My friend and I stayed here after a Take That gig at the arena. A great stay in a great hotel. Once checked in our room was fine and we popped next door to take advantage of the pub beer garden and the lovely sunshine. Great choice of food and drinks at reasonable prices. A good walk to the arena...

We had a mad week. Black Sabbath meet and greet on 29th January at the 02 London. Back again on 31st January at the 02 with 'normal tickets'. With both shows being superb and our credit cards already suffering, Mrs. Electric suddenly decided that we were going to see them AGAIN at their final ever show at the Genting arena...

I come to Birmingham a lot and usually stay at the Holiday Inn at the airport- versus the Express. Due to a booking error by my company (lucky me) I wound up here. The staff was absolutely delightful and treated me like royalty. The room was a little small but very clean and just fine for me on my own....

I was attending a business event at the NEC last week and the hotel provided a very well located place to stay. Situated just off the M42 and about a mile from the arena, transport links were very convenient. Staff at check in were friendly and efficient; at which point I paid for 48 hours parking, costing £14. The room...

We stayed here as we had a really early flight. The taxi to the airport is only a few pounds and we left our car in the hotel carpark. The hotel has a bar and decent food. Given the cost of airport parking it was a great idea to stay here and saved a really early drive down.

Stayed here while attending an exhibition and it's really convenient and a great place for a business stay. A good way to beat the rush hour chaos and ensure you get to the show on time. Staff are friendly and the food and service is good In short a good hotel for attending the NEC

I wouldn't stay here for a leisure trip but for a business trip it's very good. Clean and efficiently run hotel. Friendly staff and a good breakfast by business hotel standards. The Little Owl pub/restaurant next door was excellent
