Reviewed May 1, 2014

this trip was purchased as a groupon deal which included dinner on 1 night and breakfast each morning.we arrived late Friday afternoon and went straight up to our room. on the way to the room there was an overpowering smell of disinfectant. the room was dark as the curtains were closed after the room was serviced?? this caused a bit of a problem as there was an extra bed in this room and we bumped into it. the menu hasn't got a great choice but the food was ok.
.when we finally went back to our room we watched tv for a little while then went to bed as the room was quite cold.. the bed was uncomfortable as the mattress was very firm and the pillows not very plump so I didn't get much sleep.
breakfast the next morning was pretty much standard but a bit dry. we were out all day with relatives but it was late when we got back and we were hungry so went to the bar for crisps and were told they did pizza and sandwiches so ordered pizza and it arrived at our room soon after we did and it was delicious. still didn't get much sleep because of the bed. as I mentioned before about the other bed in our room being a bit of a problem. it was at the foot of the double we were in and to move about the room you had to squeeze between the foot of the single and the wardrobe thing through a gap of about a foot wide which caused much banging of knees.
breakfast the next morning was fresher than the day before. the hotel was clean and tidy but quite basic and the staff were very friendly and helpful

Dear pebblesrd,

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us.

I am disappointed to read that you were not happy with your room, after we have serviced our bedrooms we like to close the curtains to keep the heat in the rooms. If ever you experience any problems or are dissatisfied in any way please contact our reception team who will be happy to help you the best they can.

We have taken your feedback on board regarding the restaurant and will look into ways of improving the experience for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Regards

More than happy with this hotel. Booked through LateRooms for a bargain £27 per night for a double room. Room was clean, nicely (although to a budget) furnished, and within walking distance of the NEC complex. Staff were all polite and friendly, could not fault the stay at all.

New to this brand. Think I was expecting a full on ramada. It was ok but for me a bit basic and a bit minimal I can't decide if this is a budget trying to be full service or a full service which is not quite there. Bed was comfy. Staff really friendly. Within this price sector I'd compare it to the nearby premier inn. It was much much better than the premier inn but in fairness was also £20 more. I would stay again if it was just a one nighter. There was a lot of noise in the night which is why I didn't give four. I appreciate this is due to other guests and not hotel. But the building seemed very echoey and stompy in the rooms above / next door

We stayed for night but were more than happy with the Hotel. Very modern and clean,it was ideal for the LG Arena. The room was comfortable,the dining room/bar was one room so people were having to sit at the dining tables when the bar got busy, could do with more seating in the bar but other than that it was great. The breakfast was fab and the coffee machine was fantastic(a great cup of coffee) We will definately return, staff were very helpful and polite.

Comfy beds, spacious rooms, clean. Food and service lovely. Breakfast a bit expensive but can't fault the stay. Our first room lights didn't work but we got transferred and upgraded to an even bigger room.
