My wife and I stayed here with another couple over the Crufts weekend, for the second time. As after our last visit we were happy to come back again. Very local for the NEC and at a reasonable price. Yes the rooms and the decor are a little dated but I don't think you should expect these types of places to be redecorated every year and to look like a cosmopolitan hotel!
The breakfast buffet was good, similar to what you would expect from the legendary Hilton Buffet Breakfast. Staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel appears clean and tidy. Plenty of parking and the attached pub/restaurant was also very nice.
I think the expectation should be, that "you get what you pay for" as prices for the top hotels at the NEC were double this price.
Overall it was very good value and certainly suited what we were wanting to achieve for the weekend.
