After a long tiring day at the NEC we just needed somewhere to crash. On our arrival the reception staff were very friendly & helpful(thank you). The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was a bit firm for my liking but my wife had a good nights sleep. I must stress that this is a no frills budget hotel which suited our needs for a one night stay & will use it again on our next visit.

Not quite budget prices at 80 sterling a night, but definitely budget room. Can you imagine not even having a telephone in the room? What if there is an emergency? Naturally no hairdrier or tea facilities as you'd expect in an hotel in the UK. Worse still we got in the hotel at around midnight and you find there is no shower gel or shampoo!! You have to buy them from reception!!! We were given a double bed with a bunk bed over our heads. Every time I got out of bed and stood up I ended up banging my head against the bed. The only positive thing is its location near the airport, otherwise forget it.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.

For a budget hotel, this was amazing.(This is Etap, soon to be Ibis budget) We landed at nearly midnight, tired after a long day travelling, walked 2 mins across terminal into hotel. We received a warm welcome and efficient service. Our room was quite small, but acceptable, with a great shower and TV and was very clean..We were very pleased with it, it was all we needed for an overnight stay and would definately recommend and stay again.

The hotel's main asset is its walking distance from Birmingham airport. But if budget is what you are looking for then look no further. Even shampoo needs to be purchased. There is no enclosed bathroom as sink forms part of the room whilst shower cubicle is isolated as is the toilet space which is extremely small and a feat to use. What is unacceptable is that the room has no telephone thereby limiting communication amongst the two rooms I booked. And all this for the not so budget price of £69 excluding breakfast despite the advert of lower prices.
