We stayed here over a weekend to attend an event at the NEC. Our room was a standard double, which is very small and basic but it is very clean, comfortable and functional. The rate we paid was £75 p/night which was the "event rate" but we saw that the same room went for £18 p/night on "non-event" nights. I don't think we got £75's worth but I booked months in advance and it was the cheapest hotel I could find at the airport on the particular weekend, so I think it was fine. There is no hairdryer in the room but one can be obtained from reception for a refundable deposit. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are ample restaurants at the airport (only 2 minutes walk) and at the adjacent hotels (Ibis and Novotel). We had the hotel's continental buffet breakfast in the morning, which cost £4.25pp. It included croissants, toast, butter & jam, fruit salad, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee, muffins, cheeses. It wasn't out of this world but it was nice enough. The only two things which I thought was a bit annoying was the fact that the room didn't have tea/ coffee making facilities and wi-fi was only available in the hotel lobby. Fair enough that we had to pay for it (only £3 for 3 hours which wasn't much) but then we couldn't use it in our room. All in all though the hotel was great for access to the airport and NEC (1.5 minutes on the monorail from the airport). I would definitely stay here again if I had an early morning flight or event at the NEC.
