Bed and Breakfast at Woodbrooke
Ranked #2 of 54 Birmingham B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2017

I booked the Woodbrooke on line for a one night B. & B. stay. I would like to have stayed longer as I found a haven of peace in this very rushed world of ours today. I received a warm welcome when I checked in and I found my single en suite room comfortable with a lovely view of the the wonderful gardens and pond. I wandered around and was directed to the library where I browsed for some time the excellent selection of books. Dinner was very good with good selection of main and pudding courses as well as cheese/biscuits. I had to leave early in the morning so did not have time to sample the full breakfast menu but it looked very tasty! I met some most interesting people most of whom were at The Woodbrooke for a Quaker run course and all the staff were very good.
Overall my stay was most relaxing and If in the area in the future my first choice would be to stay here. Thank you

Woodbrooke is primarily a college, and the bed and breakfast supports the other work. The advantages are a wonderful library, lots of single rooms, and a very friendly supportive atmosphere with volunteers who are there to help you. The disadvantages, if you are staying more than one night your room will not be serviced unless you ask, if you want lunch or dinner you have to book in advance, also you need to arrive by 10pm to get your key. There are televisions in only a few rooms, so if you want one you have to ask.
There is plenty of parking, free wifi, and a lovely lounge overlooking ten acres of beautiful garden with a lake. Breakfast food is good and provision is made for special diets.
The main part of the house is Victorian and used to belong to George Cadbury. It is very conveniently placed for visiting Bournville, and for hospitals.

Room Tip: Holland House and Bridge end have rooms overlooking the garden but are further from the dining room.

Have wanted to stay here for some time and was delighted to finally have the opportunity. Stayed in a wonderfully comfortable room with views over the very special gardens and the peace and tranquillity restored my balance and calm after a particularly stressful year. All the staff and volunteers were helpful, warm and friendly and, although the main areas could be busy at certain times, there were plenty of quiet spaces to go and unwind (including a well stocked library). Bed and breakfast is tremendous value and lunch and dinner are available if booked ahead before 10am.The food was wholesome and delicious with a choice between a meat or fish dish or vegetarian, thanks to the kitchen staff for all their hard work. Many people staying at the centre are on courses ( made me nostalgic for my conference days) but there is a tremendously relaxed atmosphere. The head gardener and her team keep the surroundings very beautiful and,on colder days and evenings or any day for that matter, the garden room brings gorgeous views along with a constant supply of coffee and often homemade biscuits and fruit. A short bus drive away you can reach the Barber Institute and the Winterbourne House and Gardens on the University campus where a combined visit happily fills a day. Bournville is a pleasant walk away.But if you just want to spend some quiet days reading, writing or just meditating on life you really do not need to leave the centre. I think it is a particularly therapeutic place to be for a quiet recovery from tough times as well as just appreciating the simple joys of life. If you need them, there are Friends in Residence to offer advise and a listening ear, there is no pressure to follow a Quaker way but you can take up the option if you wish. I am unable to praise this place enough. How marvellous to find such an oasis of peace in such a frantically busy city.

Staying for work - really comfy beds, lovely staff (Friends) who were really helpful while checking in and out.

The breakfast is also incredible - a really wide choice of cooked breakfast and continental food, I left very full!

There is also a study centre, bookshop and library, although I didn't use these. It looks like a great place to study.

I was travelling alone and didn't want to feel lonely. Aidan who booked me in was so helpful. I had a single room with shared bathroom and a bathrobe was provided in the room. Lovely food, beautiful house and grounds, plenty of tea and coffee and people on Quaker courses to chat to.
