Excellent accommodation
We stayed in the family room the night before my son\'s graduation. It\'s a fantastic set up with its own lounge,immaculate bathroom and easy access to the communal kitchen. There is a plentiful supply of tea and coffee as well as ingredients for breakfast. Although the owners are not on site they are easily contactable and most helpful.My only criticism is that the comfortable beds are somewhat squeaky, particularly the single one in the family room - I\'m sure a bit of oil on the framework will solve this.I would definitely recommend this excellent accommodation. It makes a wonderful base for exploring the West Midlands or stopping off en route elsewhere. Super value for money. Many thanks indeed.

Super clean, super quiet, easy access to M6
appearances from the outside are deceiving - but once inside it\'s clearly cleaned within an inch of it\'s life - huge tick! It\'s on a quiet road, mini suburbia, but 2 minutes from the M6. Perfect for me as a stop-over. Having a kitchen for a quick snack (tea and toast for me) and full continental breakfast plus bacon and eggs.

Lovely place to stay
Whilst no-one is on site here, all details were sent ahead of my visit so I knew exactly how to get in to the property, and my room. The kitchen area contained more than enough food choices for breakfast and also available to use for the evening meal. The bed was comfortable, the room too. Location was great for Coleshill and the NEC. lovely garden too. I would stay here again

Excellent in every way
What an excellent b&b. Loved being able to cook our own breakfast from the well-stocked fridge and freezer and then eat it in the garden. Beds were comfy, the private lounge was great and being able to walk out into the garden from our lounge was a lovely bonus. Both Janice and Cimi were really helpful and welcoming. We\'re already planning our visit next year and hope we can book this again.

Self Catering!
I was shocked and dissapointe to find that this B and B is self catering. I re read the advert on and see it does say it is, but I must have missed that when I booked. It might be better to advertise that fact more clearly so other people don\'t make the same mistake.if i had known it was self catering i would not have booked and i will not book again.

Not your average Guest House
We stayed at the James Guest House whilst attending an exhibition at the NEC. The house was conveniently located in the lovely area of Coleshill in a quiet residential area. It was immaculately clean and the room was confortable. The owner Janice was very helpful and provided lots of useful information. The twist with this Guest House is that no-one other than the other guests were there and breakfast in the morning was self catering. We enjoy this aspect as it provided us more freedom. There was plenty of choice for breakfasts and teas coffees and juices freely available all day. There is nothing negative to say about the place, the set up was clearly explained prior to booking so you knew what you were getting. We had a very pleasant stay at the James Guest House. It was excellent value and I would definitely use again when visiting the NEC or using the airport.

A real home from home experience
So pleased to have found this fantastic guest house to stay whilst visiting the NEC. Very helpful communication prior to arrival and the top tips for restaurants were spot on. being able to sit and eat a take way dinner in the kitchen after a long day and not wanting to face sitting along was a big bonus and not to mention the self service bacon butty for breakfast was just spot on. I had a really good restful night. Thanks

This is the second time I have stayed here and I will come again when I need to stay overnight. The room was great, had no problem with sharing the bathroom with one other. Cooking breakfast was not a problem and the use of a visitors\' fridge enabled me to prepare my own meals thus saving me money.

A Home from home
James House was exactly what we were looking for. Travelling with 2 children it provided the perfect space to come back to for the night. It meant my son had a room of his own on the divan. The room was clean and very comfortable. I also liked the self-service idea for breakfast, this works great for the kids. We will definitely be back. It was far better value for money than the large chain hotels and so much more relaxed and comfortable. A real find.

James Guest house
This was the first time I had experienced self catering B&B. I have to say the arrangement was terrific as it left the morning very flexible. The accommodation (James Suite) was great and having a separate sitting room opening onto the garden made it feel home from home. I would not hesitate to recommend this for anyone travelling with a small family.

Enjoyed my stay at James House. Clean room, comfortable bed and no restrictions with the serve yourself breakfast kitchen. It almost felt like being at home with the freedom.
The only very small criticism I would have is that the mirror and socket were opposite ends of my room making my hair and make-up tasks for my evening out tricky. I would certainly stay again though.

Weekend stay for Crufts
We stayed for two days (Saturday and Sunday).
The first thing that struck us was how clean and homely the house is. It was warm and relaxed and the bed was comfortable. There was plenty to eat in the kitchen.
The house is situated in a very nice residential area with plenty of parking and it is a lovely walk into Coleshill where there are a good selection of places to eat. There is a well stocked corner store two minutes walk away.
We used the house as a base for visiting the NEC which is very close by car.
Much as I would like to find a negative to balance this review I really can\'t. We will use again and that\'s why I have given it five stars.

Excellent. Clean and easy to access and very reasonable price for single room with en-suite. Clear details to access guest House sent in advance as this guest house has no receptionist. Very clean room and en-suite. Extras included in price like TV radio alarm, WiFi, shower gel and shampoo. Also Included in price was breakfast that you make yourself in an excellently appointed kitchen with a washing machine. Very good range of food in Fridge and Freezer and cupboards to use and a separate fridge for visitors own food. And there was a garden.

First impressions of James house was very impressive, immaculate, homely, well stocked, welcoming, warm and above all safe. We were Mother and Daughter visiting NEC.

We were a little anxious as we werent sure what to expect but I can honestly say it was the best value for money stay I\'ve ever experienced. From the time we rang \'Janice\' to get the entry code, to all the instructions and lovely groceries left at our disposal. Didn\'t expect to find our beds made and towels changed on our return either. A novel idea that worked brilliantly. The only thing I would say is I may have found it nerve wracking to be a female on my own with no proprietor in the house but as a couple or group was brilliant. Thankyou

Cannot praise James House highly enough
Cannot praise James House highly enough - loads of space in the James Suite - fully stocked self-serve kitchen, and the Lady of the house was most understanding and helpful when we phoned to say we would be arriving very late in the evening.

Felt like Goldilocks in the bears house
First impressions the guest house is clean and presentable and has everything you need for a quick over night stop. I have to say though it my first experience staying somewhere with no staff. I felt a bit like i was sleeping in baby bears bed and eating his porridge in the morning but i would definitely stop here again as it had everything i needed was clean and comfy.

Excellent place to stay for NEC - short distance away but in a quiet residential setting. Room was small but clean and comfy - very comfy bed. I liked the self serve option for breakfast with everything there if you wanted it. Excellent price too. I would definitely stay there again.(My only problem had nothing to do with James House - went to eat at the Harvester and they had no gas so couldn't do any food!)

A very comfortable and well equipped place, with little thoughtful toiletries included. Very clean and kitchen well equipped too with good range of cooking condiments, down to a jar of marmite! Only fault was other inconsiderate guests who don't wash up after themselves and help themselves to breakfast ordered by others. Location is easy to get to from major roads but in quiet residential area. A nice private garden too.

A home away from home!
Really enjoyed staying at James Guest house - a real home away from home! My 12 year old son and I stayed here when we went to see the Gadget Show Live event at Birmingham NEC. Great access to the venue - we went on the bus, bus stop nearby and a very helpful info sheet available at James House so we knew where to go and what bus to catch. Catching the bus was the right decision due to the traffic jams at the end. Very clean, very comfortable stay. My son even commented on how lovely the guest house was - he doesn't say a lot these days unless it's to do with computer games so consider that a recommendation! Thank you Janice - we will definitely book again if we are in the area. Kind regards . . . .

Three of us stayed in the downstairs family suite. From the moment we arrived it was home from home. It is so nice to have access to a proper kitchen with fresh milk and a private garden to step outside for the smokers. Whoever runs this guest house has clearly put in a lot of effort to offer a thoughtful service to its clients based on mutual trust and respect. Thank you, I look forward to staying there again.

From the initial booking to the end of our stay we had a really good experience. James guest house is a clean efficient way to visit the Nec and surrounding area. The self serve breakfast is a really good idea meaning your stay is totally flexible. Off street parking is a bonus and the location is easy to find. Many thanks to James House, and keep up the good work, will certainly stay here again. :-)
