Neat little review of Rotunda on London based Where and Now's website. Reviewer Laura stayed with us for two nights last month in a Mini.
Blimey, doesn't time fly? We're celebrating five years in business next month and to celebrate we're offering a 50% discount on all Rotunda bookings for a one week period (11-17 August) which means you can stay for as little as £50 per night. That's only £25 each if there are two of you. Don't delay - book today. Once it's gone, it's gone! Click here for more details.
We're delighted to have a new booking engine - it's still a bit of a work in progress (we're busy adding pictures and other useful bits and bats) but it means you can create an on-line account and only enter all your contact information once. You can print off receipts and see how much you've spent (and see if you've qualified for your free weekend in Barcelona with us...). We would love to hear your thoughts - email us at email@example.com. Thanks.
Hello all you foodies out there... we've just signed up to the Gastro Card which gives you a discount, or a freebie bottle of wine, or two for the price of one at some of Birmingham's best restaurants, including the Michelin-starred ones. The card comes with your apartment when you check in. From 5 June.
We've been cited as The Times' Best City Pads in a review of the best in the UK. Nice pic too (in the printed if not the on-line version). The Martello Tower in Suffolk is also included - a Staying Cool favourite.
Check out our Facebook page for a quick and fun competition. If you know the Birmingham landscape you'll be at a slight advantage but if not, you've probably got just as much of a chance. Think guess the number of smarties in a jar at the school fete! Click here to go our Facebook page to enter.
Where better to say 'I love you' than the top of the Rotunda? Last year we had two proposals on Valentine's and we would love to top that this year. The views, the mood lighting, the beds... all add up to one lovely Valentine's night in. Book on either Friday 12th, Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th for any Birmingham apartment and we'll make sure there's a complimentary bottle of fizz waiting in the apartment for you. Book via the website and we'll do the rest. Rates from £199 all in.
Or should that be frreeeezing new year? Brrrrh! Anyway... we've had more than a few calls asking whether or not we're still open for business in this weather. Of course we are! Aside from one late start last week it's very much business as usual in all destinations. And in Barcleona, it's going to be 11 degrees next week... maybe best to head off there instead... factor in the fact that you're paying in pounds not euros and BA have a sale on, what are you waiting for..?
Yes us! We're listed as the Staying Cool 'design' apartments in Birmingham and Manchester and we've been given a place in the guide on account of our sustainability policies, use of local or fairtrade produce, our wonderful eco-friendly bathroom products and our energy and waste minimisation plans. Hurrah!
