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!

Lots of space and brilliant gardens

This is an older house, probably listed as historic, which has been adapted for ensuite facilities so there are the obvious downsides such as the tendency for rooms to have different levels eg steps up into bathroom but the positives are much higher - high ceilings and a sense of space, wide staircases, large pubic areas.

There is a superb spacious modern conservatory style lounge area opening on to the garden terrace and free coffee on tap for all guests. The gardens are a real highlight so worth visiting when season allows enjoying it to the full. This is an intentional facility serving the Quaker religious community and is committed to an ethical approach in the way it is run. There is a well-presented information on display in public areas. about the history of the house and about the Quaker faith. However there is no expectation or pressure from the staff that guests will necessarily share that ethos, though we found inevitably as members of the public generally other guests may make assumptions. Overall a very comfortable and refreshing experience.

It was comfortable and felt like a very safe environment for someone travelling alone.
