Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scorer24 Good hotel, very convenient for NEC
Good hotel, very convenient for NEC, within walking distance, just have to walk along the grass (no pavement) but saves you a few pounds on taxis
The only small issue we had was the noise from the lorries in the morning picking and dropping off the laundry service for the hotel, maybe a covered area would have been a better idea rather than rattling round the hotel

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by travellingfamily4 1 Room 2 Different People Booked Into It
Someone else was already in our room when we opened the door!!!
The manager did apologise but that is something that should not happen given we are priority club. Also the car park was full and the staff advised us to park in the next door pub, despite the signs in the pub car park saying we could get fined. Room ok but very small compared to other hotels in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cufc1210 Worth it for the price
An above average hotel for the price, room was ok but even though the pillows were labelled soft and firm they all felt soft ended up using 4 to get to sleep.
staff were very proffesional and very friendly and having internet access in the room was a big thumbs up.
Breakfast was good but no bacon ????, staff were very attentive in fact so good they kept clearing away my coffee whenever i left the table.(just when it was getting to the right temperature)
I would use thishotel again for an overnight stay and having a pub next door has its benefits

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dixoncs Bed was mistaken for a Big fat marshmallow/ fluffy cloud
Booked an overnight stay and 7 days parking via Holiday extras website. Everything went like clockwork from booking in to checking out and our taxi transfers both outward and on our return were comfortable and efficient. I must mention that the bed was the most comfortable bed ever! It really was heaven. would recommend 100% and will be using again in the future [ we usually use the crowne plaza but not any more]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craggle Very nice stay
Great hotel within close proximity to the NEC.
Very friendly staff, very clean hotel, and great bar area with a very good breakfast too.
Nice and quiet at night so a good nights sleep was easy. Recommended hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ormy999 Worst night sleep ever!
The fan in the bathroom was broken and was activating every 40 mins exactly. Sounded like a broken tumble dryer in the bathroom. No sleep at all with a very important day to attend the following. Staff refunded my car parking as a "token of good will"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Quiet and Comfortable
Quiet and comfortable hotel. It would be dificult to find a better hotel anywhere, and it sits right where we want it. If / when we return to NEC that is where we want to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 overnight stay with 7 days parking
Overall the visit was good. The downside was having to ride around for parking which was not available, vehicles were parked everywhere and we did not want to leave our car in the roadside where it could have been damaged.
Also the restaurant was clean but not a really relaxing area. Food choices and quality disappointing

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luckypill A Really Good Hotel
Really enjoyed our stay, the hotel and room were very clean, the staff were superb and breakfast was very good, great that it is included.
We will definitely stay again when we are at the NEC.
The only thing I would change is the soft drinks at the bar were very expensive.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to the NEC.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Putters Clean comfortable room and pleasant staff
Staff were very pleasant and the room was clean and perfect for the job but the breakfasts were poor - the standard that you would get at a motorway service station. The one evening meal that we had was of the same standard. After the first night we ate out for the rest of our stay.
Over all the hotel is fine but the breakfast needs improving.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JWJulie Great value, clean and smart, friendly staff
Stayed there for a 3 day convention, staff couldn't do enough for us absolute pleasure to stay. Lovely selection for breakfast (tho did run out of some options toward the end of the Monday morning). Only downside was thin mattress on sofa bed but we asked for an extra quilt and slept on top of it which helped. Sofa bed really suits one person rather than two. Everything else was great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JW30 Food
Staff were generally courteous and helpful.
Breakfast was fine but the evening meal was expensive for what was on offer and surprisingly the cost for the meal for my 5 and 10 year old (who only had some chips and rice and a spoonful of curry) was the same as for an adult. It was only when I questioned this that the staff member at the till reduced the cost of the meal for the children. Beside this little annoyance, the hotel was fine for our purpose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chatterpad Pleasant Birthday surprise & excellent staff
We checked in and the staff accidentally booked us into a double as opposed to a family room. I highlighted that to the staff and that was changed immediately and when my son and I went to get the card key (I was offered to bring it up to us), my son was pleasantly surprised as there was a birthday card and a box of Thornton's chocolate waiting for him (He had mentioned that he has just turned into a teenager as the staff enquired about his big blue birthday badge).
It's not often that happens in today's commercial world. Overall, the stay was nice and enjoyable in a clean friendly environment.
The only negative would be the £7 charged for parking!

We stayed for 3 days as we were attending a convention and I could not applaud this hotel and it's staff more. Very friendly staff, very clean and warm hotel and a great breakfast. Look forward to staying again soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WKS Paul Great location and excellent service
Stayed here for IBSA Convention at the LG Arena for three nights. I booked three rooms and we had a wonderful time and stay. There were over 11,000 at the LG Arena so the hotel was full and Holiday Inn Expressed coped very well. The staff did not appear to be under pressure. Well done to all the staff and those behind the scene and the house keepers who we did not see but saw and benefitted from their hard work. WELL DONE Holiday Inn Express and Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nosuchname Good value with excellent service
We stayed at this hotel on the nights of the 15th and 16th August 2014. Myself , wife and 6 year old grandson. Very good value with
breakfast which is included in the price.
Staff very professional and polite. Rooms very clean and WiFi was
available with no fuss. The only moan I could have is the £7 a night
charge for parking. £5 would be enough !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin Hood 2 Holiday Inn Express NEC
What a superb place to stay. We needed overnight accommodation for an early morning flight. The H I Express was ideal in every way. Staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Very early breakfast was great as we did not expect to have such a great choice so early in the morning.
Would recommend without reservation and will certainly use this venue again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The White Hat Rear rooms are quieter
The location is apt for those wishing to visit the NEC or are travelling via the Midland's airport. The rooms are typical of a HI Express and as they have high traffic always look as though they could do with a paint touch up. The hotel has a limited choice of television channels so children will not be entertained. The adjacent pub, 'The Little Owl' serves a reasonable selection of keg ales. The food at the Owl is acceptable and reasonably priced apart from the 'side salad' as a lettuce leaf, one quarter of a tomato, two shavings of a section of cucumber and a sprinkling of diced onion did not meet expectations or the £2.50 price. The pub did not have muzak playing which is a definite plus. Returning to your room, ask for the top floor and at the rear for quietness, the lack of television channels will again disappoint leaving one wondering why the TV was not just tuned to the local DAB channels instead of a truncated selection. Whilst he parking is ample and secure, do check that the overnight cost is included in the room rate.

The question if the plates can be taken, while I was still eating gave me an unpleasant feeling. This happened every morning and gave me the impression I had to leave immediatly

Meine Freundinnen und ich kommen seit Jahren zum Festival of Quilts und sind immer in diesem Hotel abgestiegen. Die freundlichen, hilfsbereiten Mitarbeiter, die bequemen Betten und auch sonst alles rundherum machen den Aufenthalt jedes Mal zu einem besonderen Vergnügen. Wir werden dieses Hotel immer wieder buchen.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel whilst visiting the Festival of Quilts. Very comfy and good service. Good breakfast but feel there could be more variety given for the evening meal.
Will be back again next year.
