We're getting our application ready for the 2014 Visit England Awards. They are the Oscars of the English tourism industry and we were very proud to win a silver in 2013 for Self Catering Holiday Provider of the Year
We've just launched a brilliant new competition on Facebook. On New Year's Day someone will win two nights in a 5* Clubman apartment at the Rotunda in Birmingham plus two nights at our 39 Steps apartment in Barcelona.
In need of some retail therapy? Check out the Shopping In Birmingham website for excellent info on the city's hottest sales, offers and competitions. And you may spot one of our penthouses starring in their Shopped and Dropped section.
A very Merry Christmas from all of us at Staying Cool! We hope that you have a wonderful day.
The winner of our December competition was Liz Orme. Liz will enjoy a free stay in one of our Mini apartments at the Rotunda in Birmingham during 2014.

We were delighted to see the recent news that Birmingham is the world's fastest growing Christmas and New Year destination. With the Big Wheel, the outdoor ice rink, the Christmas market (closes 22nd) and thousands of festive lights to enjoy - not to mention world-class shopping and cultural delights - we can understand why Birmingham is top of the tree
