“Convenient for NEC”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We were exhibiting at the Spring Fair and stayed at this hotel. Extremely convenient as from the back of the hall to the hotel was about 5 minutes walk!
The rooms are confortable and well equiped. With very friendly staff in both reception and restaurant.
The food in the restaurant is very average but expensive for the quality. One night we were served two burnt pizza.
We stayed there for several nights and the menu is the same all the time. A daily special would give a little variety.

I really dislike liquid soap dispenser in hotel rooms and this hotel has them.

Had a comfortable and relaxing overnight stay, before flying to Sydney. Just a few minutes walk to 'free' monorail direct to Airport. Fantastic value at just £59.00 including 15 days car parking at Hotel. Would recommend to anyone flying from the airport or visiting the NEC

We stayed here to visit Miniatura at the NEC. It's a good hotel, within easy walking distance of the NEC. We had a comfortable and pleasant stay and would recommend it to anyone visiting the NEC for flying from the airport.

Used this hotel for two nights - either side of a holiday, and took advantage of the parking with it. Both rooms were noisy, pokey and hot (in the middle of winter!). Rooms come with one poor pillow each, and you have to ring (and wait 20 minutes) for a second one.

The restaurant left us waiting for 40 minutes for a bread and oil starter, and another 30 minutes before the main course. The general manager had, apparently, had the idea that it would be ok for a tabletennis Christmas party to play in the restaurant/bar area and our meal was accompanied by the tap tap of the game, and the shouting from the players.

The one redeeming feature was the restaurant manager, who responded to my complaint very effectively - all credit to him.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back.

Stayed here overnight on business. Very simple rooms with minimal furniture, the wardrobe was hooks on the wall! Bed was comfortable but room too basic. Evening bar / breakfast room had the appearence and layout of a "works canteen" though the food was quite pleasent. Ok for a one night stay for business or for the airport, but wouldn't stay any longer.
Watch out for the additional parking charges!

My wife & I stayed at the Ramada on the 28th December 2012 as we had an early flight out of Birmingham airport the following morning. We found this hotel perfect for the overnight stay prior to flying, and the food was good there too.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who has a morning flight out of Birmingham as you avoid the traffic chaos & stress of actually getting to the airport on the day of travelling.

I stayed at the Ramada on the 21st December with my two young sons, aged 4 and 7, as I had a flight out of Birmingham airport the morning after. Due to circumstances at the airport I missed my flight that day and had no qualms whatsoever about going back and staying at this hotel for another night. It is literally a 5 minute walk with your luggage to the train station, Birmingham International, which has a monorail link (which my boys loved) direct to the departures at the airport - easy.
For the price I paid for a room, @£60, you really couldnt complain about this place, conversely, I would say its better than more expensive places I've stayed due to the following:

Location - great location for the airport, taxi just not needed unless you are much older or infirm and dont want to wheel your luggage any distance

Cleanliness - our room was spotless

Room - functional but spacious enough for us, beds comfortable, plenty of pillows, great shower, tv & tea making facilities

Most Importantly, the Staff - I found everyone at the hotel very polite, accomodating and really just a very helpful & pleasant bunch. I think I managed a quick few words with nearly all of them who were genrally interested in the welfare of the two boys & where we were going for Xmas. They made my stay a pleasant one and just want to add that they are a credit to their city.
