“Spot on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

What a pleasure it was to stay in this hotel.
The rooms are fabulous and spotlessly clean. As for the beds, I've never slept in one as big or as comfortable. The shower rooms are amazing. Fantastic tv with no shortage of channels including Sky etc. All this, plus free wi-fi throughout
The buffet breakfast is free and more than adequate, offering something for everyone.
The restaurant and bar served great food and drink at very reasonable prices.
The staff were all very helpful and extremely courtious.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates genuinely good hospitality at down to earth prices.
A definite winner which is "spot on".

Had a meeting at Edgbaston and needed somewhere close and found this. This place is quite nice actually! Modern, clean and pleasant staff.
Car park is a bit tight but otherwise a nice place
Would use again if needed

We stayed here for one night in January as we were going to the Autosport Performance Show at the NEC the next day, and we're from near Liverpool. The hotel was stunning - gorgeous sized room, large television, really comfortable bed with a choice of pillows. The bathroom was the highlight of the stay - that shower was INCREDIBLE, could have stayed in there for hours. Still looks brand new. The staff were lovely and in fact quite funny to be around! Nice quiet night, no noise interruptions from outside or other hotel stayers. Would seriously recommend this to anyone :)

Breakfast the next morning free and included? Was the cherry on top, lovely selection of hot and cold foods, as well as plenty of fruit.

Hoping to return to Autosport next January - will be staying here again!!

Stayed here with my adult son for just one night on a visit to the Autosport International Exhibition at NEC
This is truly a gem of an hotel...Very friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to be helpful and seem genuinely proud of the hotel...High quality, spotlessly clean well decorated room with a huge shower in the good sized bathroom.
Excellent nights sleep in a very comfortable bed and a good Express Breakfast with plenty of choice on the menu
Car parking in the secure camera monitored car park is a modest but well worth extra cost
This is certainly a gem amongst Holiday Inn Express hotels and one to which I hope to return on my next visit to Birmingham

Stayed here for 2 nights this weekend and once again it was absolutely perfect. The location is great! Still looks brand new. The rooms are spotless and have nice modern decor and facilites. The showers are amazing! Absolute bargain of a price considering you get a gorgeous room, free breakfast (which has a large selection of hot and cold food, free wifi (speed is excellent), flatscreen TV and free tea/coffee, free soap/shower gel and the rooms also have a hairdryer & plenty of towels unlike some hotels. Check in & out was just as smooth as last time. The thing that made our stay the most enjoyable though, was the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff - especially Sam, the deputy manager! A MASSIVE thank you Sam, if you read this - she's a credit to the company & deserves a pay rise ;) She really went out of her way to welcome & interact with us and our children (who LOVED her lol). Our oldest was asking "Can we go down and see Sam now" first thing this morning. We will certainly be returning and encourage everyone else to give this place a try if you're looking to stay in the area. THANKS AGAIN!! :D
