I have stayed at this hotel a few times while visiting a trade show at the NEC. The standard is always as expected and does not disappoint. The rooms are clean and well organised, OK it's a no frills hotel but still, the room is large, there is a TV, shower gel, an efficient shower, a kettle and t-bags, plenty of storage and sockets, air conditioning and a very comfortable, large bed.
I feel a little awkward complaining, because I really like these hotels for business use. However, Premier Inn have made an utterly bewildering decision to remove telephones from all their rooms. In my short stay this time, I needed to get hold of reception twice. Once to order a taxi, and once to ask for an iron. I had to wend my way down two floors to reception twice for this. OK, this sounds a little churlish after all I am blessed with two legs and a reasonable sense of direction. However, that is not really the point. Particularly the taxi, I needed to order it and then get ready while it was arriving. Instead, I had to get ready, go down, order it and then sit and twiddle my thumbs waiting. It was really annoying (relatively). Premier Inn, what on earth possessed you to remove the phones? I won't stay again until you replace them.
