Took ages to check in because there was only one person on reception on the busiest party night of the year. The room smelt of fried breakfast and the corridor smelt of alcohol. It was a double room with only 2 flat pillows (one each). The duvet was thin and the mattress really uncomfortable. We ended up leaving at 5.30... More

We stayed at the Ramada Encore for only one night, and we did get a cheap price compared to the other NEC hotels, but there is a reason. The reception, rooms and the restaurant areas are clean and tidy, and have modern decor, though the restaurant could benefit from being screened off from the lounge area and it's big 'sports'...

British hotels are by international comparison invariably poor and the Ramada NEC was no exception. Only took it because the other near-airport hotels were full. It appears to live from its proximity to the airport, train station and the Exhibition Center and does not feel the necessity to spruce itself up. Reception/Check Out was slow and undermanned. The bar/restaurant was... More

We stayed at this hotel whilst attending an event at the NEC. Ideal location as it's approx 10 minute walk from the hotel to the NEC. Be warned though the walk is not particularly well lit and you walk through an industrial estate. The room was clean but very basic. There was no wardrobe just a hook on the wall.... More

We stayed here last weekend so we could attend an event at the NEC. Hotel check in by receptionist, Salman, was very efficient, friendly and quick. We changed rooms due to our initial room on the first floor (room 141) being a little small and noisy as was at the back of the hotel overlooking the main road and we... More

I stayed here for 1 night as we were attending an event in Birmingham and it was easier to park here and commute rather than try to find a hotel in central Birmingham with parking. The hotel is very basic however with very easy access to the NEC or Birmingham international train station which was a plus. The room was... More

Cheap ill fitting laminate floors in rooms, mildew on tiling in bathroom noise from other guests, staff untrained the only reason for the high price from what I could see was its location close to the NEC
