The Great Barr hotel is undoubtedly one of the best 3-star hotels in Birmingham, set in beautiful grounds and just 20 minutes from the city centre. The hotel is housed in a contemporary building with 105 tastefully furnished rooms and suites offering all the facilities expected of a 3 star hotel including satellite TV, Internet, playstation and computer rental. Many of the rooms have a wonderful view of the gardens. This is the perfect base for the business or leisure traveller, being within easy access of the NEC, the business district, the city centre with its myriad of bars, restaurants, galleries, music venues, jewellery quarter and shopping centres as well as access to major roads winding their way to towns like Stratford-Upon-Avon. The Palm Restaurant offers excellent British and International cuisine and is very popular with locals and guests alike.
