This Holiday Inn Express hotel is what you expect, the rooms are okay, a fine size and still in a good condition. The location is not the best due too way to much noise from the motorway. The breakfast buffet is absolute nothing, so low quality standard that it is better to skip this. Staff friendliness is awesome. So all... More

... Is the worst I think I have ever (tried) to eat. I know it is a Holiday Inn Express, I have stayed in quite a few, so I know what to expect. The hotel is fine, clean spacious and clean, however most HIE have a pub, or restaurant close by so a reasonably evening meal can be had. This... More

what makes this hotel is the staff. This is a standard holiday inn express, of which I have stayed at many, but this site is set apart from the others, by the friendly, helpful staff. I find my own demeanour and manner improves just being here! I am not known for my restraint when service or standards aren't met, by... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. Access to the hotel from the M6 is very easy. As was travel from the hotel to the NEC which took about 15 mins. There is a dual carriageway right outside the hotel but the noise from this is fairly minimal. However, it appears the flight path from the airport is directly overhead... More

Booked this hotel last minute to save doing a whole day round trip picking daughter up from university. Picked this hotel on the fact it had free parking and breakfast included something a lot of Birmingham hotels add on top of the room price!! We checked in at 8.40pm and was greeted by friendly staff.

No frills hotel, but nice room and bathroom. A little bit worn round the edges, but clean and ideal if you don't want to fork out for the hotels closer to Birmingham Airport. The breakfast us included and is a self service affair with croissants, toast and cereal or hot items. Don't expect gourmet, but great as a freebie. Functional... More
