It is not that close to NEC as others hotels do, but still it keeps the same high price due it. It is true that the hotel holds the Holiday Inn quality levels, there is lot of parking area around and enjoys of a very nice pub next door, but I guess that those value add will be only for...

Typical Holiday Inn Express. Rooms clean and sizeable. Staff very friendly. The chap who checked us in, Bilaal, was really helpful and efficient. Kitchen doesn't open until 18.00 but next door is open.
