Nice enough hotel. £150 for two nights in a twin room.
The room had lots of mirrors and lighting so that was a nice plus, it was clean and tidy. The beds were a bit on the hard side, but they seem like they are quite new. The bathroom was clean nice bath and shower in there, the water pressure was good. The hot water is absolutely boiling hot, which could be an issue and the warning sticker on the wall above the shower controls was clear with blue writing and the tiles were blue, so it was impossible to read. Our toilet carried on filling after being flushed and this was reported to reception as well as a dangerous hairdryer that was getting so hot that it was melting itself! Both of these issues were sorted by the time we arrived back in our room some hours later after a day out, the hairdryer was a fixed hairdryer, it had not been removed but a replacement hairdryer was left on the dressing table.
There were lamps above the beds that were too low so you couldn't sit up on the bed and watch the TV without bashing your head on the very sharp angular arm that was holding the lampshade. I ended up wrapping a towel around the lamp above my bed so that i didn't accidentally bang my head as my friend did on the one above hers.
THE REST OF THE HOTEL
It would appear that they are giving the hotel a bit of a makeover, it seems it has just been freshly painted and there may have been other work too.
Receptionists were very polite.
Free parking and free wifi.
15mins away from the NEC which is why we were there.
Breakfast is £12 we arrived 15mins before it closed and so everything was a bit dry as it was sitting under the heat lamps which is probably to be expected. Tea and Coffee is served in fresh pots which is very nice. In my opinion its not worth £12 but if you need a quick breakfast before you go away for the day, then its convenient.
