This hotel is okay, but needs to invest in decent pillows and mattresses because we didn't sleep that well. Also was surprised that the wifi was only downstairs and not in the rooms. We had a meal in the restaurant downstairs which was lovely and reasonably priced.

We arrived by train & Hotel is clearly signposted from the station. A short walk round the back of the exhibition halls & you're there. Check-in was very efficient & the receptionist was very pleasant & helpful in providing directions to the arena. Sadly housekeeping in our room let this hotel down. Sweet wrappers by the side of the bed,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights for work. Its a 5min walk to the NEC so very near. The rooms are simple with a nice enough bathroom. The lighting is quite poor in the rooms and there are clear freeview channels. One of our bedside lamps didnt work though and we're not sure why this wasn't checked and changed. Food... More

Dreadful hard beds and no wifi in rooms. Great Indian restaurant nearby called Rasa! Staff friendly and helpful....but it is rather like a student hall of residence with cafeteria like restaurant facilities.

We booked the hotel for a park and stay visit but due to getting a new knee I couldn't fly. As we had booked it as a non refundable booking we decided to utilize the hotel. The staff were great and looked after me and my crutches right through the hotel. The food was very good and the bar area... More

Is ideal location for nec and airport, i paid alot for the room as something going on in area and had early morning flight so needed the location. Rooms are basic but clean everything you need, communal areas in hotel was dirty and could do with a good hoover. Food is very poor and expensive for what you get, i... More

Found accessible room rather small, bed very uncomfortable and wifi access only available in public areas. On a more positive note there is good wheelchair access from the hotel to the NEC and the staff did help by finding us a longer cord to get us the wired internet access from the desk to reach the laptop on the bed.

I would say just dont bother..while it is convinient being able to walk to NEC, its just not worth it..we should have had suspions as they were rude and unhelpful on the phone beforehand when we tried to change the booking, the first room we were given was tiny, no chair and a small single bed had been pushed in,...

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
