Having stayed at many Premier Inns, I was very pleasantly surprised with this one. The location is handy for New Street station and the city centre, everything is sparkly and new, the staff are friendly and professional and the rooms are really comfortable, large and quiet, considering the location! I only stayed for one night but it was fab.
I had a room on the 3rd floor opposite the lifts to start with and despite this couldn't hear the lift at all. Unfortunately I could hear the person in the adjoining room and so asked to be moved. This was very quickly and quietly accommodated and I was given a room on the 5th floor.
Dinner was the usual Thyme affair, tasty, a good portion, with efficient and friendly service.
Breakfast was an entertaining experience with Joyce ensuring I was set up for the day with the cooked breakfast, a very high standard indeed.
The only small downside is with the reception on the next level from the entrance (which is itself up a ramp from street level) I felt a little vulnerable coming into an empty vestibule with so many people hanging around on the street outside.
All in all though a great little Premier Inn, and one I would return to.
