I've stayed in countless Midlands venues over the years - some good, some not so good, some amazing. And my recent stay at Brahman Hills slots right into the amazing category. Previously known as The Windmills, the venue has undergone a massive renovation and is under new ownership and now boasts hotel and self-catering accommodation, a restaurant, various event venues and an underground bar and cellar, as well as an on site spa to rival others in the area.
