... To do this we need many things, not least of which is a strong dependable workhorse to get us around and arguably no better vehicle exists for this than a Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series. So, here's a picture of our latest acquisition. It's nearly 20 years old and has done nearly 167,000 miles and still going strong. It's in standard shape right now and will be base lined for a long trip and have few modifications to ...
... travelled through almost 700 miles of the UK's most spectacular countryside today we reached the pinnacle of picnic spots and had lunch on a grass verge in the middle of a housing estate. As we parked the 4X4 and laid down our tarpaulin, many net curtains started to twitch. They must have thought many caravans and horses would follow. Ironically around the corner from our chosen comfort spot there was a huge ...
... ve never listened to much by The Happy Mondays. I’ve been aware of their well-known songs and even owned a few on compilation albums and quite liked them but not enough to discover more of their oeuvre so didn’t have any strong expectations. Last year, for me, Maximo Park were a bit disappointing as the main headliner and we didn’t stay to the end. I rather thought we would this time though and I wasn’t wrong. Even though they only played about 4 tunes ...
... and early 1980s. We’d seen them at Godiva a few years previously and they’d been good but they were without singer Pauline Black at that time and now Pauline was back with them. By the time they came on stage the rain had finished, the ground underfoot seemed to have survived (we’ve had several mainly rain-free weeks) and the crowd had grown considerably, with people who no doubt remembered The Selecter from the first time round down to ...
... time to see what Birmingham had to offer (besides shopping and food!). The only thing that seemed interesting enough to visit was the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I really like botanical gardens (amongst other things). I've visited the one in Cambridge obviously, which is free for students. I've also been to the ones in London, Singapore, Geneva, Dunedin (NZ). Hmmm... I guess that's it for now but I can add ...

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.
