We got a cheap booking for overnight stay plus parking for our holiday. Thought I'd got a bargain until we turned up to the room and found no heating on. When I called down to ask how to turn it on they said they hadn't heating for quite some time. It was so bizarre and typical of our airport hotel experience we just ended up laughing. How can they let you turn up in winter without informing you you'd be staying somewhere with no heating through the whole place? They did bring us a heater very promptly - it was about the size of a hand towel.
We had to use some bizarre lift up to a floor, go round loads of windy corridors to even find the room and coming back down again took about 15 minutes and caused a minor tiff as we quarelled over which way we should turn next.
Having said all that we had a nice expensive snack in the bar with drinks double normal pub prices and then slept surprisingly well. Transfer to the airport is £2 and a few minutes away and they picked us up very promptly when we landed. Birmingham is a nice airport and after travelling to Gatwick and staying in some VERY rough hotels, this wasn't bad for the money we paid. We did meet another couple who had paid a lot more and I would have been asking for a refund.
