Parent accommodation

We understand how important it is for parents with babies or children in hospital that there is somewhere suitable to stay that is convenient and comfortable, especially for those who have travelled long distances.

A bedroom at Ronald McDonald House For families at our Children's Hospital, we have links with several local hotels and accommodation providers.

We also provide our accommodation, both within the hospital and in the adjacent Ronald McDonald House, which may be available if your child is going to be in hospital for more than three days, or there are special circumstances. Please note spaces are limited, so these options are subject to availability.

Accommodation within the Children's Hospital

The parents' accommodation, which is free of charge, has nine twin rooms and four single rooms. Rooms are usually available for parents and carers whose children are very poorly or if there are particular considerations, such as if you're disabled or have travelled a long distance.

As well as bedrooms, there are bathrooms and a kitchen area where you can make snacks and drinks.

We think it's important to look after the welfare of parents so you can look after your children. Parents need to rest too, so our parents' accommodation helps by providing a home-from-home environment where you can relax, watch TV and make a snack and a drink.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to reserve a room ahead of your stay or to be guaranteed a room. If you would like to stay, please tell your nurse on the ward when you first arrive. He or she will contact the relevant accommodation. If there isn't a room immediately available, your name will be put on a waiting list and you'll be informed when a room becomes vacant.

Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House Birmingham, which is run by independent charity Ronald McDonald House Charities, is a free-of-charge 'home-away-from-home', just a few minutes' walk from your child's ward at our Children's hospital.

The House can accommodate up to 60 families, 365 days a year and you can stay as long as you need to.

The House offers a place to relax away from the hospital, where families can take a shower and cook meals. Many of our families also benefit from sharing experiences with others in similar situations to them.

There are 60 large and spacious en-suite bedrooms, six of which are suitable for the disabled. Importantly, each room has a direct telephone line to the hospital ward.

The House has a large communal kitchen and a dining area and lounge on each floor. There is also a playroom, quiet room, three TV lounges and a room for teenagers. There is a laundry room where you can wash clothes, bed linen and towels.

You will be responsible for tidying up after yourself and keeping your room clean.

If you'd like to stay at Ronald McDonald House, please tell your nurse on the ward when you first arrive. If there isn't a room immediately available, your name will be put on a waiting list and you'll be told when a room becomes vacant. Unfortunately, it's not possible to guarantee a place ahead of your stay or reserve a room.
