stayed here on it's opening night in a family room. excellant facilities, Literally didn't hear a sound from inside or outside the hotel despite 24hr building works outside our window. Breakfast was lovely, the nicest hotel breakfast I think I have ever had. great location for shopping and only about 15min walk to canal side. travelled with my husband and 2.5 year old and 1 year old. and nothing was too much trouble at breakfast. All the staff were very pleasant and despite being new, they were all well trained and knew all they should, and asked a few about the local area and we were provided with the info we wanted. Parked at The Mailbox, which is well sign posted to find and only a short walk away, straight up Navigation street, I signed up for their pay and stay scheme a week or so before going and received a card with £5 credit on and that card entitles you to 15% discount on every visit so for 24hr parking it only cost us about £12. Town Hall car park was also in good vacinity although maybe not as secure. NCP would be a bit further away and very costly.
A few negatives,
Sofa bed, which I ended up on with youngest who was teething and wouldn't sleep in the (very well made up) travel cot, very uncompfortable. very hard indeed and I noticed the bedding didn't feel quite the standard of the main bed.
Directions on web site are a waste of time. we spent 15 minutes in the dark at 9pm at night with our young children looking for this place, thankfully some of the overnight workers on the station were very helpfull.
Upon arrival in our room the sofa bed wasn't made up, and at the time couldn't find a number in our room for reception so had to get back down there myself, which with arriving late and young children the 10-15 minutes it took for the bedding to arrive in our room did seem a little too long.
Final negative there was a massive Halogen work light on the roof tops outside our room which didn't actually seem to be helping with the works as it was shinning right up at both of our room windows, and despite tucking the curtains right into the window sill I did still wake up thinking it must have been about 7am, only to look and discover it was in fact 3am!!!
will definately be staying in a premier inn again and if visiting Birmingham again would stay at this particular one again too.
Directions:- very simple on the ramp exiting the Pallasades onto New street. and for anyone that has visited this area in the past 25yrs, it's next to the Macdonalds, and opposite Waterstones.
