There is a lovely pace of life in the Cotswolds and the lanes and roads are quintessential England: trees that meet over the road and feels like you are driving inside a green tunnel. The honey coloured stone lets you know exactly where in England you are even if you don't have a map or a GPS. After having a lovely meander through the stone-walled lanes and wandering though an open garden, I set off for a short drive to the Cotswold Wildlife Park. ...
... where the Common Folk Club takes place every Thursday. We had a warm welcome, and we sang Watercress and Well, Well, Well. There were lots of performers, with several singer / songwriters. Quite a few folksy pop songs, and not much traditional folk. It didn’t finish until 1115pm. We got a lift back to the boat.
No locks, 6 miles.

Thankfully Hugo was around in the morning as usual, so we guess he had plenty ...
Today was quite warm by UK standards and Derek and I had a pleasant walk along the canal in the morning before joining the Grimer family for a very tasty Sunday roast lunch. Rob and Fi then took us to Croome Park, an 18th century country house and estate where we enjoyed a walk through the house and grounds. Rob then dragged me out into the fields to go blackberry picking and Derek and I dropped in for a chat with Lesley's parents, Ray and Doreen, before supper and a chat with Rob and ...
... for the Merlin tour and the dungeon tour. We had some time so we wandered down to the mill and down to the trebuchet that was waiting to b e shot during the day. A wander through the castle (photography IS allowed) for about a half an hour found us ready to join the group at the Merlin Tour. It was OK, only going for about 15 minutes but had a dragon that spoke to people from behind a mirror.
Our next trek was to ...
... as lovely and friendly as Fiona. It was fairly chaotic in the house with all the family plus two dogs and two very large rabbits. After lunch Malcolm took Linda, Derek and I into Hereford and we toured the cathedral which is similar in style to Worcester although there seem to be a lot more older parts with tombs dating back to the 12th century. The highlight was seeing the Mappa Mundi, a map of the world as it was the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Birmingham Marriott Hotel
We were in Birmingham last Saturday night during the evacuation of the city. Our own hotel was evacuated and the Marriott was fully booked but, nevertheless, the staff opened up the conference room to those of us who were stranded and did not know the city. They provided us with tea, coffee, water etc and, as the night wore on, with blankets so that we could try to get some sleep. In what was a horrible situation, the wonderful staff at this hotel made us as comfortable as possible and really went above and beyond the call of duty - especially considering the fact that we were not guests at the hotel. Cannot praise them enough.
Bit of a dump
Used to be great when it was Swallow but Marriott have added their touches & destroyed the upmarket hotel that it was in its early days.
Restaurants have changed, the old bar & lounge have gone to make way for 'corporate' and you could be in any Marriott in the world (and thats not good news!!)
If you need to be in the centre of Birmingham stay at the Malmaison or the Hotel du Vin - much much better options
Solid buusiness hotel in central location
I stayed her in April while on a business trip. Had an excellent large room, well appointed bathroom, comfortable bed. Everything worked as you would expect at a hotel of this class. Good buffet breakfast available as well as 'cooked to order' items. Not a large car park which might be an issue if there is an event at the hotel while you are there. Other than that the location is great. The (in my opinion!) best restaurant in Birmingham, Simpsons, is within easy walking distance.
Stayed for one night in May. The hotel is about 10 - 15mins walk from the centre of birmingham (shops). The hotel is clean and well presented and staff are quite helpful.
The rooms are clean and have the finishing touches you would expect from a hotel of this price.
the only downful in my opinion was the service at the hotel restaurant and bar.
Service was slow and the food sounded better on the menu than in the actual eating.
car parking is limited and is provided at a cost.
A wonderful hotel
Our room was very large and of the standard you would expect from this type of hotel. The restaurant serves excellent food. The bar area was modern and the staff were attentive. It's a good location as it is away from all the noise of the bars along Broad Street, but still within easy walking distance.
We booked a suite at the Marriott for our anniversary and we were extremely dissapointed with what we found.
Good smart hotel
Top class , comfortable rooms , nice bar area , would stay again , situated at the roundabout at the head of the main road into the town centre ,
Stayed at the Marriot over the weekend with work colleagues as we had a deadline to meet and therefore needed somewhere central with meeting facilities available. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left all the staff were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us. They recommended restaurants, booked the tables and taxis and generally looked after us very well. Yes, i suppose it is what you should expect, but don't always get. I would definately stay at the Marriot if i was to visit Birmingham again.
Over-priced, but good staff
Nice enough room, but a bit small. NOT impressed that there is a £2.50 charge added to room service orders, and you pay to park (even on a Saturday) Nonetheless, the staff are friendly & helpful. In future, I will definitely stay at the Hyatt.
Comfortable, stylish, perfect
I have stayed here, even though i live in Birmingham, it was a present from a friend. A wonderful, warm, comfortable stay. The staff were friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable and i loved it. I would recommend The Birmingham Marriott to anyone.
