Friendly check-in from the member of staff on duty, welcomed as an IHG member. The parking charge is unnecessary for the location, I know the NEC is next door but they have cameras registering entry and exit times so surely that can be implemented without a steep charge! However that said, standard HI express rooms, fairly spacious and clean. The... More

We stayed at this hotel last weekend whilst attending a convention. It provided good value for money. The rooms were very clean & a good size with a sofa, beds were comfortable, choice of pillows & tea/coffee in room, hairdryer & iron. Very good hot buffet breakfast included and the staff were all helpful and friendly.

This hotel is great value for money. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and offer full air conditioning which offered an extra degree of comfort. The staff offered exceptional service and could not be more helpful in servicing our requests. We Highly recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation in staying there again

We use this hotel for meetings, ok, facilities all adequate, the lunch/sandwiches they put on for us though are just stodge, nothing you look forward to. Hotel rooms clean. Good for the odd night. Nice pub next door for food and a drink on a evening.

This hotel offered exceptional value for money and even three in free breakfast, quite amazing really! We were met by friendly hotel staff and treated to service usually reserved for much more expensive hotels. The boys particularly liked the free cookie and milk offered by reception. Room was big enough, beds comfortable and breakfast was great.

After driving from the south of France heading to Glasgow we were more than ready for a good nights sleep in a decent hotel. We weren't disappointed. In fact we were totally impressed with the 2 adjoining rooms we were allocated- comfy beds, air con and fantastic showers. At £80 for the 2 rooms plus buffet breakfast for 3 adults... More

Clean, tidy room. Was quiet and comfortable and staff were lovely. Considering that pries from other places, it was good value. There was a decent breakfast, which came with the room rate which was reasonable. My only criticism (not the hotels fault) is the shocking food at the pub next door. Great for a drink, but order a take away... More
