Accommodation Description:

Standing in its own gardens, this traditional red brick Victorian Hotel provides an oasis of calm, whilst being close to the city centre. The hotel boasts a comfortable and appealing Cocktail Bar and Lounge. The hotel once played host to J R R Tolkien, who was brought up in the local area.

The Bull Ring Shopping Centre, National Sea Life Centre, Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Glass House, Cadbury World, and the NEC, NIA and Symphony Hall are just a few of the local attractions that are easily accessible from the hotel.In the year 1704, during the reign of Queen Anne, local craftsmen built a wayside inn with extensive stabling, and at that time it was surrounded by meadows and ploughed fields. Part of the stables still remain and the ancient brickwork has been carefully preserved, so too the old vaulted cellars that retain the craftmanship of 1704. Please note due to the age of the building disabled access is limited.

Please contact the hotel for further details.
