Certificate of Excellence
A modern, quiet, clean and extremely comfortable b&b with wi-fi near the NEC Birmingham giving you the privacy and independance that you need and all the help that you want. Perfect for small groups looking to stay together while visiting the area or the NEC. G&G B&B is in the village of Balsall Common with a post office, a late opening Co-op, small Tescos and Sainburys, a Shell Garage and an excellent variety of eating places - good pubs and Indian restaurants - all within walking distance. Plenty of driveway parking. The village railway station - Berkswell Station - has it's own free car park and is just 2 stops from the NEC
