“Value for money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We stayed here for a night before our holiday flight with parking for 2 weeks. The reception staff was very helpful and arranged our transfers to the airport. I was pleasantly surprised with the room which had tea and coffee making facilities. A buffet breakfast was included with plenty of choice and as much as you wanted. I have no hesitation in staying here again and would definitely recommend this hotel for excellent value for money.

Found that local transport links not great and was a 30 minute walk to the hotel from Birmingham Internation Station. Not well sign post either which didnt help.
Hotel reception area was good, staff greated me in a friendly manner. No air con in the room so had to sleep with windows open, bed comfortable and managed a good sleep. This would be idea for anyone wishing to travel from Birmingham Airport.

We stayed on a Saturday Night in a family room inclusive of breakfast. Rate was very good value.

The room was clean and adequate and we had a good nights sleep. Bar and Restaurant Area with TV etc was enjoyable.

I would definitely use the hotel again , certainly at the weekend package family rate. Good location. Only negative aspect to us was being required to pay £7 for the Car Park which we were not notified of in advance.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to hear that you found the hotel great value for your family and managed to take advantage of our complimentary breakfast.
I apologise for the confusion over the car parking charge and will just refresh with the team that we need to make people aware of the additional charge.
We do hope we get the chance to welcome you back again soon.

stayed here for 1 night before holiday. Booked room & 8 day parking package for £50!. Check-in was smooth & girl booked us a early morning taxi to BHX (£8), & as very pleasant. Room was very clean and adequate for 1 night stay. We had twin with extra sofa bed for our son family room). We ate at the pub next door and found food to be of good quality and reasonably priced. Next morning taxi arrived as promised on time. Breakfast was available with toast, cereal & juices for early departures (ours was 4.45am). This is included in price, and is a hot breakfast if later check out time. On arrival home found car in good order. We used black cab to get back out of easyness (get directly outside BHX arrival doors) cost was £10. Would definately use this hotel again. PS shuttle is available to mono-rail free of charge if later departure, ours was very early in morning!

My wife has just returned from a two night stay at this hotel whilst attending a Quilt Exhibition at the NEC. She reports that the hotel room was excellent, the staff very friendly, the breakfasts were most acceptable and the free frequent shuttle bus to the nearby NEC was very welcome and totally unexpected.
So thank you to all for taking such good care of her!

Stayed night before we flew to Spain, managed to get it for £59 through APH. A family of 3 with 10 nights parking. We arrived to a lovely big clean hotel with friendly reception staff, very helpful and wanted to help. Room large with comfy beds and a lovely shower. Even though we had to leave at 4am we were still offered a breakfast of toast,tea and fruit juice. A full english is available from 6.30am all included in the price.Definatley stay again.
