Stayed for one night. The room was lovely and clean and the staff very pleasant. We had breakfast in weatherspoons and it was also very nice. Would definitely stay here again if we come to Birmingham.

Having stayed at the Briar Rose previously with no real issues we booked again with no thoughts of worry. Our room on the second floor was clean and adequate. However the extraction fan from outside made sleeping difficult and when they stoked it up for breakfast at 6am the noise was unbearable. This was made worse by the lumpy mattress....

You cannot fault either its location, or value-for-money. Situated in the heart of the city, and for a perfectly reasonable price, we were happy with our choice.
