“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Nice clean place, excellent value for money and brilliant location. Rooms nicely decorated, lovely hot breakfast servced. We arrived just gone midnight and were very tired but the reception staff was extremely efficient and friendly. Did a swift check-in without pressuring for anything and within minutes we were in our room. Room was nicely decorated offering excellent value for money. Adjacent underground carpark meant we just popped out of the car and walked into the hotel. Well impressed by the service.

We needed place to rest after going to China Town in Birmingham City Centre

This HIE was without doubt the best we have stayed in over years - it was immaculately clean and the room was outstanding - great location at just £5 for taxi into city centre. Excellent staff very attentive and polite always.

Room Tip: Spend a few mins working out the Air con...trust us it will help

Stayed here with friends as it was close to nec. Was a great choice as it was really easy to get there and back. Room had everything you need although bed was not very comfy. Would definitely use this hotel again if we go to any more gigs at nec as its a good value option. Breakfast could be better and served a bit later!

We opted to stay overnight as we had travelled down from North Yorkshire to see Elbow at the NIA. Arrived at hotel around 4:00pm and were checked in quickly by friendly staff. Room (twin) was fine, if a little cold and the hot air heating never did really get it properly warm. Each single bed had a very small duvet for the size of the bed which let in the draughts during the night! However, room very comfortable, clean and tidy with a good sized modern bathroom. Breakfast was a continential style help yourself affair, with some additional hot food. Not the best we've had, but it did. Car parking is good - two car parks, both secure and you're given a code to get out. All in all, good decision not to spend 2 hours driving home after a gig and would highly recommend for this kind of stop over and business.

Used this as a base while I was an exhibitor at the nearby NEC. Hotel is clean, very tidy, and safe, with helpful and cheery staff members. Room had plenty of space for wheeling myself around in my wheelchair.

Only problem proved to be the disabled parking, where those not displaying badges either tried taking advantage or showed complete disregard to the system. It's all very well providing the spaces, but if no-one watches who parks in them, then it is not a help at all to those who genuinely needed to use it. At one point there was a Porsche taking the space reserved for TWO disabled cars, not the sort of thing you should expect in this modern, caring society!

Stayed her for one night after a late evening flight and due to have a meeting in Birmingham the following day. Good safe parking and friendly staff. Usual Holiday Inn Express accommodation, but one of the modern latest hotels in the chain.

Would recommend for both business in southern areas of Birmingham and airport. Looked like a good selection of local restaurants and pubs for eating, etc.

A couple of weekends ago I and my partner stopped at this hotel. From the reviews we had read on here we thought it would be a good place to stop and it also fitted into our budget per night. After a hectic day Christmas shopping in Birmingham itself we wanted to get settled into the hotel straight away. When we arrived and had parked in the hotel car park we went to reception were we quickly checked in and were told what number our room was and how to get there. On arrival in the room it looked very modern and stylish, especially for the price. The bathrooms in the hotel all seem to be smart. I know this is a new hotel but for the price you pay, you don't expect a smart room as you get at this hotel.

Had no issues during the night from roadside noise or other occupants in the hotel. And also had no issues with the comfort of the beds etc as we found them to be very comfy and had a good nights sleep.

In the morning we ventured down for breakfast and there was a wide range of cereals on offer alongside toast, croissants, fruit and yoghurts. There was also a hot selection of sausages, scrambled egg and beans. For the hot food you had to be quick as it was gone in a flash and the person working was forever going backwards and forwards topping up the empty dishes. We had a good breakfast and then returned to our room to gather our belongings and then checked out.

Little note for anyone thinking of stopping at the hotel.. There aren't many places to eat nearby unless you go into Birmingham itself. There are a few takeaways nearby but that is about it. I would suggest eating in the hotel restaurant which has a small selection of meals such as fish and chips, curry etc or travel for about 5 minutes and find a supermarket which we did and buy some bits from there.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be ok but if you are looking for a midweek stop, I would suggest to ask for...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such an informative review of our hotel. It is feedback like this that really helps us improve the service we offer to our guests. Our breakfast is always something we're working to improve and we understand that, during periods of higher demand, the hot food can go very quickly. We will be taking these comments on-board to help us try and work arounds this. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
