Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Archer6810 Avoid front rooms
I chose this hotel because it was near to the venue of an important course that I was attending.
The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable.
The breakfast was excellent.
Our room was almost directly above the main entrance, and as it was very warm we needed to have the window open (it doesn't open far).
There are a lot of arrivals/departures throughout the night - many of them using noisy trolleys.
I was hardly rested and refreshed for my course the next day.
I am currently looking for a hotel for another course next month, may try another chain with air conditioning.

I would recommend this hotel and staff to all friends etc that want a good nights sleep, good food and excellent breakfast. Although it states continental style breakfast this does include hot food (a good range of food to start the day) Proximity to NEC is perfect. I could find nothing adverse to say about this hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Auntyfanty Excellent for an Overnight Stay
The beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in, I genuinely did not want to get up, despite being starving and desperate for breakfast. The pillows were equally comfy - the whole bed experience was amazing.
It was great value for money - I was seriously impressed at the value, especially as we all had a large cooked breakfast.
Ideal for an overnight stay prior to or return from holiday, or to be used as a base for sightseeing.
Definitely will stay again, if the need arises.

we were in the area to visit a friends new baby and to celebrate my birthday, my grandson was very sick in the night and the way it was handled by on duty night staff was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble she reassured me and asked was there any more she could do to help. the hotel as a whole was surprisingly modern and really nice, the value for money cant be beaten and I wouldnt hesitate to return and to tell friends about the hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ellie L Very convenient for airport users
We had an overnight stay here before flying to Rome from Birmingham airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly and booked a taxi for us at 4:00a.m.!
The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We were able to leave our car in the hotel car park while were away, the taxi ride to the airport was about 10 minutes and cost £6.00 so this was a much better option than parking at the airport.
Overall a very pleasant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bogsy Good clean hotel
A pleasant stay but could have done with air conditioning as it was very warm. Also I would suggest a few chairs/bench/tables outside to sit in the hot evenings - there is plent of space on the grass behind the dining area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack9999 Good Stay As Usual
As a regular customer of Holiday Inn this was to the standard that I have come to expect from the chain, if not exceeding it with a more modern look.
My only issue with the stay was that the windows could only open a small way and there was no air conditioning in my room, making for a hot sleep.
Other than that, friendly staff and wide choice of breakfast made for a good overall stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tinyx2 Excellent staff and service
The hotel was friendly and the service excellent, without being over familiar. The pizza that we ate was well priced and delicious. The salad could have been larger for the cost. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. only one night of our, several night, stay was there any late night noise in the corridor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Puddi59 Excellent service
The reception staff were so friendly and welcoming even though we were only there for one night before flying on holiday. Free return taxi fares also included which we didn't expect. Comfortable bed , shame we had an early flight so didn't sample the free breakfast. Will definitely use this hotel again when flying from Birmingham.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chippymick what we have come to expect from IHG
everything was as we expected from IHG. we were not disappointed. the staff were very friendly and helpful, and when we returned to pick up our car they were only to happy to allow us to help ourselves to breakfast and coffee, even asking if we had enjoyed our holiday in the USA, and clearly interested in what we said. Thank you again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gsddusty1 great staff and good nights sleep
We visited the hotel for one night to go to an event at the NEC LG arena. From query prior to arrival, throughout the visit to departure staff were helpful, pleasant, happy ,professional and went the extra mile. I took my elderly father who has not stayed in a hotel in some years and he was impressed enough to comment on the staff in a positive way also. The rooms were clean and I love the choice of pillow as soft or firm. The temperature of the room was comfortable and I slept like a log all night.
The shower was powerful and fully adjustable
In all I would recommend and use this hotel again as it was very good value for money. I have paid a lot more and received a lot less service over the years elsewhere

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Clare23 Extra charges spoil the day...
Wonderful stay. Clean and friendly. Pity about the charge that just appeared on my card. When I called to ask what it was I was told the rate had been reviewed! I paid upfront for 5 rooms over 2 months ago. I am told I will be refunded but am sure it will be a lengthy process. Appalling holiday inn!!! So we won't be back

Location has great access to the motorways and is very convenient for the Birmingham business park. Room was clean and ample for an overnight stay. Staff were friendly, and hotel was not too busy so great nights sleep and no fighting for room in the breakfast area in the morning!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lynda nickname pleasant staff, room very clean and comfortable
it would have been nice to have had more than one tea bag in the room, don't drink coffee or chocolate, just a small niggle but maybe something you could bear in mind. £2 for a cup of tea from the machine in the foyer was not enjoyable but typical of machine drinks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Picabo Comfortable, good location, and good value
This was the best location for a businees trip.
The room is not air conditioned, so on what was one of our rare hot days, was a little uncomfortable, but rooms were great, staff friendly and breakfast very nice. Ideal for what we wanted, and would return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chrsay Highly recommended
We used to use this hotel regularly so it was interesting to book in after a couple of years absence and due to a return to the area for business. The staff are still fantastic and the hotel is in an excellent location. Highly recommended if you need to be near the NEC. One of the top end of the HIExp hotels in our opinion.
The only criticism we would have is the internet connection which was excruciatingly slow - when we managed to stay connected. So if you need to be online while away from home you may want to consider this or ensure you can tether your computer - unless it was a glitch that has since been rectified.
