History

Original building dates back to 1901 where it used to be primrose cafe. Baron’s court then became a popular nightclub called the Water Splash. In 1974 A local man by the name of Stephen Joynes bought the Water Splash nightclub in Walsall Wood and turned it into the popular Barons Court Hotel.

He named all the bedrooms after nights with the theme running through reception with a suit of Armour. The Jerome function suite today used to be the restaurant and the restaurant used to be a nightclub which attracted many young customers which then added to the success of the hotel.

The hotel originally only had 2 floors as the third one was added by Steve Joynes many years after he purchased it. It was then sold in 1989 to private owner, MacDonald hotels, Menzies and now belongs to Talash Hotels Ltd and part of Best Western Chain.
