We didn't find check in particularly welcoming. We felt judged when we arrived being two men who had booked a double room. An assumption was made that we wanted a twin room and there was very clear body language from the seemingly already inconvenienced landlady, that she did not approve. At that point we felt unwelcome and uncomfortable. There was...

We booked to stay here as the hotel takes dogs. Our trip was to visit Nec for the Caravan and Motor home show. Our room was a good size double with en suite. Pity the bifold door didn't close properly. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room along with tv. Breakfast has to be booked...

Only positive, close to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Stayed 1 night only, that was more than enough. Large building, very sad and dirty decor in the house. Room small, bathroom dirty, cracked tiles, mould in shower, excrement on the toilet seat and smelt of urine. Owners demand payment for room on arrival, very little people skills. Booked and paid for one...

This is a very unfair review . This man may be ill but there is no need for him to take it out on others. We are not a five star Hotel and do not pretend to be , but we make every effort to ensure that our guests have a good stay with us and we hope that they...

I agree that this hotel should not have so many bad reviews, if you are looking for upmarket then pay the money and stay in a chain hotel! I stayed here last night and certainly got what I paid for. I expected the worst after reading the reviews but they are very unfair. Very close to the university, quiet location....

This little inn hidden in the Selly Park is recommendable to all who attend to a conference or any other event at the University of Birmingham. Just a few minutes walk brings you on the red brick campus. Rooms are little with old fashioned furniture but comfortable beds. The full breakfast served is worth the money.

Only positive is it is a walk away from the University and restaurants. Terrible B & B.... Old fashioned room door with a yale lock. Unmentionable splash marks on the inside of the toilet/shower room door!!

I think it is a bit unfair that this hotel has such bad reviews. I stayed here on a Saturday night and it was by far one of the cheapest options. It is easy to say 'you get what you pay for' but the fact is, if you want a Jury's Inn experience, then you must pay for it. Despite...

Owners very distance just took the card for payment give us the room key and never seen him again. Thought we may have shown us around the house or meal times, we got up to see if breakfast may be available no personal around. A note on the wall of hall way saying leave keys on the side and close...

The Awentsbury was pretty cheap and did the job for me. I was staying in town for one night to visit some friends, and needed a bed. I didn't get a particularly comfortable one but my stay wasn't the horror show some other reviewers here evidently had. The wifi worked fine and the staff were perfectly pleasant.

The bedroom was awful, mattress was rotten, couldn't sleep at all. The towels was dirty and breakfast was basic. The staff was not very friendly and would not recommend to go there again. This is old fashioned and need update to modernisation. Shower room was tiny in twin bedroom. I would not recommend for anyone who don't like old fashion...

“My tip would be to simply book a different hotel! Or at least check there's a shower in your ensuite.”
  • Hole where the shower had been removed
  • Loose Yale lock
  • Folding door to ensuite with knob missing
