what makes this hotel is the staff. This is a standard holiday inn express, of which I have stayed at many, but this site is set apart from the others, by the friendly, helpful staff.

We stayed one night at this hotel. Access to the hotel from the M6 is very easy. As was travel from the hotel to the NEC which took about 15 mins. There is a dual carriageway right outside the hotel but the noise from this is fairly minimal. However, it appears the flight path from the airport is directly overhead... More

Picked this hotel on the fact it had free parking and breakfast included something a lot of Birmingham hotels add on top of the room price!! We checked in at 8.40pm and was greeted by friendly staff.

No frills hotel, but nice room and bathroom. A little bit worn round the edges, but clean and ideal if you don't want to fork out for the hotels closer to Birmingham Airport. The breakfast us included and is a self service affair with croissants, toast and cereal or hot items. Don't expect gourmet, but great as a freebie. Functional... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Birmingham. The only positive thing about the hotel was they had free parking. We checked in, went to our room and it was really dingy and run down. There were obvious stains all over the carpet. It is a pet friendly hotel, but we could hear a dog barking... More

I stay in many HIX and this is a really nice one. Friendly staff and a fresh look & feel to the communal areas. Pub next door and the HIX has a better breakfast than the normal standard - same items just better quality & nice coffee - will definitely be back

Been in this hotel while having to go through Construction Week at the NEC. It's not far and the position is not bad, and it was cheaper than others.
