“It Is Exactly What It Says On The Tin!!”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

This accommodation is advertised as a "luxury guest house" and it's just that. No expense has been spared on the decor. The spacious bedrooms have modern solid wood furniture and a comfortable bed and the en-suites have top end fixtures and fittings and marble tiles. The breakfast is excellent and includes a quality full English cooked to order.
The property is just a ten or fifteen minute drive from the NEC / LG Arena or Forest Of Arden Golf Club. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I have stayed here over a dozen times and I am always made welcome, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are lovely, with warm towel rails and good showers (not all rooms have a bath). The breakfasts are nicely prepared and filling ! Great location for the NEC.

Barncroft was a great place to stay in after exhibiting at the NEC. After a tiring days work, we were able to get back in 10 minutes to a warm, clean, quiet and comfortable place. The rooms are extremely homely and spacious with large wardrobes and plenty of drawers. The bathroom was clean and had a spacious and powerful shower. There was a great choice for breakfast and it was always quick, warm and freshly made. The owners were extremely generous in allowing us to eat in the breakfast room for our evening takeaways and for washing our odd pieces of clothing. We have already booked to stay again next year. I would highly recommend Barncroft!

We had the pleasure of staying at Barncroft Guest House for two nights and could not fault it at all. Wanting some time to unwind and take in a concert at the LG Arena, we were looking for somewhere close to the NEC and LG Arena and this was perfect. Took us less than 10 minutes to get to the concert and that includes parking at the event. Perfect. The rooms were unbelievably modern and very well equipped. Comfy bed and the cleanliness was amazing and the food was more like a high class restaurant than a local B & B. The owners were very friendly and family orientated and made our stay very nice and accommodating. Tripadvisor is an excellent site to let you know what we think about Barncroft but my recommendation is that you book it up and go see for yourself! Absolutely brilliant and a well-earned five stars!! Thank you.

Large and well-appointed room and bathroom, comfortable bed, quiet with no evidence of the nearby road, lovely breakfast - and friendly owners, who were very helpful in finding me a laptop charger.

There are pubs nearby and a sensibly priced minibar (a rarity), so if you don't need a hotel bar or onsite restaurant, this place has all you need and done very well.

I don't like the NEC - the traffic jams, the extortionate prices, the unfriendliness of the place - but sometimes I have to be there so what a pleasure to find this great B&B that is the opposite: close, quality and reasonably priced.
Large rooms with high quality decor and fittings, good breakfast, lovely peaceful setting, friendly, helpful owners.
We have already booked for the next show.

Room Tip: all are large and quiet

I stayed here back in June and it was better than any hotels I have previously stayed in!
The room we were allocated was modern with plenty of space and the most comfortable bed.

Its in the perfect location for both the NEC and getting into Birmingham.
Breakfast was also brilliant.

Would definitely stay here again!
In fact I would struggle to find anywhere as good as here!
