Marriott Forest of Arden hotel near Birmingham Airport
The four-star Marriott Forest of Arden is certainly above par. This country club resort, which has two top-class golf courses, enjoys acres of grounds and beautiful landscaped gardens - so you'll never feel like you've landed in the rough. But don't worry, if a chucker of golf isn't your thing, there are plenty of other facilities to get your holiday on course: try the hotel's indoor heated pool, its generously-equipped gym, its relaxing spa and treatments, or a meal in Oaks, its award-winning bar and grill. Best of all, it's just four miles from Birmingham airport, with a journey time of around 15 minutes. We reckon if hotels could play the game, the Marriott Forest of Arden would be a hole in one …
