Have stayed at this hotel previously because it is close to the nec but this visit was not so good. The hotel is in the middle of renovation before it becomes an IBIS. We were in room 129 we had asked for a quiet room. The first thing I noticed was the security bar on the inside of the door... More

Stayed at hotel to be near NEC which is perfect only a 15 minute walk. Hotel very sparse of furniture but adequate for a basic hotel. Car parking quite expensive on top of your room. Restaurant staff not very friendly when i asked for decaf coffee we were told very abruptly that no they don't have any. When I later... More

Business trip at the NEC and stayed for one night- most other hotels were either full or charging ridiculous rates. Hotel is basic and simple but serves it's primary function as a stopover hotel for the NEC. 5 min walk to the NEC and also train station. Don't expect much- you get what you pay for! wifi does not work... More

This hotel is the perfect location for events at the NEC. The room was very nice and clean and there was shower gel in the bathroom. The only let down was the breakfast, we went down at 09.00am and it was already cold with hard fried eggs. that is the only reason it didn't score a 5. The staff were... More

I've stayed at the Ramada many times over the past few years for events at the NEC and usually things have been excellent, which is why I keep on coming back. This time however there were a couple of niggles that I hope will be ironed out quickly. First, the noise in my room was awful. My room was at... More

This was a complete last minute booking and for the price I was quite excited- used to staying in hotels where the price is generally around the £60 mark, I thought we were staying in a lovely 'posh' hotel. My gosh! Not the case - have never had to pay extra for parking!! Think it's really naughty to charge for... More

Hotel was slightly more difficult to find than the Satnav described, but a friendly security guard helped out. He clearly gets a lot of people needing directions as he had slips of paper with directions based on roundabouts. Plenty of car parking. Room was comfortable and food in restaurant was good. Breakfast was ok. Location was ideal and I left... More

Stayed 2 nights as I was attending a big event at the NEC. Probably a 10 minute walk from the Birmingham International airport, and at first you think you're on an industrial park which is the way you'd approach it by foot from the NEC. Check in was ok, with a bright and spacious reception area. Evidently the hotel has... More

When attending events at the NEC, it is necessary to stay in one of the NEC hotels. We chose Ramada because the others were full. The rooms are small, the bed linens are sparse (no pillow protection), the sheet barely stayed on the bed. The room was clean, Wifi only works in lobby without plugging in. The dinner was ok...

Stayed here for 2 nights while attending an event at the NEC and it's in an ideal location for that. Clearly signposted from the NEC and five minutes walk from there and the train station. It's a decent hotel for a decent price, rooms spacious enough with hair dryer, tea making facilities etc but no bath so be warned if... More
