A bit basic - depends on what you are paying
This is a more basic hotel than than the Ramada branding would suggest. Poor quality laminate on the bedroom floors that is swelling and lifting in place. Ambience in the public areas is non-existent and partly has the feel of canteen.
It's a 10 minute walk to the NEC/Rail station which is well connected to the airport, provided you don't mind walking through a light industrial estate.

Booked for convenience and rooms was decent for the price paid.
Down side was internet connection. With the hotel website blazoned with 'Free WiFi" across every page i would have expected more than a very slow connection in the bar/restaurant and nothing anywhere else.
As a business traveller this was a big downside.
The food was very poor. Bland tasteless microwaved expensive rubbish. I wouldnt feed it to a dog (if i had a dog!).
Breakfast was acceptable

The staff were excellent, very helpful across borard and not just at the reception. Use of internet in the room as well as wifi in common areas was ideal for my purposes. The room service was great. Overall no complaints and great to stay at.

Excellent for gigs in NEC
Only a short walk to LG Arena. Room was very warm but air conditioning worked well. There was no hairdryer but that didn't cause any problems. Good variety of teas and coffee in the room. Shower gel and soap gel included. Didn't have breakfast as tend not to eat much in the morning, but a short walk to the train station had a choice of somewhere to eat a much lighter breakfast. We came from the gig quite late but the bar was still open and lots of people from the gig queued for drinks. They had plenty of bar staff on to cover this.

Accomodation at UK Games Expo
Good value for money, stayed here as the Hilton (where the convention was) was more expensive.
Bed was a little uncomfortable, but it is never the same as your own bed and I slept well enough.
Breakfast was good, standard greasy fried eggs, seems Hoteliers can't get them right anywhere - bacon was a bit fatty but I am being picky, it was all well cooked and tasted great.
