This hotel has a secure car parking facility, low cost for the package and rooms were ideal for what we wanted. No noise and rooms had everything we needed. Reception were very good. Bar is lovely and breakfast was fantastic - and included in the price.

Easily accessible and close to airport. Clean hotel helpful staff, nice quiet nights sleep, easy overnight stop before early flight. Everything you need at low cost. Breakfast available at 3am, the deal we had included parking and taxi transfers. Highly recommend

Stayed at the hotel whilst visiting Moda. It's a great location near the nec with a little pub next door, although staying at the front side of the hotel can be noisy due to the generation of speed freaks. We were checked in by Chelsea who was fantastic with her customer service, very informative and helpful. The room is ok,...

We always use this hotel for flights from Birmingham and events at the nec. Never had a problem with them. Staff are always helpful. Our first night was booked thru holiday extras with parking for our holiday as well. Then I booked a night when we got back separately as we landed at midnight and I didn't want to drive...

Better than average for a Holiday Inn Express but don't be tempted to take up the stay and fly from Birmingham International. We returned from lovely holiday away to find car window smashed and items stolen. Hotel maintenance guys did cover the damage with plastic bin liner and hotel reception did help contact police but it is not what you...

Stayed here again for the Festival of Quilts, spotlessly clean rooms and bathrooms, good breakfasts, but as always excellent customer service. All staff encountered were helpful and charming, in particular, mention must be made of Remi, Balal and Sharday. Nothing was too much trouble for any of these young persons, they were a credit to their hotel. Remi even tried...

We stayed here for a night while attending a wedding. Easy check-in and conveniently adding parking to our bill to be paid on departure. The room was clean and just what is expected.

We arrived to spend the night before our journey to Ireland. It was a refreshing change to be greeted by a smiling very helpful hotel receptionist called Hannah. All the staff were so helpful in all departments even down to the taxi firm they booked for us to the airport.
