Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bettyboop53 excellent breakfast
The room was comfortable and clean.
The breakfast gave a great choice of food.
The cooked breakast was very good and more importantly it was hot.
We booked at a great price and it was very good value for money.
We were attending the NEC and it was only a couple of miles away.We didn't use the shuttle provided by the hotel as I am disabled and need to park near the NEC to be able to access items from my car during the day.
Parking back at the hotel late at night was a problem though as other guests had taken the disabled spaces
I will ensure I speak to reception next time I visit to ensure a disabled space will be available.
Overall a comfortable and pleasant stay

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Casino Guy Not good for me
While the room and bathroom were acceptable, the service was really poor. From reception who did not have the pricing right and try'd to blame me, promised to sort it to discover that it was not sorted and on leaving the original concerns were still giving issue.
The food was not great and you had to wait an age to get served at all. Sent my dinner back.
Staff were pleasant enough but not a good stay for me.

Love the concept of this & have used before. Would have liked shuttle bus to run more frequently ( missed the station one by 5 mins so had to sit for 55 mins & on return journey service had ended because of time of flight so had to take a taxi )
Lovely executive room - very nice décor & housekeeping very courteous and welcoming.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JamesBritz Good service
During my stay the service was what I would normally expect from a hotel.
What stood out was the personal inter-action between the staff and the patrons. Two more than others. Not sure of the spelling, Voidsec, the barman, but particularly Annabel. Always asking how the days was, and good friendly chat, way above what is the norm in hotels around the world.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not-happy-1 Good hotel and room ruined by poor service from staff
I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and generally everything is fine - On this occasion however my stay was disappointing due to a lack of available room service and the poor attitude of the night staff - Also on check in and check out, Priority Club check in was not manned resulting in delays

No parking, no help with parking or luggage. Very noisey throughout night, doors banging and cleaners in the morning.
No juice at breakfast, it had finished and wasn't replaced, i wasn't asked about hot drinks and table had been used.

Eventually I cancelled the food.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richard06 Fine for me
I've decided to write this having seen some rather negative reviews. The hotel was very busy with delegates from a big NEC event, - including me. At reception staff were polite and friendly and recognised my Platinum Elite status. My room was modern, well equipped and spotless. I just ate in the bar and the food was fine and the staff behind the bar and the waiters were friendly and prompt.
I made use of the shuttle to the station/NEC which was always on time and on each occasion had a courteous driver. There is a small but perfectly adequate gym and a lovely pool. In short, everything you would expect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by young at heart Great nights sleep
Stayed at the Holiday Inn Birmingham before our flight to Florida. Shuttle from the rail station to the hotel was prompt. Checkin was very easy and efficient. Used the bar for a snack in the evening. The service was quick and the food excellent. We had a good nights sleep in very comfortable beds. After a really good breakfast we were on our way for our flights. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an overnight stay near the airport.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beanie999 Poor food service - room was ok
We purchased an overnight stay inc. breakfast prior to a 10hr flight for holiday.
On arrival were advised breakfast was served later on a weekend (after 7am which was our check in time) :-( (no cooked breakfast for us which we'd paid for). Would like this airport hotel to consider serving standard breakfast hours all week.
Completed the Continental breakfast selection (for 3 people) only to have 1 turn up with none of the items we had chosen! All in all not a great experience.
Rooms were very hot and temperature controls would not go lower than 18 degrees. There was also a lot of noise from the corridor and in the room above us.
Dinner service in the restaurant was very poor too with bad communication between staff - not a great stay and next time I think we'll just drive in the morning and save a couple of hundred pounds!

Good for the Airport and a reasonable price. Only bad point is that i did not enjoy the evening bar food. However after expressing that i was not happy with the food the staff made a great effort to resolve and gave me a free beer. Very polite!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Totally let down at the start of my holiday
I booked to rooms and requested adjoining on the booking. knowing this is so strikes difficult I emailed to ensure it was sorted AND phoned reception who confirmed they had sorted. I arrived on the evening at 6pm ish with a tired baby and infant to be told they didn't have adjoining. Also the cot didn't arrive for 45 mins so baby was not able to sleep as planned. We had to be up at 430am for flight and wife and I had to split rooms to look after me.

Mattress too soft
I have stayed in many holiday inn / express by holiday inn and i cannot not remember anyone having such a soft and very uncomfortable bed.
It's a good thing we are not on a long haul flight
I definitely will not be staying at this particular one again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by irvy Airport transfer service
When we stayed here 2 years ago the transfer was excellent & the hotel organised a private taxi service to take us direct to the airport.. This time , however , it was totally different & it was only a shuttle bus to take us to the railway station & then a monorail to the airport. With 7 suitcases & 2 children, this was not acceptable & instead we ourselves arranged 2 private taxis at our own cost. Although I am a gold member of Holiday Inns, I will not be staying at this particular hotel EVER again,

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Blindside very poor food and service
Having stopped at this hotel a week earlier, I had hoped the experience had improved. rooms and front office all good but restaurant asked me to come back in 20 mins or go to the bar and order. There were plenty of empty seats but something was wrong in the kitchen.
My bar meal was steak and ale pie - which turned out to be a very liquid stew with a couple of onions and very little meat, pie topping was a flaky pastry top that was served separate

Hotel on the whole is very good. You get what you expect. Once again no hot water in the morning due to boiler. I accept this can happen but as a regular visitor this is not a one off!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Neil23 Let down by poor housekeeping staff
Comfortable room, slept well. After a night out in the city centre, I returned about 3am. Booked a late checkout til 2pm and put the do not disturb sign on. At lunch time the housekeeping staff kept knocking on the door and woke me up til I answered. She said that she could see Do Not Disturb the sign was on the door but wanted to know what time I was leaving as "reception staff do not tell her".
Do not disturb should mean exactly that.

When i arrived at the Holiday Inn i was greeted very nicely by staff and made sure i knew where everything was etc. They have a lovely pool well worth a visit. The rooms were clean and comfortable and well presented with a larger than average TV. There was a good selection of meals to choose from and a large choice at breakfast. Had a lovely stay would come again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Janix not that good - wrong place - too expensive for quality
Website do not mention breakfast is NOT included at charged at over 10-11 PST.
Hotel name does don't relate to an airport hotel location. You must take a taxi at 11 PST. if late arrival, if day you need to take a shuttle train first to be picked-up. not mentioned on website.
Hotel is on other side of airport with long freeway like drive.
Hotel H. Express NEC is much nearer airport and newer and cheaper less 10 PST and Breakfast is included and No taxi is really needed or same.
When shuttle bus delivery your back to Airport it is not to airport but to a highway rail train shuttle.
Not mentioned on website.
Absolutely not recommended by handicapped ( not mention on website )
Hotel is worn down. Old Hotel Old furniture. Old design.
Nice people at the desk though with good personal service
