This was our second visit to the Briar Rose and the third to a Wetherspoon Hotel. Once again we were not disappointed with the fabulous value for money this hotel group provides as well as the brilliant location of the Briar Rose - a few minutes walk away from New Street station, close to China Town, theatres and all the shops you could wish for. We stayed this time as we were going to a gig at the 02 Academy which was a short 10 minute walk away and our previous visit to the hotel had impressed us so much we did not bother to look at any other hotels as the Briar Rose is ideal for a weekend stopover like ours. We stayed this time in a disabled room on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious, warm, clean and well-laid out for a wheelchair user or someone with limited mobility with a bathroom big enough to hold a party in!. Bed linen and towels were clean, bed comfortable and the stylish room design in fitting with the 30's style decor throughout the pub. Being a Friday, the pub was busy throughout the day and when we got back later at night. The hotel advise of some noise from the bar, but on both our visits we heard nothing at all to disturb our sleep despite the pub being full and open until 1 p.m.. Standard Wetherspoon fare that one expects on offer - reasonably cheap but tasty, and to my husband's delight, good priced beer and drinks. Again, as one expects from a Wetherspoon pub, an interesting range of customers to entertain one ranging from office staff and locals to tourists like us, as well as families partaking of the good family menu during the daytime. Staff were well-presented, prompt, helpful, courteous and happy to deal with any problems straight away. My less-than-warm breakfast (it was very early in the morning and a very cold day and the kitchen is away from the restaurant) was immediately replaced with a piping hot version and profuse apologies from the staff for the inconvenience. Lunch the previous day had been boiling hot so it may just have been the chilly morning. Check in is not allowed before 2 pm but staff are very happy to store bags securely if required. We will definitely be staying here again if the opportunity arises, and may even allow the kids to join us next time!
