Book the Holiday Inn Express at Birmingham South
There's no need to be stranded at the airport. Instead, take advantage of your time with a miniature city break before you've even laid eyes on a plane. The Express South is just 15 minutes from the terminal, but seems in another world. Right in the centre of Birmingham, the hotel is surrounded by things to do and see. Visit the famous Bullring shopping centre, the surrounding restaurants and cinema screens, or even venture out for a day at Drayton Manor theme park. Pack as much fun into your holiday as you can, we say.
Arrival at the Express by Holiday Inn South with breakfast
You can check in from 3pm. Here are the directions to the hotel:
Leave the M42 at junction 6 and follow the A45 towards Birmingham for six miles. You'll pass the hotel on your right, opposite Alligator Self Storage. Continue on to the roundabout and do a U-turn, heading back in the same direction to find the hotel.
By public transport:
The hotel is a mile from Tyseley train station. Come out of the station and follow Kings Road. At the end of the road, turn right onto Coventry Road. The hotel is 100 metres down the road on the left.
Overnight parking at the hotel is included in the price.
Please be aware the car park has height restriction of 1.8 metres.
You must check out by 11:00. The hotel's reception will book a taxi to the airport for you. This will take about 10 minutes and cost around £12.
Getting to and from Birmingham airport
Hop on one of Airparks' blue transfer buses to the airport. Buses run every 25 minutes, 24-hours a day an take just 14 minutes. Transfers are included in the price.
Buses operate 24-hours a day, and between 03:00 and 23:55 they run every 25 minutes. Outside of these times, a shuttle service runs on request. The buses lower to the curb to accommodate wheelchair users and so it's easier to get on and off.
Skis, snowboards, bikes and large items can be taken onto the transfer buses as long as they are securely fastened and/or are in appropriate cases. If the luggage racks are already full when you reach the front of the queue you will need to wait for the next bus - don't worry, they come every 25 minutes.
