We needed, at short notice, a place to stay in or near Castle Bromwich. The Castle Bromwich Inn served our purpose extremely well. Friendly and helpful reception staff; a clean and functional room on the second floor; and a satisfactory 'continental' breakfast on a 'do it yourself' basis, provided just what we needed. Although very near to main roads, we... More

This place would be perfect for one nighters after a show at the NEC. Good value for money, clean and a good size room, bed was a little soft and my daughter slept on a sofa bed. It is also very close to the fort shopping centre so you can get a good breakfast for £5 at Frankie and Benny's.... More

Spent 4 day here for a business conference close by. The rooms were fit for purpose and can't really find fault except for a very soft bed - which was more like a bouncy castle but it not ruin overall satisfaction. What I can definitely find fault in is the depressed staff behind the desk. We all have bad days... More

The reception staff were on two ends of the spectrum, quiet and timid through to brash and bolshy. Neither you'd expect to be working on a hotel reception!

Duncurin was in Birmingham, visiting students and friends and it therefore made sense to stay over. I must say it was wonderful to be in Castle Bromwich: for the place has a great buzz about it and of course one still feels the presence of the Spitfire factory from all those years ago. The CBI is an excellent choice at... More
