For Families

Banish boredom! Taking a family holiday in Birmingham is fun (no matter what the British weather is doing). Staying right at the heart of the city puts brilliant entertainment on your doorstep. Need to recharge? Pop back to your apartments with the kids and grab a bit to eat, play board games (provided), watch TV or take a nap. 

  • Eat in if you don't want to go out – every apartment has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area
  • Super practical. Warm bottles in the microwave, make an espresso in your Gaggia, put a load in the washer/dryer - all while enjoying the views

  • Our apartments are seriously stylish. Staying in while your small people sleep is a pleasure not a chore 

  • We’re right at the heart of town and that makes Birmingham family heaven. You’ll have museums, cinemas, art galleries and shops right on your doorstep. And, if you do want to eat out there are plenty of child friendly restaurants on your doorstep

  • The optional daily maid service means you don't have to clean up before you go out for the day

  • The apartments are designed not just for sleeping but for living in. Everyone can sit comfortably and spread out

  • Our complimentary Cool for Kids package makes a great start to your trip 

  • Rates are per apartment not per person and there are no hidden extras to pay for. We won’t ask you to pay for travel cots or high chairs or tempt your teens with expensive sodas from mini bars

"Families with a taste for design can upgrade to Staying Cool at the Rotunda. Upscale amenities include organic breakfasts, an espresso machine and orange juicer." Frommer's

 "As the kids did their thing...and then fell exhaustedly into their beds, we were able to sit and relax over a bottle of wine as the sun set and then the lights of the metropolis winked into life all around us."

 "Someone has put a lot of thought into making the stay a wonderful experience for guests, and it shows."  Made for Mums
