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.

Liked: Comfy bed and quiet room which I had requested
Disliked: Had to request for someone to come and clean the toilet as it was unusable. This was done immediately to their credit. Cleaning not that good in rest of room, dust on bed, marks on duvet cover, stains on sofa bed cushion.
