Booked this hotel for 4 of us for one night and was pleasantly surprised. Although some of the rooms still need refurbishing (we booked 2 rooms) you still get good value. One of the twin rooms we booked had been upgraded and had a controlled thermostat that the older room didn't. The only negatives I found were that some of...

Stayed there for two nights due to working locally. Room was ok. And breakfast was just about edible (only just) I stayed in a holiday inn down in Kent for £62 which was fine for the quality of the room. This holiday inn was £85 which is a lot for a what you get.

If you are going to NEC and need a very reasonably priced place to stay, this is the best place. Especially if you like Jaguars - the factory is just 5 minutes away :) Rooms are spacious enough, the beds have very good mattresses. A good pub is nearby, and there's plenty of parking. Just beware of the entrance, when...

As a priority member I know what to expect and am never disappointed. Room good, AC in room helps as without it does get might warm, even in October! One criticism is over the breakfast, should try to offer more hot choices rather than anaemic scrambled eggs and cheap sausages. Would much prefer to know if they are sourced locally.

I had to change rooms 3 times because in the first room there was only a tiny stove which was useless, so after complaining, they changed me to a room with air aconditioning. The problem was it was cold as well. Guests are not allowed to change the temperature so I called several times to reception to make them turn...

This Holiday Inn Express hotel is what you expect, the rooms are okay, a fine size and still in a good condition. The location is not the best due too way to much noise from the motorway. The breakfast buffet is absolute nothing, so low quality standard that it is better to skip this. Staff friendliness is awesome. So all...
