar & the food was enjoyable.
