What are we doing?

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 ...

Flattest but longest day!

Charles: Well the big hills day is now behind us, thank goodness for that, as my legs are absolutely shattered. Nice rolling hills today with lots of flat smooth roads, although Graham does insist on taking us up some real rough old roads if we're having it too easy. No punctures or breakdowns today so our average speed increased to 15 mph. My tip from Graham today is "don't just eat one snack bar when you can have two" ...

... goes. Only Nick Helm at Machynlleth was better but that was comedy as well as music. A Helm/Staple double-bill – now that would be worth seeing.

I felt that Neville had earned the right to do some of his new music at Godiva 2014 after last year’s success but of course I was hoping for “A Message to You, Rudy” and “Ghost Town” as well. He is not in the best of health, sadly, but I suspect that he could get away with almost anything in ...

It was good but I enjoyed hearing “Promises”, “Autonomy”, “What do I get” and especially “Boredom” more. I barely noticed the bit of rain that came down in the middle of the set.

After that there wasn’t much to do other than join the hordes heading back into Coventry and go for a ...

... whose knee jerk reaction to the latest OECD league tables was to change the gsc system so it is all exam based- that introduces rigour according to Michael Gove, secretary, despite the wealth of evidence to the contrary. It is quite sad though to hear heads start with their ranking by OFSTED ( UK version of ERO ) as part of their introduction- like it is a badge of honour to each other and when they are ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Jurys Inn Birmingham

    What a view!

    from

    This hotel is basic yet clean with everything you need. The room was neat and the bathroom fully equipt, even for people with disabilities. The staff were polite however the door man had no idea where we should go for a dinner meal when we asked him. The location is good if you are going to party on the 'Birmingham strip'. There was a little bit of noise from the people on the street that we could hear from our room but it was not loud enough to disturb our sleep. We had a good view of the clubbing strip below which was fun for people watching. We did not eat at the hotel because we mainly used the Sainsbury's across the road however note that the room does not have a fridge. All in all, a fine no frills experience.

    Not That Good !!!

    from

    I stayed at this Hotel for 5 nights and this is my report:

    Positives - Location due to the fact it is near plenty of good pubs, restaraunts and shops. The staff were friendly although not all understood english well !!! Rooms were a good size and clean.

    Negatives - Rooms had many things falling apart in them, they were seviced poorly (I had toilet rolls not replaced properly for 3 days). Carvery and breakfast were very average, showers in room were very hard to work and tempertures changed without touching anything.

    I wont be back, simple as that.

    Depends what you are there for

    from

    Stayed here on a week long UK tour.

    It was functional and staff helpful. The room was fine, if a bit faded (holes in the towel! )

    So why stay here? Well for night life or the Convention centre it's an ideal location and worth putting up with the faded bits. It's a very busy hotel, so if you are looking for a quiet weekend, avoid it. If you are a party animal you coudld'nt find a better place.

    Public areas a bit grim, but hey if you are a party animal you won't be there much anyway. Lots of bars, nightlife etc seconds away!

    Think twice before booking here!

    from

    Jury's in Birmingham - well, I'm glad to get home!

    Basic hotel, good location

    from

    I stayed at this hotel last week on business, the rooms are basic but clean, the location is excellent for the shops and bars-5 minute walk max. the evening food in the restaurant is average, but as it is an all you can eat buffet you can certainly get value for money if you try. the buffet breakfast is excellent, far better than the evening food. I stayed here mid week so noise from the bars ect. was not a problem, however I would imagine this may be a problem at weekends as I was on the 6th floor and could hear people outside. As the windows do not open the room can be stuffy at times- especially if you are a smoker like myself.

    Get a corner room!

    from

    A hotel that deserves the name, unlike many others in this city. Perfectly adequate for 4 star, though you do pay for it.

    Tiny TV, nice bathroom, check in/out efficient without being over polite, room service extortionate, but what's new?

    Make sure you get a corner room, plenty of space and panoramic windows of Broad Street, otherwise rooms tend to be on the small side.

    Very nice hotel!

    from

    Me and my partner planned to visit Birmingham for a Sunday/Monday night Valentine 'get away'! After reading the reviews for the Jury's Inn, Birmingham we were convinced we may have made the wrong choice with our hotel selection...How wrong could we be! Bearing in mind we are in our Mid-20's, we couldn't have asked for anything better for the price! When we arrived at the hotel the staff we very professional and polite, upon entering our room we found it to be spacious and comfortable with an ensuite to meet our needs. The room was extremely clean and had sufficient coffee and tea condements! The hotel was ideally situated, close to Brindley Place which is a very nice and stylish part of town offering many restaurants to chose from. The Mailbox which is also a contemporary and chic building with designer shops was also within a 5 minute stroll by the canal which was very refreshing! We found all local amenities within a reasonable distance and walked almost everywhere, except on a night out to a club - There tends to be a lot of beggars in Birmingham so for safety we opted for a cab at 12.00am! On our frst night we stayed in the hotel to eat, but instead of choosing the restaurant we ate from the Jury's Inn Pub Menu - Wow...The portions were amazing...What we ordered for the two of us was clearly wasted and could have realistically have fed 4-5 people! It was well presented and very nice, a shock to us really! We did however go the pub just a few doors down the road for breakfast which was great value. Overall, we had a great time, the hotel was FAB and we will definitely go back...We now have a place to stay for our nights out in Birmingham!

    Good Location

    from

    Just stayed for 1 night at The Jury on Birmingham's Broad St for 55 per room. The room, No 1006, was large with two double beds and a clean bathroom. The decor was of the usual modern hotel standard,clean,bland but OK. The windows don't open so it would be warm in summer and it's impossible to take a shower, which is over the bath without soaking the bathroom floor!

    The hotel is well placed for visiting the newly developed Mailbox and canal areas.

    Breakfast is expensive at 9 pp, so stay bed only as there are lots of places to buy breakfast close by.

    Although it's in a busy nightlife area our room was very quiet.

    We would stay there again if visiting Birmingham.

    So-So

    from

    If you don't mind a hotel on Birmingham's "pub row," and being awakened at all hours by shouts of revellers, even from a room on the 12th floor, the Jurys Inn is adequate.

    A big disappointment.

    from

    For those people with a passion motorway services/supermarket wash room facilities and university accommodation I'm sure you'll find the Jury's Inn Birmingham a delight. For the rest of us who expect something better for £110 per night room only it's a big disappointment. It is, however, well placed. The rooms are large but have all the charm of a room in a university hall of residence - 20 ft of magnolia wall, decorated only by a fire regulation notice and a mirror. The bathroom was equally large but for a moment I felt as though I had walked into the washrooms at a motorway service station fully expecting to see a row a cubicles on one side of the room. Eastern Block chic perhaps? A single hanging rail was the only concession to a wardrobe - clearly designed at a height to take shirts only (skirts and trousers do not fit). Being tucked around a large corner, the TV can only be viewed from the bed, not from the desk area. Don't expect anything other than 3 tea-bags and similar supplies of coffee on the hospitality tray (£110 and no biscuits!). On checking in we were told that "Breakfast is an additional £8 per person - but you'd probably be better off at McDonald's up the road"...and the final sting in the tail is that the hotel car park is 60p per hour!! Ouch!
