We stayed at the Etap (Room 510) for one night when we went to see Neil Young at the NEC. It really is well positioned for events at the NEC and you can get the monorail from the airport which is just across the road.
It cost us £73 for the 2 of us. This included overnight parking and breakfast which we thought was very reasonable.
The hotel is a budget one but for one night was absolutely fine. The room was pretty compact but was clean and did have a very comfortable double bed, a good shower and a decent TV. Soap and shampoo were provided.
The staff were all friendly, helpful and efficient and the breakfast was good value.
We did however have a complaint. When we went to bed we found that the sheet stopped about 20 inches from the bottom of the bed which meant our feet were on the mattress - not very hygenic.We coundn't pull the sheet to the bottom or that would have created the same problem at the top. We could have gone down to reception however it was after midnight and we were pretty whacked after the gig.
We spoke to the manager (Robert) the following morning and he was most apologetic. Hopefully it was a one off but you might like to check for yourselves when you first get to your room.
It was a shame we had this problem as everthing else was fine. I can't imagine however how whoever prepared the room didn't notice it!
