This really was a surprising delight, on every level. We needed a cheap and cheerful place to stay whilst exhibiting at a trade-show at the NEC. We decided to stay overnight at very late notice and did not want to have far to travel etc. Prices varied massively and we could have stayed at venue hotel for £120 each (!!) Anyway we plumped for the Gables and would do so every time.
We arrived at 1am due to a networking dinner and rang up to apologise and check that we could still get in! The member of staff on duty could not have been more accommodating. My room was delightful - beautifully refurbished recently? Thoughtful and attractive decor, lovely shower and everything I needed for a short or prolonged stay. Dining room was also beautifully decorated, very smart and breakfast menu quite extensive if I had had time!
I also had a very comfortable night's sleep with a selection of soft/firm pillows which was great as I need a soft one to avoid neck ache in the morning.
The same member of staff was on duty in the morning, again very helpful in every respect. He ordered us a taxi and it was with us within 5 mins. We were at the NEC within 15 mins of ordering.
My boss did not seem as impressed with his room as much as I was with mine, but perhaps his was due for refurb soon. He certainly had no complaints.
Incredible value and so convenient for NEC/airport without any noise disruption which was impressive.
