Anne: The lines of the song by Peter, Paul and Mary have been running through my head of late- (wonder why!). We've been planning and looking forward to this mega adventure for so long.... You must understand that it all began when we booked a cruise back in October 2012!! We've been asked, "Which bit are you looking forward to the most?" And my reply has always been, " The car coming to take us to the airport". ...

A trip to the castle

... with plenty of people playing golf. It was even warm enough for my to not wear my coat. But it wasn't so warm that the mud had dried up, which meant we both left the journey with a good layer on our shoes.
We finally got to the castle and as we got closer, we saw, and heard, a group of children which must have been at a birthday party charging the castle with their swords. We got to the castle which was probably the highest point in ...

... t nearly as many pecans and the gooey part wasn't nearly as gooey. The cream tea was to be expected, delicious, and it has become my fall back at all of our afternoon teas.
After a couple of hours in town, we headed back home for the night. Stratford on Avon was a nice English town and would be a great place to stay if you wanted the English town feel that was still close enough to London to see the big city as well. Overall, not bad but not too terribly exciting.

11.34 from York, coppers everywhere, weather getting better by the hour. Train to brum delayed and onward train cancelled, turning into a long trip but weather now glorious. Brums rough as ever, Moor street very old worldly. Got on train eventually an hour late. B&B nice, excited to get started. Missing my superbly fit and awesome ...

It's the night before we leave, both of us nervously excited as we try to get some sleep. We go over again all of the fine detail to make sure we are totally ready. Alarm is set for 7am. Miss the alarm and wake up at 845am giving is 15 minutes to get ready, typical! After frantically running around and doing the final bits of packing, Adams mom and dad kindly drive us to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Copthorne Hotel Birmingham

    Doesn't justify its 4 stars

    from

    I had two nights in here on business when my usual Birmingham city centre hotel was full and I needed an alternative near New Street station. The hotel is in the middle of a very large roundabout and I found it difficult to get in and out of it by foot (it suits arrivals by car or taxi better). Walking in and out of the hotel in the evening when it was dark I didn't feel particularly safe walking past the down and outs and beggars.

    Good value hotel

    from

    This hotel is very central - easy to get there from the train station, close to shopping and the canelside areas of Birmingham. Paid 50 for a double room as an internet rate - this place is definately a real step above what you usually get for this price in England. Nice rooms, swimming pool etc.

    Depends on the price!

    from

    I had to book last minute and there were other events on in the city so I paid top price of 155.

    The hotel was impersonal and about as standard as it is possible to acheive. So absolutely nothing wrong but just not special.

    They did try to charge me for breakfast (which was excellent) in the morning but relented without too much pressure

    No heating and a mouse!

    from

    Late October and my room had no heating at all. At 12.30 am a sweet young man from reception set to work with a monkey wrench (really!) and by 1 he had admitted defeat and brought a heater...this didn't prevent the pipes of the redundant radiator from rattling and clanking in the early hours... what could be more refreshing than a trip to the sauna to drip one's way through a gym of people exercising, having sweated it out in an airing cupboard...bring on the mouse in the bar...not as upmarket as I'd expected.

    Pool and gym..

    from

    I stayed here at the beginning of September 2004.

    Extremely Smoky

    from

    Stayed there and had an upgraded "non" smoking room but it reeked of cigarettes as did the whole hotel from lobby onwards.

    Not one for kids as the whole hotel felt smoky. Really got into the throat and clothes etc. For adults or smokers very centrally located and fab breakfast.

    Fab getaway

    from

    Stayed here for a girlie pampering weekend and shopping extravaganza and was not disappointed. Rooms were light airy and spacious overlooking the canal....... great shops in the merryhill shopping centre and great bars across from the hotel all within staggering distance..... Hotel staff were friendly and hotel provided excellent pampering facilities with gym, sauna, treatments etc Had a great time!!!!

    Copthorne - excellent value!

    from

    We stayed in the Copthorne Birmingham in July 2003 and liked it very much. Over the internet we'd booked accommodation with a three-course-dinner, which was absolutely fabulous! The waiter pampered us with three courses and additional little delicacies in between - dining in true style! A slight drawback was the fact that the room didn't have air conditioning and that it was a hot night. A fan (if not air conditioning) would have been helpful. The leisure facilities were great - very well-maintained and a pleasure to use. The hotel bar is stylish and open until 1.00. Pint of lager/bitter about 2.75 - not too much for such I nice place, I believe.

    Absolutely fabuloshious!!!

    from

    Spent my wedding anniversary here and it's now ear-marked for an annual tradition. Excellent service and GREAT for exploring the city.

    Copthorne - ideal hotel for short break

    from

    Couldn't fault the Copthorne - stayed for a long weekend, excellent, attentive and friendly service, good 'roomy' rooms, thoughtfully adapted room for wheelchair users, huge breakfasts, less than 5 minutes from the the shoppping district of New Street to the east and the bars / restaurants of Brindleyplace to ther west.
