Greswolde Arms Hotel
The Greswolde Arms Hotel
With its distinctive fresh white exterior and a prominent position on the High Street in the historic village of Knowle, The Greswolde Arms Hotel is a 17th Century former coaching inn on the old turnpike road from London to Birmingham. Situated three miles south of Solihull and midway between Birmingham and Warwick, it is the perfect West Midlands hotel location to explore either city, or enjoy some of the lovely surrounding Warwickshire countryside.
Warwick Castle, Cadbury World and Royal Leamington Spa are within easy reach, and Knowle itself retains much charm, with many attractive timber-framed cottages and a 15th Century church and Guild House. The hotel is located just three doors up the High Street from Knowle’s famous 15th Century Chester House Library, a beautifully restored timber framed listed building boasting an authentically designed Elizabethan Knot Garden.
The ideal hotel for the NEC and Birmingham International Airport
Birmingham NEC is less than six miles away, making The Greswolde a very convenient hotel base for NEC exhibitors and visitors alike. Birmingham International Airport is just one junction along the M42 – typically less than 15 minutes – which means that airport travellers can relax and unwind before or after their journey. Guests using the hotel on business find it an ideal location just a short drive from Solihull, Birmingham and Coventry. Yet despite being within easy reach of the NEC, the Airport and the main West Midlands towns and cities, The Greswolde Arms Hotel in picturesque Knowle feels a world away from all things work-related.
