The B&B is in a great location for anyone visiting the NEC or Stoneleigh. The en-suite rooms are a good size, very clean and comfortable. There are some very nice touches, the galley kitchen for guests to use has a vast assortment of teas and coffees, even de-caff which was a welcome change from using my own. Breakfast is a choice of all the usual things you would expect, including a full english if you have a healthy appetite. There is also a TV for guests use in the lounge/dining room as well as in the bedrooms. The lounge is great if you are a party and want to spend some time together other than sitting in the bedrooms.
We have tried several hotels and B & B's in the Kenilworth/Balsall Common area, but this is the only one we would definetly return to. We would recommend the White Horse for their Sunday roast and the Beefeater George in the Tree for steaks etc. both only a 5 minute car journey from Gilly & Grants.
