Tired hotel.

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: Grounds
An over night visit resulted in quite a disappointing stay. Tired d├ęcor that needs a bit of a revamp, but surrounded by lovely grounds and golf course. Room extremely clean. Reception staff lovely, very friendly and helpful. Food in Oaks Grill just satisfactory but never been so hurried through a meal in my life. Waitress surly and whipped husbands plate from him when he still had a mouthful of food! Immediately asking did we want dessert! We ate early so they were certainly not waiting to go home!! Not impressed with any staff in the restaurant. Breakfast ok. Think we would look elsewhere if needing to stay over in Birmingham again

Good Hotel in Beautiful Surroundings

Posted May 24, 2014
Pros: Tucked away, remote and beautiful surroundings.
Cons: Restaurant staff could be a little more friendly and cheerful!
Location: We stayed overnight after attending a concert at the LG Arena, just a short cab ride away.
Very friendly reception staff, lovely room - clean, spacious and a very comfortable bed! Dinner in the restaurant was very good - excellent braised beef, the best I've had and breakfast was good too. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens, well kept and maintained. Our stay was for just one night, shame we weren't staying longer but would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Surroundings

Posted Feb 19, 2014
Pros: Expedia
The Forest of Arden Hotel was a welcome retreat after a busy day at the NEC. Only 10 minutes away it was convenient to get to. The room were extremely comfortable and after a lovely dinner we enjoyed a relaxing evening in the pool and sauna. I found it very reasonably priced, having previously stayed at hotel at the NEC which charge through the roof. Will definitely be back.
