Directions

If you’re travelling by car, leave the M6 at Junction 6. Then take the A45 towards Birmingham. Follow the Airport signs to the hotel. The Novotel is located opposite the terminal building. The nearest train station is at Birmingham Airport, which is connected to the terminal with a free 90 second sky-rail.

Airport views
