Originally a coaching inn, the Old Rose and Crown Hotel is steeped in history and is a landmark building in the heart of the stunning Lickey Hills. Set in the 400-acre park, the hotel is easily accessible from the M42 and M5 motorways - and just 9 miles from Birmingham City Centre.
The hotel boasts 11 en-suite guest rooms, function rooms for civil weddings and wedding receptions for between 45 and 140 guests, conference facilities and a restaurant which is open for Sunday lunch.
Born and bred in Kings Norton, Birmingham, Andrew has happy memories of his grandad taking him to the Lickeys to feed the ducks and sledge down Beacon Hill.
Now married with three grown-up children, he jointly owns the hotel with wife Joanna. They took over in 2002 and oversaw a full refurbishment in 2009.
Andrew has spent his entire career in the hospitality industry, attending Birmingham College of Food as a school leaver. He has worked in 3* hotels and his career culminated in being Operations Director of a Canadian hotel chain at the tender age of 32!
Leading the team at the Old Rose and Crown Hotel, Andrew continues to make improvements to the customer experience and aims to be number 1 on TripAdvisor.
