Prompted by the increasing number of families who have been visiting us in Birmingham over the school holidays, we've just launched a whole range of new services for mums, dads and kids staying at Rotunda in Birmingham. From dressing up boxes to sweetie treaties check out thenew page.
Kim, our Rotunda manager, visited Birmingham & Black Country Community Foundation to check out some projects last week. She made a gorgeous 'carnival queen'.
We've just signed up to support the Foundation's 100 Club and and their local community projects. Check out their website for more info.
We have an all singing all dancing new Wi-Fi system at Rotunda. It's been in place for three weeks now and it's all working very smoothly. It's super fast and best of all, it's free to all our guests. Hurrah!
Read Twinkle Magazine's review of Birmingham and their stay at the Rotunda. Our only little gripe is that the article says don't bring your kids. Children absolutely love Rotunda - so much so that we're putting together a little welcome pack for them. :-) Cool for Kids?
We're just picking up on an idea that a few guests have had for Rotunda.
Visitors want to know what all the landmarks they can see from their floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows are.
We've taken pictures of all the views and plan to label them and leave in each apartment for the enjoyment of future guests but we need your help.
So, if you think you know your Brum as well as the next Brummie, then email email@example.com with the identity of the five buildings on our Facebook page.
All correct entries go into a draw and the first 14 pulled out of the hat on 22nd March get to stay the night on Sun 27 March and help in the Big Building Naming event. Should be fun.
Quick favour anyone? We're up for 'Hotel Of The Year' in the Style Birmingham awards. It's purely a numbers game ie the hotel with the most votes wins... As we're up against three chains, we need some (LOTS!) of help in getting as many votes as possible. Would you mind? Voting closes on Thursday 17th February.
Detox January is over and romantic February is upon us. Halleluiah! Our offer this month is therefore a bottle of fizz for a bargain £10 for all February arrivals. One bottle of champagne per guest. Bottoms up!
