After spending more then a few nights a week at this hotel while on a training trip, I was amazed at the quality of the hotel, the high standard of decor and the friendly staff which will do anything to accommodate and help with any inquires!
Looking forward to my next stay in January, absolute fantastic hotel! 5*****

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express as we were attending the Billy Joel concert at the LG Arena (NEC). It has been a while since I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and I have to say that this hotel has changed my mind about the chain. The standard of décor of this hotel, especially the rooms were far beyond expectations. The rooms were stylish, spacious, very comfortable and immaculate. Even the continental breakfast exceeded expectations and we found it more than adequate. It is only 15-20 minutes’ drive to the NEC and since it is on the same road, very straight forward and easy. Comfortable sleep, modern with a warm and friendly staff, we recommended this hotel without hesitation. If we were to attend the NEC again we would certainly stay here again.

Turned up on spec late at night after walking out of a city centre hotel in disgust. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Place is bright, clean and bustling. Room was really good: world's biggest bed with a choice of firm or soft pillows, huge shower and all immaculate. Decent breakfast included in the price.
I would certainly go back to one of these hotels.

This hotel is obviously newly built and is much more modern than the 'standard' Holiday Inn Express.

Rooms are very spacious, decorated in a modern style and far nicer than many 'proper' Holiday Inns I have stayed in! The bathroom too was spacious and had an excellent shower. Bed was comfortable, with a choice of pillows and room had blackout curtains so ensured a good nights sleep. Bedroom and bathroom were both very clean and double glazed windows kept the traffic noise out very effectively.

Breakfast in HI Expresses is always 'free' and is quite standard but features cereals, yoghurts, breads, pastries and a limited hot selection put is perfectly adequate.

Hotel has free WiFi and car parking is £5 per night (£3 of you are a loyalty card member).

If you don't want to eat in the hotel in the evening (it's not that great!!) there is an excellent Indian restaurant next door (The Balti King) which is highly recommended - excellent food, good service and very reasonably priced. There is also an excellent Italian restaurant, La Nonna, a mile or so away towards the NEC.

I stayed here on business recently and found the staff to be incredibly helfull and efficient.
This Holiday Inn Express is located on a busy road and although my room was to the front, i experienced very little disturbance from noise.
If i was being slightly negative, i would say that the free wifi is a dead loss as i couldn't log on anywhere in the hotel let alone my room.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and is adequate but nothing exciting i'm afraid. A few sausages, some beans and what looks like powdered scarmbled egg. It will stop you geing hungry but thats about it.
Overall, the hotel was well presented, clean and comfortable. I would reccommend this hotel for business but not sure about the location for leisure.

Stayed for just one night on business.

A quick efficient check in, and a small query resolved swiftly with the minimum of fuss.

Foyer, bar area, general public areas absolutely nothing to write home about, but you aren't staying in them, are you?

Rooms are comfortable, clean and adequate. All in all, good value for money.

Breakfast is fairly crap - I'd rather pay a couple of quid and be properly served by a waitress.

But next door is a top class Balti House! An excellent value, wonderful bargain indian restaurant.

If you are on a tight budget - use this place!!!
