This unassuming Walsall hotel has been named one of the best in Britain

The TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards for Hotels have been announced and the list of finest spots outside of London is shorter than the overly wordy title.

Only six hotels outside the capital were named best in Britain and one of them is in Aldridge. Fairlawns Hotel and Spa comes in at number 25 on the list, bringing up the rear behind impressive establishments including Claridge’s and Shangri-La at the Shard.

Fairlawns is a family-run gem set within almost 12 acres of landscaped grounds, a beautiful hideaway around 13 miles north of Birmingham city center. As well as spa and wellness facilities, it has an award-winning restaurant serving afternoon tea and Sunday roasts as well as lunch and dinner menus.

The hotel has a 4.5 / 5 rating on TripAdvisor with more than 1,600 visitors praising the quality of service and cleanliness of the facilities. Among them is Sean B who wrote: “The place feels homely.

“From the moment we arrived until the moment we left I could not fault anything. We were dining for Sunday lunch to celebrate a family birthday. The staff were amazing and the food superb. You can tell that this is a company that live and breath their vision and values. “

Daryl G wrote: “Had a terrific stay here for my anniversary, the hotel was very clean, the food was very good, the room was lovely especially with the lit up four poster bed.

“The spa treatment, although a bit busy, was very clean and lots to choose from. The staff were incredibly friendly and could not do enough for you, particularly Michelle and Shannon. Would highly recommend this place and would definitely go back.”
