Great Location

Hotel in good location - really close to Birmingham International station, the NEC, and the airport. Hotel really hard to find, signage is sparse and inadequate. Room was very clean and good water pressure in shower. Bed was extreemly uncomfortable, pillows were very lumpy. TV came on automatically at 6am and woke us up. Restaurant was really nice and overall it was quite good value for money - pity they didnt provide decent pillows!

good shack up

Value good, rooms clean, staff kinda moody tho. Pizza was good but had to convince the manager to cook it only let us have one because it was 22.01 and they stopped servicing food at 22.00. Other than that staff seemed okay.

NEC visit

Stayed here whilst attending the NEC, which location was great and only a short walk from the hotel to the venue. However on arrival we were asked to pay £7.50 for parking. No where on booking was there a mention that a charge for parking would be required. The info regarding this and other charges were out of date on the room literature also. We stayed and dined in for an evening meal, which to be honest was very poor and basic. The service was slow and left some time between orders and receiving orders. The food in itself was in relative terms expensive with additional costs added eg a ceasar salad (so for a few bits of lettuce leaves a sprinkle of croutons and walnuts etc) it cost £7.95 but if you wanted chicken or bacon with it the price went up, the same also for other dishes.

Breakaway for me and my husband

The hotel was nice the room was ok it was clean the bedding was awful the pillows were awful. The rooms have no internet like it says there is only internet in Resteraunt . The staff woke us up at 8.30 to clean the room I told her that we did not need to check out till 12.00 . The cleaner kept coming back I was in the shower and she let herself in to our room at 9.30 so I was not happy if you want people to check out earlier you should say that on booking. It a shame because it could be really nice hotel . So I will not be staying here again on till it changes

One night stay over

Great value, clean rooms nice and quiet. Good food in the restaurant and great breakfast, as much as you want! Only slight fault, tv signal was a bit poor, but I forgot to mention it at reception. Staff friendly, great location for train station and NEC.

If you like sleeping in a warehouse

We were looking for a comfortable airport-accessible Birmingham hotel for our last night of a three-week UK visit. What the hotel touted as stylish and modern was more stark and cold to us. The location was hard to find, in an ugly industrial zone, and not near enough to the airport to walk (and had no transport service). The room was stark, not what had been requested eight months earlier--a double rather than twins--and badly planned. (The sofa is under the TV, which, in any event, didn't work). Synthetic wood floors. Dim lighting. The Internet isn't WiFi (as claimed and shown in the Web site) and hooks up in a dimly lit alcove with no space for working. The shower water spilled out on the floor and the sink drained badly. The breakfast buffet wasn't offered until after we had to be at the airport for our flight, and the exit to the parking lot was gated and we weren't given the code for that when we checked out and had to go back for it. Not at all what we had wanted in an airport hotel.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

Shop for a hotel nearer the airport if you are booking there because you have a flight. There are two hotels right across from the terminal.

Ramada Encore

Definitely would stay here again. Spartan lobby but rooms were new and spacious. TV and desk were both oddly small.
