“One word - brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

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).

I stayed in this hotel one week for business purpose.
The hotel staff is very friendly and the entrance seems welcoming.
But this still does not make me come here again. The room smelled, on the bed beside the pillow were still hairs from a previous guest (maybe linnen has not been changed?), the dust bin has not been emptied for more then 2 days, the heating turned down automatically during the night so that it was 17 degrees C in the morning. Beside of this also the location itself was not very suitable for me, got stuck in traffic every morning ....
Also it was not really worth its money - they currently make advertising for rooms for 29 pound a day... my average rate was somewere more then 85 pound per day.

If you want a reasonably priced clean room this Premier hotel does not disapoint,it even comes with a 32" Tv.Just a few negatives,my room was on the ground floor but I could not leave the window fully open as the whole window would open,you could leave it on a locked posistion but this did not allow enough air to circulate,there is also an option of a fan but this was too noisy. The shower was fixed over a bath so you have to manouvre yourself to get a good wash or settle for a bath.One last thing the receptionist was allways missing on a morning?

Room Tip: Room 61 must be over a generator as the room floor vibrates at different intervals not allowing a go...

This is the first time we have stayed at a Premier Inn and I don't think it will be the last. The hotel was in a very quiet location with a Beefeater Inn also on site, which was great as there are not many other facilities nearby. The room was large and had a settee which I expect would have converted to another bed, so felt quite spacious, also had a large flat screen TV. Everything was very clean and I would only have a small number of comments regarding possible improvements. It was good to have the choice of a bath or shower, but you do have to step over the bath side to have a shower, quite a big step for the short in the leg!! Also there is no anti slip mat provided although there is a small anti slip area under the show, but a proper mat would be safer. The adjacent Beefeater Inn provided a good choice for an evening meal and the breakfast had a full range of cold and hot items, but the scrambled egg served was very pale and watery, I didn't comment at the time but really should have done. Overall a very good stay and would certainly return if in the area and would use other Premier Inns and hope for the same standard. I had noted that a number of previous guests had commented on how warm the hotel was, did not find this a problem in the day time but it was hot in the night.

Room Tip: See if you can get one of the larger rooms as there is a proper area for sitting.

The only dodgy thing about this Premier Inn was the weather!! Everyone was friendly and helpful and the inn itself was spotless. Good food at a good price. Was iudeal for the family to have a few rooms as we were attending a local wedding

Very warm welcome at the desk and the room was excellent and very clean. The beds for four of us were a bit crammed in, but didn't really matter as we only slept there. Staff in the adjoining restaurant were also very nice. Continental breakfast was very good value. We didn't have the cooked so couldn't comment on that! Under 16s eat for free which is excellent value.

All in all a very good stay, thoroughly recommend to those with children.
