Just returned from a 2 night stay here as a base to visit Drayton Manor and Cadbury World with our 2 children aged 4 years and 8 months in a family room. Lovely welcome from the receptionist who took the time to speak to our 4 year old guessing we were taking him to Thomas Land. Pleasantly suprised to find the room spacious with a double bed, single bed and travel cot. Both the bedroom and bathroom where spotless. We were in a ground floor room which was close to the road but we were not disturbed by any traffic or anyone else! All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, always acknowledging us as we walked through the reception area.
We ate in the adjoining Table Table restaurant in the evening of both days and for breakfast. Advisable to book a table as it was busy both evenings even at 5pm. Staff here courteous but nothing more than neccessary (particularly the breakfast waitress!) The food was nothing more than you'd expect from a restaurant chain.
This is a perfect place to stay if visiting Drayton Manor/Thomas Land. It took us around 15 minutes to drive there. Not far from the M6 either.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Premier Inn Tamworth South. The UK's fist greenest hotel bringing together the best environmental initiatives to help us towards a greener future. With our 20 ensuite bedrooms, flat screen free view TVs, adjoining restaurant (The Centurion Table Table), Air-cooling and 24hr reception.We are one of a very select few that is a Green Hotel. Here is why we are Green.1)We heat and cool the hotel using the earth's natural energy using a special underground pump. Four heat probes, 130 metres below our hotel, take advantage of the earths natural energy to dump heat in the summer and cold in the winter.2) Re-using water. All toilet flushes use grey (recycled) water - water re-used from showers and baths plus 50% of rainwater from the roof. This provides 100% off all toilet water and will save 20% of the entire water usage.3) Sustainable wool from British sheep is used in the walls creating exceptionally efficient thermal and acoustic insulation. Heat loss of the hotel is reduced by 60%4) Solar power. Solar panels have been used on the hotel's south facing roof. They can produce hot water to the system with almost no energy used. The system is expected to generate 11.740kWhr per year - enough for 1000 baths a year!5) All lighting is low energy thanks to LED's that produce high light levels while only using 5 Watts per bulb, this coupled with motion detectors means the lights are not left on. An 80% saving against standard lighting methods.6) All materials used are locally and sustainable sources. Timber is used rather than concrete where possible and when concrete is used it is a low cement that has been locally sourced. Our use of carbon has been reduced by using natural resources, sustainable materials, such as external timber cladding, and recycled materials, such as plasterboard and rendering. ... more less
