Rotunda Minis are the apartment equivalent of an iPod Nano21 November 2009

We absoutely loved this description of our studio apartments at Rotunda by journalist Ruth Ellen-Davies who stayed two weeks ago. Ruth writes for the travel agent's bible, the World Travel Guide.

"Compact, slick and functional, it felt like we were staying in the apartment equivalent of an iPod Nano."

Does that mean the Penthouse is an iTouch?

More Tourism Accolades22 September 2009

Blimey - it is a good news week! Is there something in the air? We've been shortlisted as one of three finalists in the self-catering / serviced apartments category of the Heart of England - the West Midlands region excellence in tourism awards. It's just us flying both the city of Birmingham and the serviced apartment flags as the other two entrants are cottages in Herefordshire. We'll find out the result on the 29th october. The winners go through to the national finals run by Visit Britain. We're delighted - all our hard work at  Rotunda has paid off. Yeah!

Two more Five Stars21 September 2009

Well we weren't expecting this piece of news from our annual quality inspection in Manchester - two apartments were upgraded from four star to five star bringing our total there to five (the rest still being four star). Well done Team Manchester and congratulations to  Fresh and  Woody!

Style in the City launches from Rotunda04 September 2009

MTV presenter Emma Willis launched the Sunday Times Style in the City event for Birmingham from our Rotunda Penthouse this week. It wasn't the best of days weather wise but  Emma braved it to announce highlights from the forthcoming fashion and beauty extravaganza. Style in the City takes place from 24- 26 September when the city will be taken over by models, makeovers and all things a la mode. Check out the full programme here

 

We're Bespoke25 August 2009

Those nice folk at Bespoke Hotels have just added us to their list of recommended places to stay. We're sandwiched between Home House in London, with its fabulous bar by Zaha Hadid, and the Mill House in Ireland, a boutique, Georgian Country House Hotel. Good company indeed.

Congratulations24 August 2009

Congratulations to Stuart Pinfold and his bride-to-be who got engaged chez nous last weekend in Birmingham. Stuart's posted up some good nightime views from Rotunda (and pictures of the rock) on his  Flickr  page. That's our tenth engagement at Rotunda this year...

It's (almost) a blackout zone18 August 2009

Well don't say we don't listen... we always look at our guest feedback and try to improve things whenever we can. Once we had had ten requests for blackout curtains at Rotunda we decided we had to introduce them! The Penthouse, Maxis and Clubmans now have them, as do half of the Minis with the rest being done this week. Sleep tight.

PS Just don't blame us when you oversleep!
