It is not that close to NEC as others hotels do, but still it keeps the same high price due it. It is true that the hotel holds the Holiday Inn quality levels, there is lot of parking area around and enjoys of a very nice pub next door, but I guess that those value add will be only for...

Typical Holiday Inn Express. Rooms clean and sizeable. Staff very friendly. The chap who checked us in, Bilaal, was really helpful and efficient. Kitchen doesn't open until 18.00 but next door is open.

This hotel is ideally located for the NEC, few mins in a taxi. The rooms were big and bed comfy, shower was ok but not the best we have used and no bath, not a problem but could be for some. Breakfast was good and well varied, nice selection. Good service at check in. My only gripe and while it...

Great night's sleep in big bedroom. Hotel a bit void of character but warm and comfy altogether. Handy pub next door for meals a better option than the hotel bar area. Parking is £8 for one night, should be free first night IMO, I understand the airport factor but still it's unnecessary.
