As of today, not much much other than the usual. I have a new client, Halfords, so that's why I'm in Birmingham travelling home each weekend. However, the plan is that from around May next year, we go off driving around the European land mass visiting hot countries when it's cooler there and colder countries when it's hotter. We are spending the next few months planning so there's not much detail to be seen here yet. Watch this ...

... having taken so many photos. Having checked with the photo taker the classic and insightful comment came back that "he was taking a lot of photos in the hope of taking one with the hope that Charles would not be talking". Collapsed cyclists followed in roars of laughter, end of photo session.... Vince: Today we were not in a rush to get out. We had to avoid commuting traffic, after leaving Graham led us out of the ...

... some people will have come especially to see one or two acts but most people will have come for the whole thing and they will want to hear the famous stuff. We were delighted to discover that Neville was in touch with the mood of the day and reeled out a succession of Specials and Fun Boy Three hits to the delight of the capacity crowd. We see quite a lot of live performances over the course of the year but for me this was the best of 2013, at least as far as a pure ...

... 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 ...

The week of the number 13.

... Today was a prefect day in my eyes. It was cold as it was gently raining outside which gave me the perfect excuse to wear thick wooly socks and a over sized jumper. Something that's generally prohibited in the world of fashion, but no one can argue with a rainy Sunday and it's devious power to make people, cloth themselves like an 80 year old grandmother or person born without the basic fashion sense file properly downloaded. That and the desire to make a cup of tea, find ...

    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.
