When I walked through the door, instantly I fell into the world of Shakespeare. It was amazing. The rooms were classic yet modern. The staff (Shama in particular) were so welcoming and nice! Unfortunately I broke a wall by tripping. No problem for the swift hotel staff however. Breakfast was delicious and cooked just how I like it. Will definitely... More

Arden House is a surprise, nestled in a very comfortable and well to do estate. The staff and manager were hugely welcoming, and made me feel extremely relaxed after what had been a stressful and busy day. The room had everything I required (and more -- a snack box), and when I asked to borrow an iron, they took my... More

This B&B answered our needs as it is very convenient to the NEC. It was very clean, the bedroom was a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. But the bathroom was extremely small and would not be suitable for a larger person. There was plenty to eat for breakfast and a good choice on the menu. But was... More

Stayed here while visiting the NEC. We arrive early unannounced and were made to feel welcome straight away. Check in was straight forward, the rooms were nice and the bathroom clean and modern. We left the car at the property then walked (10 mins) to Marston Green station to catch the train to the NEC (£2.10 return). Plenty of choice... More

Attended Dive15 at the NEC and booked one night at this excellent guest house. Friendly welcome, well appointed rooms, great shower. Breakfast was also good. Good value for money. Shakespearean theme - we slept in the Othello room. Recommended.

Very nice and clean accommodation with extremely friendly hosts. Great value and only 10 minutes from NEC which is great if you're attending an event like we were. Would definitely recommend Arden House and would certainly stay there again in the future.
