We recently stayed at Gilly & Grants B&B to attend a craft event at the NEC. Such a welcoming couple, the location was great, easy to get to the nec. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, breakfast fabulous. All in all we had a great stay and will stay there again.

I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your kind words on TripAdvisor. You're absolutely right, it's certainly a very easy run straight to the NEC and so useful to have all the Balsall Common village amenities just a short stroll away as well. Hope to see you again.

VERY VERY GOOD! We arrived from a 5 hour journey to a very warm welcome with cake and tea. Rooms were spotless and I couldnt fault anything about this place. Breakfast was brilliant every morning. Both Gilly & Grant are so lovely and make you feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this place.

Gilly and grant are perfect hosts. They are very welcoming and friendly and they make you feel at home from the moment you meet them, with tea and cake on arrival. Breakfast is delicious.
