Situated in Edgbaston, the property is 10 minutes from Birmingham New Street and a five-minute drive from the city’s renowned Arena.

The refurbishment project, which began in 2016, has seen £450,000 spent on turning 53 of its rooms into 'City Doubles'. Continuing into 2017, the hotel has most recently seen £200,000 spent on converting 18 of its bedrooms into 'Classic Twin' bedrooms.

The work will continue throughout the year, and will incorporate the refurbishment of its Wallace Suite, and six other meeting rooms which together hold up to 170 delegates.

Amy Windsor, general manager at Hallmark Hotel Birmingham Strathallan said: "With Birmingham’s position as a UK hub for the meetings and events market, we are especially keen to see the completion of our Wallace Suite – our largest conference suite – which we’re looking forward to unveiling later this autumn."
