Waterloo Hotel, Shireland Road, Smethwick - Sandwell

The Waterloo Hotel was built in 1907 by Wood and Kendrick for local brewers, Mitchells & Butler, in the baroque style with terracotta dressings. This is a near complete example of an Edwardian showpiece pub and commercial hotel, which retains many interior features including the ornately tiled basement grill room. The upper floors have been converted into flats and are partially occupied. Neglect of the ground floor and basement, leaking rainwater goods, broken window panes and the poor condition of joinery and basement railings put the building at risk.
