“Good short stay”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I arrived at the Holiday Inn Solihull near midnight on the night of my stay, and was warmly welcomed. It's a Holiday Inn - so, it fits a certain bill. I've got to say that the corporate strategy for Holiday Inn is working - they've done a very good job of updating properties in the UK and attracting business and family clients alike. Whereas if I'm on vacation, I'd normally want a boutique hotel, if I'm doing a roadtrip with the family or a business stay... Holiday Inns are just fine. I choose them because they're clean, usually recently remodeled, and include breakfast and a workout area / pool. The breakfast was nice, the pool area was great, and the gym was also very good. I only spent the night, but it was a night worth spending.

I have stopped in this lovely hotel on the way back from the Download Festival, despite arriving really late we were welcomed at reception and within 5 minutes we weres in a spacious and comfy bed. Place was really clean and the breakfast was up to standards. I recommend!

Third year of stopping here and very good value as usual. We use it as a base for the Gardeners World/Good Food show and get a taxi to the NEC. The hotel is clean, although this year there was a wedding on, so the bar was understaffed and therefore empties weren't quickly cleared. However we couldn't hear the disco etc, so we were happy about that. We don't stop for breakfast, so I can't comment on the standard of food. The car park fee is reasonable and there is a variety of eateries (TGI, La Tasca, Bella Italia, Wagamama etc) just across the road in the shopping centre.

We were here for a full day business meeting. The facilities are first class, the food was tasty. Great service. Really impressive and I would highly recommend this venue to other companies looking for somewhere to hold offsite meetings.

From the initial check in to the final checkout. The hotel ran smoothly without mishaps even though they seemed to have quite a large wedding to cope with on the Saturday. Not at any time did we hear noise from other guests or from street traffic, it was an extremely peaceful stay. Very conveniently opposite Solihull's touch wood shopping mall. All the staff at all times were polite and helpful. will definitely be stating again

Picked this place due to the location and it was a decent price. Wasn't expecting great things but was surprised. Firstly the rooms are as you'd expect its not 5 star but its fine and as you'd expect for the price. But the service from the staff is unusually exceptional. Everyone we dealt with was fantastic especially Isobel on reception who went out of her way to make sure we had a great experience. The staff at the lounge were friendly too. Totally exceeded what I expected and we will definitely be staying there again.

Stayed 3 nights here recently for business and found the whole place to be very friendly, clean and comfortable. The room was very spacious and well presented. THe location is fantastic being right next to a large shopping centre which gave me options for evening activities.

Thank you to all the team there, made my stay very comfortable.
