“Ideal for NEC/LG arena and Airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

We stayed here while seeing a concert at the LG arena, travelling by train. Ideal location for the train station and LG Arena - most of it is undercover and you take the sky rail link from arena/station to airport and hotel. All are easily walkable.
Hotel is lovely, very ontemporary style, rooms are a very good size. Bathroom has a large shower and no bath which was fine for us. Toilet is separate and a little cramped when trying to shut the door. We had a cheap deal which included breakfast. Breakfast was the usual hotel buffet style, and very good.
Would definitely stay here again if we needed to use the airport or NEC/LG arena.

Was treated well on checking in and thought the staff very helpful, had a problem with the iron in the room and asked for another one, which arrived very quickly, however that one wasn't much better. Rooms are ok but to keep out the noise you need to shut the door between the bathroom and main room door.

Good Hotel have stayed here on numerous occasions very handy for LG Arena concerts. Very friendly and efficient staff, good quality food, comfortable rooms. Handy for the airport and Birmingham shopping. Good rail link to Birmingham New Street for shops and monorail for LG Arena and NEC very convenient for after concerts much better than having to drive all the way home. Will come back again

We stayed in a family room,we were a family of 2 adults and 2 kids,the room was clean and well presented,the only negative was once the "ëxtra" bedding is out the room is very cramped.Otherwise staff were friendly and helpful.I have stayed there on several occassions while in transit to/from Australia and the hotel and location are the reason i choose to fly via Birmingham and not London.

I was not impressed by the rooms, I never am in the UK but the service was excellent and the food was better than expected.
I was able to receive WIFI in the room, took a few minutes to get them to do so but it worked out.
The location is great, two steps from arrivals and your checking in and another two steps and your in your room.
TIP! Do not take a black cab, the prices are triple that of a private car to city center.

I stayed for a business trip whilst at the NEC. It is well placed for this, however the "sky rail" service they advertise is actually part of the airport opposite so you have to come out of the hotel and cross the road (however this is still much quicker than walking to the NEC!). This does make it very convenient for the NEC, airport and rail station all within 5 mins of the hotel.

The room itself was modern and neat and very quiet (especially considering it is part of an airport complex). The standards of food / service etc were high and the stay overall was mostly pleasurable. I would say however that it is better suited for travelling / business trips rather than a romantic getaway!

What stopped me giving more stars was that I had to evacuate due to a fire alarm 4 times over the 3 days I was there. The way the staff reacted when it went off suggested to me it was quite a regular occurrence as there was no real urgency and the building was declared safe each time minutes after the alarms sounded. The other thing is the cost. It seemed to me that the room and the food was possibly overpriced for what you got, however it did the job I was looking for.
