stayed for 3 nights here and really enjoyed it staff was very helpful and rooms spotless and spacious the only downfall was the bed was a little uncomfortable. bathroom was lovely and clean with a walk in shower which was very powerful. 24 hour bar was a bonus with a smoking terrace the only thing that really lets this hotel...

We only paid £27.00 for our double room as we booked several months in advance. Arrived by taxi from home, postcode sent us on a circuitous route but soon sorted. Room was very cold to start, would have been nice to have been preheated, but soon rectified. Nice and spacious for 1 night. Ate in the restaurant, very quiet, good... More

Situated on the industrial estate near the Nec, Birmingham International Station and airport the location is very convenient. We stayed at a weekend to attend an exhibition at the nec. We were able to travel by train and thuis was in walking distance of everything. The position isn't picturesque and it's a no frills hotel but extremely god value never... More

Was here for one night 18-2-15 while exhibiting at NEC. Rooms very basic although walk-in shower good (no bath). Most ridiculous lighting in room, no ceiling lights, just GU10 LED spotlights, one either side of bed on flexible stalks, one by table/tv, one in entrance area plus bathroom. Was like the Dark Hole Of Calcutta ! No chance if you... More

Some of the brand elements will be changing in teh summer as we change brand i.e carpets. The pricing around the area of similar brands does tend to depend on what is going on around the NEC. I do hope that you will have a look at us on line when we are rebranded and try us again. Regards, Alison More

We stopped here last week prior to jetting off from Birmingham Airport for a short break. It's easy to find and ideally located for the NEC as well as the airport. Decent sized car part at front and easy access to the friendly open plan reception. Whereupon we were speedily booked in by their amiable staff. Our room was absolutely... More

I think you've said it all!- I'm only sorry I cannot trace which room you were in to check out the heating as we have two forms of heating in the rooms. Jeremy will recieve recognition for your mention. The programme we begin shortly will include carpets to the rooms and in most opinions remove the minimalist appearance. Regards, Alison More

Thank you for your short review- great to read about the staff and cleanliness. Shops are coming! although we are yet to know which stores will be within the new development at the other side of the NEC- basics can be purchased at the airport and we have most essentials at Reception- very often the team will call nights to...

Stayed here on the 20/02/15 - even though we have stayed here before i find the prices this time round are inflated. The evening meal though okay was not memorable. Breakfast was worse as they kept running out of everything and seemed very under staffed and did not seem to be able to keep up with demand. Parking is ridiculous... More

I stayed at the hotel whilst attending a conference, and although it seemed to be a little out of the way whilst driving it was actually a 5 min walk to the NEC. The hotel has minimalist accommodation but it was clean, and the staff at reception and in the bar were pleasant. I had food at the bar in... More
