“Great overnight stay for conference at NEC.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

One night at this hotel, would certainly use again. Spotless, modern, great value, charming and helpful front desk staff. Breakfast full English plus all the rest. Access to NEC easy via free skyway (secretly quite good fun). Taxis arrive quickly if needed. Only gripe would be lack of free wifi.

we got put here by Thompsons holidays due to hurricane sandy hitting jamaica. We were given slops for food and advised by the waiters this was due to being on a delayed flight everyone else was offered menus and we were given what can only be described as something from school canteen. 2 drinks in the bar come to 12.90 take your own is my only advice on this. Seriously for such a high class hotel the service the prices were not something that was great especially being delayed for 2 days it is not what you need.

At a time when the airlines and other hotels are doing their utmost to assist those travellers affected by Hurricane Sandy, the Novotel at Birmingham Airport refused to give me a refund when I had to change my flights and could not stay on the night originally booked. I was upset enough by the last minute change to my long anticipated holiday and this just made it worse, so I will not be booking there or at any other Novotel ever again.

Rather bland business hotel in great location opposite the terminal at Birmingham Airport. Great for easy access to the NEC or Birmingham city centre in 10 minutes by train.
Very friendly efficient staff on reception and in restaurant.
Good breakfast either hot english or cold european style with many meats and cheeses. Why does the restaurant have to be so dark in the evening? Single table with their own TV for single travellers are an interesting Idea. Bar prices seemed slightly excessive
Rooms appear recently refurbished, with new TV/Ipod connection and swivelling desk. The carpets and couch however are showing some minor battle scars. Rooms are very quiet due to triple glazing with a huge gap between panes

I used this hotel for the night before before getting an 625am flight to America.
I arrived late, checking in at 11pm; staff were polite and efficient.
My room was clean and quite spacious. The view was across the airport terminal building but, despite being next to the airport, it was quiet.
Check out I. The morning was quick and the location is excellent; the terminal building is just across the road.
My only complaint is about the exorbitant wifi fees. Lots of hotels have dropped their charges for Internet access so having to pay over £10 for Internet access seems a bit of a rip off, especially when it is free for 30 minutes in the airport.
