Reviewed 22 December 2012

Having to go to Solihull for some family stuff, found this thru Laterooms.com, used it on the 18th and 20th of December, very clean, efficient check in, and staff very friendly, but, the scrambled eggs for breakfast where way, way over cooked

Thank you for leaving a review of our hotel. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the scrambled egg can dry up under the hot lamp if not eaten quickly but the kitchen do try their best to change this as frequently as possible. We're always looking for feedback to help us improve our service so we will glady take this on board. Thanks again!

Stopped for one night, found hotel was really nice, rooms are great and very modern, bathroom was superb.

Bar was ok, but limited food on the menu.

Breakfast was nice and hot and plenty of choice

Not a lot around the hotel, but next door to a shop and a decent Indian restaurant. Don't go in the old bill and bull pub, unless like sitting amongst doped up local kids and strange old men!!!! Avoid like the plague!!!
If your there for one night it's great and good access to Birmingham and the airport, but use the underground car park.

My partner and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Birmingham South during the Clothes Show Live at the NEC.
The Hotel is a great base for both the NEC and Birmingham City Centre situated about a ten minute drive from either location.
Inside the Hotel is modern and stylish, very clean and as the building itself is small it is easy to find everything that you need ie; restaurant, lifts etc
The staff at Reception were both very friendly and attentive during check in, recommending travel routes to the NEC and offering advice on bus times etc. I genuinly felt as though the team were interested in us as guests without being intrusive.
Breakfast was included in the room rate which was a welcome surprise. Small selection of hot items, and all the usual continental choices you would expect. It was all self service so we were able to have as much as we liked (which we did!)
Overall we had a great stay at this Hotel and despite our initial misgivings on location found it an ideal base to travel between the two areas of the city - highly recommend staying here.....

Room Tip: You should be ok at this Hotel rooms wise, all are modern, stylish and are quite obviously newly bui...

This hotel is new, clean and large rooms. I was really impressed especially I got the room for under £40. There is a secure car park within the complex. I was extremely pleased. Also if you walk out of the hotel and got to the right, there is a great indian restaurant. Reasonably priced and great food.

Spent another great night at the holiday inn. Went to staff party and stayed rather than getting taxi home. Room brilliant clean tidy and bed comfortable. Staff polite and helpful, breakfast ok. Special thanks to Daniel and and Katy who located my lost!!!purse and manager Zoe who ensured we were all happy with services. Not located in the better ares of Birmingham but parked car in secure parking and can't fault anything . Well done in time of recession great to find a hidden gem

Great hotel and fab location for Solihull, Birmingham city centre, the airport, NEC and M6/M42 but for heavens sake, DO NOT PARK YOUR CAR IN THE SURROUNDING ROADS!

One of the people in my party didn't park it in the hotel car park and for some reason thought it would be a good idea to park in the road next to the hotel, Kathleen Road, he came back the next morning to find his car keyed from one end to the other and a note left on the window screen!! Apparently, the hotel has been contacted by residents from this road asking them to inform guests not to park in this road as parking is extremely limited for residents as it is.

You have been warned! :-/

Thank you for leaving a review of our hotel. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and it is unfortunate that a member of your party received damage to their car due to parking it in a nearby road. We do provide on-site secure car parking for a small charge, but for guests whos vehicle exceeds the height restriction, or who choose not to use our car park, are advised to park in neary Geraldine Road (not Kathleen Road), as there is space next to the hotel that isn't directly used by residents. Once again thank you for your comments and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

First thing about this hotel is the elavator it is crazy slow. I would use stairs but use a wheelchair so a bit difficult.

The room was an accessible with shower which I hate as I prefer a bath. The room was nice and big though. Why was it at the end of the corridor I wonder. I had to push my wheelchair all the way through the thick carpet. Don't understand why they put the room al the way at the end.

Bed was a big let down it reminded me of the cheap Ibis beds with matress on what felt like a hard wooden base. The shower was at its highest setting was a bit of a challenge to get it down to a managagable height. Looks like they don't expect a wheelchair user to use the accessible room.

First morning I left room and towels had been left at door so I had to move them as I use a wheelchair and can't step over them. Then came back that evening the room had not been cleaned. I suppose a couple of towels dumped at room door constitutes cleaning the room here.

Still a decent new hotel with a computer at reception. This you may need as the free wifi I got 56kps download just about dial up speed.

The car park is nice as its covered but you have to pay for it but I would say it is worth it.

Room Tip: Get a low floor as it takes a long time to get to high floors in lift.
