... on the water sprayed all over the floor and the shower head started to leak. I grabbed the shower head and it came off into my hand. The water sprayed upwards towards the ceiling and I was madly trying to turn the tap off! I finally managed to get the shower head sort of stuck back into the hose and had a mildly irritating shower. I set the alarm for 5:30am as I need to be in the lodge shuttle by 6am to get to the terminal to catch the tube into London...
... at the first junction, and we saw no other boats moving for the rest of our 5 hour cruise. We travelled towards Wolverhampton, and turned right at Horseley Fields Junction onto the Wyrley and Essington, known as the Curly Wurly.
We had several visits to the weedhatch, and we paused for provisions at Sainsbury's, near the old Bentley Canal.
Just after Perry Hall Bridge we noticed some plum trees overhanging the canal. When we put the boat into ...
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 ...
Leaving Michele's place after a yummy breakfast, I headed off toward Warwick. It was supposed to be an hours drive but there were so many 30 and 50 mph spots and fixed speed cameras that it took me and hour and a half! I was glad to get there and go inside the gate. Mark, Levi and Brittany were waiting and had only been there for about 10 minutes. We already had our tickets so we went straight to the ticket booth and picked up ...
... dispersed we saw the owner Randy Lerner come out in his Rolls and some of the players drive off in their sports cars. To find a cab we wandered down the road to a real Aston pub decorated in Aston colours and true to their working class roots. It was amazing to see some people's passion including their AVFC body art. Craziness or dedicated passion. Thank you Andrew and a great way to finish the sporting activities of England and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copthorne Hotel Birmingham
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
