I've been staying a lot in Premier Inns recently and they've been 'OK' although I'm still waiting to find one that can offer me a room at £29 a night. I've had to pay two and a half times that! It was only because I couldn't get into the Solihull South one that I thought I'd try the Corus just up the Stratford Road. I imagined the cost would be significantly more than the PI but was amazed to find myself paying roughly the same with a superb breakfast thrown in as well.
The rooms are very nice - good size with proper cupboards and wardrobe - and you even get free wifi. There's Sky Sports down in the pub, and - for those a bit more health conscious than me - a leisure centre including pools and so on. I might even try it myself next time I'm there. I'll certainly go back when I'm in Solihull on business again.
The breakfast is top quality with - for me - the proof being the fact that I could get proper fresh fruit as well as rye/sourdough bread with my full English.
Only downside - supper. I was a bit disappointed with the menu and the speed of service so would probably either go for room service (provided they'd answer the damn phone); go out; or bring something in.
