Weekend at the centre of England
We have a great two nights.
The accommodation was comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful and polite but were very busy. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was excellent.
Constant background noise
I had a very spacious room which was fine but I was disturbed during the night by what seemed like a constant hum from a boiler or something similar.
I would want a different room to stay again. I arrived late so I didn't get a chance to avail of the bar, which looked very cosy and inviting. Staff were friendly on booking in - though when I phoned them to say I would be late the man rather unsympathetically said the doors would be locked by 11.30, which left me with a slight panic that I might have to sleep in the car if I lost my way. Very convenient for the Motor Museum.
Our room was clean a good size and everything you could need was available .
The restaurant was understaffed and we waited an hour and a half for our food and our starter arrived after our main , and only when we asked where our starter was . Breakfast was limited we arrived at 8 am and only 1 croissant was left and not replenished . Only margarine was on offer no butter. I would stay again as hopefully it was a one off
Ideal for NEC
Very nice staff, continental breakfast very acceptable, star rating seemed a little generous but nonetheless a pleasant well priced hotel very close to NEC/ airport.
Bargain for the NEC, beautiful food, but sleepless night!
My partner and I stayed two nights here, everything is as you would expect in terms of cleanliness etc and value for money was a bargain, £50 a night and literally a 10min drive from the NEC - Perfect.
The evening food served was beautiful, highly recommend the scallops to start, the chicken and the butternut squash side dish. Breakfast was a standard continental, it would have been nice to have a little more choice on the cooked breakfast side (smoked salmon / poached as opposed to fried eggs) but the bacon and scrambled eggs was not a problem as the staff were very accommodating. The only qualm I have was I didn't sleep great. The window could only open to a certain point making the room sweltering hot when it was a warm night. We was also next to the road, so the traffic noise was a bit annoying. However, when I finally managed to drift off I was fine, the bed was comfy and there was plenty of room to turn over without having an armpit / backside in my face. I would stay here again but maybe have a room not on the main road!
Ideal for NEC
Excellent accomodation, food top notch, disappointed in morning that staff were more interested in talking amongst themselves rather than offering any cooked options for breakfast.
This aside would definately stay again.
April 2014 Our Stay in Meriden
We are repeat visitors to this pub and enjoyed our stay there.
We had no compliants, the food was great and the staff very welcoming.
What can I say, a 17th Century Inn, full of history, yet modern in attitude.
The upstairs floors creaked with age, as you would hope, and expect, yet the main areas, the restaurant, and the rooms where clean and modern. And, yet in keeping with original building.
With breakfast thrown in, we decided to stay onsite for our evening meal. It was more expensive than we would normally pay, but this was a special occasion - the quality of the food was fabulous and the service good. The only minor snag (and given it was for one night it was quite refreshing) the mobile phone signal was all but none existent – needing a short walk up the car park to get a text out. NOT the fault of the Hotel, and the stay was not majorly effected for that. What I would say is, if you need Wireless access, arrange an account with O2 WiFi before you go – the wireless its self is a useful facility kindly supplied by the Hotel, but it needs a confirmation text if you are creating an account for the first time – and you may well struggle to receive it. That said, you do get 2 hours “temporary” access anyway – so good on them for that. Seriously consider this location if you are visiting the Birmingham area (we were visiting the Gadget Show Live @ the NEC) – it has character, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food exceptional
Rubbish-give it a wide berth!
Horrible rooms, things that go bump in the night, All night.
Rubbish beer and average food. A customer collapsed heavily in the bar; the staff just looked on and did nothing. Fortunately I am a former Anaesthetic Practitioner and Paramedic so myself and a help customer assisted until an ambulance arrived. I had just started my meal so when I retuned to it it was cold. One member of staff did say thanks. Asked to speak to the manager the following morning, but was not interested in talking to me about their complete lack of customer care and lack of a designated First Aid person. I complained about the noise in the room above me on 2 consecutive nights. I was told there was no room above me. Looking at my room from the Car Park, there was a room above me and it was full of things running and jumping about all night. Unaccounted for guests, or guests from a very long time ago...??
The most friendly staff anywhere - highly recommended
We stayed here as a base for visiting the NEC, it is only a short drive so very suitable.
From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were struck by the fact that the staff were the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered. The room was large, clean and comfortable. We used the restaurant for evening meal which was very good, also the included continetal breakfast in the morning. Will we stay here again - most definitely!!
