“Does What It Says”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Just booked one night here and left the car for 2 weeks included in the price of £59 for double room. The room was pretty standard with TV, computer point and decent shower room. Only a double bed, though, not king size. However it was cheap and clean and good value. It is a 5 minute walk from the Birmingham International Train Station and the electric free train which takes you to the airport. Every guest in the hotel were roomed in consecutive rooms, however, and with comings and goings all night did not make for a good nights sleep. The doors bang and it really echoes.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor.

Many thanks for the posting.

We do try and put all guests going to the airport as close to the lift and reception as we can to avoid disturbing those that do not need to go to the airport early.

I do hope that you enjoyed your holiday and to book tha package again - please call us on 01217805900.

We stayed the night before flying from Birmingham airport the stay including parking, excellent service at reception and a comfortable room. When we returned we had a major problem with our car and it took 5 hours before we were on our way home. The staff at reception were so helpful, told us to take a paper and sit in comfort in the bar area. We had tea and coffee and all the staff were really concerned about our welfare, in particular Jeremy in the restaurant who really went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable, thank you so very much. This level of service is thin on the ground these days.

A friend and I stayed the night before a show we were attending at the NEC. I was not expecting much after reading other reviews. I was plesently suprised. The rooms were spotless not too small and just accross the road from the NEC. Breakfast was vast with many options. With the parking included in the hotel price it was excellent value and ideal for us.

my wife and i went to the bike show at the nec meeting a friend up there,having read some reviews of this hotel i was a bit dubious but we found it very good value its not the ritz but its not ritz prices.
as for the price of parking,if you are going to the nec then being able to park at the hotel for the day is good value and is within very easy walking distance.
overall a good place to stay for any show.

As we got a good deal including parking, it was ok for a one night stay, but had I paid the hormal room rate for it I would have been hopping. As said before the rooms are cold on entry due to the stupid requirement to insert your keycard. The bed is unbelievably small and not at all comfortable. If you want cheap parking and an overnight stay included then its a good deal, but lower your expectations on what sort of room you will get. On a positive the food and service are pretty good.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing the car park, its quiter than the road side.

My family and i stayed in this hotel as a result of our flights being cancelled. We selected the hotel from a list supplied by the Airline. Whilst the hotel was very comfortable there were several disappointing drawbacks. The rooms were cold on entry this was due to the need to insert your room key into the system which energizes everything including the lights and heating. We also found that the floors were very cold to walk on. The rooms were bright and airy and the beds comfortable.The shower was rather small.The restaurant was a bit of a let down My Daughter ordered Scallops at a cost of £6.95 There were two scallops on the plate which we thought was a bit expensive as there was nothing to go with them.My Wife ordered Duck Breast without potatoes and asked for vegetables instead. The Duck was over cooked and we had to ask again for the vegetables which were clod when served, these were sent back and arrived hot but looking very wilted, not good value at over £15. The others in the party had steak which was acceptable but at nearly £17 for a steak and a few chips was rather expensive
