We stayed the night in this hotel thurs night for our show day at crufts. We booked the room before Christmas and it was expensive. They never mentioned paying for dogs. And as I have stayed in holiday inns before and never paid for my dogs I was shocked. We had to pay £15.00 per dog so with me having...

Stayed at this hotel for one night before travelling from Birmingham airport. Checking in was easy and quick. Service very friendly. Room very clean and bed extremely comfortable. We ate at The Little Owl which is situated right next door. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Accommodation was clean and tidy. Only fault was we would have liked drawers or at least shelving to put clothes on. Hanging space was fine but nowhere to put things that are not on hangers. Breakfast was good - but please sort out the toaster. One of them wasn't hot enough to brown the toast it had to go in...

The room was very comfortable, clean and suited me down to the ground. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The only drawback is that the NEC is a short taxi ride rather than walking distance. Overall it is definitely one of the better hotels in the area and worth considering if attending the NEC.

I visited here for an exhibition at the NEC. As is quite usual for me I arrived late so was restricted to the bar menu and ordered a Club sandwich as there was nothing else that appealed to me.
