I stayed here with several colleagues for an exhibition at the NEC. On the positive side there were good fitness facilities including a small gym, pool and hot tub, and the buffet breakfast was always fresh and topped up. The check-in/reception staff were also very helpful.
The rooms are average however with very narrow beds with sheets and blankets on. The shower cubicle is tiny, and a few of my colleagues seemed to struggle with the doors. The lift seems to be ancient and therefore very slow so its easier to lug your bags up the stairs.
Overall the hotel is quite dated and could probably do with a good overhaul if it's to keep attracting the NEC crowd.
