Okay Hotel Fairly good location fair sized room roomy bathroom. Breakfast average But the only real problem was the door. The door was mainly wooden with some glass. However the glass was transparent and therefore if you looked closely enough you could see into the room. I didn't like the thought of somebody looking in on me whilst I was asleep so I improvised and put some paper over the transparent section. Other than that a nice hotel

Room Tip: Bring Paper and sellotape to cover up the glass

We stayed here purely because it was cheap, we were on a tight budget, and it is close to Drayton Manor. Worst bathroom I have EVER seen. Pink mould all over shower recess, skankiest looking bathroom ever. We washed in the sink.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 12 - avoid this, re awful bathroom, and close proximity to loud tv in bar area.

Had a wonderful time staying here for 2 nights. A double room located above the pub that was quite and my daughter stayed in the family room that lend to the back courtyard area. Located 10 mins from Drayton Manor. Rooms clean and comfortable, Staff very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast set us up for the day. Would stay again.

We paid £50 for two people for B&B. The rooms were extremely clean and well prepared and the design was modern without going over the top. This is basically a pub with rooms either in the main building or in a courtyard. The breakfast was more than ample and was delivered hot! A good budget accommodation.

Room Tip: Don't ask for a front room during the weekend as the pub is open until 12.00 and it's noisy...

We had booked this room for 2 nights to attend a wedding at Tamworth Castle. Both the Castle and the town centre are about a 5 minute walk,so perfect location. We didn't pay much for the rooms,about the going rate for the area,so didn't expect too much but we were very happy with what we got.
The landlord/lady were very friendly and welcoming. The bar and restaurant both seemed clean and well looked after.
The room was pretty basic,but quite large with nice decor and a good sized bathroom with shower in a roomy bathroom. Quality towels and bedding and a comfy mattress made for a great nights sleep.
Breakfast was well cooked and tasty with good selection of cereals etc and plenty of seating available.
The bar does become lively in the evenings and after a good crawl around the towns many bars and pubs,we found the Arms to have the best atmosphere so many of us wedding guests stayed here and closed the place (on time,so don't worry about being kept up late by noisy drinkers)
We got to see some of the rooms at hotels that other guests were staying in and paying more for. They all seemed tired,dull and somewhat seedy. We just smiled and pretended to be impressed knowing we had obviously made a better choice of were to stay.
HIGHLY recommend this little gem and hope this kind of review doesn't cause a price increase!

Room Tip: Saw 2 different rooms and both were equally nice. No views to mention due to location inside town ar...
