Steve McKenna of the Brisbane Times in Australia visited Birmingham recently and his review is now online.
It's clear that Steve McKenna was very pleasantly surprised by the city - "Truth be told, Brum's a bit of a gem" . He recommends our "swanky" serviced apartments in Birmingham as a place to stay.
The Voyage is taking place in Bimingham in late June just 500m away from our Rotunda apartments.
It will be a spectacular evening. An enormous ship will 'sail' into Victoria Square docking itself beside the Town Hall. High above, dancers and aerialists will appear in the ship's rigging. On the ground seagulls will swoop and travellers will prepare to embark on their journey. When the ship sets sail, the Town Hall will be transformed by projected images.
The event is part of the London 2012 Festival and to show our support we're offering the chance to win a night at Rotunda in a Mini apartment.
You can enter via Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Voyage competition' as the subject header. Entries close on Wedensday, May 30th at 8pm.
