“Great value for money”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

This hotel turned out to be better than I thought it would be. I booked a one night stay here for my husband and myself as we had to attend a wedding the following day in Edgbaston. We paid £40 and were really happy with our stay. Our room was was a really good size and had both a double and single bed aswell as a large bathroom with walk in shower. The staff were also very friendly and there was ample parking outside.

We booked this hotel to stay to attend an event at the NEC. The Hotel is ideally located for this purpose, although you do have a short walk (5 mins) though an Industrial Estate to get to the NEC. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful. The Hotel is very clean the rooms have everything you need including free Wi-Fi and Television. The rooms are very clean. We did not eat at the Hotel during our two day stay. This is mainly due to the cost. Breakfast at the hotel was £9.50 each and the portions looked a bit small. You can get a large full English Breakfast at the NEC for £ 4.50. The same for an evening meal. First Night we eat at Frank and Bennys (£26 for two) the second night we took the train into Birmingham. The train costs £2 return (off peak) and take 10 mins.

The NEC is linked to Birmingham International Railway Station and the Airport.

We are planning to go back to the NEC soon and will be staying here again.

My son and I stayed here for the Gadget show, fantastic location 5 minute walk to the NEC and free parking, I booked nice and early and paid £66 including breakfast this also includes free wifi never have I stayed in a hotel that offers free wifi.

The room itself was comfortable clean and adequate just what you need for an overnight stay, we used the bar which was fine and also had a vending machine with soft drinks and snacks all at reasonable prices, breakfast was well a presented buffet style and very nice.

Excellent value for money- room, breakfast, free internet, free parking and only 5 minutes from the venue.

£110 for a night and £10 for a breakfast, so for this money i would like so value or at least a smile, i got neither from here. The location is good for the nec, but not for the city centre.
So, checking in was a completely unfriendly experience and couldnt have been less helpfull if the aussy lady tried. The details were wrong but never got sorted as had no intrest at all.
The room is clean and modern, but their is hardley any lighting, quite depressing tbh, but the bathrrom was nice and clean.
Went for dinner, but no tables ( its a very small area for a hotel and its like a canteen not somwhere you would choose to dine ) so again no help or smiles so went out.
Breakfast, well again no smile, grab a table time no offer to help etc. No juice, buffet breakfast which was ok at best.
Check out, 2 staff a peak time, great !!

So for me, this how a hotel should NOT be. Unfreindly, expensive and dose nothing to cater for customers. £120 for this not good value at all.

The hotel is stuck in a far corner of the huge NEC site which caused a problem for us as we arrived by train (and the internal signage and mapping in the NEC is worse that useless), however this is not the fault of the hotel but be prepared.

Then hotel is very clean and pleasant with friendly staff. The room had laminate flooring which is the first time I've seen this used in a hotel. The room is furnished with a nice leather sofa and the bathroom was very nice with glass sinks and a wet room style shower.

Though our room faced the airport, the noise wasn't a problem and did not disturb sleep.

The restaurant choice could be better, it's mainly a 'ding' menu but the steak I had was very nice. The restaurant staff were very nice and friendly.

If I'm unfortunate enough to ever have to come back to the NEC the I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If travelling by train, get directions.

Stayed here for the x factor auditions because of its location for the Birmingham Lg Arena.
Room 212 was lovely and spacious with a double bed, single bed and a sofa bed that was very comfortable used as a sofa. Spotlessly clean and towels were changed daily. Used the restaurant and bar twice the food was lovely with big portions. Got to the hotel at 10pm and had no problem with parking even though the hotel was packed out with Auditionees for the Xfactor.
The only downside was finding the hotel as the sat nav didn't find it but luckily one of the car park attendants of the NEC pointed us in the right direction.
(Turn in at the NEC and follow the road right round almost to the train station and you should see the Ramada lights on the left hand side.)
Had a small problem with the cost as my booking confirmation said one price but the receptionist said we had to pay double, i showed her the confirmation and she sorted it with no problems.
Would definately stay here again had a great time.

Room Tip: Take your Booking form with you!

Bar staff, waiters and cleaning staff were very friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable, clean and warm, so no complaints at all. However, they made a mess of our booking and insisted we had paid for room only (we had booked for breakfast too). After a long discussion and no concession from the desk staff we did eventually manage to find our email confirmation on the laptop. They insisted we had booked via Late Rooms, whereas we knew we had booked direct. When we found the proof we didn't get an apology, which was a shame - sometimes you need to trust your customers, or at least try to be a bit sympathetic.
