Reviewed 25 February 2012

This couldnt be any closer to the NEC really. I was on crutches at the time, so its needed to be near. I was literally a 5 minute hop. Staff really helpful and friendly. Food was good value and quality. The rooms were tidy, clean. Lovely bathroom. Only bad point - hard bed.

Stayed here sunday night --£115 a room--doesn't include breakfast and from a few months ago doesn't include the car park any more--- now charged at £7 a day so that's now over £140 a room for two if you include breakfast. The hotel didn't charge us for the parking as we had booked months in advance--wasn't made aware that our telephone booking at the time excluded the breakie, didn't ask as we had stayed a few months earlier and it was included as was the parking. Nice clean room but a bit of a small double bed as before but all we wanted was a room to sleep overnight in so the room was more than ok--reception staff very good as before --had a meal in the restaurant Sunday night--shared a nice salad and a main course chicken tikka as a starter--very nice--main course we both had the rib eye steak -main was ok but hers was pretty poor--rubbish cut of meat ---finished with pancakes-- these were disappointing as they were a pretty tasteless stack of pancakes with a small dollop of ice cream and a sweeze of caramel syrup--wine was ok--service pleasant--breakfast was the best part of the stay-- they do do a nice breakfast spread--not a lot but all of it is quite nice--would we stay here again ?? not worth over £140 a night -, not by a long chalk--- i know some shows at the NEC attract premium rates so as it was MODA week is was dearer than it should be--but overall the room and bed are only just ok and no more--these hotels at the NEC do need to start taking a reality check at what they charge and what they give back--if the best value we can get for september is £140 for what we have had at the ramada and another lump for a very average meal than maybe if would make more sense to drive back the same day==

Room Tip: i assume all the rooms are the same--i would make sure what is included in your price now-like break...

If you need a bed to stay overnight then this hotel may offer what you need. The bed size is small compared to other hotels. Bathroom has a walk-in shower. Breakfast is what you would expect on a 2 star hotel. For £40 I was quite happy to spend one night but would not stay longer.

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.
