Ok, first of all I'm not the type of person to write a bad review unless it is absolutely called for, and I'm sorry to say after my Friday night stay at The Strawberry Bank I was left feeling very disappointed and short changed for the price.

I stayed here while attending an event at the NEC. Lovely cosy little find, rooms to snuggle up in, but no phones. Homely atmosphere, pretty garden overlooking fields in the delightful village of Meriden.
