Commonwealth Games City Break
Commonwealth Games city break
My wife and I enjoyed a Birmingham city break just after the Commonwealth Games. Clover Spa and Hotel is only 20 minutes drive from the city centre or just a short train ride away. We stopped in a ‘Comfy Room’, number 3, overlooking the hotel gardens. The room was clean and nicely set out with a small but perfectly adequate ensuite.
Tim and his team work extremely hard to make everyone feel welcome. The atmosphere is unlike any other hotel and incredibly relaxing. Although we didn’t take advantage of any of the spa treatments on offer, we did use the hot tub, sauna, steam room, plunge pool and heated benches. Luckily we had good weather during our break and were able to sit out in the garden with a drink or just sunbathe. After an excellent freshly cooked full English breakfast, we didn’t feel the need for any lunch although there was a good selection of sandwiches and snacks available. There’s also a good selection of evening meals at very reasonable prices. Thursday night, we took part in the quiz hosted by Emma which was great fun. I think we came second which was a pleasant surprise.
If you are looking for a truly relaxing break, or just need a base to explore Birmingham or the surrounding area, you won’t find anywhere else that comes close to Clover Spa and Hotel. Even the shortest break leaves you feeling like you’ve just had a full holiday. It’s just a shame you have to get dressed again when you leave.
