“Clean, basic, cheap but beware car park charges”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

Stayed here at the weekend when visiting NEC. Very convenient with free airport shuttle. Rooms are basic, clean and functional. A little cramped for 3 and got extremely stuffy. No air con but too noisy with window open due to traffic (we were first floor). The bed was cheap and rather uncomfortable. Staff were lovely and helpful. The major downside were the excessive parking charges at the NCP car park opposite. Had no option but to park here and the charges incurred were double the price we had paid for the room (even with the hotel discount voucher). Think I would prefer to pay more for a room with free/subsidised parking and get a better nights sleep in future, in more pleasant surroundings.

Thanks for leaving your thoughts here.
We appreciate all feedback and are glad you enjoyed your stay.
we’ve taken note of your comment regarding the Car Park cost.
Please note that due to our location at the Airport, opposite the Terminals, we do not have our own Car Park as you mentionned. Therefore, we can only offer discounted price with the NCP car parks around us. Further details can be found by contacting the Hotel directly.
I hope we can welcome you back to the hotel.
Kind regards,
Frederic Dumont
General Manager

Amazing location even a wuss like me can walk to the airport dragging luggage it is so close. Rooms clean although unbelievably basic, but great price. Only downside was no kettle. Who has an English hotel without tea in the rooms?

This was just what we needed. A clean room with a comfortable bed for only £18 Highly recommended and will use in the future and at other locations. The breakfast at £3.75 was continental and was plentiful

The hotel receptionist was very efficient and the room was very clean, although a little small and spartan. However it had all I needed for an overnight stay. The bed was good with a firm mattress so I was able to sleep easily.

However at 2:30am, the person in the room next door arrived and because their room adjoined mine, there was no soundproofing for under the adjoining door, so the sound of the television and their room lights came into my room from the gap under the door.

Walking distance from arrivals gate. Connected to the Ibis. Stayed at Etaps before, this was easily the best: good service, clean simple rooms and by being at airport means actually a good base for public transport and easy access into the city and beyond. Guessing also ideal for early morning flights too. Services are sparse but if you need anything the airport is right there with it's shops and restaurants.
