a lovely hotel with plenty of character and within a gentle stroll into Birmingham centre. The hotel itself was lovely and clean, room was more than adequate, breakfast was superb and the staff were very friendly and cheerful . We would definitely return.

HI yes you can walk to the arena from the hotel, it takes about thirty minutes... or there is a good bus service, bus stop is just down on the left hand side from the hotel.

There are quite a few buses that go that way to Five Ways and along Hagley Road, don't know the numbers but there is a West Midlands travel route planner which will guide you.
