This is our second stay at this Premier Inn. We use this hotel as a base when visiting the NEC. We also really like Solihull as the shopping is great and the people are really friendly. We had an accessible room on the first floor.
Location - a 10 minute walk from the town centre which has a wonderful shopping mall with stores such as John Lewis and House of Fraser. There is a wide choice of restaurants locally as well including our favourite, 'Giraffe'.
Room - accessible for guests with limited mobility. Wet room with all the appropriate support aids and alarm. The shower was great with lots of hot water. Sliding door with wide access. The bed was very comfortable indeed with a choice of pillows and great quality bed linen. The towels were big and fluffy. The whole room was clean and air conditioned. Lots of plug sockets which is helpful.
Staff - really professional, helpful and friendly. They arranged for one of the disabled parking spaces to be cleared. Staff do all that they can to ensure they are used correctly which is a nice change. We had to cut our visit short and they were very understanding.
Food - we had breakfast at the Thyme restaurant. It was cooked to order and was really great. There was also a good choice available for a continental breakfast if you did not want a cooked one. The coffee was really good and the service was very slick. Very good value for money at £8.75 each.
We will be returning later in the year and are looking forward to our next stay.

- Superbly located in the centre of Solihull, opposite Lode Lane car park & a short distance from the Touchwood shopping centre. 0.5 miles from Solihull train station and a 10 minute journey to Birmingham. Our Solihull Town Centre Premier Inn has everything you'd expect, incredibly comfy beds in every room with a Thyme Restaurant serving a mix of traditional and contemporary dishes. We have no parking at the hotel for our guests but we do recommend Lode Lane car park directly opposite the hotel, which offers overnight parking and charges will apply with restricted opening and closing times. ... more less
