            It's convenient location and quietness

            The staff at The Great Barr were extremely pleasant and helpful. We are vegeterians and the lady working in the dining room went to great lenghts to ensure we had enough to eat! Would definately stay there again.

          • Single
            7.0

            Location, Price, Free Wifi. Room and bed were both clean and decent choice of channels on the TV.

            As other reviewers have noted, it is a bit of a rabbit warren when trying to find your room. Whilst it is apparent that some updating has taken place, there is a long way to go to get all the rooms up to standard. Though my room was clean the chair was worn, the door needed a good slam to close it and the decor in general was very tired. Having said all that, I had a comfortable nights sleep, the location was excellent and all the foregoing should be balanced against the fact that the room was only £30 for the night.

            Very small bathroom. Was quite difficult to get a shoer as it was too low down

          • Single

            Needs major upgrading - very dated & old

            Location

          • Single
            8.2

            Nice staff. Made you feel welcome when you arrived. The room was quite nice. There was two big funtions going on with quite a bit of loud music but I couldn,t hear it from my room as the bedrooms are away from that area so I had a really good sleep.

          • Single
            6.6

            The Breakfast was fantastic, and for an overnight stay I was pleased with the rate.

            Unfortunately the stay was marred by a depressingly small room accessed by a maze of corridors. If all you want to do is sleep and shower.... Fine

          • Single
            7.4

            It was conveniently close to the person I was visiting.

            WiFi was dis-functional from the room I had.

            It was good it had a nice bar served food although I was informed that the restaurant was closed the evening I was ther but bar snacks were available and had entertainment on.

            The room was a bit tired the main areas were nice

            The room I ended up getting moved to at half past midnight

            Well where do I start..... On arrival at the hotel it took us 30min before the recepstionist got to us then to be told that they had giving my room away even tho I booked it a week before..they then said they had 1 room left but it had not been made up so they said that they where going to do it so I followed them up to the room to drop my bags off and they then told me that the room is being used by a member of staff it was stinking so after getting dinner I went back up to the room and it was disgusting the bed had yellow staines in it no duvet cover the toilet had lots of pubic hair lying everywhere the bin had not been emptied....so I went downstairs and complained they then said the room was 39pound a night but they charged me 50 pound for the first room I was meant to get and never got refunded..so they then said that they had a suite left but wanted me to pay a futher 100pound no way I said and all they kept on saying was the manager will go mad I had to laugh at that...the result was I got the suite for no extra charge but I will never step foot in that hotel again

            Excellent value for money. Comfy room and good food. Great to have free Internet access.

            With regards to the Internet access, concerned that this is provided via an unsecured network. This does not protect the hotel from liability claims or the customer from identify theft and/or fraud.
