I booked this hotel as we were staying overnight visiting a relative. I received an email a few days before check in, informing us of directions from motorway, carparking facilities etc. Easy to find from the M6. Car park is literally right next to hotel, although it isn't free, you can purchase a discounted ticket for £3.50 from 6pm-9am, or 24hour ticket for £8 which we did as was easier than finding somewhere else to park and then moving car back to hotel at 6pm and then having to get up early in the morning to move it before 9am, if you do the first option you can pay £1 per hour in between, but as I said before, was easier to go with the £8 option, I do feel that Premier Inn could have negotiated a free car parking service for their guests. The location for town centre is fabulous, it is directly opposite a shopping retail park and some restaurants and at the end/beginning of high street with main shops!
Upon check in we were greeted by a lovely receptionist (I think her name is Melanie) who is a credit to Premier Inn, she was very informative and wanted to make sure our stay was a good one, our room wasn't quite ready so we had a drink and dessert in the restaurant attached to hotel. We asked for an extra duvet for our bed due to me having a bad back, this was put on our mattress and made back up whilst we went out shopping. We also asked if we could buy some butter and use a knife for some scones which we had bought for breakfast, this was given without hesitation!!
Rooms: Premier Inn usual décor, very clean, our room 117 overlooked the canal wharf and was a lovely outlook in the morning with the sun on the water :) Kingsize bed, single bed and camp bed (camp bed is very very uncomfortable), desk, chair, plenty of nice lighting, hanging and drawer space, hairdryer, room temp control, bedside tables and light switches.
Bathrooms: Lovely power shower, shower/hair gel, soap dispenser, towels included.
We were on 1st floor, which was easily accessed by stairs or 2 lifts.
Would recommend a stay here for anyone needing to stay in Walsall or visit anyone!!
