We stayed here after a late arrival into the airport. The hotel is so close to the airport - within 10 mins of collecting our bags we were checked in and in the room, just a short walk across the car park from arrivals. When we left in the morning the monorail got us from the hotel to the platform at Birmingham International rail station within 10 minutes of checking out. This hotel and the airport is great for getting to by public transport - I suspect for most people its cheaper and easier to get the train here than drive. If you do drive though its probably worth calling the hotel for advice on parking deals.
The lady who checked us in and the guy on the desk in the morning were both very nice and friendly. Extra towels and pillows were collected on check in, which I normally do when staying at Etap, and the staff had no problem with this.
I cannot really criticise the room either, for what we paid its good value. We slept well, and were not disturbed by any airport noise, which is quite remarkable when you consider how close you are to the planes. We pulled the blind down in the evening and it would not open again in the morning but we were leaving anyway so no big problem.
If you are sharing the room (which will hold 3 people comfortably) please note there is limited privacy. With the shower in the room, for example as a teenage boy I would not have been comfortable sharing this room with my parents.
The breakfast £3.75 for all you can eat is good value, compared to food you will get in the airport or station. Continental with a British angle. In the evening, there is a fridge selling a few bits of food and drink, or the Ibis hotel next door does food and drink in the evening, or there is an M&S Food in the Airport Arrivals hall which is open late (post midnight).
