“Fabulous Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at Solihull South M42 - very welcoming and so comfortable as always! Booked this particular hotel for convenience as our daughter was taking part in a National squash tournament at the Arden Squash Club. The rooms are always so clean and cosy. Cannot fault any part of the stay. We ate in The Plough (restaurant attached to this particular hotel) and the food and service was excellent. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed there as a family trip, had things to do in Solihull so was well located. The wifi was down and phones had no internet good access. Room was ok and was alright for the night we stayed. Booked on arrival a meal at the pub, which was just over the road, but needs a separate review (understaffed, poor service,etc)
Overall a good stay the only minus the pub option was our only alternative and the internet was down, really bad weather so not a lot to do.

Room Tip: Family room was good

Stayed here with Wife as a stop over while en route to the Lake district. Stayed at Premier Inns before and always find that you get for what you pay for. Sometimes this expression is used in a derogatory sense but not here. For £39 we had a clean and well laid out room, a comfortable bed and a bathroom which served it's purpose very well. The two receptionists we encountered, one at check in and one when we left were very professional, looked genuinely happy to see you and, even though we didn't have anything we needed in addition to the room, felt that they would have happily dealt with any requests with a smile.
Nipped across to the Harvester for a drink after we dropped our bags off and served a decent pint of Guinness. They serve food up until 10pm and you can book a table with reception. Breakfast looked tempting at around £8 for an all you can eat buffet style but left early so didn't try it.
Would definitely stay here again as only 2 minutes off the M42 so broke up our journey perfectly.

We always stayed here when visiting friends and family in the West Midlands, it's friendly staff make you feel welcome, it's clean and IF YOU DO HAVE A PROBLEM it's sorted out straight away. Ideally situated close yo motorway, and easy access into solihull town centre. Great taxi firm to use are A2B . Wonderful meals at the plough beefeater which is on the same site.

Room was clean room and fairly spacious. Bathroom clean and adequate. Liked the option of being able to choose pillows.
Two negatives: shower pressure and water pressure in basin not powerful enouigh. Additionally, found bed too small for a double which was the biggest minus for me.

The hotel, which is very conveniently sited close to a large Tesco and a great Notcutts garden centre as well as the motorway is really friendly, clean and welcoming. The staff are efficient and the rooms comfortable - good firm beds and a choice of pillows to suit anyone's preferences. Although close to main roads the hotel was quiet with good parking and a nice pub. I've stayed before and will certainly do so again.

I stayed here last night ahead of a works function close by. I'd booked a good two months in advance so was able to get the room for £29 a night, bargain! It looks like the bedrooms have had a facelift; mine was spacious, clean, nice temperature (hotel rooms are always too hot) blackout curtains that didn't let in any light with a very comfortable bed and two types of pillows. The bathroom was immaculate and I like the attention to detail, especially for the ladies, the large mirror lights up so its really handy for getting ready. There's another full length mirror by the door and a little unit for your luggage which has a built in hairdryer under another lighted mirror, again brilliant for getting ready and with a plug right underneath super handy for straightners. Overall the hotel was very quiet, I didn't hear anyone all night and slept like a baby. With this being so easy to reach from the motorway, with plenty of parking and with a great Beefeater right in front of you you really can't go wrong choosing this Premier Inn. I will happily stay here again and heartily recommend it to anyone else.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back of the hotel furthest away from the main car p...
