“Value for money no frills stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

I had a business meeting very close to the NEC, the hotel offered a great rate and was very clean and tidy, staff particularly helpful, the lady on check out was extremely so. I had noticed that there was a charge for parking but it did not apply as there was nothing on at the NEC. Breakfast was buffet and offered a good selection for the price.

Finding it on the NEC site was a bit of challenge as it was at the end away from the main entrance.

I was booked into Ramanda Encore prior a conference at NEC. The bright modern building had a nice feel about it and entering my room overlooking a busy road I thought the traffic would die down at night.. no such luck!

Lorries turned into the industrial estate all through the night I was still awake at 0330! Bleary eyed at 0700 I looked at the windows which had gaffa tape all round the edges.

Surely a four year old hotel can have better soundproofing than this?

On the positive side the room was a good size the bed was comfortable with good pillows and the shower was very hot and powerful. The food was good as was the service (thank you Daniel)

If you are staying here it is a good base for the NEC but ask for a rom facing the car park (away from the road!)

Thank you for your review, I will be nominating Daniel for our monthly star award following your excellent feedback regarding his customer service.

I recommend that during any future stays with us you request a car park side room as these are a lot quieter. It is the very close proximity to the airport that is an attraction although this does bring some noise level as the areas roads never sleep.

First of all it shares the same postcode as the NEC so the man on the gate there gives you a map for directions 6 islands away.
The car parking is £7.50 per night.
The room looked clean but in time the only good thing about it was the wet room shower.
The double bed was rock hard and the pillows too soft so it felt like you were lying flat on a board.
The quilt was clean but very thin.
There was a hairdryer but no plug by the mirror.
No ventilation in the bathroom.
Only two mugs on the tea tray for a three person booking.
The meal in the restaurant for both evening and breakfast was bland and plastic.
The evening meal arrived literally within 10 minutes of ordering. :/
My daughter woke at 4am with sickness which lasted 4 hours so we could not continue to the airport and had to return home. :(

Thank you for writing your review on our hotel. All feedback is very much appreciated regarding our room and restaurant standards. I sincerely hope your daughter has recovered fully from her recent sickness.

The satnav codes do differ from device to device, hence why we do supply two on our website. It is very welcome that the NEC gate staff do redirect our guests the short journey to our hotel efficiently.

We do have varying feedback regarding the bed comfort as it is always a very personal preference to the softness/hardness of any mattress/pillow.

Thank you again for your taking the time to share your experience

Thank you for your review, they are always very appreciated by the team here. We would have used our dedicated taxi firm for your outgoing journey but as you can appreciate there are very many taxis operating from Birmingham Airport and prices do differ. If you visit us again we can recommend a taxi company and supply you with their telephone number for your return journey.

Stayed here for 1 Night and the room was comfortable and breakfast next morning was acceptable for the price I paid. It was clean and convenient with good wi-fi and shower. Check in was quick and efficient. I would stay here again.

I stayed here for one night as I had an early flight next morning. The room was compact, comfortable and clean with everything provided for an enjoyable stay. On checking in the reception staff made me fell very welcome and all staff were friendly and helpful. The location for the airport is excellent - just a five mins (maximum) walk to the airport terminal. I thought this hotel was real value for money and will definitely be staying again in the future.

Have recently had a one night stay here for an event at the lg arena.I couldn't believe how close it was to the arena,just a quick walk away,would definitely stay here again for future events.On arrival the staff were friendly and this went for all of them,reception to bar staff.The room was comfortable and clean,and had a good sleep.The hotel bar stays open until whenever and even did pizzas and sandwiches late at night and the prices were reasonable,overall very satisfied with my stay,and for £42 for the night absolute bargain.
