We stayed here overnight mid October to see a concert at the LG Arena. Joyce on reception was extremely polite and helpful. Rooms are much as you would expect in a budget hotel, albeit an expesive budget hotel! If you are using a Satnav do NOT use P40 1PJ as you will end up at a barrier and will not... More

I have stayed here before as it is ideal for walking to the NEC. The breakfasts are excellent but my only criticism is that the rooms are very dark, beds narrow with very soft mattresses. I realise that it is a budget hotel and that hanging space is at a premium if staying for longer than one night. I can... More

Extremely good value with an early booking and just a short walk, albeit through the back areas / trading estate, to the NEC, airport and train station. Parking was busy but we did manage to find a space and they accommodated our friends who needed somewhere to park that day as well (but weren't staying). Also the car could stay... More

Stayed here before catching early flight from Birmingham Airport. Hotel is nothing to shout about. Rooms are basic but perfectly adequate. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Easy to drive to and then the following morning, just a short clearly signposted walk past some industrial units then up in the lift to the railway station and catch the shuttle train... More

Stayed overnight and left the car for a week while on holiday. Very reasonable hotel only worked out at About £20 more than parking would have cost. Easy location to find. Good size rooms which are adequate in respect of comfort for the short stay. Food was reasonable and service excellent. Easy walk from the hotel about 5 mins to... More

Flying from Birmingham Airport early on a Monday morning we needed an overnight stay and car parking for a week when flying to Madeira. The room was basic but very comfortable with car parking a breeze. We left too early for breakfast but were within easy walking distance of the Mono-Rail which took us right into the airport. On our... More

I had the unfortunate displeasure of having to stay here with work for one night recently, and I have to say that I'm glad it was just the one night. The location, although close to the NEC is basically in an industrial park. You are surrounded by industrial units and even have to drive in to the car park through... More

I stayed at the Ramada Encore for 5 nights while attending a trade show at the NEC. The location is handy for the NEC but staff omitted to tell me about the skywalk so my first journey was a bit epic! The bed was possibly the hardest bed I've ever slept (or not slept) in but I managed to get... More

Thank you for your review. The matress firmness is a very personal choice and pleased we were able to help by placing a duvet beneath to soften it a little for you. Our team are our greatest asset and I am extremely pleased you found them helpful during your stay. When you stay again, please ask to speak to Vas... More

Booked through Booking.com a few weeks before the visit and got a great price so worth checking prices. Room was basic but clean and the only issue really was that the TV was small to be seen from the bed. Minor issue and for the price not a deal breaker. Location was excellent. We were visiting an exhibition at the... More

Stayed 1 night while attending a concert at the LG Arena, got an amazing rate of £27 for a double room. The room was a good size, bed was comfortable and the bathroom area was clean with a good shower. This hotel is mainly used by exhibitors attending shows at the NEC so the breakfast and bar area's are similar... More
