Pleasant - 3.0 out of 5

Mark K, Hastings, visiting The NEC Birmingham Wed, 16 December 2015

Good location - use local cab firm from station, not black cabs! Good location and friendly staff.

Liked: The room was nice, so no complaints.
Disliked: Poor selection of food, Scrambled egg was horrid; for a chain, the size options were poor and quality poorer.


Disappointing - 2.0 out of 5

Simon, Ludlow Wed, 19 September 2012

Basically will never stay at such a poor 'what can be best described as a glorified Travelodge' again. Poor staff with bad attitudes - felt as though we were an inconvenience to the staff. Room was very basic; beds uncomfortable. Breakfast very, very poor - very substandard for a room we paid 165 for the night! Tables dirty, food selection very poor and quality of food cheap utter crap.

Liked: None.
Disliked: Poor all round.

Room without a view

Liked: Beds comfortable, shower and bathroom arrangement great.Breakfast great choice.
Disliked: The rooms window had a pitched roof directly in front of it which you could not say was a room with a view.Pointless to have a window other than to partially save on lighting costs.Due to the above I was not happy with room that we were allocated.We were never asked if we had enjoyed our stay during check out otherwise I would have mentioned that we were disappointed with our rooms view and expected more for the price paid in particular since you also had to add on site parking charged at 7 per 24 hours.
