We booked this hotel in connection with our trip to the LG Arena to see Justin Timberlake. I think I must have booked it 6 months in advance or around that mark. I paid £49 for a twin room up front, all rooms come with a free breakfast for guests. The staff were very friendly from walking through the door... More

Stayed at this hotel before an early flight to the airport. Good price for the room and car parking. The taxi to the airport in the morning (two mins away) was also included. The room was very clean and the beds (double and childrens bed) were very comfortable. Check in and out were super easy so a good option for... More

We booked this hotel as went to see Elbow last weekend at the LG Arena and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was lovely and clean and not bad for the price . It's best to get a taxi to the Lg as it's a bit of a trek and the hotel recommended a... More

My friend and I travelled to Birmingham to see a concert at The LG Arena so we were looking for an affordable hotel nearby. It is a 5 minute taxi journey from the hotel to The LG Arena. The hotel will arrange this for you and costs just £5.00. Check-in was quick and easy. We stayed in a twin room... More

The location is a bit remote compared to most other hotels around the NEC site. You can walk to the NEC / Arena in about 30 minutes or you can ask reception to order you a taxi (it cost us £5 to get to the Arena). Car parking was £7 a day, which seemed a bit steep compared to the... More

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate feedback as it gives us a chance to improve. As you appreciate the NEC is a large site and different hotels are closer to different areas. The charges for car parking are in place as it is an event hotel our charges for over night parking are cheaper than many of our... More

On appearance the hotel seemed nice, however a broken bed, change of room and a receptionist who couldn't careless about customers made the trip a regretable one. Breakfast was limited however understandably its an express hotel however due to the broke bed and the reception staff who were rude and blunt i wont be visiting Holiday Inn again!

Nice hotel, friendly clean etc. Good continental breakfast. There is a Pub next door. Chose this hotel because we was going to concert at LA Arena. Take a Taxi from the hotel as the walk is 1/2 hour and no pathways, so walking on grass verges until you get to the NEC and then pathways. Walked to arena as we... More

Stayed in the hotel for one night to save driving back from the NEC. Check is was pleasant and quick. Hotel is around 10 mins away from the NEC by taxi which is very handy. Room was as you would expect for a cheap over night stay, choice of 'hard' or 'soft' pillows were offered on the bed which was... More
