Historical Traveller Reviews of Novotel Birmingham Airport Hotel
Overpriced Travel Lodgefrom warren_zevon
Perfect for early morning flightsfrom lettzz
Rooms are large, clean and airy. Very quiet with no noise from the airport.
Best rates are always on the novotel website, the later you leave it the lower the price goes, rack rate is £120+ but if you book online it can come down to £49 for the room.
Breakfast is not included in the cheaper room rates, but with such a choice at the airport this has never been an issue.
Parking is not included in the hotel rate, but this can be booked in advance on the NCP website at a lower rate that if you turn up and pay on the day.
Acceptable although tiredfrom Gaspari
Search for a dealfrom Metwo3
Airport has food court and small 24hr grocery so limited alternative to hotel food, though still expensive.
I booked in advance (prepay) through a website that specializes in airport parking and airport hotels at about half the walk in price. Nonsmoking room was large with 2 beds, desk, closet, bath and separate toilet. It was hot and I had to open the double windows to try to cool it off, but basically had to wait until sun went down (maybe get East side?). No airplane noise at all, just constant bus and luggage trolley noise. So, I did close the windows and suffer the reduced heat at night.
Good location but rooms need a facelift - overpriced.from MickeyStephens
Not greatfrom Patch2
Highly recommendedfrom Goagirl
Pricey Parkingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We found the room very clean and liked the fact that the toilet was seperate from the bathroom.
We had a meal in the restaurant in the evening which was very good if a bit expensive.The breakfast next morning was very good and value for money.
Our main gripe was the fact there is no parking at the Hotel only a airport car park. When we went to pay the next morning we found it was £12.95 for the 18hrs we had parked., this we thought was a very expensive.
We would stay there again .
Very good location for the tired travellerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent location, good value.from thetravellingfool
To overcome the jet lag, we stayed at the Novotel when we landed the 3rd week of June, 2004.
We stayed for 2 nights before flying on to Germany.
The hotel is located literally on the Birmingham airport property, and is a few short steps from the terminal.
Although the walkin rate is 120 British Pounds, if you book this hotel in advance, you can get a real deal. We got a weekend rate of 69 Pounds including the English Buffet Breakfast for 2.
The rate also included all taxes (which are generally very high in the UK).
We found rates of as low as 45 Pounds/night on the Novotel site, for weekend rates well in advance without the breakfast.
We liked that you can push the airport trolley with luggage right to the hotel, and then into the elevator up to (and into) your hotel room!!
The hotel room was quite clean, but found that it required a bit of paint here and there (especially on the toilet wall and door frame).
The toilet is located in a seperate room to the shower/sink area, which is nice when 2 people are staying together .
The room had room controlled heating, but we didn't see any airconditioner controls.
I doubt with the UK climate its necessary though, and just opened the window when we wanted air.
There is a nice pub in the lobby area, as well as a coin-fed internet computer (10p/min)
The resteraunt was clean, but we didn't think the buffet was up to what we were expecting, being used to North American meals. For example, the eggs were sunny side up in a holding area, but after a few min's become very rubbery (they should be on request to be made fresh).
On the positive side, the fruits were very good, and the coffee was fresh (and included in the price).
They had plenty of cereals, and breads.
Considering the buffet has a walkin price of 12.50 British Pounds, we found this to be quite expensive with the present currency exchange rate.
The #900 Bus outside the front door of the hotel (infront of the airport) takes you into the center of the city for 1 Pound (20 min ride).
Price and convinence was #1 for us with this hotel on our trip.
The room was clean, and the staff were professional.
We would definetely stay here again if ever using Birmingham as a stop-over again.
