We stayed at the Hampton for two nights to visit Grand Designs at the NEC. The location is excellent just a few minutes walk to Star City which is over the road and which has a number of restaurants, cinema, casino, bowling etc. Also just off the M6 near Spaghetti junction, around 10 minutes drive to Birmingham City Centre and about 15 minutes to the NEC. Plenty of car parking on site.
The hotel is clean and modern. The room we had was large and had a huge bed. Good powerful shower and dispensers on the wall for shampoo, soap etc which were full. You get free breakfast which was taken in the cafe/bar area on the ground floor and as well as toast, pastries, muffins, cereals, yoghurts there was also some hot food available which consisted of bacon, scrambled eggs, beans and mini hash browns. You also get free wifi in the room and there was also wired internet in the room which I think was also free. There is also a small fitness room which we didn't use this on this occasion.
In conclusion for a little over £45 a night for two of us on the Alpharooms rate it was great value and would be more than happy to stay here again in the future.
