We've just returned from an overnight stay in this hotel and can't fault it. We arrived at 10.30am and dropped the bags off at the hotel where they're chained up and you're given a ticket for each bag for when you collect.
The room, 119, is a large family room situated on the corner of Waterloo St & Temple St. This gives you 6 big windows so a lot of light in the room and a lovely view of the cathederal. Despite being a busy area there was not a noise issue. The room was also spotlessly clean too. A great nights sleep was had.
Breakfast was, as usual, spot on! Piping hot and fresh. Several reviews have mentioned going to the Briar Rose Wetherspoons for breakfast, That is something that I wouldn't recommend. We used to have breakfast there when visiting Birmingham for the day and they were always good. After leaving our bags at the hotel when we arrived we went there for a breakfast and it was terrible. It was stone cold and returned. The replacement was barely better. A lady a couple of tables away returned hers too. The following day we went in for a drink before collecting our bags before getting the train home and saw 3 different groups of people complaining about their food. Stick with the Premier Inn's breakfast instead!
All the staff we had contact with were very nice and friendly. The fact that we booked the room early and got it for £29 + breakfasts is the icing on the cake.
