If you are attending the NEC this is obviously a very convenient place to stay. The hotel is clean, staff are polite and the rooms pleasant and more than adequate for a short stay. This place is not cheap however and I would not consider it great value for money. There is little atmosphere and I would consider it a straight forward conference hotel.
We ate in the main restaurant which had a reasonble menu the food was somewhat unimaginitive and not what I would expect for the price the only bright spot was a good red wine for £22 !
