“Midweek Concert Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Booked a midweek value overnight stay as we were attending a concert at the LG Arena and paying a visit to Villa Park.Checking in was quick and easy and found our room to be clean and well equipped. Location is excellent for both NEC and airport. We also took advantage of the two evening meals for £30 deal and the food was excellent. On site parking also a bonus. If I'm being honest I probably would not pay the full price but for the price we paid I was very happy.

We stayed here to see Elbow play at the LG Arena. The hotel is comfortable and clean and comparatively good value for the area. It's about a 15 minute stroll to the Arena doors from the hotel.
We had a good nights sleep and the breakfast was decent. The biggest drawback are the parking charges which I feel should be waived for guests.
I will most probably stay here again when visiting the LG Arena.

Nice room , food and staff.
Downside was car parking £7.50 per day. How do get there if you don't come by car.
Not made clear when booking. Having driven through a barrier to enter carpark, we had no choice but had to pay, (£52 50 per week)

We have a high proportion of our guests staying due to the proximity of Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International Railway Station.

We charge a £7.50 car parking charge which is the best value of all the NEC hotels who all charge a fee for parking.

We are pleased you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us and hope this does not deter you from staying in the future

Enjoyed overnight stay for concert at LG arena & shopping day via train. Paid to park for overnight stay and left car at hotel while taking train into Birmingham New Street - very convenient.
Restaurant staff very helpful & friendly.

Very close to the railway station. Nice and clean single room. Tasty breakfast, but could have been more to choose from. Also, the receptionists could have smiled a little more, and been more efficient, because I had to wait longer than necessary when checking in. Unfortunately no fitness centre

Overall it was ok. Rooms average with small TV, low bed and basic facilities. Was all you needed for an over night stay tho. Breakfast and restaurant was very nice as were the staff. Reception upon arrival was basic and we were very angry that we were charged £7.50 to park the car on the car park which was on an industrial area. Really NOT happy as we were not made aware of this when booking and we had no choice. Just so pleased we got this booking through Groupon and didn't pay full price of £112 or we would of been devastated... CAR PARK CHARGE BIG ISSUE FOR US - NOT HAPPY!!!

I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay with us through the groupon promotion.

We do post the car park charge on all websites that we are affiliated with. Given the proximity to the airport and NEC all hotels in the area do charge this fee and we are the best value. We have the price posted prior to you entering the car park to allow you to make the decision to park elsewhere before you enter.

I hope this does not deter you from staying with us in the future and look forward to welcoming you on your return.
