About the hotel

Are you looking for a different, more ethical and inspiring bed and breakfast experience? Woodbrooke aims to provide refreshment and renewal to all who come here. It could be the place for you if you are seeking a place of inspiration, peace and quiet, whether you are visiting someone locally; in the middle of a long journey; have a business meeting nearby; or are looking to explore Birmingham over a weekend. We like to think that we offer ‘bed and breakfast with a soul’.

Woodbrooke isn’t a hotel; there isn’t room service; there’s no bar; and TVs are only available in a small selection of rooms. Our public spaces are alcohol-free. Take a look at more good reasons to visit us for B&B: • Many guests remark on benefiting from the profound sense of peace that they feel when they stay here, and on the warm welcome and friendliness of staff and volunteers • The centre offers a modern, bright and airy garden lounge which allows visitors to warm themselves around its wood-burning stove, while sipping on cappuccinos, lattes or one of a range of Fairtrade teas • Take in the views or take a walk in the ten acres of Birmingham’s largest organically-managed garden and its small lake, The centre offers free Wi-Fi throughout; substantial free on-site parking; a silent worship space; laundry facilities; a well-stocked library; a games and tv room in the cellar; delicious cooked and continental breakfasts; the option of meals at lunch and in the evening (with 24 hours’ notice); and a Victorian walled garden to explore. • We have a strong record of environmental initiatives that is informed by the Quaker faith, including eco-friendly liquid soap and shampoo in each room • Woodbrooke is steeped in ethics and social responsibility, being the Grade II listed former home of Quaker and chocolate-maker George Cadbury, and having been a study centre for Quakers and others focusing on peace-making, equality and building a better world since 1903. We look forward to welcoming you here soon!

Quirky and welcoming B&B but not without occasional difficulties

This was my second stay at Woodbrooke and I cannot fault the service, the quality of the breakfast, the fast and free WiFi or the quirky nature of the B&B operation - and no doubt I will return here again soon - every stay feels more like a spiritual retreat rather than a hotel.

Unfortunately however, this time I had a room in the New Wing - where the walls are paper thin and I could hear every word the occupants of the next room were saying - and they stayed up late and got up early, so my sleep was disturbed. And I know all their secrets. Also, despite snow laying outside, the heating went off at about 9pm and didn't come back on till 6am which made for chilly nights. It is a shame that breakfast starts at 7:45 when the first 98 bus to Birmingham is at 8:02 - it's such a rush. I, and I am sure others, would appreciate breakfast starting at 7:30am - especially given how much food there is and how well it is prepared.

What a gem

If you like a great night out with a bar and noisey atmosphere then stay away.

If you love peace and quiet and very feindly polite and welcoming people in a amazing historic building then this is the place for you. As a business traveller I avoid hotels because they seem to be full of drunk, noisy customers who have no respect for anybody else especially at night. The study centre is non of the above.I was welcomed by a pleasant man who showed me to my room in one of the annex buildings. It was a quiet room with no tv but it had a great wifi so I could watch tv on my laptop. The Quakers are renowned for quiet study and worship so you don't hear any noise which is great.You have to wear a name badge which is fine and helps you feel safe and meals are very cheap. You dont get a men as they only cook enough food for who asks for it but its plentyful and you certainly don't go hungry. The house itself has teastops all over the place where you can sit and quietly read and it even has a games room and tv room.The breakfast is again very good and the whole experience left me refreshed and ready for work the next day. Perfect!
