“A lovely stopover”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Stayed one night while visiting the NEC for the Gadget Show.
The guest house is lovely, very clean, landlady very friendly, spacious family room and a fab breakfast. Would definitely recommend this place in a really nice village setting and only 15 mins from the NEC.
The Railway pub is opposite and The Swan just a minutes stroll where we had our evening meal, which was nice.

We stayed two nights while visiting Camper & Caravan Exhibition at NEC in Nov. We were welcomed by Jan a lovely lady and occupied a large bedroom on the top floor. It was comfortable & quiet although very windy & wet outside we were warm & snug inside.Door was a little heavy and noisy but no other problems.Bed was very comfy. Jan was great - very helpful with finding bus times and ordering a taxy with advice on where to obtain an evening meal. There are several good establishments within walking distance. Breakfast was very good with a wide verity to choose from. A great lady and guest house you will be "well looked after" we recommend it to you.

Room Tip: Top floor bedroom plenty of space

Excellent place to stay for the NEC, its just round the corner.... and down a few roads.... little bit of a drive but worth it for the quiet location. Very weloming from day one, stayed at the top with a group of 3 friends, private bathroom across the landing (1 step away). Lovely pub across the road (conveniently walking distance if all 3 firends want to have a few glasses of wine after a hard days shopping from the clothes show!!) Will be staying again!

A business trip to NEC for two days stayed two nights, Jan is very welcoming and it's like staying home. Jan has been in customer service all her working life and it does show. Quality accommodation along with a craking breakfast, clean and warm. It's only about six miles from NEC and easy to get to, I would recommend the Railway Guest House if your attending any conference or show there. Good value for money with plenty of room to park. Keep it up Jan.

Stayed here for one night with my Dad while we were going to gadget show live in a twin room with an en-suite bathroom . The breakfast was incredible( a proper full English breakfast, YUM YUM ). The Guest House was a minute's walk from a lovely pub which did incredible food. The lady that owns the place is really kind, definitely coming here again. 10/10 It was an amazing experience.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views.

Stayed here November 4th because of the proximity to the NEC [5 miles away] and had a triple room for hubby and me and granddaughter. Arrived at nine at night and received a very warm welcome from Janice the proprietor. Our room was a very good size with a fabulously comfy double bed and a single. Lovely white, plump towels and flannel on the beds & our bathroom was across the hall, all was beautifully clean.
After a good nights sleep we went down for our breakfast. We didn't need to eat until much later in the day! A full English meant just that, after juices, cereal & yoghurts on offer too all delivered to the table with a smile.
All in all a very guest focused experience. Highly recommended.
