Really good price with breakfast included. It was clean, staff friendly and helpful and food was acceptable but would have liked bacon to have been on offer at breakfast with the sausages, but otherwise no complaints.

One nighter!

Stayed overnight for an expo and found the hotel comfortable enough. Couple of minor things, but overall a pleasant enough stay. I found the staff friendly and a good laugh - that helps! I believe they 'used' to have a shuttle bus to the exhibition centre - that would have been well received. Quite a good included breakfast.

Good for NEC, but..

Good if you should go to NEC but overpriced for what you get. You pay for location. No free internet. There are other possibilities nearby which are cheaper and better.

Stayed here 1 night whilst attending

Stayed here 1 night whilst attending an NEC exhibition. Hotel is a few minutes, by courtesy mini-bus from the NEC railway station. Hotel serves a good breakfast but no other meals. Excellant pub meals are available in the adjacent premises. Reception has brochures for "take away" meals that may be delivered to the hotel dining room. I will use this hotel for my next NEC attendance.

Provison of free shuttle service

Provison of free shuttle service to NEC was very useful. But cost of parking at the hotel should be stated on the information about the hotel. It was £7 for our two night stay. Still much cheaper than the NEC at £8 a day.
