Nigh on perfect
I would recommend the hollies to anyone travelling to the NEC and surrounding areas.
The proprietor Paul is happy and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The acommodation is spotlessly clean and homely. This is my idea of a perfect place to stay when you're away from your home environment.
It's excellent value for money and the breakfast was cooked freshly and just right. All in all a very lovely away from home experience..
Fantastic service, good if you need to go to both Birmingham and Coventry, but hard to find!
First a word of warning - the location shown on the map on here is wrong.
It is not near Marsh lane / Lincoln Farm Cafe - I must have wasted half an hour driving to and fro around that section only to pop into Premier in and be given directions to actual location. It's actually off set from the road, so you struggle to see it, but it's next door to Fleet car sales. For benefit of future travelers I've put it in google maps (currently subject to moderation!). Now for the accommodation - it was well presented and clean - my room was a good size and not awkward to use bathroom, but it appears that not all rooms are the same. As other people have commented, you dear hear the night freight train - being a light sleeper I always travel with ear plugs.
For the money you can't really fault it - full English breakfast included. I'm not big into fried breakfasts but it wasn't as greasy or horrid as described by one or two others here. The host was very attentive and polite, and went out of his way to make everybody feel comfortable. Paying by cash wasn't ideal, however for a small business I can understand the need to keep costs down. Whilst location might appear a bit remote, it turned out very useful as I needed to visit both Coventry and Birmingham. Depending on my requirements next time I'm in the area, I certainly would consider using again.
