“Couldn't have asked for better!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Myself, my husband and our two small children stayed here after a visit to Drayton Manor. It took about 20 minutes to get there from the park. On arrival there were plenty of free parking spaces at the front and rear of the hotel. The receptionist was lovely and friendly and Very attentive.

We stayed in room 202 which was a family room. We had a double bed, two singles and a travel cot (we requested the cot on booking). The room was very modern and clean with a large flat screen TV and a good selection of channels. The bathroom was again clean and modern. We had a walk in shower and toilet which was fine with our little ones (shower maybe not so good for children under 1).

We ordered breakfast on arrival for the following morning. The lady working in the restaurant was an absolute legend and she made a real fuss of the children. She couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order and the continental items were stocked up well.

When we come back to Birmingham we will definitely be staying at this hotel. In the current climate when a lot of people have not a lot to be cheerful about it was lovely to come into contact with such pleasant friendly staff :-)

I stay away a lot on business and the Premier Inn chain is perfect for me. This hotel has lovely staff, a superb Indian restaurant next door and above all from Monday to Thursday is incredibly quiet. Hence I was able to do paperwork in the evening and get a good night's sleep. You must try the Balti restaurant next door. The food is exceptional quality. Allow plenty of time though to get into Birmingham in the morning; the traffic is really bad.

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet room and the staff will oblige.

Dear Abcjx,

Thank you so much for taking the time out to leave leave such a positive comment. We are happy to hear that our staff met your expectations and you got the good night garuntee like promised.
We do appologise as a hotel for the traffic convenience but as we are located off the M6J7 it's a busy junction first thing.

All the best.

We stayed at this premier inn as a stop over on our way to London. It was excellent value for money and breakfast was delicious too. All the staff were really friendly and chatty. Rooms were comfortable and lovely and clean. Will definitely stop here again. :)

Fabulous stay. The staff were excellent, very attentive, professional and friendly. Although all the staff were fabulous, we have to give a special shout out to Shanna, Premier Inn should be very proud of her. Thank you Shanna and Sophie for my daughters birthday card as well! Great location. Only an 8 mile drive to Birmingham and if you dont want to drive you can get the bus across the road outside the school.

Good eateries in the location with Harvester to the front and an Indian restaurant and takeaway down the road. Would stay again.

We stayed - our first at a Premier Inn - because we were attending a party in the area. The booking and check-in procedures were very efficient, the room was clean, functional and we had everything we needed for an overnight stop. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable. The TV was big and new, the shower was powerful. A special mention for the staff who were all cheerful and helpful. We didn't stay for breakfast as we were only half an hour from home, but it looked appealing and well priced. The stay cost only £39 which was fantastic value.

This is the best Premier Inn I have ever stayed at, by far - and there have been quite a few. It started before we arrived, when I spoke with Clive to ask if it was OK to have flowers delivered ahead of our arrival. Although I arranged for the florist to deliver, Clive was willing to go out in his own time to a florist and get them for me - well over and above the call of duty. Sorry I didn'nt get to meet him during our 2 day stay. On arrival, the check in was warm, friendly and welcoming. The room couldn't have been cleaner. Breakfast was served inside the Premier Inn itself (we've always had to go next door to a Harvester/Beefeater etc) and we got the same friendly service, with perfect food. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The quad room we expected was just a family room with 4 beds. Other places with quad rooms have bee...
