Booked this hotel due to proximity to NEC. Read the review after I had booked and was not loking forward to the stay at all. Had booked a non smoking room which was provided. no smell of smoke at all, pillows and bedding clean and fresh, bed one of the most comfortable i have slept in. From someone who has preferred the floor in some more illustrious hotels, this is not faint praise. The breakfasts were cooked to order in the morning, we also dined there both nights. the first night the meal was excellent, however we were disappointed by the steak on the second night. vegetables, salad and puddings were very good. On the first night was offerred fruit instead of the puddings on the menu, fresh apple, grapes and strawberries were very welcome.
The carpets in the dining, lounge and bar areas appeared new. The door to the kitchen was open during mealtimes, this was also clean. Sitting room had leather sofas and chairs, very comfortable, was missing a shade from the light, but as lamps were used this wasn't a geat problem.
Downside, the decor is a bit dated and a bit of fresh paint and paper wouldn't go amiss. was a bit expensive for the standard of hotel, but this may well have been due to what was on at the nec that weekend.
Staff were friendly polite and helpful. Will use this hotel again when at the NEC.
