Our flight was very early in the morning, so we decided to book at the Novotel Birmingham Airport.
This enabled us to start our holiday a little earlier, as we chilled in the pleasant bar the night before. Good selection of drinks and the food was good value for money.
We got the family room for an excellent price, so overall it was a great thing to do.
Only thing I'd say is that they need to vacuum and clean the rooms more thorough before the next guests. It wasn't dirty, dirty - but it wasn't spotless either.
