Premier Inn Birmingham City Centre (New St Station) Hotel

“Teachers on tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

A rather unimpressive frontage to the foyer area of this hotel was soon altered by the impressive check-in and comfortable if slightly confined lounge area. Hotel was clean throughout and had a warm, homely feel to it - despite it being in the centre of the city. Staff were exceptionally helpful at all times of the day and night and the food was of a very good standard. At breakfast times, look out for Joyce as your 'waitress'. She is a dream. No request seems to inconvenience her in any way. And be prepared to spend some time having a chat with her!
Overall, our stay in this Premier Inn was excellent. All our expectations were met and in many cases they were easily surpassed. Thoroughly recommended if you need to stay in the city centre.

Stayed here twice on business and I honestly cannot fault it. From the minute you check in till you check out, the staff are attentive, well mannered and really care about giving you the best experience possible. Thyme restaurant based in the hotel is beautiful, food is tasty and really well presented. The breakfast choice is great and the staff are so on the ball. Room was spotless. Overall, best premier inn & one of the best hotels Ive stayed.

I was booked into this hotel when I came to do something at the University of Birmingham and wanted for convenience to stay near New Street Station. This hotel is the opposite of those decayed, creaking, grand old Victorian station hotels (clanking heat systems, ornate lobbies, lumpy beds, ancient surly staff, old codgers in armchairs getting steadily drunk in dark bars) we all love to hate (and, against our best impulses, secretly love). This place is the essence of "hotel" stripped to its bare bones: you get a room with an exceptionally comfortable bed and nice sheets and duvet -- after all, you're there to sleep, and in this hotel there is really nothing else to do. There is no lobby: you take an elevator from the street to the second floor, and there's a sort of small empty space with a lectern-type table, with a computer, where two astonishingly young women in the sorts of uniforms budget airlines make their (equally young) staff wear will find your reservation and give you a key card. You go to your room and sleep; that's it. Don't ask to change the heat (the engineer isn't around and the nice young women have no idea how to do that, although they will at the slightest complaint refund your stay -- which I refused as absurd). Don't look for a business center if your smart phone doesn't work -- there isn't one. Don't, for that matter, look for a lounge, a lobby, a newspaper, a comfortable chair, a view, or anything one might normally find in a "hotel". They don't exist here. This is a sort of shelving system for humans, not a hotel in the way we think of it (with, say, a human being who owns and runs it, or idiosyncrasies of one kind or another). There is, however, a small bar (thank God), and in the morning, if your room comes with breakfast, you will proceed there to eat the kind of breakfast that is, if not bad exactly, entirely without distinguishing traits of any kind. The coffee will come from a machine. Enough said.
So, if you want a comfortable bed, and want absolutely nothing else from your hotel -- nothing to offend you, certainly, but nothing to enchant you either -- this hotel is for you. It is the equivalent of the kind of fast food (Pret a Manger, say, not McDonalds) that will be the same wherever you go. It is without distinction of any kind but will neither harm you nor surprise you. One drawback is that the surrounding area is of a horribleness that surpasses understanding: the station area is under construction and it looks like a skip. That said, I slept well.

Hello Intrepid_historian
Thankyou for staying with us, im happy that you slept well with us and as a hotel we try and give you as much as we possibly can, so along with the comfortable bed and nice sheets and duvet, the rooms are fitted with flat screen TV's which are fitted with freeview and our guests are more than welcome to sit in the bar area to sit down and rest and do either some work or read a book. Our air conditioning can be controlled in the room or from our office but unfortunately on the day you stayed pur air conditioning pannel in our office wasnt working and we were waiting for an engineer to come and look at it.
We will take your comments on board and see what we can do to make your stay even better next time.
Thankyou for your review

Waited ages at restaurant entrance. No one there or at bar. When we were eventually attended to were told a large party was in and there would be delays. Ate elsewhere. Money back offer for stay is not what we wanted, we wanted to be fed in safety of the hotel. Hotel in good location.

Hello Aussiejohn_12,
I was very disheartened when I read your review.
I'd like to apologise for the lack of staff at the front of the restaurant and bar, and how there would've be delays due to having a large group in our restaurant. We're looking at ways of putting in a new system so that if we have a large group in our restaurant that we can still accomodate other guests. Because we would like all of our guests to take advantage of us having a restaurant in our hotel and not have to leave our hotel to get some dinner. On a positive note im glad you liked the location of our hotel we're right in the heart of city centre with all the shops you could think of within walking distance.
Once again im sorry that you couldnt have dinner with us and had to go elsewhere.
Thankyou for your your review.

Once again, not disappointed with a Premier Inn. I am so impressed with staff training at P.I's and how they manage to get all staff smiling, helpful and going that extra 'mile' to ensure customer satisfaction!

This trip was two days to meet up with friends from London - perfect mid way meeting point and literally right next door to the station so no time wasted in meeting, greeting and getting to the bar!

Loved Birmingham too by the way - very pleasantly surprised at how clean and exciting it looks now....the canal area was lovely for sitting out and eating. Of course we had to go for a curry on the Balti strip (or triangle?) Fabulous value and excellent service. Will be back to Brum at some point......... Thank you again Premier Inns

Room Tip: All rooms excellent. Our hotel had several hen parties in and never heard a thing....

Hello kathcody,
Thank you for your kind words about our hotel.
Im glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we pride ourselves on our customer service and making sure every guest enjoys their stay with us and you've hit the nail on the head, we go that extra mile for our guests. We're literally less than 5 minutes walk from the train station, were located on the pallisades ramp next to HSBC and McDonalds making it easy to spot us when you've got out of the station. Birmingham is amazing, there is a lot to see and do but the canals are by far our best feature to go and see on a sunny day.
Thankyou for your review, hopefully we'll see you again soon.

We have stopped at many Premier Inn's and this has claimed top spot. It was a 5m walk up from the station and we received a friendly welcome when we arrived. Room was easy to find and clean and so were the corridors and lift. We ate in the restaurant and received efficient and friendly service with good quality food. We ate at about 8.30 and were practically the only ones in there. It seems most people eat earlier and go out for the night as it was busy when we first arrived at the hotel. There were building works going on outside but we can honestly say we heard nothing. Also you can't open the windows because it's a tower block which filled us with dread but the air con was great and maintained the room temperature comfortably and without loads of noise. Would definately stay again.

Room Tip: We were on floor 3 in 308, the temp was good and it was quiet.

Hello Caroline U,
Thank you for your kind words about our hotel. Im glad we're at the top of your list for premier inns. And that you found our hotel clean and our staff friendly, the air conditioning can be controlled by the pannel in your room and also by reception if the panel in your room doesn't seem to be working, but in your case it was working perfectly, our windows are double glazed to keep out the noise of the city, helping you have a good night sleep
Il pass your nice comments onto our restaurant team.
Thankyou for your review, hopefully we will see you again soon.
