My wife and I stayed here on 10th November 2011 in order to attend a concert at the nearby Symphony Hall. The location is ideal with the hotel equidistant from the popular Mailbox with its range of shops and restaurants with the bars and attractions of Broad Street and Brindley Place being five minutes walk away in the opposite direction. The location also means that there is very little traffic noise (apart from the odd passing canal barge!) which is well worth considering. Broad Street is very noisy with both traffic and late night/early morning revelers as I found out during a stay at the Travelodge on Broad Street in September.
Check in was smooth and Alex on the main desk was quick and efficient and provided a bit of humour as she explained that there were no rooms with a canal view left but she preferred what she called "the city view" or to be more precise the view overlooking the hotel car park.
On exiting the lift you have to use your room keycard to access the door to your corridor which is a good security measure The room was spotlessly clean but a little on the small side compared to other Premier Inns I have stayed in but perfectly acceptable for one nights stay.
I don't tend to eat in the hotel restaurant so I can't comment on the food although the menu in the room showed a good selection of fare. Overall it was ideal for my purpose I would certainly stay here again.
