“Somewhere to lay your head”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2012

Staff were excellent from beginning to end of stay very attentive.
Rooms had paper thin walls and if you are unlucky and get a snorer in the next room or revellers across the hall your in for a rough nights sleep. That said the noise of the aeoplanes was minimal compared to the buzzer on reception.
Breakfast was good although some items were out such as milk when arrived.
Great location for the LG Arena.

The wife and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting the NEC. It was a very good price and included breakfast and parking. It was easy to find and there was plenty of parking. I found the hotel to be more of an up market bed and breakfast really. Room was basic but clean and comfortable and had the usual amenities including tea and coffee etc. This is a family run establishment and the owners we met were friendly enough and very helpful. We had a view of the airport from our room, the hotel being about 400m from the runway, so I ended up watching the planes. It was great. Hotel is about a mile from the airport, rail station, NEC etc. Believe a bus runs past the hotel about every twenty minutes. They might even be able to arrange pick up or drop off for you. It was very good for the price we paid. On point of note, if you want a room with a view if the airport then phone them and book as they tend to go very quickly.

We needed a comfortable double room close to Birmingham airport for 1 night at the end of a 5 week "holiday" that was beset with illness and annoyances. This small, family run hotel was a welcome relief. We didn't want the various facilities available at the larger airport hotels - just something quiet, warm, clean and welcoming - and, almost by accident, we found it at the Tri Star. And you really do have to find it, as it is unobtrusively tucked away and apparently not well known to taxi drivers. Even our Satnav had some difficulty. But it was certainly worth finding, because it was exactly what we wanted. Lovely, tremendously helpful people running the place, everything neat and clean, decent food at reasonable prices, lots of free parking and free Wifi. Ok, it's situated at the side of a very busy road, but our ground floor room faced towards it and was amazingly quiet. No frills, but comfortable and excellent value for money.

I stayed at Tri-Star recently, the night before clients flew into BHX, and was pleased with its very close proximity to the airport, total cleanliness throughout, ultra-friendly and accommodating staff, free wifi hookup, great room with nice bathroom and free parking. The NEC is just a few miles away, as well, so the hotel's location is spot on for either, plus a train ride to downtown, from the airport station, is just five minutes from the hotel. I recommend this nice, small, family-run hotel.

I stayed here in Feb 2009 when I became to ill to drive. I should have ended up in Leicester this night

My room was clean and comfortable, and not noisy despite being right next to BHX. I was also very glad it was out of season and they were not full.

In the morning I had recovered sufficiently to eat what I recall was a good hearty breakfast, and the hotel only let me back on the road later in the day when feeling much better, as opposed to chucking me out by midday.

Of course the price wasn't of paramount importance to me under the circumstances but it wasn't bank-breaking.

I will always remember this kind hospitality that the Tri Star hotel provided and would consider it if ever flying from BHX (Rare though as I have MAN and LHR both at my disposal!)
