I travel to Birmingham to teach for Cadbury's quite a lot. I live in Doncaster, therefore, I need to find a base local to the factory. I have tried quite a few of the local hotels and can say they were not the best. So I decided to travel further a field in my quest to find a good nights sleep.
The Old Rose and Crown was pleasent, a good size room, clean and tidy, and a very comfortable bed. The staff were pleasent and attentive. The only downside was the lack of connectivity to the internet.
As a businessman I need to be on-line all of the time. I found myself using the mobile phone to tether to my laptop to get on-line. This was a problem as there was poor coverage on the 3 Network and therefore, the signal would drop out (very frustrating).
Would I stay again? Yes.
