Staying at the Village Hotel in Shirley for 9 x nights whilst working at the nearby NEC is a mixture of rest and frustration.
Rest is an oasis of; good modern clean rooms, excellent reception staff, leisure pool facilities, bar, Starbucks on site and an ok self-serve hot breakfast.
Frustration is; poor storage/nil drawers in rooms, just one slow lift, self-closing banging room doors during the early hours and early starts by selfish 4th floor guests, plus drunken returns....coupled with a mediocre restaurant in the evening.
Pretty expensive B&B, drinks & meals too.
Such a shame because The Village Hotel does promise so much.
Pretty ironic when all the guests are commuting to work at the NEC Caravan & Motorhome show some 10 miles away eh?
