    Review: Taste At Rofuto New Menu Reveal

Located on the 16th floor of the Park Regis Hotel, Rofuto offers a wide range of traditional Pan Asian and Japanese cuisines. The restaurant also has its own separate entrance and express lift from the rest of the hotel, allowing a more ‘exclusive’ dining experience for guests. The restaurant lends itself to the prominent Japanese theme, with a koi carp graffiti wall mural upon entering and a theatrical bar centred in the middle of the room, overcast by dramatic wooden beams and lighting. The décor is modern and sleek with an…

    Park Regis: How A Spa Day Can Banish The Blues

Although I live just 10 minutes away from Birmingham city centre, there’s something about checking into hotel for the first time, room service, free toiletries, big comfy beds and walk in showers that just excites me.

    Win a Luxury Afternoon Tea for Two at Park Regis Hotel

    Being a food writer means I’m also a huge fan of afternoon tea, especially when it’s done properly. Last weekend I was invited to stay at the brand new delux Park Regis hotel in Birmingham. It’s located at the top Broad Street and boasts two new restaurants and a cocktail bar towering high above the city skyline. As far as hotel decor goes, the inside interior is stunning. My review of our stay, what we ate and how well Park Regis treated us will be posted shortly, but first… I have a wonderful competition to share with you. We were offered to try the Classic Afternoon Tea (£24) and it’s just a…
