Good points: Very easy to find (few minutes’ drive from M42); plenty of free parking spaces, hotel set well back from a quiet road and surrounded by fields – so no traffic noise; friendly and efficient receptionist at check-in; rooms refurbished to a very high standard (mine had a huge wall-mounted LCD TV – not what you’d expect in a budget hotel!), clean and comfortable; good shower; decent cooked breakfast; good value at £62 for the night; only a short drive from Birmingham’s NEC.
Bad points – Daft toilet paper dispenser in bathroom that distributes one sheet at a time – bring back normal loo roll! Other gripe (no fault of Premier Inn) was lack of any signal on my mobile phone (T-Mobile/Orange). But this is a rural location. Managed to make calls in one corner of the car park, but no reception indoors. However the hotel has WiFi, although I didn’t use it (only first half-hour is free, apparently).
