For Families

Self Catering Accommodation In Birmingham

Banish boredom! Taking a family holiday in Birmingham can be great fun - no matter what the British weather is doing. And staying right in the heart of the city means that you have brilliant entertainment right on your doorstep.

Stylish family-friendly serviced apartments, with self catering in the heart of Birmingham 

  • You have a choice of serviced apartments – from ground floor with outdoor terraces (one boasts a full-size cow sculpture!) to staying 20 storeys up with sweeping city views. 

  • No-stress mealtimes. Having a well-equipped kitchen makes self catering and rustling up a bowl of pasta is as easy as it is at home. Want a break from cooking? You'll find oodles of family-friendly restaurants on the doorstep. 

  • You’ll find your serviced apartment to be super practical. From warming bottles in the microwave, making an espresso in your Illy machine, to putting a quick load in the washer/dryer, you have all the comforts of home in a beautifully designed apartment. 

  • There’s plenty of room for everyone to sit comfortably and relax after a fun packed day out in the city. It's so much more relaxing than squashing into a family hotel room.
  • Our ClubmanMaxi and Penthouse serviced apartments have separate bedrooms, which means that when the small people sleep, you can enjoy the rest of your evening with a glass of fizz (or a cup of complimentary hot chocolate!) taking in the rooftop views of the city. 
  • Your Birmingham family short stay will also be great value. Rates are per apartment, not per person, and there are no hidden extras to pay for unlike other Birmingham family hotels.
  • We won’t ask you to pay for travel cots or high chairs or tempt your teens with expensive drinks from mini bars.
  • Our complimentary Cool for Kids package with free gifts and goodies always gets things off to a swinging start.
  • Need to recharge? Pop back any time to your apartment with the kids and grab a bite to eat, play some board games (supplied), watch Sky TV (free) or take a nap – you choose.
  • An optional (free) daily maid service means that you can come back to a spick and span apartment at the end of your fun day out – after all, you are on holiday…
