Stayed 2 nights whilst at a conference at the nec - excellent staff on reception - good sized, well equipped rooms - free, well performing wifi - decent breakfast - well located - we chose to eat at the pub next door - that wasn't a great experience!

Nothing spectacular,but the simple done very well.Room was lovely and clean,comfortable bed,good sized shower and room temperature perfect for mild day but cold night. Breakfast was buffet style with everything you could need.Staff very attentive and friendly.All considered, for price and location this is a very good option that I will use again.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very clean and tidy room. Had all that I needed tv..shower...free wifi. Coffee/tea on arrival. Breakfast buffet was also of a very high quality. Cooked or continental was both very yummy and had plenty available. Happy to stay here again for short business trips.

Basic accommodation at an acceptable price. Room clean and of a decent size, shower excellent, comfortable bed. More than sufficient for a one night stay. Description a bit misleading in terms of "easy" access to Birmingham Airport - there is no alternative to having to take a taxi - approx £10 one way, but better connection to NEC itself.
