We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We were there for a wedding. The reception hall was designed and set up beautifully, everything finished off to the highest quality. Our room was about 20 minutes away, making it ideal to go back to for a bit of peace.

Arrived at the hotel and was given a room with double bed and a 3/4 roll out bed. Roll out bed was so uncomfortable that my son had to sleep with me in the double. It should be possible on enquiring that no twin rooms were available and I would have picked some other hotel. Breakfast was very good.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza while attending an exhibition at the nearby NEC. The location of the hotel is fine for the NEC but the prices of things in the hotel is a disgrace! When we arrived the first morning we got 2 breakfast's which cost £31.50 I could of had 2 steak dinners for that!!! The hotel is totally overpriced food, drink etc even the internet was £5 for one hour. I travel a lot on business and most good hotels I have stayed in the internet was complimentary. If I was to go to Birmingham again to the NEC I would stay in the city which is only a 6 minute train ride.
