Stopped here for two nights on a work trip. Had no choice of which hotel I stayed at on the NEC site as booked through corporate. Hotel is on par with a Premier Inn but beds not as good as a Premier Inn, Air conditioning in room is a bonus, shower not the most powerful and no bath but prefer... More

Well located for the M42. The prices move dramatically depending on market forces driven by events at the NEC but often has an attractive offer. A real friendly team with Chelsea and Olivia great ambassadors for the brand. A few extra choices compared to a normal HIE with bacon, crumpets etc. I appreciate the proximity to the NEC and airport... More

We used this hotel as an overnight stop after landing at Birmingham airport quite late at night. Due to road works it was quite difficult to find but when we finally got there check-in was quick and efficient and the room was clean and just what you would expect from the holiday inn express chain. Breakfast is included in the... More

Had such a lovely staff. The staff were so welcoming & upbeat! Made me feel happy from the minute I arrived. The only downside was paying for parking but I knew this when I booked the hotel.... Thank you for a lovely staff, spent the evening at resort world :)

Stayed on business recently, it was booked thinking it was a regular Holiday Inn, which it definitely isn't. Clean and friendly with good service, though. Breakfast included - which is good as I wouldn't have paid much for it. Thought that £7 per night to park the car when you are basically in the middle of nowhere a bit of... More

Stayed for 1 night for the show in the NEC. Usually stay at the Hilton or Crowne Plaza but Was pleasantly surprised by the Holiday Inn Express. Nice, friendly staff. Rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. Bathroom a little small but nothing major. Free breakfast included which was average for a hotel. Would stay again.

Airport parking was £70 or this hotel with 2 weeks parking was £75....no brainer. We weren't expecting much because of the price but it was fantastic and very convenient. Taxis to and from the airport were quick and only £8. Breakfast was delicious and the restaurant manager (a lady on 28th sept) went over and beyond with our kids. We... More
