Stayed here before and after holiday to Turkey. Good value and only 10 minutes walk to the monorail that delivers you smoothly to the airport. Parked the car outside hotel for 8 nights. On return from holiday, about midnight, the stragglers from a wedding were still drinking in bar. Asked guy (think his name was Guy !) on reception for... More

Stayed in April 15, although is that doesn't matter as airport hotels are the same all year round(especially in the UK). Very basic, simple hotel that does what is expected from Airport Hotels. The room was clean, spacious with all the facilities you would expect although there wasn't a safe in the morning room. You get the bangs and people... More

Friendly and helpful staff but that's all. There's no Wifi in the rooms. There's a £7.50 per night charge for parking. The food is hit and miss depending on which brand of frozen ready made ingredients they use. I had to use a steak knife to cut the chicken. My window was screwed shut. The smell of stale tobacco greets... More

We have stayed here several times over the years when going to concerts. You pay for the convenience of being able to walk to the NEC because it is not that cheap (although the price obviously fluctuates according to supply and demand and what is on at the NEC). Our room was light, spacious and clean. The bathroom had quite... More

Recent 2 night stay while visiting the Gadet Show. At £27 per night, it was very close to the NEC & the train station. (Plus £7.50 a day to park in the hotel car park) Reception staff were great as I asked for a room change on the second day due to a very damp, smelly bathroom; this was accommodated... More

Good value for money. Very convenient location off the motorway and easy to find. Good location for the NEC and the train station to get into central Birmingham. Efficient check in. Clean room. Would go there again.

Stayed here for one night before a trip to Iceland and found it to be fine for what we needed. It is only a few minutes walk to the airport tram and then only another couple of minutes to the airport. We didn't eat here as we went to the airport to eat but there seemed plenty of people eating.... More

Very local to NEC. Stayed here three years on the trot when visiting Gadget Show Live. Prices vary drastically based on availability, so book early and try laterooms. They charge £7.50 for overnight parking. Restaurant closed due to return when we visited, resulting in a 3 mile walk to a nearby pub. Rooms comfy & quiet

Stay here recently as we had an early flight in the morning from Birmingham airport. Was welcomed by a pleasant girl at reception. Room was small but clean and had everything you needed for 1 night. We did a test run from the hotel the night before to see how long it would actually take walking from hotel in morning.... More

My first impressions were very positive. The lobby was clean and relatively stylish. The staff were not only friendly but very professional and courteous. My room on first impressions was functional and spacious, it had all the makings of a decent hotel. However upon closer inspection it was clear that the bathroom had seen better days. It was grubby, not... More
