Complimentary in-apartment supplies

Coffee, tea and hot chocolate

You will find English breakfast tea, green and peppermint teas in the kitchen.

There’s also fresh milk in your fridge. If you run out of anything, just ask at reception and we’ll re-stock your fridge. We also stock a small supply of non-dairy milks (normally oat, soya and almond) – just let us know when you book, or ask at reception, and we’ll pop one in your apartment (no charge).

Melitta espresso machine

Good coffee makes a great start to the day. That’s why every apartment has a Melitta Espresso Maker with fresh coffee beans from our local independent roasters Quarter Horse.

Don’t forget to switch it on at the wall and follow the operating instructions on the coffee label.

If you prefer a long black you can adjust the size of your coffee using the dial on the machine.

If you run out of beans, just ask at reception and we’ll provide some more.

Juicer

You’ll find oranges and grapefruit for the juicer in the sealed bag in the fridge, the perfect combo for a great glass of chilled juice.

  1. Plug in the electric juicer
  2. Halve your oranges and grapefruit
  3. Gently press the halves down on the juicer and voila.

Just a word about the oranges and grapefruit. We select them especially for juicing so while they may not look the prettiest or feel the firmest they do make good juice. 

We try to avoid waste so we choose regular deliveries and don’t put too many in your fridge at once. If you would like more during your stay (they’re free!) just let us know. And if you know you aren’t going to use them, please do let us know that too.

Cereals

We’re in the process of changing (improving!) our breakfast offering. But you’ll currently find both porridge oats and granola on your counter top.

Kitchen essentials

You will find cold-pressed rapeseed oil (suitable for both salads and high-temperature frying) plus balsamic vinegar next to the hob along with sea salt and black pepper grinders for seasoning. Just a few kitchen essentials in case you fancy cooking up a storm during your stay.

We’ve also pulled together some recipes created especially for us by local chef Alex Claridge of The Wilderness fame if you’re looking for some simple and tasty dinner inspiration. They are all easy but delicious.

Made in the Midlands Tuck Shop

Feeling peckish but too comfy to move? Fear not, the Staying Cool Tuck Shop is here to save the day!

We’ve bundled together a few of our favourite snack from some local small, independent suppliers (nearly all from Birmingham), so you don’t have to move far to satisfy that sweet or savoury craving. Peruse the in-apartment menu (also below) and help yourself. We’ll add the cost to your booking total after check-out, charge your card and email you the receipt.

As always, if there’s something from the tuck shop you really like and happen to run out of, contact us on reception and we’ll get you topped up.

Booking extra treats

Add food and drink for your apartment when booking or email our Guest Relations team and avoid dashing to the shops as soon as you arrive! We’ve pulled together some of our favourite food combos below that we think you might like, but if there’s something specific you’re after, all you have to do is ask.

So we can source the very best ingredients, please book at least 24 hours before arrival and make us aware of any allergies that should be considered as part of your order.
