Premier Inn Solihull (Shirley) Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Shirley
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Stayed here for one night on business. Parking ok for a central location and a warm welcome at reception. Room clean and tidy but an older style Prem Inn (I think). However, perfectly adequate. Restaurant menu was limited and poor for any healthier choices so I ate out. Breakfast was ok but the cooked breakfast was served in what looked like a giant soup bowl. Very strange. There was also no freshly ground black pepper. Two needless things but easily remedied. Service at breakfast was very good and quick.

Last month I stayed at the Premier Inn at Stourbridge, which I found to be a very acceptable budget hotel. The Shirley Premier Inn was equally comfortable, clean, quiet. Breakfast at the pub/restaurant was very good. All staff I encountered were cheerful and helpful. Plenty of onsite parking. That was all I was looking for and this hotel more than delivered what I wanted. Will agree with other comments that room not quite as warm as I would have liked but luckily it wasn't that cold when I was there. Should be taken on board by the management however as winter nights draw in. Overall highly recommended - I would definitely stay here again.

Service in hotel ok, but when you need to eat in restaurant it's chaos!! Long wait to be served as no staff behind bar, meals don't come out together, long waits for meals. Junior staff friendly, senior staff clearly don't want to work there. Noisy rooms, squeaky bed, and no bath just a shower. A disappointing experience of a premier inn which normally are so much better than this!!

Spent a night here when visiting Shirley and it's location was perfect, very central on main road. Luckily no noise from the road, or the pub adjoining the premier inn. Had dinner at the pub which was two for one. Standard pub fare, service a bit slow, but no problems. Room was clean and comfortable but strong air freshener smell as if someone had been smoking and the staff had tried to mask the smell. Bed comfortable and heating adjusted to suit. Staff friendly and pleasant.

It's not exactly luxury, but it is cheap, clean, comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Free car parking and our room was much bigger than expected. Only problem with the room was that it was cold, even when turning the electric heater right up it didn't make much difference due to the size of the room. The bed was very comfy and we slept well. There was a lot of noise in the morning though so didn't quite manage a lie in! The adjoining pub was great, I believe it has recently been renovated. Great food and two for one on all main meals. We didn't opt to have breakfast as £12 a head is a bit steep when you are trying to have a budget stay....the free wifi also only lasts 30 mins. You can get free wifi in the adjoining pub though if you sign up with them. We would definitely stay again.

A pleasant-looking building with plenty of car parking space and friendly staff. The scuffed paintwork in the entrance made it look shabby but the room was spacious, well designed, comfortable, clean and attractive. Noise was not a problem except perhaps at 11 o'clock at night with the windows open.

The adjoining pub/restaurant was uninspiring but the breakfast room was pleasant and relaxing. However, the cutlery was the greasiest I've ever seen. You could change a gear box with the amount of grease on the knives.

I changed my accommodation requirements slightly which entitled me to a £6 refund but their card machine wasn't working and I had to prompt them to make the refund a week later.
